    Flaxseed oil, coconut oil, multivitamin, vitamin c, joint health supplement w/ calcium and shark cartilage, chromium picolinate, whey protein and casein.

    I'm happy with the results so far, but it's hard to tell what is working.

    I use and would recommend an antioxidant blend for anti-aging

    Did you happen to take a multivitamin with iron? Usually men's multivitamins remove it. Multivitamin is one of the best things you can take. I would recommend one with a joint cushioning blend to minimize damage from workouts
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    multivitamin, calcium and fish oil.
    I've been on a veggie kick lately, too, with lots of spinach. I feel I'm much less dehydrated.

    Been taking these everyday since posting this, I blame the Coenzyme Q10 for my 'sleepless nights'.


    I take those plus, as of yesterday;

    Rosehip


    Hair, skin, nail thing.


    Benefiber

    AST sports science multi pro 32X is highly recommended by many people and it's what I use as well, most any 1-a-day is fine though. I take this along with a fish pill, twice a day and call it good.

    ON's pro-complex is the best protein mix I've found. Instead of just whey protein it has a variety of sources like egg albumen which gives you a more well-rounded profile for muscle repair and growth.

    I take:

    Turmeric caps: 4x800mg
    N-acetyl glucosamine: 5x750mg
    N-acetyl cysteine: 2x600mg
    Acetyl L-carnitine+alpha lipoic acid: 2x1600mg
    Iodine (liquid kelp): 800mcg
    Sometimes: B-complex

    I don't take a multi because I don't think they work, but I do make green smoothies pretty often.

    fish-oil based omega 3, expired by a year now, and once/daily instead of the 3x/daily they wanted me to take.

    probably not doing anything, but eh, I have them, why not. I probably won't buy more, at least without researching a bit more to see if they have proven results. When I bought them a few years ago they seemed a little more promising. I'm pretty skeptical about supplements in general - will occasionally take a multivitamin if I'm getting sick or eating worse than usual or something.

    Pretty much ALL supplement claims are based on massive overinterpretation of scientific findings, or worse, not based on any evidence at all. Even the ones that seem most promising (omega 3, vitamin D) show inconsistent results in population studies.

    That's for healthy people, of course, not people who have specific deficiencies or needs.
