    magnesium, d3, k2.

    eggs, meat, oogly bits, fish, shellfish, veggies, fruits, full-fat dairy. bone broth.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Track your foods in one of the online food track programs and use that as a baseline to see what you might be low on compared to RDA (which I pretty much don't believe, but another topic). I think D3 is the current wonder pill and seems like everyone I know is deficient so I take that, along with magnesium, C, B complex, zinc.

    I do take vitamins and minerals! I take: HCL, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Quercetin & Resvertrol. I also take a multivitamin sometimes only because my RDA in most vitamin and mineral areas is far over what's recommended, or so according to the FDA standards... And can those really be trusted?

    I take lots of supplements... I'd take a whole lot less if I didn't currently work at a supplement store where I get plenty of free stuff and a good discount.

    As far as vitamins/minerals go...
    I take Garden of life's raw vitamin code for men. I also take their zinc.
    I take shilajit for fulvic/humic acids and minerals.
    I take cell power silica and biosil for silica
    I take various juiced greens powders
    And while I don't really count them as supplements, I take fermented CLO for A, D, and O3s, and sprinkle kelp powder on some foods for iodine.

    And that's just vits+mins, not even getting into aminos or herbal supps, or things like zeaxanthin or astaxanthin (I can't recommend astaxanthin enough btw!)

    In a perfect world with a perfect diet grown from perfect soil (and plenty of organ meat) none of these are remotely necessary. But I find they do me good, so...
    I never know what to put in these things. I write songs!

    Thanks for the Astaxanthin boxcarguy07, that looks interesting.
