many multivitamins contain more of the water-soluble vitamins than your body could possibly use. your urine is bright yellow b/c your kidneys are excreting the excess. it's not anything to worry about. just means they're doing their job. ;) a massive excess of fat-soluble vitamins is more of a problem (vitamins A, D, E, K), so you'll usually find that vitamins don't contain megadoses of those.

B12 makes mine yeller too
I dont take too many vitamins, just some extra C & E, along with a multivitamin on a day I work out. Your body just flushes most of it away.

waste of $$$

I'm not either, and i normally don't take them on a regular basis, but my diet has been lacking in quantity and quality. Last week, i 've been only eating 2x a day, and being on a vegetarian diet, wasn't helping me get enough nutrients in and i started looking like crap. So i started popping vitamins the past 2 days and drinking tons of water. I do look better today, less like a zombie.

I prefer to get my nutrients in the natural way. I did go food shopping finally so I have plenty of good, nutritious food to eat. I just have to get up earlier and have time to eat at least 3 meals a day.

for people who eat healthy they are not necessary. for people who dont eat healthy or on a fairly restrictive diet, they can be very useful.

to me its more of an insurance thing than anything else.

i take a daily multivitamin for the random vitamins i struggle to get from food. I have a hard time getting enough potassium in a day, so the vitamins help.

I take a set of daily multi's - 101 and Apoc have probably heard of this: Animal pack, along with a daily dose of milk thistle.

Turns my pee FLOURESCENT neon yellow.

I'm half tempted to leave it in a public toilet every now and then just to give someone a wtf moment.

That's my one gripe with the animal pak is that it's expensive - About 50 bucks per bottle.

I use these only on lifting days..the I take a Centrum plus 2 calcium on non-lifting days. It gives the body a chance to flush out the excess vitamins.

Whoever says you don't need vitamin supplements and can get everything from foods is simply full of shit. Todays foods are so processed that alot of the nutrients have been removed. Plus foods vary so much in vitamin/mineral content that you cannot equate 1 apple to having X amount of vitamins.

Also, for those that have urine turning nice bright colors, you needc to drink enough water to have 1 piss clear per day. FYI...

i wash down the vitamin with a glass of water and the first and 2nd pee is neon, the rest is clear. i'm aiming for 8 glasses.

Can too much water ever be too much?

not all multi's do that to me, just this brand i've been taking.
