    Do you take supplements?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I just finished Chapter 4 in the PB and it got me curious. I have never taken supplements, the iron in many multi-vitamins make me sick. But after reading that chapter I can see how certain supplements can be very beneficial for overall health. So..

    Do you take supplements? If so, what do you take?

    For me, personally, I only supplement with fish oil and a good quality whey protein since my goal is to be more muscular. I feel like I'm getting a lot of my nutrients from what I'm eating already.

    A bunch of Fish Oil (>3g a day), Natural Calm on some nights and the occasional whey protein shake. Now that I have a meat topped salad every day I don't need anything else

    4g of fish oil Omega 3, 5000ui Vitamin D, Centrum Silver, Best MSM 1500mg, Potassium Citrate 200mg, Vitamin C 1g. I'll be adding some Calcium\Magnesium soon.

    I only take the Potassium if I'm under 50g of carbs for the day, because I don't want long bouts of acidic urine which could lead to kidney stones (has not happened yet). The Centrum Silver is because of the extra ingredients from the regular version and the lack of iron which I get from meat.

    These are dr-specified and based on regular blood tests-

    -Omega 3 Fishoil (At least 6 a day)
    -DHEA/Pregnenolone (50mg/100mg)
    -Vitamin D (10,000 IU) Most people would be fine with 2,000 IU.
    -B Complex with Iron. I get a strong mix from my dr that also has Vit A, C, and a good mix of minerals like magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, manganese, and chromium.
    -Maitake D Fraction (360 mg) This is a mushroom extract that assists the immune system.
    -Maitake SX Fraction (about 3,000 mg) This is a custom blend mixed with green tea that boosts insulin sensitivity.

    At night:

    Melatonin with GABA, 5-HTP, and L-Theanine (12 mg). This is to sleep better and wake up better as well.

    Wow, you guys take a lot of supplements. I've never taken any to be honest. The supplement I'd probably benefit from is vitamin D, because I don't get much sunlight throughout the year.

    My question for you: Do you get any immediate benefits from supplements? Can you feel it? If so, which ones? (My knowledge in supplements is non-existent; I've always felt that whole foods give us everything we need.)
