    Ah, you're one of the guys

    here.

    Inositol for the liver, DMAE for general health and the brain, L-Arginine for the heart and circulatory,

    Tribex for testosterone, Multi-vitamin for general health, protein drink with fruit and oatmeal for cholesterol and

    'cause becuase it tastes good.

    Ambrotose by a company called

    Mannatech. This company has atrocious bs pyrmaiding practices, btw. However, a friend of mine hasn't been sick in

    about 6 years taking this stuff. I was getting a cold about every 3-6 weeks from my young daughter (18 months)

    until I started taking this stuff about 4 months ago. The cold I had at the time ended and I've not been sick

    since. I don't know if it's placebo effect or real, but don't much care. I'll continue to take the stuff if I

    continue to not get sick.

    Other than that I take a multivitamin.

    - zinc
    - sometimes a

    multivit
    - protein shake (just started)
    - 2g of vit C a day if I feel a cold coming on

    Honestly, a better

    approach to this kind of healthy living is to sort your diet out.

    - limit junk and ready-made foods: obvious

    reasons. You should really try to cut these completely from your diet, but it is hard
    - good balance of fruit/veg

    and meat: to provide a good balance of protein (AA's), fats etc.
    - fish and nuts: omega-3's and other EFA's.

    Brazil nuts are a good source of magnesium as well
    - lots of varied fruit and veg.: to many benifits to list, vits

    and fibre to name two.
    - milk: calcium
    - oats: fibre

    There are exceptions (a lot have been listed here

    already), but you can do a lot for your health this way.

    And it's cheaper.

    And it tastes better.

    Default Healthy foods

    Breakfast of my

    champ:

    - Oatmeal (Heart health, energy)
    - Made with skim milk instead of water (calcium, protein)
    - Wheat

    bran (some more fiber)
    - 1 TBsp ground flaxseed (heart)
    - Blueberries (allegedly one of the healthiest foods on

    earth - anti-oxidants)
    - If no blueberries then maybe a couple of walnuts sprinkled on top
    - Maybe a TBsp of

    wheat germ (Vit A if I remember right)

    It sticks to your ribs, tastes good and is very healthy.

    Another

    favorite here is:
    Vegetable stir-fry (frozen mix of your choice)
    With cubes of chicken or turkey
    and tofu

    (firmest kind)

    Boiled cauliflower, blended with some cream added makes for a great imitation of mashed potatoes

    (South Beach Diet recipe)

    Here's my personal rule:



    If it has alot of calories - It better taste darn good (like chocolate)
    If it does not taste darn good - It

    better be very healthy for me and/or have few calories in it

    By applying this I have completely and forever

    eliminated some foods - like fried stuff. This rule is customizable to any taste.

    I'm in the process of trying to

    lose weight so I currently take a multi-vitamin (specifically a One-A-Day Weight Smart along with the usual

    vitamins, it also has green tea extract), 1 Vertia Herbal pill twice a day (for reproductive health), 3 tablespoons

    of milled flax seed (a great source of Omega 3). I also take a phase 2 starch blocker to assist with weight loss.

    For good measure, I've thrown in 30 minutes of exercize, three times a week. I'm thinking about switching my

    multi-vitamin to the GNC Women's Ultra Mega.

    Aim to increase the amount if exercise you do

    over time. Make sure it stays hard; if it's hard, your body is still having to adapt to accomodate the change and

    (depending on your routine) this should make you leaner, increase your metabolism, increase bone density, etc.

    NG, your breaky looks great. I

    could use one of those right now.

    Folks, you would literally not believe all the supplements I take day in

    and day out. I want to get my entire ritual down in print one of these days soon, but to give you a general idea of

    the severity:
    - I eat only vegetarian food and (almost) only organically grown stuff, mostly raw food
    - I fast

    every Monday until evening when I have a large organic vege juice, green super food yada yada shake that would make

    most folks barf just to look at it
    - I drink only spring water and boatloads of it every day

    B

    Thanks for the advice... I started exercising back in January

    when the weight loss from dieting alone started to slow. Now that I have a routine I enjoy, I actually look forward

    to exercising.

    I'd love to hear a good shake recipe! I've dabbled

    a little with it. But so far only nonfat yogurt and fruit based + compatible ingredients (soy protein etc). Once you

    start with shakes, it literally makes Slimfast look like junk food!

    Right now I take a good quality

    multivitamin, protein powder, a probiotic, B Complex, fish oil, and vitamin D during cold and flu season. I think

    taking a good quality supplement is just as important as choosing which supplements to take. For my multi, I use the

    Rainbow Light brand. All of their vitamins are food based, which are more easily digested and absorbed into the body

    than synthetic vitamins. They make a good <link deleted> and <link deleted> vitamin, which is nice because you only

    need to take one pill.

    Oh... 2005. Talk about a "zombie"

    thread...

    Although our most recent poster sounds like someone pushing a product, I will chime in by saying that

    as an old guy, I still pretty much limit my suppliment intake to just a couple of basic multivitamins and a half

    tablet of a super B complex (watching my B12 especially) a week. I realized I am already getting a passle of

    "natural" viatmins in the foods I eat (besides the added ones they put in during processing some foods).

    There

    seems to be plenty of solid evidence from trusted sources that are now saying that a daily multi is really a waste

    (just get "expensive urine"), and that even the synthetic vitamins, although perhaps not as well absorbed, still

    provide sufficient levels. (I don't think many of us are complaining about our synthetic pheromones now are we?).



    It would be nice if there were ways of cheap efficient and effective vitamin level testing to see where our

    bodies stand so to speak. But like most anything in medicine, most things are based on opinion. Those "Minimum Daily

    Requirements" are primarily conjecture ("SWAG" - Scientific Wild-Ass Guess) anyway, and seem to be subject to

    frequent change (although not "officially").

    Even here with vitamins and suppliments I would tread carefully.

    There is danger in getting far too much, perhaps more than in getting too little. Listening to your own body, and

    taking things one small step at a time is far better than just blindly following someone else's "opinion."




    And those are some of MY opinions...
    The opposite of love isn't hate.

    Thumbs up

    These days - fish oil, folic acid and vitamin C. I also take Chinese ginseng/royal jelly mix

    and shou wu chih, a subtle yet remarkable herbal drink which the Chinese say is a longevity

    tonic.
