Animal Pak is a waste. The amounts are way too high for your body to properly metabolize.

EDIT: It's not dangerous...you'll be fine.

its a confusing Scenario because im sure there are others that would say your totally WRONG about the ANIMAL pak Vitamins Ive heard from friends and i can see a change in their overall performance in a short period of Time not taking steroids or anything else just supplementing eating right and hittin it hard in the gym , But thanks Ill keep doing that till i can come up with a conclusion of my own

i had trouble swallowing them down when i first brouht a tin, but they are easy once you get used to it daily down them all in 3 - 4 sips of water.

here is a tip what you can do, if your having touble getting them down.

split them up into groups of sizes :keke:

I felt great when taking them, didnt get sick or anything for months on end, but it costs to much for the amount you get in it,

im switching ti a different multi very soon

It shouldn't hurt you to crush them up, but it might defeat the purpose of their time release.

Although I do think Animal Pak is a good vitamin, I consider it over priced.

I have taken Animal Pak before and, yes, I noticed a great increase in energy for about 1-2 hours after taking it. However, remember placebo and that research will prove any type of advertising wrong.

You can try a pill cutter.. It's a simple thing you can get at the drug store and fairly inexpensive.. In my opinion the Animal Paks are pretty good.. Remeber the high amounts of vitamins in there are to make sure you get enough into your system. Some of the other ones don't dissolve that well in your system and there amounts are just too low. So in turn your body will not absorb enough to make a difference. The animal paks are of pretty good grade, so they will dissolve well in the body. Just my 2 cents.

There a solid vitamin pack although I heard they found traces of oral steroids in some pkg's of Animal Pak. Probably a rumour though...

Could be true, I could see how they would be effective though. There are a few articles floating around about oral active steroids in supps, anywhere from BCAA's to creatine and all types really.

You get used to taking them, I can usually take half of the pack at a time. But I do agree, they are overpriced a little. Right now I just have a generic multi-vitamin I am taking, but there was a pretty good article in the article section about multi-vitamins I remember reading.

They are great for athletes. Athletes including myself usually just take a multi-vitamin once daily because of the high prices of Animal Paks, but i do see how the larger amounts are helpful. Just way to high of a price though.

Animal Pak

I also tried them and yes they are huge!, I tried crushing them and mixing them into a shake but it just sat at the bottom. So I just said F it and started downing them, I did gag a few times but I got use to them. I switched back to GNC multi's tho, good luck
