Posted 21st Dec 2019
If anyone wants any supplement advice I'm happy to give people advise on any area of sports supplementation as i feel alot of people are wasting their money on inadequate and poorly dosed products.

Are vitamins any good? Plenty of recent research has shown they do little good and can even do harm

Vitamins are definitely good but going over recommended daily amounts is unnecessary, only really take them from a supplemtent source if you aren't hitting your recommended amounts / deficiencies.

You said vitamins are good and is unnecessary to go over the daily amount, but the one you just recommended, they nearly all go well over the daily amount?

Yes it's unnecessary to go over your RDA but i didn't say it wouldn't be beneficial. Besides things like the iodine, copper etc are all dosed with a near enough a balanced diet in mind.
Certain vitamins you can take in very amounts for very little extra benifits/risk and harm but others can't go massively over as negatives can occur e.g. Too much potassium will effect muscle function and potentially a change in heart rhythm.

What whey protein powder do you recommend?


Budget - reflex whey (about £15 for 1kg depending on where you get it from)
Every day run of the mill - optimum nutrition Isolate £18.99 - 900g
Great taste and flavour - ISO yummy sports - 25-30 per kg

Specialist protein powder - strom sports nutrition velociwhey £45 per 1.2kg but contains velositol which increases muscle protein synthesis. Makes 24g work more like 40g

Is it true supplements avoid food regulations bcos they’re not classed as food even though we ‘eat’ them?
I'll give you advice. Avoid. Eat well instead. There you go.

No supplements are under regulations especially in the UK. But its easy to get a pre workout with some banned ingredients (banned doesn't equal bad, the uk has a weird quirk where if something wasn't in foods which have not been widely consumed by people in the EU before May 1997 then they usually get banned e.g. Dmha)

Yeah but food can't replicate alot of effects of supplemtents, unless i start biting into a English walnut tree for my Dmha
So a quick Google and all these credited people writing warnings about dmha supplement are wrong then. I've never heard of it, however I've never seen any evidence of supplements and there benefits, other than doctors prescribing iron ect. Enough TV programs on this. Watch and make your own mind up.

So a quick Google... , you'll also find "credited people" talking about how 5G is turning brains into scrambled eggs.
Each to their own,.
I am constantly tired and trying to pinpoint what sort of deficiency I may have. First I thought it was C, so I have a berroca a day now. Plus an iron and multivitamin tablet, Done that for about 2 months but was still knackered.

Any thoughts? Vitamin D maybe, I'm not sure. Maybe it's and age thing, love a nap. But hate always yawning and being tired!

Best bit of advice would be to speak to your GP who can get you a blood test, i know in the US there are home kits you can get that you send away but because we have the NHS, go to your GP.
Also make sure your sleep and water intake is suitable for you as that can effect energy etc.

Also Yamamoto Nutrition Multi Vitamin could help depending on your possible deficiencies

I actually had a blood test as I thought I thought I might have CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) or ME, but they all came back clear. Luckily I guess, but also a bit annoying at the same time as I know now there is nothing medically wrong with me, I must just be lazier than most maybe
