    Question What Supplements, Herbs or Vitamins Do You Take On A Daily Basis?

    I take too many supplements to list, but some I only take several times a week, not daily. What are some of the supplements, herbs or vitamins you take on a daily basis?

    Daily for me is:

    Lutein (antioxidant, eyes, skin, memory, diabetes, heart, etc.)
    Carnosine (antioxidant, eyes, heart, diabetes, memory, muscles, etc.)
    Vitamin k2 (bones, arteries, etc.)
    Vitamin D3 (eyes, immune system, etc.)
    Bitter Melon (diabetes, blood sugar, etc.)
    Chromium Picolinate (diabetes, blood sugar, etc.)


    Milk Thistle (liver, etc.)
    Turmeric (antioxidant, inflammation/pain, brain, heart, memory, arthritis, etc.)
    Magnesium Citrate (muscles, relaxation, etc.)
    Potassium Citrate (blood pressure, kidneys, stroke, osteoporosis, etc.)
    Ubiquinol/CoQ10 (antioxidant, eyes, blood pressure, diabetes, gums, immune system, etc.)
    Omega3 fish oil (memory, arthritis, heart, diabetes, immune system, skin, hair, etc.)
    Chlorella (detoxification, immune system, blood sugar, cholesterol, etc.)

    A couple or several times a week:

    Natural Vitamin E (D-Alpha)
    Vitamin B-50 Complex
    MSM with Glucosamine Sulfate
    Multi Vitamin/Mineral
    Probiotic


    For special issues:

    Wild Cherry Bark tincture
    Pleurisy Root tincture
    Grapefruit Seed Extract
    Activated Charcoal
    Cascara Sagrada
    L-Lysine


    Note: Before taking any vitamins or supplements, you should research all side effects and drug interactions. If you have a health condition, or take prescription meds, you should get your doctor's approval first.

    Seriouusly tho' SB...its a co-incidence because I was just asking my friends earlier tonight what they take, and what they think I should be taking...I have absolutely no idea.

    I don't know what most of your list is for... but I'd love to know what I should be taking that will potentially enhance my health.

    I have tried taking Vit B complex but it upsets my stomach..other than that I only take Biotin for my nails and hair, and a one a day Vit C & Zinc capsule..

    I take turmeric occasionally , as well as Boron capsules...for my RA... but that's it..

    I really wouldn't know where to start...

    Holly, I added just some of the benefits of the daily ones next to the supplement, but it doesn't include all benefits. Hope this give you a better idea of what they're good for.

    I take a daily "Mens over 50" multivitamin, after breakfast. I also take a Preservision pill and a fish oil capsule...because my eye doctor says that is the best way to stave off Macular Degeneration....which my old Dad had. After Supper, I take a Glucosamine with MSM pill, which seems to help my minor hip arthritis/sciatica. So far, this routine seems to work, as my eye exams have been good for several years, and the hip/leg pain remains minor. I am all for anything I can do to avoid surgery, or prescription drugs.
    Things get better with age....I'm approaching Magnificent.

    I don't buy tablets anymore because I've always had trouble swallowing pills, the capsules are much easier to swallow and they dissolve better in your system. Lately I've been opening my capsules and putting them in a jar along with some powdered supplements I take. I mix it with a small amount of orange juice and just drink it like that.

    That's quite a list.

    Do you take them all at the same time ?...or space them out through the day ?

    Do you have any diagnosed / defined conditions ? Are your 'vitals' at acceptable levels ?

    Yes rgp, I take them all at once in orange juice, except for the CoQ10 and Lutein, which are softgels, I put a dropper of Milk Thistle in water and swallow those usually separately. I rarely see the doctor, just every few years when I want to check my blood and blood glucose numbers, all results have been acceptable. I have no defined conditions as of yet, and am not on any prescription drugs.
