    Most vitamines should be taken with a meal that contains fat.

    I would imagine the other supplements would have directions?

    BTW, I wouldn't take vitamine D or E. Get your D from sunlight. Taking to much vitamine E has been shown to cause some problems.

    And I would take calcium with magnesium. You can usually find a supplement that contains both.

    You need vitamin C? Eat an orange. It's more than 100% of your daily value. Calcuim? Drink dairy. Some is even fortified with more calcium. If you stay outside for 20 minutes the sun makes your skin produce Vitamin D.

    You're breaking the bank with all these supplements!

    I know what I said wasn't related to what you asked

    Off the top of my head I know that vitamins A,D,E, and K are the only fat soluble vitamins so they collect in your fat tissues unlike water soluble vitamins where you excrete out the extra. I don't exactly know what happens to the body, but constant over consuming causes problems.

    wikipedia also has articles for other vitamins as well. Check em out!


    I take a multivitamin around noon, and another one at night before I go to bed. I'm not sure if it's the optimal way to do it. But it is better than nothing, right?

    Get a cheap multivitamin (they work just as well as the expensive ones). A 300 pack of Target brand "Centrum" was around $6. Contains 100% of nearly everything and is fine. You don't need super concentrated specialty vitamins.
    As for Omega-3 pills, anytime is fine. Try eating more fish though and that'll solve your problem.
    Green tea extract pills are great for many reasons, but may contain caffeine so avoid at night.
    Calcium you should get from milk and other dairy products. Taking in too much calcium at once can actually cause problems.
    Ditch the Ginkgo pills.

    In the morning, with a meal, take the multi+green tea.

    Another option, Centrum Performance (multi+ginseng and ginkgo):

    I recommend Higher Power Green tea extract.

    I've ventured down the path of supplementing vitamins (E, D, C, etc) and found out rather quickly that it's really not smart at all.

    I ended up overdosing on D and passing out after I left the gym. You really only need a multivitamin and maybe fish oil or flax seed. Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, stay away from vitamin supplements.

    Then again, if I feel a cold coming on I will supplement extra vitamin C. But that's it!

    Take 1 multivitamin in the morning with breakfast.

    Take fish oil whenever.

    Save money and eat an egg yolk. It's got Vitamin A, D, E, K, and a ton of other nutrients.

    it sounds like you just went to your local grocery store and bought a bunch of stuff...

    most could be had in a solid multi...

    there are a few worth supplementing otherwise such as calc+mag and C... good to have around ...

    lot better stuff you could have spent your money on though.

    i'd drop most of it though, and go with supps that do more... i.e. straight omega 3 in higher dose, b6-b12, and better nootropics... (just better stuff you could have gotten for your items)

    personally i take them with my post workout shake when nutrient uptake is above average, and before bed when the body grows and can use them better for rebuilding.

    "Modern man is conditioned to expect instant gratification but any success or triumph realized quickly, with only marginal effort is necessarily shallow. Meaningful achievement takes time, hard work, persistence, patience, proper intent and constant self-awareness. The path to such success is punctuated by failure, consolidation and renewed effort. Personal reconstruction is art." - MFT
