I'm presently using TRIBEX, ECA and an array of vitamins and minerals (B complex, B12, Niacin, Folate, ZMA, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Lecithin, Omega-3 gelcaps).
I'm in my forties, my goal is to maintain all the muscle that I have and get lean. My body type has always been kind of stubborn about holding onto adipose. Even when I've been thin, I haven't had cut abs.
I feel great and my doctor is pleased, i.e., I think the array of supps that I do is good because I can really feel a downgrade in my energy, strength and mood if I get lazy and curtail.
My diet is very strict and I've been shedding pounds gradually, getting lean and making progress toward my lean goal and the proverbial six pack abs.
My question: Is there anything in the commercial fillers used by vitamin and mineral manufacturing companies that is contrary to my goals? And what is that stuff?
I ingest quite a few capsules and gelcaps each day. Do companies in general do a good job of ensuring that fillers are 'inert' substances or do there exist fillers that are loaded with sh*tty calories that might be undermining some of my goals.
Thanks in advance.
