Subject: RE: Soup to Nuts - Letsrun Train Me
I take Vitamin A, all the Vitamin B's separately, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Biotin, Omega-3 Fish Oils, Folate, Cobalt and Copper (for RBC formation) with dinner, because a few are fat-soluble.
I take IRON with Vitamin C (better absorption) and L-Carnitine in the morning, on an empty stomach.
It costs a LOT more than if I took nothing, but the health problems that forced me to stop running seem better when I take it all. Also, when you aren't eating an awful lot besides the whey protein, you aren't getting enough of the vitamins every day ... even for RBC production.
And for those that are clamoring to type that I am going to overdose on the fat-soluble ones, wait for it, I got checked and even though I am outside what I thought was A LOT, I was deficient for Vitamin D, 17 or something. The Doc said they like to see you between 30 and 100. So for those familiar, the typical capsule is 400IU because that is the RDA. I was taking 1000 IU daily before I got tested as deficient. They put me on a prescription of 50,000 IU taken 3 X a week for 12 weeks!!!
It only got me up to 63 or so ... mcg/dcl or some such unit. Vitamin E was in a normal range, as were the B-vitamins, but NONE were high. So at least for me that "toxicity" theory was not true.
