I take a few different products, all of which seem to be usefull and credible, but I end up having to take in a lot of pills. I don't mind though really, I've been working out for a while and its not a big deal at all for but does it seem like too much?
Here's my list:
Animal Pak Multi - Pack of 11 vitamins (taken in the morning with fish oil)
Fish Oil - 2 pills
Green Bulge (creatine product) - 5 pills an hour before workout
BCAAs - 7 Pill an hour before workout
Cissus (Joint Health product) - 2 pills (one in the morning one 6 hours later)
Now creatine and BCAAs can both be taken in powder form but i'm in university and would just prefer to take the pills if I have an option. Animal Pak I do like and would not substitute for another multivitamin, it has an awesome track record I doesn't compare to the GNC multi.

Nah man your good with all that, if you took ALL of them on an empty stomach or something it might mess with absorption since some of those may be fat soluble; but yea your good.
If you are still worried you can just make the simple switch from BCAA pills to Xtend, PW or Core ABC(or other BCAA drink) and from green bulge to green mag."Every journey of 1000 miles begins with one step"-- Chinese Proverb

I don't see an issue with what you are using. I personally like to use capsules for some supplements and powders for others. I use BCAA caps with each of my meals, Multi-V with 2 of my meals. Thermadrene upon waking and prior to my workout and some amino tabs throughout the day as well. No problems with digestion whatsoever!On the web: www.SportPharma.com
