    Default B vitamins

    I want to take B vitamins to increase my energy levels. Can anyone recommend a formula or particular brand? I've done research on vitamins (years ago) so I know that some forms are actually better than others, but I'm out of touch with the market these days.

    I will just tell you one thing that if you want to know some product about energy level you need to done a market research because daily things changes in market.

    Hi Sport,

    you may be totally dialed in on everything else, so this is just for general knowledge, ok?

    SO for the sake of argument, let's suppose that someone says exactly what you asked about some b vitamins to up their energy level.

    SOmething you might ask is
    1) what has lead you to believe that you are b deficient?
    2) what has lead you to believe that your energy issues are related to b vitamin deficiency as opposed to anything else - like not eating enough, generally, perhaps being stressed, not getting enough sleep, etc etc.

    Rarely, it seems, is "low energy" tied to something as "single factor" as *just* a single vitamin issue.

    So again, you may personally be completely dialed in, but wouldn't want anyone else to think "hmm, i'm kinda low on energy - i only get fitful sleep, eat on the go, hate veggies,am stressed at home, etc, but if i just get some b, i'll be fine.

    best

    Also, I am under the impression the the B vitamin complex is contained within everything (except B12 which is lacking in plant sources). Therefore, as long as you are eating a variety of unprocessed foods, you should have your B vitamins already.

    I see B6 and sometimes other B vitamins in several products - here's one, and you can read what this manufacturer has to say on the subject.

    What's in the 5-Hour Energy drink?

    Disclaimer: I don't take this energy drink nor do I take any supplemental B vitamins except whatever might be in the multi-vitamin I take daily. NB: I take a two-a-day multi-vitamin, but I only take it once a day, in the mornings.

    B6 doses can be quite high, often 1000 times the US-RDA. It is a diuretic in such quantities, I believe.

    The organic free ranging beef liver from Argintina in dissicated tablet form provide some powerful nutrition with a pretty amazing span of nutrients, including Bvitamins and some interesting animal studies on increased times till exhaustion. Some are of the opinion that even the best cleanest liver is poor and potentially contaminated protein with a few b vits but you might investigate for yourself...this was an old school staple and I always go for the closest to whole food rather than synthetic ratios. It is clear that throughout our history the liver was the prized food of our ancestors

    you're the second person who has mentioned desiccated organ pills. I read that Cate Imes, MS in kettlebell lifting, uses them. With those types of endorsements, it certainly is food for thought if not food for recovery.

    universal uni-liver is available and very reasonably priced and from the best sources...BUT you must throw them in the blender...or go for a powder.

    The only issue for me might be that if you are heavily supplimenting with liver for long periods of time is to be aware of your iron status...though rarely a problem for hard training athletes some people with heavy meat intake and not a lot of activity can get iron overload...a simple blood test (ferritin) can see if this is becoming elevated over time....but again most athletes do not have a problem with this
