    Fish oil comes from fish

    I take 5000IU D3 and 15mg zinc each day. Also use a magnesium oil spray. Rest comes from food, including organs, which I have for breakfast about 5 times per week
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    I take:

    A raw food-based multi
    Fish oil
    Vit-D (I am indeed deficient, but getting better so I've decreased the amount)
    Magnesium most evenings

    But right now I'm following more of a candida elimination protocol so I'm taking a Candida Cleanse formula and will follow up with a general liver support formula and probably a probiotic (I eat fermented foods every day) -- just one bottle of each though. More for a little assistance, not a permanent crutch.

    Cod lover fish oil (with vit D)
    Multivitamin with B12 and Magnesium (to prevent foot cramps)
    Zinc
    5HTTP (helps with sweet cravings)

    I am thinking about trying PAGG from 4 hour body book (ALA, garlic, green tea and some poly... whatever) once I am back from vacations.

    Things that did not do anything for me: creatine
