    Supplements

    Guys

    Do you take supplements? What are you taking and why?

    I'm over 50 and take the following daily:

    Fish oil for supple joints.
    Calcium/Vit D for healthy bones.
    Vit B6 for healthy skin.
    Raw garlic for mosquito deterrent.

    Varying reasons.

    Joint-health, same as you, boost micro-nutrients, and protein powder as an easy way to get protein dose.

    No, other than electrolyte drinks if I've been sweating a lot.

    A normal balanced diet should be enough. If it ain't broke don't try and fix it.

    But not everyone needs to take supplements. “It's possible to get all of the nutrients you need by eating a variety of healthy foods, so you don't have to take one,” says Carol Haggans, a registered dietitian and consultant to NIH. “But supplements can be useful for filling in gaps in your diet.”

    No it isn't, seeing a maintenance message.

    Which is partly why I'm kinda nervous about what it is I have actually accepted.

    Far cough, I 'missed' Tuesdays appointment for no fault of my own(ish).

    I have been reconvened for an hour of torture at noon tomorrow.

    Once again, a few beers, mooses, 2 bottles of wine and 1/2 a Xanny and so I'm not bothered.

    Note: I am not a Poofterphobe.

    You know you're a blerry poofter. There's nothing wrong being a blerry poofter. In fact, you've hit the blerry jackpot.

    So embrace it already ffs

    I eat a tablespoon of pulped seaweed ( laver bread ) every morning before I have my biscuit for breakfast. It tops up my iodine levels. For my afternoon tea I have a Spiller's Bonio biscuit which I dunk in lemon tea. They are dog biscuits and my teeth would not be able to chew them otherwise. This, along with an apple or orange, gives me all essential vitamins I need.

    Many West Walians eat fried laver bread with bacon and egg for their breakfast, I don't as I just have a biscuit and a cup of coffee.

    Bonio biscuits were originally manufactured by Spillers but that firm was taken over by Purina. This is an extract from their website about the present day composition of said biscuits.

    Please bear in mind that vitamins and minerals are only needed in small quantities. No extra benefit is to be gained by eating more than one Bonio per day. A box lasts me six weeks.


    Composition:
    Cereals (30% whole wheat), Derivatives of vegetable origin, Oils and fats, Minerals, Meat and animal derivatives.

    Additives:
    Nutritional additives:
    IU/kg: Vit A: 9500; Vit D3: 700; Vit E: 75
    mg/kg: Fe(E1): 58; I(E2): 8.5; Cu(E4): 7.1; Zn(E6): 85
    With antioxidants

    Analytical constituents:

    Protein: 11.0%
    Fat content: 5.0%
    Crude ash: 4.0%
    Crude fibres: 1.2%

    Garlic to protect against witches
    Dandelion or cat's ear roots dried and ground into a powder and drunk to protect against evil spirits.
    Cloves and cinquefoil to protect against ghosts.
    Copious amounts of alcohol to protect against me.

    Surprised lots of body builders among you lot... very healthy sport.

    I used to be into body building in my teens, but trimmed down for Muay Thai.

    I prefer body weight exercises now for functional strength (pull ups, dips,, push ups, etc) (with some compound weight training (dead-lifts, squats) thrown in for good measure)...

    I am out now.. but I usually take pycnogenol, it's supposed to be 1,000 times more potent than vitamin c (as an antioxidant)...
