Aside from this "Feel free to waste your money on vitamins. Most likely any positive effects you are feeling is just a placebo." and this "yeah, everything is tainted and dangerous these days... that's why the average lifespan has been increasing moderately over the course of time.", great thread.
The taint? Fluoride in all tap water, gmo's, mercury in the fish, radioactive isotopes in the fish, non organic (most common) fertilizer that's absorbed by crops most of the population eats, the air....... Blah blah blah I could go on but seriously, where do u live Hinmo? These contaminants don't exist in your area? Do you have an untainted spring or a $200 water filter?
The placebo? I used to take Centrum Performance. I would feel sharper and get sick less. Any times I stopped taking them I could easily notice the difference in how I felt. The same goes for my joint supplement vita packs from GNC. The joint supps make me way more functional at work and in the water. Again if I stop taking them, soon after a much higher level of arthritic crustiness sets in fo sho. When I start back up with the joint supps I don't feel the benefits for a week or so. It's real, I know my body well.
My orthopedic doc told me to take glucosamine, condroitin, and msm to help my knee and other joints. I went to gnc for triflex and wound up getting the mega man vita pack because it had fish oil and a multi vitamin on top of the joint supps. Even though I wear gold chains over my wetsuit, I'm not a meat head guido for going to gnc. I'm just trying to feel better. My knee is a serious issue and it always hurts, it's a matter of how much I can control the pain. Dislocated shoulder, 2x broken elbow, both ankles broken, 2x broken wrist, 2 knee surgeries (didn't walk for 6 months, had to re-learn, 1yr pt, can never run again), and the list goes on. I use ice and electric stimulation often. My knee is repaired but still a shadow of what it was. My orthopedic told me that I would need to give my knee and other injuries constant attention and physical therapy to maintain some level of comfort and functionality. That was 10 years ago and he's definitely right. I eat a well balanced diet and get plenty of exercise for sure. I grow an organic garden and fish all year. I love fish and am so saddened by pollution and commercial fishing. I didn't properly consider where the fish oil was coming from and will adjust my ways in regard to that.
Some of you guys my be too young to relate to how it feels to be well into your thirties and this banged up. I was crazy and wish I was more careful, idk I had a sh*t ton of fun too.
So the input on this thread was awesome and I learned some stuff. Thanks for that.
I'm left wondering how I can help my joints as effectively without the joint supps?

I do the "joint juice." I've tried the glucosamine, condroitin pills but they had no effect after using them faithfully for a month. Knowing that the ingredients are mostly ground up shell fish, I figured the pills were probably "just passin' through." As far as multi- vitamins I've switched to gummies for the same reason. Those rock hard multis probably go through your system like corn...
Work outs? Just be active. Find something that is athletic, fun and gets your heart rate up. Ultimate frisbee, biking, running, sex. All the aforementioned at the same time. I have that book on exercises for surfing. Keep it interesting and change it up or you will get bored and quit.

Agree about vitamins. I do take some B12 since I don't eat many foods that contain it (primarily meat), and it's an important one. Other than that, read the China Study or watch Forks Over Knives. Very interesting stuff.

my joint supply is always in jeopardy
and can we get back to the real nutrition: hair pie.
the hair SHOULD NOT be the main ingredient, but a sprinkling for texture

Skating, smoking, drinking, car wrecks, other accidents, and an undeniably adult age have all contributed to me generally feeling like sh*t. Diet primarily, but also exercise, make a huge difference in everything from my energy levels to hangovers....
I don't take supplements... just lots of fresh fruits and veggies, and leafy greens (usually Kale or Spinach), usually in blended slurry form. Aside from a weekly binge on wings, I eat healthy regularly.
There's nothing wrong with abstaining from macho foods like red-meat. I'm comfortable with my food preference, and everyone would benefit from some fruit-slurry (though it might take you a while to get used to the taste).
Also, if you smoke, make sure to buy organic cigarettes.
