    I have easio but it isn't "much" cheaper. It certainly dosn't taste as good. Not to mention they are still full of sugar unless you choose the horrible ones. Fat burning tablets are the biggest load of shite ever! People who take them are the people who won't put 100% into their diet and training. Even if they do work what sort of habit does it form fir people? What's the point of a b12 injection? Allot of people would be better of picking up healthy eating habits. Having said that if a blood test showed you needed it go for it.

    I don't find the "horrible" ones horrible. Personal tastes i guess. Inner health plus is much more expensive, so are yakults. In my opinion and from what i have compared. I'm just throwing it out there. If you eat yogurt you might want to look into it.

    Besides, what is the point of taking anything? You could say that people shouldn't be taking protein powders and all the stuff they are taking. You can't possibly eat enough vegetables to equal what is in some of these pills. That's why people take them.

    Pills can help you but they won't do the job for you with regards to weight loss, and no not all people who take them are lazy and can't commit.

    I've also taken cholesterol reducing supplements from health food stores.

    I thought of something else that is pretty good. Joint Care with Glucosamine and Chondroitin + MSM. Older people take that, people with arthritis, joint problems, sport injuries.

    There's so much out there it can become confusing.

    Edit: Sometimes you can buy empty capsules and fill them yourself. I really liked spirulina, i think it helped me with my energy levels. I went through it really fast though, that's why i switched from the tablets to powder.

    Some people put psyllium on their cereal or in shakes. Lots of old people buy it, i think it's like a laxative for them. A health shop i used to go to would sell bags of psyllium for 1 or 2 bucks, it was kept in the fridge. Better than buying Metamucil.

    Warning : these are just my opinions and may change at any time lol

    And a blood test could tell you that couldn't it noobs?

    We could name everything in a chemist and health food shop and give positives and negatives. Super foods is the name of the thread and though I do supplment the more I get from my food the happier my body is. That's my belief anyway. My problem with fat burning pills is they are designed to assist with weight loss and after uneducated people read the blurb on the side they are convinced it's a real option. They are not a super food just a waste of money. (however pills that Help your thyroid or increase free testosterone etc that list increased metabolism as a side benifit, well I can't argue with that. They aren't called Hypoburn or anything like that.)

    Yeah mate geneally, only problem is you will get a "range" as you have found out with other things.

    And one thing dr's dont understand is optimal health.

    My general gp didnt understand why 8.6 total tetsosterone range 8-29 was not an ideal thing for me being a 23 year old male...

    After all it was within range...

    2 words i hate, within range is not optimal nor should it be the baseline for your health, inregards to SOME things not all.. For exmaple blood p.h well that has a very healthy range and that is accepted.

    But if you have a look into orthomolecular medicine (i just bought this book off ebay Orthomolecular Medicine For Everyone - eBay, Nonfiction, Books. (end time 07-May-10 00:26:09 AEST) ) RDI and optimal levels are 2 totally different things.

    I still need to do reading into b vitamins... I am going to be taking 3000mg of niacin a day in divided doses in hopes to come off effexor totally.


    Everyone body is different, somepople might absorb things better then others so a 1 glove fits all approach to reccomendaitons in regards to vitamin supplements. You can also get b12 nasal spray on line thus not needing to to worry about injections at all. This is one thing i am going to be looking at.

    It depends on the doctor. You have to be lucky to get a doctor who will work with naturopaths. Most doctors don't want to know about alternatives, and then there are naturopaths who don't want to know about anything that isn't natural.

    I'm some where in the middle with my beliefs, but i always look at the natural alternatives first.

    The main thing is that you can't just assume what people are telling you is correct, or just because it worked for them that it will work for you. Listen to your own body and make an informed decision.

    How I would give for someone who could judge interactions and advise you on the same.

    I didnt see a mention of Adaptogens here... so throwing this out for general wellbeing :

    Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera)
    Brahmi / Gotu Kola
    Liv 52

    ^Somethings Iv used in the past.
