My doctor told me to take a multivitamin for the next two months because my diet has been really shitty recently. What is the best brand of multivitamin? I prefer natural shit.

I take myprotein's multi. dosage wise it is pretty close to opti-men, and if it is the same quality as their protein it should be pretty good.

Opti-men is like #6 for men's vitamins.

>GNC that high up the list
Do people actually believe this "ranking"?
lol.
>>
>>35138357
I saw this and was wondering how legitimate it's recommendations are. How do I know that the brands at the top aren't put there by companies paying for those spots?
>>
I don't care for multi's because the dosage is usually laughable.

Go out and get:

>fish oil (~200-400 DHA and ~500-700 EPA)
>vitamin D3, 2000 IU. Take with your fish oil. (stay consistent, it takes weeks to replenish your vitamin D if you are low)
>Zinc and Magnesium, they often come together with Calcium
>Vitamin C, 1000mg (optional)

Drink at LEAST a liter of water a day, maybe get some green tea in there. While you don't want to drink too much water and flush out water-soluble goodies, replace all soda and energy drinks with water. That shit depletes you. Limit your caffeine to 200-400mg / day depending on your size if you can help it.

And eat your veggies, breh. I make a giant smoothie with a shit ton of kale and berries and protein and yogurt every morning.

If you have a better source of rankings I am all ears. This is just the only one I have ever seen.

>>35138409
No idea. Not really sure why a brand would pay to be anywhere but #1. or generally have the accuracy of their label called into question.
>>
>>35138429
>Limit your caffeine to 200-400mg / day
why?
>>
>>35138429
Are you not worried about the high amount of oxalates you are consuming with so much kale?

On a more serious note, get lots of veggies, put it next to your chicken and rice or whatever and it will spice things up real good.

Love veggies, they are the soul of food.

I just meant that I prefer if there weren't any heavy metals, artificial sweeteners, etc.

I'm only doing it because my doctor recommended I take one for a short period to get my B12 and other levels up after seeing my blood work.
>>
>>35140283
Natural means nothing anon.
The only thing it can mean is that evolution has had time to make your body accustomed to it, like hour our bodies can deal with ethanol but not methanol.
Them getting the mineral or vitamin from different sources doesn't matter, as long as it's pure.
>>
>>35138460
safe levels are 400mg a day
performance enhancing doses are 750mg
shit over 1200mg can risk failing a drug test for too much caffeine (if you play pro sports)
>>
I'm also interested in this topic.

Now Foods Adam is a great multi. Anything from Solgar is good. Fuck Optimum Nutrition.
>>
>>35142797
do you have something to back it up?
Or its just a personal preference?
>>
Avoid any that makes you piss highlighter fluid (Opti-Men). That means the dosage is too high and you're just pissing everything out.
>>
>>35143147
Yes and no. The yellow color is from B vitamins. Some people actually need high doses due to training intensity or volume, what's not needed is, yes, pissed away. Most vitamins, however, are fat soluble and are absorbed or shit away.
>>
>>35143122
Now Foods and Solgar are solid. Google searches should show you that. ON, while maybe legit now, have a shady past, and that's enough to keep me away from them.
>>
>>35142797
it also has saw palmetto in it, which can cause post-finasteride-type balding once you stop using it
>>

>>35142797
It's interesting that Solgar isn't USP certified, whereas something like Nature Made is. It seems like it would be the other way around, based on the packaging.
>>
>>35143411
Yeah, I tend to stay away from anything that looks like a "fitness supplement" by it's branding, packaging, etc. Just give me some pure, unflavored whey and supplements.
