    Multi-Vitamins. How Often?

    How often do you take your multis?

    What is the advantage to taking them twice a day as opposed to once a day?

    I take twinlabs dual tabs. One in the morning only with my protein shake. Im thinking about taking two a day though. One in the moring and one in the night. Would anyone go against two dual tabs a day? Is there a benifit in taking two a day?

    I take it once a day,but i have been using a generic store brand.Maybe I should fork out some cash and buy a good quality multivitamin.

    I take Usana's multi vits and minerals plus antioxidants extra E,C,fish oil,calcium,chlorella.I love the grape seed extract.The cpmpany definitely has some of the best available.
    People into sports and weight training need even more than the average person.One a days don't cover it really.I gave up my Twin Lab after using the Usana supps as the products had a much higher rating and certainly give me alot more energy.

    I purchase a high potency multi, split it in 2, and take them 12 hours apart. This reduces the amount that is pissed away.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    NMM, I have to say tha centrum is a waste of money,low potency,low bioavailability with too many fillers and binders.Definitely sub standard quality.You be better off witn Source ,Douglas Labs or Usana etc.

    It depends on what the dosage is.

    Most of the water erm... dissolved (?) vitamins the bodys got 3 hours to make use of. So taking them twice a day would give the body 6 h instead of once a day and only 3 hours.

    GNC is over priced and quality is sub standard and definitely not all mutli's are created equal.
