I have taken the past 7 days off from all supplements with the goal being to slowly reintroduce them to feel/see the effects. I'm going to wait another 7 days, but as I approach the reintroduction of 1 supplement at a time, I wonder if anyone knows what reactions to be cognizant of for the following supplements...
- Vit E
- Fish Oil
- Chondroitin/Glucosamin (I use Super Cissus.)
- Vit D
Does each of the above have a noticeable effect? Right now, I'm operating in the notion of "if you see/feel no change, there is no change".
Also, I have not yet had blood work to determine any deficiencies, so maybe I should wait until then.
Btw, I've been on PH for a couple months, read it daily, and I'm thoroughly impressed with the knowledge many of you have share. You're awesome!

I think it is a good idea to "test" the effects of supplements and I'm planning on doing something like this. 7 days off might not be enough time for the fat soluble ones which is most of your list. Our bodies are good at conserving micronutrients. During your off days, keep a detailed list of how you feel like energy, sleep, mood, warm/cold. Add one thing and keep tracking. I agree that if you can't detect any difference then you are replete in that nutrient and don't need to supplement it.
