Periodic table of Vitamins - Supplements: are they needed in the modern World?

Here is an interesting graphic 'Periodic table of Vitamins': http://www.kombuchakamp.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/periodic-table-of-vitamins.png

Do we need supplements? I am of the opinion that because of agricultural practices depleting the soil that supplementation may be needed, even if eating paleo. We use supplements but I am trying a staggered routine, so not the same supps everyday and on weekends we do not take supps at all.

No, I guess "reenactment" isn't for everyone. However, mediocrity obviously is.

I'll buy my local Grassfed meat and veggies and call it a day. Saving up for my kid's home school and college education, retirement, going to college myself, and paying rent, really aren't luxuries. Reenactment isn't for everyone and it's kind of snotty that you imply it all the time.

Great question. I've been against supplements, but I have recently started wrestling with my decision on cutting them all out. I am interested in reading the answers.

LOL Argue FOR your limitations and you'll find thats all you have. I'm from the midwest but stuck in the burbs of Philly, Ashley. I have worked with MANY clients over the years and once you PRIORITIZE food over frivolous "Necessities of Society", you can.

Yes.....after I lay out more details to the basic thirty levees. The next area is going to be mitochondria. We start with the macro leptin story and then we head to the 30 ft level to see how food interacts with energy biogenesis at the cellular level.

Not everyone has the luxury to live out in the country and have access to regular hunting. My husband works in the tech field and I'm a stay at home mom. It'd be nice if we could all run away and start a paleo commune out in the Canadian wilderness but it's not realistic for some of us living in Apartments in the city and not making enough to get wild game delivered.

Why not eat a variety of dif nutrients every day instead? I "hunt" the freezer daily for a dif meat. Sometimes we cull a deer, buffalo, caribou, moose, elk, or boar. I manage to pull up a beautiful Alaskan salmon out of these PA waters at least 3x a week. A few times a month, I manage to arrow a pastured chicken or wild turkey. I "forage" every day for a few dif FRESH, organic vegetables when were not growing our own. We eat offal a few times a week. We make bone broth. We make organic sauerkraut. I have never been vaccinated. I haven't even had a cold in 20 years. Ya know what I don't do? Supplement.

I use testing to decide. Not everyone needs supplements. Some however do. The treatment plan needs to be customized to the patients needs

I'm with you as an advocate for supplementation when taking in to consideration the condition of our soils and the feed we supply for animals that we eat. In my opinion it is a good idea to supplement so long as that is what you are using it for....as a "supplement" to an already balanced quality diet. Not to try to create sufficiency from a crappy diet. After getting your ducks in a row with food, my daily recommendations include: -an quality EPA/DHA supplement (fish oil, krill, or at least a decent alga DHA) -probiotics (6-9 strain probiotic culture of at least 2 billion of each) -vitamin D in the months of no sun exposure -and from time to time to cover your bases, a whole food and/or multivitamin supplement Also I consider on occasion for special few, digestive enzymes, extra anti-oxidant, Mg/Zn, but these I don't recommend for everyone and not everyday
