    What supplements do you take daily or on a regular basis and why?

    Do you use supplements with success? If so what do you take and how does it work for you?  I personally take Astragalus (now through spring to boost immunity for cold/flu season) I take a whole foods multi-vitamin and mineral supplement daily,   I also take a Lecithin supplement to help with weight loss/maintenance and green tea.  Others I use on an as needed basis like 5HTP for winter blues or stress and GSE for any illness/infections.  I also do oil pulling daily now with coconut oil.  All of these are successful for me.  What do you use? share your thoughts smile

    I take a multivitamin everyday, along with my standard "work-out supplements" (Creatine, No2, Protein, etc). As I've gotten older (and as my wife has read more articles on the subject), I'm also taking fish oil and some Pro-biotic that she found.

    As Needed, I'll take Vitamin C (for when I'm getting sick) and B-Vitamin cocktail (for energy).

    I take a magnesium/calcium supplement every night. Good for the bones and helps with sleep. Think I might add some Astragalus now that it's cold and flu season.

    A good multi vitamin, a fish oil supplement, vitamin d3, and calcium/ magnesium/ and zinc. Vitamin D3 and zinc, also boost immunity for cold/ and flu season. Just a heads up.

    I always take evening primose oil and starflower oil every day, they are fantastic. If I'm getting ill or I know I'm going to have a medical procedure done I take vitamin C tablets 2 weeks before it's due. Might start taking a few new things for the flu season, I keep meaning to take omega 3 supplements for the brain (but ironically I keep forgetting!)

    I have been taking a cocktail of supplements for the past couple of years and it has been very successful for me. I take 500mg Vitamin C, 1000mg Fish Oil, Super B-Complex, and 400IU Vitamin D. The Vitamin C has really helped to boost my immune system. I used to get sick several times per year, and now that I've been taking it daily, I don't remember the last time I had a cold. The Fish Oil is for a number of things - depression, period pain, and heart health. I have found it also to work quite well. The Vitamin D is for bone health, and the B Complex is to help fight fatigue.

    Overall, I feel healthier and better since I began my vitamin regimen, so I would certainly recommend them.

    I am used to drink in the morning a combination of Vitamin C - E and Selene together with the best from fruits, vegetables and cereals, fibers, live lactic bacteria and enzymes as well as valuable herbal extracts from Indian Ayurvedic teachings together with a boost of Vitamin B and Q10. In the evening I drink a complex of minerals.

    As I am a lazy bone smile I love these tasty drinks instead of swallowing a handful of pills to feel young, full of energy, able to work (in rare cases of necessity) 24/24 with a clear head.

    Ok I could complete it with Omega 3 but until today I left it as I don't feel the need!?

    All I can say is that I feel great, sleep like an angel and have the power to act the whole day long without feeling tired.

    I am over 50 now and a school friend of mine tells me that he feels old and doesn't have any longer the energy as some years ago... I cannot confirm this.
