So far I haven’t had Dr. Wily visit me or been forced to fight large robotic cats throwing dancing toads. Give me a little bit.
OK, so I’ve decided to go on a health kick. Losing 25 pounds in 16 weeks is my goal. I went to GNC this afternoon and, after looking around a bit, picked out these Mega Man pills that give you about a gazillion times the recommended daily value.
Honestly, I’m looking on the side here and wondering what I’d need with 4 times the necessary Vitamin C and 19 times the needed Thiamin per day, every day. I asked the clerk, and he said that your body doesn’t always absorb all the vitamins and minerals in the pill, so having extra is a good thing. Plus, extra of most vitamins aren’t harmful and the bad ones if taken to extreme(A and K) aren’t provided in excess.
So my questions are: did I just throw away my money? Is this a scam or will this actually help me? Also, is it possible, despite what the clerk said, that 19 times what you need isn’t really a good thing after all?
