My grandmother is 86, still smoking and drinking Black Velvet regularly. Meanwhile I remember my wrestling coach in high school dying of a heart attack while jogging at the age of 38. He was the healthiest person I knew...
There ya go... Your wrestling coach probably had heart issues in his family... Don't get me wrong I'm not saying vitamins are bad for you... But what did they take years ago??? Makes you wonder... Coffee, some studies say its no good for you, some say its advantageous to drink several cups a day... Me... I drink over 10 cups a day... I'm 68 and still can throw a 50lb bag of corn over my shoulder and go a mile or so... When going in the woods to push it to the limits I tell my wife I'm going for an EKG... I'M SUPRISED NO ONE MENTIONED "" GARLIC "".... They say its a cure all for anything... I knew a guy that was in Korea and he said they'd find cloves of garlic in a lot of the bunkers they overtook....

One thing that most people do not consider is that the food our parents and grandparents ate was more nutritional no matter what it was. Vegetables grown today do not have the same nutritional value. The reason is mineral depletion from over farming. Not to mention the guberment banned the use of manure as fertilizer in any crops for human consumption. The manure added a lot to the soil. Even organic grown crops are less nutritional than 40 years ago.

Man, all these different supplement names are making my head spin. Kudos to you guys finding benefits from them. If I ever need them one day I'll give them a try I guess. But for now I'm thankful to not have go down that rabbit hole.

Im eating right, drinking lots of coffee still, no alcohol. Returned to a very physical job I'm making work an 8 hr workout getting people mad but it's my health on the line. Weight is jumping off of me from the lack of sugar and portion control. One month weigh is Monday morning. I have a little challenge going with my wife. I haven't felt this good in years. No supplements. Chantelles would be great right now.

While putting together my week ahead of my daily vitamin routine, I thought of this thread and took a pic of why I say I have expensive urine to say the least! I've added Nexum, due to some acid reflux issue and other than that I'm still doing pretty much same things.

One more thing to add. I have read some articles that say make sure what ever you are taking is either liquid, gummy or in vegetable capsules. They claim that many tablets or hard pills that are coated with the pharmaceutical coatings pass through the stomach before digestion and pass right out.

I am no expert and do not know the validity of these articles just made me think a little. I take a gummy multivitamin now just in case.
