what are your daily supplements?
« on: October 01, 2020, 07:12:57 PM »
I've got a job one day a week in a health food shop and I love it.  I knew the owner from years back when I was in the Pharmacy retail end.  Anyway I had been taking Zinc 50mg once per day to keep my immune system up.  Since I started working there, I take Selenium and Zinc, Vit D spray,  a female  hormone balance complex capsule (I am 48) and now I am taking a Ginseng for fatigue.  I need to do a magnesium and calcium supplement so I'll give the zinc a miss as I've been on that for over 2 months now.  I'm curious what other people are taking and what could you not live without?

Its also my sanity, I meet probably 60/40 covidiots to truthers......love meeting people especially when they know whats going on.  Unfortunately a lot are new age hippie woo woo stuff but very nice all the same.

In the morning now I'm taking vitamin E, D, K2+D, and aspirin/caffeine. I take another aspir8n/caffeine with lunch. In the evening before bed I take magnesium. I also take an ox bile based digestive supplement with meals when I remember to. If you are lacking magnesium in your diet, instant coffee is pretty high, and epsom salts in a bath should provide some transdermally. If you are missing zinc, oysters are packed with it.

All capsule forms:

Tumeric
Salmon Oil
Pumpkin Seed extract
Creatine
Magnesium
Ceylon Cinammon/Vitamin D combo

Of the above, tumeric would be most missed.

Why K2? and why ox bile?

Why K2? and why ox bile?

K2 protects against possible negative effects of aspirin on the stomach lining. It's generally found in leafy vegetables which I am not too fond of, and when I tracked my diet for a couple weeks on chronometer I was consistently low (also with magnesium, like you). Ox bile is an effective enzyme for good digestion of protein.

Milky Tea, Lemon Tea, water with lemon.  Vitamin D in the winter.  I've got one of those SAD lights too that I blast in my face when I am feeling a bit down (usually in the dark winter nights). In the UK (England) we only get 8 hours of daylight during the winter solstice (Dec 21).  Summer solstice (Jun 21) is DOUBLE that.

I don't take any daily supplements.

I take a multivitamin, ginseng sometimes, creatine sometimes.  The last two tend to make me tired now for some reason.

I take melatonin, but not for sleep issues.  Some research supports an off-label use for anti-aging properties.  As people age their endogenous melatonin production decreases and this seems to be the mechanism for many of the common effects of aging.  Exogenous melatonin may slow these effects.  While there is some research in support of melatonin supplementation for this, it has not been tested/ approved for this use so there is an element of risk involved.

Ginseng is new for me and its for fatigue so I'm hoping it does work.

I get all of my nutrition only from food, but that includes quite a variety of solids and liquids.  I was raised on the importance of variety for nutrition.

I eat (and drink) far more organic food now than I used to, but that is partly because of its superior taste.

The only time I took any "supplements" was during pregnancy because most modern obstetricians strongly recommend Vitamin B for pregnant women.
