    I take 198mg of potassium citrate, 200mg of chelated magnesium, 100mg of CoQ10, 200mcg of chromium picolinate, a men's multivitamin, and a B-complex every night. As a result: no muscular cramps, no muscle twitches, better blood sugar control, better sleep, and more alertness. It's worth it to me.

    I take 2 fish oil capsules and 5,000-6,000 IU of Vitamin D every day.

    5000 IU D3 (anyone find the big doses cheaper than the smaller ones?)
    2-4000 mg Omega 3
    Probably adding a Cal Mag Zinc dose, but haven't yet.

    The Eades recommend them: Coenzyme Q10 is a powerhouse that most people don't produce enough of, and chromium picolinate has been shown to lower blood sugar.

    Stabby, you're absolutely right.

    It's standard to be vitamin D deficient (virtually everyone is unless supplementing because they don't get sun at the intensity needed for D production). Because it's standard to be D deficient - and K deficient, it's standard to need incredible amounts of calcium to overcome the poor absorption and poor assimilation of calcium

    Vitamin D and K replete individuals likely need signficantly less calcium though no one knows how much that is. Cannell indicates that Bruce Hollis might have the best idea because of his area of research w/in the D field, but I can't find anything specific and he's not yet saying.

    From food and supplements combined I'd been getting an intake of 1000 mg calcium and magnesium. I think I'm cutting back the calcium as I have more muscle tension than I should. I'm going for 600 mg from all sources.

    Best,
    Katherine

    When you guys talk about the fish oil you're taking are you referring to the amount of DHA and EPA or what the bottle says is "fish oil"? What exactly is the rest after the EPA and DHA? Is it beneficial at all or pretty much just a filler with only DHA/EPA amounts mattering? I've always been confused by that.

    Sounds good to me. That seems to be the average intake in eastern Asia and they do perfectly fine. A little bit of fermented tempeh, soil that isn't bare of magnesium, and working the fields in the sun all day and no wonder less calcium is more over there.

    I am working on getting off HBP meds so I am trying a combo of omega 3, co q-10, garlic oil and folic acid. in theory they are supposed to help with cell regeneration and blood flow. so far I have noticed an overall reduction, but not enough to come off my meds completely.
