I take ON Opti-Men, they definitely help out during the day but the only negative is the size and taste of them.

If you actually do a serious workout when you're at the gym, the only thing you should be taking is Animal Pak. End of story.

I just finished a tub of Paks not too long ago. They were pretty good, but I wanted to try something new this time around so I bought a tub of Gasparari Anavite. Not sure how effective they'll be or if I'll even notice a difference. I'll let you know.

Lots of different advice in here. I doubt you'll get any answer based on any fact.

IMO, if you want a real answer, you need to look at a few things. Look at your diet and look at important nutrients you are missing. Look for a vitamin that fills those voids.

Also look at the workouts you are doing and the intensity. You may need to supplement more if you are very intense.

Takes a bit of research, but I don't think there is a magical answer out there.

These 3 would be my top picks for off the shelf, bodybuilding based multi's. Multi's have a lot of gimmicks in them just like any other bodybuilding supplements, the best multi is one you can dose out yourself, but very few people want to go through that trouble.

Orange Triad is excellent for joint support if you hit the weights hard and heavy.

Over-priced / Over-rated - marketing hype

Multivitamin

I have a masters in both fitness and nutrition, as well as being 1 of 2 certifird master trains in Florida.
If you are working out heavy, I suggest Gaspari Anavite or Animal Pak.
They are both the best available.
Check online prices, they are reasonable.
Eat, slepp and train hard..

Would suggest you look into Usana. I take their multivitamin which actually is two different types, "chelated mineral" and "mega antioxidant" which together are called their "essentials", gets a little pricey but other then Shaklee products have not felt near its equivalent.
