Hm thats good but I can't get stuff off internet. Is there any stores you go to to get multi-vitamins?

06-15-2005, 06:34 AM
I used to use the GNC brand, but switched to ALN. I don't think it makes a huge difference either way.

GNC is ****ing expensive, I went there yesterday for multivitamins and I'm like "**** that" then I went to a different store called Popeyes Supplements and got pretty much the same thing for $10 less.

I just buy your run of the mill average centrum or whatever multivitamin.

06-15-2005, 12:14 PM
I like Now Foods' 75+ multi. I am sure you can find a retailer who carries it (http://www.nowfoods.com/index.php?cat_id=190).

06-15-2005, 02:50 PM

I got mine at alberstons. They had buy one bottle get one free. Was too lazy to goto Costco when I ran out.

Its just a store brand centrum knockoff.

so theirs no particular vitamins to look for in a multi vitamin? Just get what ever?

06-15-2005, 04:11 PM
You should be getting most of your vitamins from your daily diet. The multi is just there for back-up.

06-15-2005, 04:14 PM
A multivitamin just fills in any gaps that you might miss with your diet. You really shouldn't be concerned about it. If you are interested in which vitamins might be more important than others (in regards to training), then take a look at what's included in ALN's multivitamin.

yeah I checked on fitday and im fine in like everything, I think that has to do alot with eating a bowl of Total protein cereal with my oatmeal in the morning. It has like 100% of everything.
