    If you could choose only three...

    Primal Fuel
    ... supplements, that is, what would they be? Is there a reason you find them essential?

    Assuming we're only counting on things we get from non-food sources (i.e. I eat seaweed to get iodine).

    Magnesium and Vitamin D. N=1 I feel better taking them.
    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.

    This! I started taking these two last week and I'm already not getting charley horses at night and feel like I recover much quicker after strength-training.

    My third would probably be calcium, which I plan on adding to my supplements soon.

    Yep, I agree with the three listed above, mag, D3 and ubiquinol. Maybe B complex too, but that's 4

    Fermented cod liver oil and high vitamin butter oil

    Actually I do quite well with no supplements whatsoever. These two are just insurance.

    Be careful supplementing D3 and calcium. Improved metabolism of calcium through D3 supplementation reduces your need for calcium, making it easy to overdo it
    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

    D3 - I will never question the importance of this again.
    B Complex - mostly because I like when my pee is neon, but also I have more energy.
    Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar, which I guess is really a food; I drink a little in water every day.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
