Optimum Nutrition Multivitamin question

Serving size is 3 pills and it says to take them together but I was wondering if you guys thought it would be more beneficial to spread them out throughout the day. The reason I ask, just like animal pak, it seems like i piss out all the excess vitamins and though spreading them out may help me absorb more. Or I could be completely wrong lol.

Does the serving size say 3, or does the directions say take 3 at once?

Serving size is 3. I'm almost positive you're only supposed to take 1 serving a day.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

I've been taking this since spring 09'. I'm 100% certain when I first made the purchase the directions said 3x a day. I've noticed my last purchase had thinner tablets so they might have changed directions.

Mine says that too.

Serving size is 3 pills and it says take 3 pills daily with food. So I don't know if I should take them all at once or spread out. I may try to spread them out instead of taking all at once.

I feel as though the multi in the morning just helps your body get into the day more... as opposed to taking 1/3 servings 3 times a day.

Yeah I don't know. I feel like I piss out everything. I'm going to have to see what's better.

Most definitely spread them out throughout the day, and absolutely with a meal or at least a handful of almonds. Some vitamins such as Vit A & D are fat soluble which require the presence of fat to be absorbed.

Your body can store some vitamins and minerals but as you have noticed you will excrete what your body does not use (ex. Vit C), in addition to the depletion and usage of others- hence why you should take them 2-3X a day. I take OptiMen as well, and with 2/day [1 w/ breakfast, 1 w/ dinner] I feel that is sufficient and cheaper.

How can you determine what you're pissing out?

No way except urine analysis. What you can tell is that if you're piss is Gatorade Lemon-lime status, you're excreting excess Vit B2 (riboflavin).
