I like popping pills. Throughout most of my life I've taken vitamins on and off. I go through periods where I'll take just a one-a-day type, and periods where I'll take 20 pills a day. Aside from the fact that I fully realiz(s)e that we pee most of them away, I often wonder if they're hurting or helping me since I eat really healthfully anyhow. I've read lots of books regarding vitamins and there are arguments and research for both sides - megadoses of vitamins are helpful, megadoses of vitamins destroy us, we get enough in a good diet, our environment and all the processing they do to food causes us to NEED supplements. I know also from experience that even though we think lots of vitamins are harmless, they alter our blood composition and if we're stupid about the pills we pop we could wind up in trouble. Too much B12 had doctor's baffled with my bloodwork many years ago. Ahhh yes... So I started this thread cuz for the past several months I've not really been taking any and just realized today that my energy has been real low. Gonna start again and see if there's any difference. Vitamins I generally pop: A good multi, a B complex, C, E, beta carotene, selenium, chromium picolinate (diabetes runs in my family and I read it's a good preventative thing), zinc, and some occasional herbal crap that I'm quite sure has only a plecebo effect if even that. How bout yoooz guyz? Vitamins, no vitamins, which ones, and why?
