I'm trying to do that :o trying to eat healthier so that there is no need to take tablets. I haven't taken tablets for a while. I haven't taken protein powder for a long time either. I primarily want to avoid that because its expensive though.

Exactly why I started too. Those things are expensive! Then I read about the Toxicity of taking over the amount you should, and adding Multi Vitamins would make the problem worse. Good luck man!

That's what I was wondering, especially about B12.

I take as little as I feel necessary for myself. A multi-vitamin as my diet isn't usually all that well-balanced, glutamine and a few scoops of protein powder on lifting days and that's it. There isn't really anything that works wonders, so why waste the money?

I take only vitamins. I feel i'm on the safe side with them as i think out food is deprived of their natural amount of nutritients.
So i take a multivitamin and brewer's yeast.
As soon as i can afford, i'm gonna get me some non-soy protein powder.
I love protein shakes :roll:

It's yeast ;) :D
It's a byproduct of the beer industry, therefore it's quite cheap.
It contains a stack of B vitamins, minerals, trace elements, protein/essential amino acids.
On the package it says it's for healthy nails, hair and skin :D But i take it because B vitamins play a major role in energy and protein metabolism ;)

I still take vitamins and minerals, although not as much as I used to.

I used to take Brewers Yeast too - been meaning to get it again - for the reasons Alex has already stated. Lot's of B Vit's very cheap.

Go for Brewer's Yeast in tablet form. Do not ever buy the powder - it is truly hideous and virtually undrinkable.

I hope everyone is taking B-12 at least.

Kollision?

I take B-12, calcium and flax seed oil.
