    D3, because definitely don't get enough sunlight for at least half the year. Magnesium, because in winter months we buy trucked-in produce that IMO is probably magnesium deficient.

    I'd consider a few contenders for third. K2, which works synergistically with D3 and calcium; even though Primal probably delivers all the K2 needed, it might be good if your diet tends towards the veggie or pescetarian end of the Primal spectrum.

    I also occasionally throw in mushroom supplements, even though I cook with shiitake, maitake, oyster, cremini, beech, and other mushrooms: a good blend of shiitake, maitake and reishi (NOT a good cooking shroom), or cordyceps sinensis. These are all-around tonics (adaptogens) that don't get much play in Primal discussions, but I think they enhance your immune response and are good anti-inflammatories. Cordyceps may be a good call if you are very athletic.

    I'm apathetic to the Primal label, anyway

    A high quality multi-vitamin and fish oil.

    My two docs (PCP & ophthalmologist) have recommended taking the fish oil in the morning and evening.
    I practice yoga (am a yogini) and am also a follower of Grok ... so my journal is Grokini Mary

Pairing that with living in New England (less daylight) and working in a windowless office 9+ hours per day... I need my D3 pills!

    Yeah, I'm lucky in that I have the usual Scottish skin from my mum's side and I don't have work (just uni), so I can afford to go out in a T-shirt when the sun's at its best. Considering that despite all this my D3 is STILL a bit low, I can understand how someone with more melanin and less available sunning-time would need their supplements! And I'm sure the extra D3 is keeping you energized and keeping your nice brown skin radiant, even in the horrible Winter weather
    Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

    I get blunter and more narcissistic by the day.
    I'd apologize, but...

    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.
