Bad idea to take supplements / vitamins etc. into Thailand?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if any of you have had any problems taking vitamins or supplements into Thailand, specifically Yohimbe. I'd also be taking zinc, protein powder, and a multivitamin with me. What are the chances I would be stopped at immigration? If anyone has any knowledge or insight they could provide, I'd greatly appreciate it.

 

The thing is, I don't even know if I need this stuff. I just want to make sure that, this time around, I'm able to fully enjoy my trip. I'm 26 years old, healthy, and usually my sex drive is very high. But the last time (also my first time) to Thailand, I didn't have nearly as much fun as I would have liked. First of all, I traveled with my girlfriend. Spent 7 days with her before she went back home (another country), and I stayed to finish off my vacation time. The first 3 days we spent in Bangkok, and we barely slept at all! We ran all around the city, doing this and that, touring and what not. We were absolutely exhausted. Then we went down to an island. I should have gotten decent rest down there, but instead I often stayed up late (bad habit), and got up very early to see the sunrise. I'd go back to bed for a while afterwards of course, but I doubt that did much for my body. On top of the fatigue, I was in a pretty shitty mood. The trip didn't go as smoothly as I would have liked. The two of us argued often. We had sex ONCE! She's always complaining about stress and what not back home, now we're on vacation and I still have to practically beg! Just not whatI had pictured in my mind beforehand.

 

Anyway, I made it to Pattaya the next night and realized something very strange: I was finally there, after all the anticipation, and my sex drive hadn't made the trip with me! What a nightmare! Being young, I was managing hard-ons, and sex twice a day, but I wasn't enjoying most of it, at least not nearly as much as I usually do. Couldn't believe what was happening with me, or actually what wasn't happening, but in retrospect, it makes sense given the state my body and mind were in at the time.

 

Now, I'm well rested and getting ready to take my trip in two days. My body feels fine, and the sexual energy is definitely there. But I don't want to take any chances, thus the zinc, protein powder, and yohimbe for reassurance. I'd like to have this stuff with me, just in case, but if it's going to cause me a hassle at the airport or get me executed in a dirty prison somewhere around Bangkok, well...I'd rather go au naturale

I arrived 3 weeks ago with 5 kg of proteins, aminoacids and carbs. Plus vitamins, fish oil, ect.

 

I guess they can take some of it, if they suspect you of selling it. But normal products, I wouldn't worry about.

 

I've done this plenty of times, cause Protein powder is expensive here, and in my experince suck big time.

I've never had any issues taking my multivits into Thailand, but then again ive not been stopped at the airport to date. Garlic is awesome for the sex drive IMO but is a little potent on the smell front.

 

Mind you, whisky doesn't do wonders for my sex drive.

I think Yohimbe is allowed to take in Thailand which you can check on any online website that sells it - they have written to which countries they are not allowed to ship it and Thailand is not one of them.

I'd no problems going through customs with rubex vit c, b vits, fish oils, viagra and zinc and had no issues. The one thing I'd wish I'd brought were sleeping tabs as I had problems waking up at 7 or 8 every morning when the sun came up. Tough when you went to sleep at 5am.

I take lots of vitamins, and have brought them in on trips as it's too expensive here. They fined me once when I had 20 bottles--a thousand baht after negotiation.

I bring heaps of vitamins into thailand everytime. Never a drama mate.

Courage, determination, unselfishness and cheefulness in the face of adversity. Bond us all together, a brotherhood so inexplicable you will never understand, unless you are one of us....

I always bring multivits and B vitamins for my eczema....

Last year got off the plane half dead from the flight as usual, had the plastic containers in a bag over my shoulder.

All the way to immigration I noticed armed police officers turning and staring at me as I passed still half asleep.

Wasn't till I got into the expanse of the immigration hall it dawned on me that every time I took a step the vits were rattling up and down in the containers.

Shit I thought...they think I'm a drug courier!....But Immigration never batted an eye lid as they say.

I chuckle to my self just reading this back,but shit was I paranoid then till I got on the bus! heh...heh...

I take vitamins and supplements on every trip and I have never had a problem...

 

As far as "sexual supplements" go, you can find Kamagra fairly easily once in Pattaya. :D:P

...and if needed: a kamegra

I took in 40 lbs of supplements, from protein, to zinc, to greens, to multi vitamins, saw palmetto, omega, everything OTC for working out.

 

Cost me 1000 baht at the door.

 

If you're in Pattaya and want to buy some for cheap, let me know.

Sounds like you were jet legged. I also have Insomnia and often take sleeping pills. Melatonin works great for jet leg and is legal in Thailand.

I wish I took a pack of mass gainer with me as the prices here are damn high and I can't find my Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass here.

We will be selling pharmaceutical grade products in Thailand soon via www.usana-thailand.com if anyone is interested (Only company in the world that is FDA approved for nutritionals). Whilst I've never had a problem taking taking protein powders or supplements in (even with luggage inspection) if you bring too much it might be a problem.

Last trip I took vitamins, ZMA, co-enzyme q, omega 3's, testo-rex (anti estrogen supplement) and a semen 'volumizer' thing called Performer 5 (fantastic product by the way). I carried them all in my backpack and no one at customs said a thing about it from the x-ray machine. The only thing they took from me was my toothpaste which was larger than 3 oz.

I live in Thailand, and when I go home once a year I bring back my supplies for me and my family but never in the amounts noted by one posted (20) I also stock up on odds and ends. Several years ago my bags were scanned and the guy rush over and told me to open my bag I had only 8 bottles, muti-vitamins, fish oil, calcium, etc.. the guy was saying I had too many? I spoke back what you mean too many? I told him I have a large family and based on the recommended levels it is not consider much I ended up just standing there so I pack up my stuff and left. To be honest, they can't read and have no idea what they are that is just my opinion. Now I spread the bottles around meaning if I'm allow two bags I put some here some there. I've since had my bags scanned but they normally ask for one only and since then I've had no problems. I usually wait until the area gets crowded and wait until someone with more bags than I go through and usually I just walk by.

I'm on an 8 month trip alternating from P.I. to Thailand. I brought in 8 month supply of protein and 6 different vitamins plus 3 meds......never a problem. Probably filled up half of one suitcase.

 

Geez...leave the gf home and have some fun! 26 years old? Yeah, you should be bangin at least 2-3 a day with ease. At 59, I do about 1-2 a day with maybe a break in the action now and then.

 

Good luck young man, this place is as good as you make it!
