Anavite

Been taking Anavite now for just over 1 week (with PCT). Dosed as per carton so 3 tabs morning (breakfast) and 3 with evening meal.

So far so good, BA tingle is strong , can get a little flushed/warm (normal) but supporting PCT well, feel good, recovery (with Nolva) is strong, feel good at the gym and gains holdign well.

Question is this... How can I rate a Multivit? What are the signs or is it just general wellbeing?

    I know what you mean. A multi-vit supplement is more of a 'just incase' kinda thing. I doubt you will notice anything.

    Unrelated but i heard one of the B vitamins used in Anavite were sourced extremely cheaply to make anavite. Anyways sorry i cant answer your question as ive never used a multi-vitamin but been considering one for past 7 days.

    Where?!


    Anyway - its a tough one, but with a company like Gaspari, you know you've got a few good years of supps behind them.  No one is perfect but like you've decided already (since you own it!) they are a good company to use for your supps and know what you are getting (and yes, THAT matter some of you may spit you dummies about is being looked into!).

    As supplements are regulated under food laws in the UK does that go for ALL the food you eat also? I mean you won't buy any more Baked Beans or Cornflakes until you see a certificate to prove what that say on the label is really in the tin?

    I think youre going off on a tangent there mate. Those are not 'supplements'. Furthermore, why on earth would i eat baked beans and cornflakes? Lol. Supplements also cost alot of money as opposed to 'household' foods.

    I know the legal definition of it mate but im talking from the eyes of us guys, hence, those who train regular and buy supplements.

    They have to contain within 10% tolerance or so what they claim.  I think they are considered dairy if whey and some other if not.

    No i'm not going off on a tangent... I am making a point that "Dietary Supplements" are classified and governed by FOOD laws as are all other FOODS in the UK... They are held to exactly the same standards of manufacture and labelling as other foods such as baked beans or cornflakes.. To that end why would you expect a company selling protein powder to provide a certificate proving the contents any more than you would expect a Baked Bean manufacturer is my point...
     
    As for cost, I do not agree that "all" supplements cost more than houshold foods.... I could give you a breakdown, but I am sure you would agree that 5kg of whey protein for 35.00 providing around 167 (30g) servings at 21p per serving is a low priced way to get good quality protein "supplemented" into your diet??

    I just wish more people tested products coming over from the U.S. Their laws means that most products in the U.S.A are not even tested for whether they satisfy what they claim to contain. Im not having a go at Gaspari products in particular as im stating that as a fact for most of the 95% of U.S. companies. If i just stated my opinions then that would be real dumb and defamatory. I am assured that Anavite will contain what it says (especially when they have a rep like you who probably tests them anyway lol). However, its what i had read from their own rep over in U.S forums honestly stating they had to use a cheaper version of a vitamin than what was available. Thats not a problem as many companies try and save cost and i have no problems with that side of things. The point is, when i spend my money, id rather not know such things in first place! Lol.

    gbros,
     
    Just because you read a forum post on the internet does not make it a FACT.... What US laws are you talking about? The truth is the US supplement industry is regulated more than the UK supplement industry. They have specific dietary supplement regulations under DHSEA (look it up), which do provide requirements from manufacturers of supplements.
     
    Also good manufacturers adhear to GMP manufacturing standards (both in the UK/Europe & US), they will not release raw ingredients until tested, they will test and hold for 3-5 years samples of all finished products...
     
    I am not saying that ALL supplement companies do this, but the good ones do... The supplement industry is no different from ANY other industry a few bad apples spoil it for everyone...

    Where have i stated it was a fact? I was saying it was enough to put doubts in my mind. As for US supplement industry being more regulated, is that why countless number of US companies are found to taint their products? i.e. ALRI, etc? So much for regulation

    In your original post above on line 3 you say "as im stating that as a fact for most of the 95% of U.S. companies."
     
    As I said in my post I am NOT claiming ALL US supplement companies adhear to the regulations/law, but as I said that can be said of any industry... Look at the meat industry (mad cow), the car industry (Toyota recall), just because companies choose not to work within the regulations does not mean the are no regulations...

    IMO gbros you are operating on heresay rather than fact.  I'd appreciate sourced details rather than he said/she said.  When I have said anything about any companies I have used facts from tests i've done.   Even the Gaspari ones.

    I think youre both reading the word "fact" in the wrong way. Read it again. The sentence "the fact that" is not same as "as a fact". It was just typed in a rushed manner. Sorry for confusion guys.

    I been looking for the same thread i read but cant find it for now. If i do come across it i'll be sure to send you a link. I did not say it was a fact but rather something that would put me off (personally) from buying it. Hence, why so many companies take libel action when people state lies.
