I don't like multi-vitamins because they tend to give me junk that I don't want. I take calcium, magnesium, zinc, k2, vitamin d, and a bit of cod liver oil. I get more than enough of the rest from food, and I'm probably actually getting enough zinc but more zinc is demonstrably better to a point.
multi for now b/c it gives me some extra b vites, the iron I need (I test and tx ferritin levels as needed), selenium, zinc etc....though I'll drop it soon
vitamin d (1000 IU per 25 lbs body weight except on days that I get bikini sun at noon to the point just before a burn occurs.
fish oil (enough to balance my Ω3:6 ratios
the longer I'm doing this paleo/primal/exercise thing, the less supplements I'm needing but I still take *as needed*
calcium (150ish mg 2x per day.....little to no dairy intake but good gut health and optimal d levels = dramatically decreased need for calcium)
magnesium (125 mg 2-3x per day......i used to take 600-100 mg)
zinc (30 mg every other day or so....but lately less and I seem to be okay)
b complex - jigsaw active b time released.....to make up for the b vites I'm not getting from organ meats
krill oil - 1-2 per day from ovulation to onset of next cycle...*totally* eliminates pms. *love it*.
I also have a bunch of amino acids and other goodies *just in case* for anxiety and depression.
