    Ah, thanks for a good thread (once again) Guys.

    I've honestly never taken suppliments (dont even like energy drinks) and I've never had a problem with energy or my health. But looking at my diet i get enough of everything so i think i'm all good there. Well, ok, i probly could cut down on sugar...

    Also: we have a small orange plantation- fresh squeezed orange juice FTW. Serious guys- best start to the day.


    Chaos? Panic?... Disorder??

    yeah...just out of curiosity...what is the word out there on the 3-6-9? That is what I am taking at the moment. It's 1000 mg combo of Flax, fish, borage and primrose oils.

    EPA: 270 - 297 mg
    DHA: 180 - 198 mg
    ALA: 675 - 975 mg
    Linoleic Acid: 507- 780 mg
    GLA: 72 - 78 mg
    Oleic Acid: 202 - 444 mg

    Really not enough in the EPA and DHA side of things.

    Man, it is very hard to say take this much or that much of EPA and DHA but you should maybe think about moving into the grams range. A few grams a day combined EPA and DHA.

    Or you could do what I do and get about 6-12 grams a day of combined EPA and DHA.

    That is one of the problems I always see with people who decide to start taking this or that OMEGA-3 supplement. They barely take any. They treat it like a drug. It is not a drug. It is fat. It is food. 500 mgs a day isn't really going to do you much good.

    Sorry about almost going into a rant there. But basically the answer (on EPA and DHA at least) is that it is probably a safe bet to take more. Your joints will at least like you more.

    Having read that article posted above, you just dont need to take omega 6 supplements, as you get shite loads of it in an ordinary diet. Not sure on omega 9 though!

    a balanced diet is all you need. Taking pills or supplements is just pissing money away, not to mention potentially damaging to your health.

    Since the dawn of time people have functioned very well under physical duress that far exceeds what we experience on far less nutrition than is readily available today to those of us with internet access.

    and out!

    You might just want to add an omega-3 only supplement so you can get more omega-3s specifically.

    Sorry to dig this one back up again!

    So, I've got a good omega 3 supplement, a Vit B Complex, a slow release Vit C 500mg, and multivit/multimineral. Going well at the moment.

    I've just started lifting weights again, on top of all other work and was now considering a Glutamine/BCAA/Creatine supplement. So, can you get all 3 of these in 1 handy capsule? I cant seem to find any, so I'm guessing not, but if you've got any pointers... In the UK the biggest producer of supplements is Maximuscle, and they do a product called Cyclone, that has this and Protein in it, but its a powder and I'm not enamoured about having to make up shakes at work after working out at lunch...

    Honesty... do you have a Holland & Barrett near you?
    They have ridiculous offers on all the time, and they change regularly.
    I beat bulk internet prices in there comfortably, and I didn't have to buy 4 tonnes of stuff to get a good price.
    Give them a look if you get the chance.

    I get all my stuff from Holland and barretts - been taking omega 3s for over a year now and never paid full price. They have really helped my crap back. Just started taking glucosamine and chondroitin too. Need to look after my joints now I am getting on a bit!
