Just curious as to what vitamins/supplements y'all take daily? And do any of you use digestive enzymes?

I take meds: Levothyroxine and Atenolol. Supplements: a multivitamin and a calcium/D3 combo. I take Benadryl at night for allergies and the added benefit of drowsiness.

I tried Resveratrol and Biotin. Both gave me migraines. I think I'm super sensitive to things lately. I also quit taking Magnesium.

I take a multi w/no iron (iron makes me nauseous because I don't need it), calcium/d3 combo, extra vitamin c and CoQ10 (keeps my otherwise borderline-high blood pressure in check).

Vit C 500 g

Complete vit B complex

D3 1000 iu

All for general health

Selenium 100ug

Sea Kelp (for a thyroid kick up the pants)

MSM 750 mg


The last two for skin hair and nails. The horsetail has really helped my nails.

Usually take Magnesium Citrate as well

I could pop pills all day, given the advice out there. You have to cull them to what you personally seem to need.

I also use Maca powder if I make smoothies. Nice malty taste and gives you a slight boost.

I see I posted on the last thread. Since then I stopped the fish oil supplements as I eat masses of oily fish anyway and the capsules can be rancid which is not good.

I don't use digestive enzymes. And I am really bad about being consistent with my supplements. I have a shelf full and randomly take them. BUT here is what I try to take:
multi vitamin, D3, resveratrol, L-glutamine, Chromium Picolinate, potassium, magnesium and I have a slew of others that I take every once in awhile.

Yes--digestive enzymes are wonderful!
I used to take them quite regularly; I would feel tired after almost every time I ate, and I believe the enzymes eliminated that tiredness. I don't remember to take them as often, now, unless I feel too full or something.

And I don't take them when I take a carb blocker; they cancel each other out, lol.

I also take probiotics.

And I always have papaya enzymes on hand for upset tummies.

I was taking digestive enzymes for awhile (I think I have gallstones from the looks of an xray at my chiro) because I was having bloating issues and slow digestion. Now that I've been JUDDDing awhile I've discontinued taking them and all seems fine.

I also cut a lot of other supplements noticing no difference and now I am down to just taking:

Ubiquinol (co-q-10 for those over 50 LOL)
Krill Oil
St. John's Wort
A really good food based multi-vitamin

I take D3 in the winter and this time of year only on days I don't get out in the sun.
