I've been doing a very low-carb ketogenic style of paleo (for specific reasons that aren't relevant here) and have been supplementing with various vitamins and minerals that I might be lacking. I know that certain nutrients can only be... (more)
I'm thinking of purchasing Mark Sisson's Damage Control Master Formula. I'm looking for something that will help with my low energy levels and kick start some weight loss, as well as promote good health, but $129 is way too much to spend on a... (more)
And I'm talkin' mostly about things like broccoli/spinach and mushrooms/onions/tomatoes and such. Peter at Hyperlipid seems kinda anti-veg, at least the papers he talks about show no health benefits. Dr. Harris seems to not advocate veggies as... (more)
We hear a lot in the media about this or that being the lastest 'superfood.' Soy is a classic case. However, on inspection, many of these foods do not turn out to be so super after all. Case in point, someone was recently touting purslane (a... (more)
From Whole Health Source: http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.com/2009/12/butyric-acid-ancient-controller-of.html After thinking about it, I've decided that butyrate must have been a principal component of Dr. Weston Price's legendary... (more)
Butter oil has never been nutritionally analyzed- that is putting a lot of faith into one of Weston Price's ideas. I have read that one ounce of butter oil is made from 8 ounces of butter. I don't see any need for butter oil- just eat lots of... (more)
I'm not usually one for counting, but at the moment I want something to plug my meals into to see if I am missing out on any nutrients. What is the most detailed software online for this? I could care less about cals or macro ratios, I just want... (more)
FitDay.com Great for food and keeping log of activities in the journal section but exercise section is a bit useless. Can also set nutrient goals and track weight and stuff.
Given what seems a general concern regarding many plants etc under a Paleocentric diet is it Best/most preferable to get the majority of vitamins and minerals from organ meat? I know this is the major source used by the inuit and many turn of... (more)
Does fat have to be present for certain vitamins to be absorbed by my body? Is taking fish oil along with the vitamins a workable substitute?
It seems there is a lot of confusion and uncertainty about dosage of the fat-soluble, "Paleo" vitamins A-D-K-E. Everything I've read concentrates on toxicity and taking as much as possible to be safe. Vit-D seems the most studied and... (more)
Give this link a quick read and let me know your opinions. This is partly discussion, but I would like to know what the Paleo Community thinks of this. http://eatingoffthefoodgrid.blogspot.com/2009/10/pleistocene-diet.html I don't disagree or... (more)
If we're supposed to avoid processed foods, how can we justify vitamin supplements? As Kurt Harris says, "There are no special supplements, drugs or testing required." Yes, he adds a disclaimer that he's not offering actual medical advice. ... (more)
You are only half-right in your assumptions, so that is the issue here... For example Kurt Harris doesn't think of Vitamin D3 as a supplement, its a 'replacement' (read his post called simply 'Vitamin D'). That replacement is 'patching up' our... (more)
I've been taking AST Multi-Pro 32X multivitamin/mulitmineral for a few years on Ross Enamait's recommendation (recommended for strength athletes with intense training loads). They're super cheap and I feel good, but I notice that they don't have... (more)
Weight loss is my primary objective, for the time being, so I'm consuming little to no carbohydrate in my diet. Also, I can't afford to shop for higher quality meats and vegetables regularly. I'm usually limited to what I can find at a regular... (more)
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)

http://ariix.com/pdf/Optimals.pdfThat is a link to a PDF describing their multivitamin. They split their vitamins and their minerals.Any opinions on this?
Hey, so after supplmenting with magnesium glycinate after a suggestion from someone on here (and having it relieve my muscle cramps almost entirely), I'm very interested in learning more about how and in what combinations vitamins and minerals... (more)
Hey everyone! So...my body has healed pretty well...except for my keratosis pialris! I inly eat some white ruce now...cause I need a lot of carbs, with my body type and was kind of starving without enough carbs on paleo...I still haven't really... (more)

A long time ago I used to take 8,000 IU of Vitamin A daily. This stopped my acne 99% I since stopped taking it because I read about vitamin a toxicity and it scared me haha! Want to be healthy aswell as acne free! So my question is: ... (more)
EDITS: I am understanding more and more how Methylation contributes to overall health, and a lot of the health problems I've been having are seemingly linked to it.. What I didn't know was how sulfur in the diet affects this. I eat a lot of... (more)
I have my opinion formed but I wanted to see what you guys think! Do you take it? Why or why not? and if its not asking too much, what else do you take? Thanks!
Okay, so I find that any multi-vitamins with too many b vitamins give me acne bumps, so I started taking KIDS gummies, cause they don't have nearly as much! But the one I have been taking has 30% the daily value of iodine in one gummy, and I only... (more)
Maybe the skin issues stem not from the b vitmains but from inflammation associated with how your body might be dealing with all the sugars in cereals... (Or both)
Likely a dumb question, but nutrition can be surprising so I might as well ask. Can one leach fat-soluble vitamins into oils (e.g. herb infusions) like one can with water with regards to the water soluble ones? Inquiring minds want to know if they... (more)
