I am interested in finding out what sort of supplements you guys to improve your training and diving.

What combination of vitamins work best?

I really know next to nothing about this topic so any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Hmmmm steroids! :duh just kidding
Lots of vitamin C to prevent the scruvy... YARRR!
I don't take vitamins to improve performance, I didn't feel it had any affect on it. I take them in a hope that it might improve my not so great diet and maybe to reduce damage from free radicals as a result of having a 6 apnea tables per week regiment that I started less than 2 weeks ago.
I take URL=http://www.centrum.com/products/product_silver.asp]this[/URL] becuase that's what I have laying around in the house - becuase my parents take them.
I heard somewhere that Centrum are a ripoff, but I don't know if it's true or why. Would be happy for any other recommendations.

I saw some other supplement product, can't remember the name (pro vitamins performance or something) that had about 2000%-4000% of the Daily Value advised by the FDA. Been told that this value was set in the 50's or so and has no real hold. Anyone has an opnion about that?
My friends noooo!!!! take vitamins but not excessive doses!!! I use to take Animal Pak and they are very good but I always had excessive apetite and beware you can get fat because you are constantly hungry.

I've tried it all, steroids, and all this stuff. Just take a vitamin daily like centrum. Keep it simple, don't waste your money on excessive supplements. If you need any other info let me know :0)
