Hi there,
I started taking shakes and supplements 3 mth ago and feel just great since.
I take their core plan which consist of the following; plus some additional Liftoff and Rebuild strength when working out as I am trying to build mussel.
Two shakes a day with two scoops of protein total 28g protein,
1 Water soluble multivitamin 3 times/day,
1 Cell activator 3 times/day,
2 Fibre & Herb 3 times/day,
Plus one or two protein bars and a healthy dinner in the evening.
My friend and his wife are trained medics and work on an ambulance.
They started after us and when they went through the whole vitamin count he said that some were 3 to 5 times the rda.
He says he wont take the cell activator and multi vat together.
The plans are designed by doctors and nutritionists.
Is my friend just being a bit to cautious?

Appreciate your help...
Dermott

hello there
excess of every thing is bad. you felt good at start because excess dosage compensated the deficiencies. but this situation will change with time and you will get excess and alot of it beyond recommended daily allowances will cause the adverse effects you dont wanna get, do as recommended and avoid self medication. your friend is right. you are getting too un cautious.
take care
