Vitamin Usage

Are you supposed to stop vitamins (not necessarily body building ones) for a period of time rather than use them daily indefinitely? I take a multi-vitamin, vitamin B complex, and salmon oil. Are there any good ones to take for active people/weight lifters that I’m not taking?

I don’t see a reason to stop using a multi. Unless you are cleansing.

Waht are you using. I recommend animal pak for athletes. Be sure to take your b comp during a different tim of day than your other vitties. Also be sure to eat a Protein plus Fat meal just before taking them.


You eat food every day. Multi-vitamins are a substitute for naturally occuring vitamins, so I would use them every day.
