    I don't take any. I took some D3 once and felt like shit. Same with fish oil.

    I take fish oil, D3, and B1 (thiamin). I really notice less energy when I don't take the B1!

    Fermented cod liver oil
    Magnesium
    D3 on non-sunny days
    And when my calves get cramps, a little potassium -- or I eat a banana.

    Does popping some raw cubes of liver count? Thats my current multivitamin....at least for this week. I do D3 in the winter though.

    I take:

    Multi
    K2
    D3
    C
    Magnesium

    I eat fish instead of taking fish oil. Omega 3 fats oxidize even more easily than omega 6 fats, so I worry that fish oil capsules would be rancid by the time I take them. I don't think I need supplementation anyway since I do eat fish, and I also limit omega 6 fats, so my ratio should be good.

    For some reason I read 'fish oil capsules' as 'fish oil cupcakes'.

    I was like CUPCAKES WHERE?! And then I thought, 'eeeeew fish cupcakes!'



    I need to sleep more you guys.

    I take iodine, selenium, and magnesium. Sometimes I skip the selenium because I eat a ton of egg yolks.

    In the cooler months I take D3 also.

    I'd love to find a good multi, but I feel awesome so it's not really a priority right now.

    Only things I take that I consider absolutely essential come from my personal deficiencies: B12 and D3.

    But, I consider my others important or I wouldn't take them: Kelp, Magnesium Malate, and Krill Oil.

    Unfortunately, due to life-long cramping trouble, I have started taking potassium and magnesium as of last week. Otherwise, vitamin D and real food cover the rest.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
