LGP thread of vitamins, minerals, nutrients, dietary supple

Postby ville5 on Mon Jul 14, 2014 7:43 pm

With all the information/disinformation on these products out there, it's hard to discern the truth. Let's here what the board members use and how it benefits them. Hopefully specific brands/products could be discussed. I could go in a drug store and
see 3 or 4 brands of the same product. One could provide the benefits it claims while the other 3 are not even close.

All I use is a men's one a day but I'm sure I could benefit from more.

Cholest-Off is 100% legit. It costs a fortune in stores, order it on Amazon for a much cheaper price.

COQ10 is another very important supplement, very key in heart health and preventing cardiac events.

What about the baby aspirin? I love chewing that stuff. Mother Factorial would crush up aspirin in a spoon and mix in some sugar and orange juice when I was young.

For a girl? What is she trying to do? Gain muscle mass? Dies she play sports?

The answer is really protein. Women generally don't bulk up naturally even with natural supplements. Get her into a gym with free weights that allow Olympic lifting and get her a weight lifting trainer.

I also take aspirin almost every day. Potentially bad ticker and all.

She want's a bigger butt for starters. I keep telling her that in 10 years the girls with the "round" bodies will most likely be the ones fighting weight gain.

As do I. There's also been a lot of recent research showing some pretty significant anti-cancer effects from regular aspirin use.

Lots of milkshakes and squats / deadlifts at the gym.

Lactose intolerant but I do get her the whole chocolate milk that's safe to drink.

Yup. Squats and deadlifts. Any number of glute exercises really.

I am a senior citizen and have been taking supplements for many years. I can't prove if they actually work as I don't want to quit taking them just to find out. I am still fairly active after abusing my body (misspent youth) for many years. IMO, they have helped, but like I said, can't prove it. I get most of my stuff from vitaminworld.com. My daily stuff:

Multi-vitamin designed for us over 50 crew.
Omega 3-6-9 (basically fish oil)
Lutein (for my eyes)
Some extra vitamin D3 (doctor's suggestion)
B-12 Complex
Couple baby aspirin

I also try to eat yogurt two or three times a day and drink a protein drink like Boost or Ensure. The yogurt really seems to work because if I miss a day or two, I can tell. Usually have a protein bar or two also.

COQ10 is a perfect example. Advertised as having many health benefits. But if you try to research you get conflicting reports. One report will say brandX is awesome while another will say it's useless or not as effective as it claims. How do you differentiate the good stuff from the bad?
It kind of reminds of the food industry and their deceptive practices. There are reports most olive oil found in supermarkets is garbage and not as advertised. But with the highest cost of food being advertising, you'd never know this.

Only supps I take are workout related. Optimum Nutrition 'Essential Amino Energy' for pre-workout, and MHP 'Dark Matter' for recovery.

PensFanInDC wrote:Yup. Squats and deadlifts. Any number of glute exercises really.

Just make sure that you break 90-degrees on the downstroke, right? I've been told the point is to get your butt as close to your heels as possible, and if you do not break 90 you are only working your quadriceps and the glutes are sort of inactive.

I'm a fan of squat pulses (sumo starting position, squat to just below 90-degrees, then pulse up and down like 2" on each rep, flexing the glutes), and dynamic/plyometric squats. The latter is high impact, so not for everyone, but it effectively develops power without necessarily needing to add resistance/weight. I particularly remember it as part of my dryland regimen in college.

A** to grass as they say. There is argument over whether you should let your knees go over your toes during a squat. I am in the camp that believes that it's fine if they do. For a 90 degree squat don't let them go over. For a sumo squat (as you mentioned) they almost have to.

My wife's ability and flexibility in squats mesmerizes me. She can be taylor sitting and then just put her feet flat on the ground and stand up. She can also go a** to grass with her feet flat on the ground. My ankle mobility is terrible and I can barely get past 90 degrees with my feet flat. If I have a bar to hold onto I can go almost all the way down but without it I'm useless.

The other thing to be careful about with milkshakes is you need to be sure you have a large yard, for when all the boys are brought to it.
