I'm not really much of a breakfast person, but I take a few supplements in the morning that require you to have something in your stomach. I've read that often it's because the supplement needs fat to better enter your sytem. Would it be ok... (more)
Hi everyone! Learning and reading more about paleo, and I came across Dr. Ron's Organ Delight supplements. Has anyone tried them? Do you think they are worth taking, if you are not a very adventurous meat eater? Thanks in advance!
The only supplements I take are vitamin D, and a calcium + magnesium (2:1 in favor of calcium). I just don't know how much to take at what time (the reason I'm supplementing lots of calcium is because I'm young, and don't respond we'll to casein) (more)
Depending on the sourcing of your food you may benefit from omega-3 supplementation as well. I supplement vit d and omega 3 daily because I cannot afford the more organic etc meat sources and so the omega 3 helps balance my 3:6 balance.

I ordered two bottles of vitamin D3 containing 240 capsules of 2000 IU vitamin D3 (Nature's way). However, it says 'safflower oil' on the ingredients list. Would such small amounts of safflower be problematic? What would you do, finish them... (more)

I know oil doesn't freeze per say... But I purchased some Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil. Just before we moved, the roommate accidentally dropped and busted the bottle before I really got to use it regularly. It's winter and things... (more)
It will freeze a little, but that is not a problem, in fact it is often used as a way to extend shelf life and reduce the fishy flavor. So don't worry about it.

What are your thoughts on this pre-workout supplement? It gives you the energy to work out without the crash of energy stimulants. Other pre workout supplements on the market are not only caffeine/sugar laden but have actually be proven to cripple... (more)
There are a lot of spelling mistakes and typos in your advert: hetic, recieving, caffienated, thats, etc. Why do we need more than meat and fresh produce? I think it's tacky to advertise in your first post on paleohacks.
Can anyone explain my strange vit D reaction? To begin, let me say I have recently (this summer) taken decent daily doses of D-3 (4-6000 IU) without suffering any side effects at all. On top of that I was getting plenty of daily sun exposure (no... (more)

We had a great "top five paleo grocery staples" question a few months back. Recently, I've had to add a few supplements into my regiment to offset a possible copper toxicity. It got me wondering about what else I could be lacking (or... (more)
I decided to make the question open ended, leaving room for negative experiences. But, in all my time supplementing, I've never found a single source supplement where I have had such a discernible effect on my body. In high school I would take... (more)
