Are my supplements okay?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Could someone please tell me if the dosage and the kind of supplements I take are alright? Should I remove or add anything? If it matters: 17 year-old girl / workouts - 3 times a week / paleo / rarely eating fruit and nuts (if I'm eating nuts, I prefer walnuts) / eating meat and vegetables; also eggs / drinking plenty of water

Supplements (per day):

3 capsules omega 3

3 capsules probiotics

700mg vit C

300mg vit E

200mcg selenium

In general, supplementing with antioxidants is a bad idea. Vitamins C and E appear to do more harm than good (selenium might be okay though).

I agree. Probably should add MK7 just to be sure that extra OC from the vitamin D gets carboxylated. She is young, plenty of time to calcify. Reference: http://www.lmreview.com/articles/view/Vitamin-K2-Essential-for-Prevention-of-Age-Associated-Chronic-Disease/

While there is some evidence to suggest C&E can cause complications, you are most definitely choosing to subscribe to the lesser-supported theory. If you're going to be scientific and claim scientific facts, you need to be scientific about it. A TINY fraction of studies support that C&E are harmful. If you believe the statistics of these studies, then you have to believe the overall statistics. Which say you are wrong.

agree 100%. especially the magnesium. i started taking it after a lot of people mentioned it on the site and it's really helped me fall asleep faster. i use magnesium oil and rub it on my skin.

I would look at adding 2000iu Vitamin D3 (during the winter months if your not getting regular sun exposure), 375mg Magnesium (before bed promotes more restful sleep) and 800mg Calcium if your not getting enough from your diet (eat more kale, spinach & collards). Otherwise looks good.

Here is a good article from Whole9 on supplements.
