Ryan is a 21-year-old college student who is very interested in bodybuilding. His ambition is to compete in bodybuilding on the local and then state levels, and perhaps one day enter competition on the national level. He is 6'1" tall and weighs 212 lbs. Because of his lean body mass, he does not look overweight. He works out every day for two to three hours, working different body parts each time. His goal is to gain 25 pounds. To do so, he is taking dietary supplements including protein, vitamin E, and creatine. The gym he attends has high quality equipment and support services.

The tablet contains 200 percent of his requirement for vitamins A and D. The vitamin A is in the acetate form. In some of his magazines, he has read that vitamin E prevents oxidative stress caused by physical activity, so he takes a Vitamin E supplement each day. He has also read that Vitamin C is necessary for protein synthesis, so he takes 2 g of Vitamin C a day....
