Liver and Onions
Does anybody take any type of vitamins while on paleo? And if you do what kind? Which would be the best multivitamin?
Liver and Onions
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?
Magnesium glycinate, D3, K2, and collagen hydrolysate.
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!
Coconut oil (at least once every 2-3 days)
Vit B 100 complex time release
Grassfed beef liver whenever I remember (once every 2 weeks?)
Vit C 1000mg during times of high stress
HCLF: lean red meat, eggs, low-fat dairy, bone broth/gelatin, fruits, seafood, liver, small amount of starch (oatmeal, white rice, potatoes, carrots), small amount of saturated fat (butter/ghee/coconut/dark chocolate/cheese).

Thanks for the Astaxanthin boxcarguy07, that looks interesting.
