I take a prostate supplement - there's a lot that it contains but beta sitosterol and zinc are the main ingredients. Read Super Beta Prostate supplement reviews if you want to know more. This really helped - don't have to run to the bathroom so often!

I don't take the same stuff everyday but,

vitamin d3, magnesium citrate, ginkgo balboa, half a multivitamin, & krill oil..

Honestly, I take them because Google tells me to.

I try not to be a vitamin junkie but I have tons of vitamin nonetheless.

MSM (for stress fracture, and skin problems) Hyaluronic Acid (for stress fracture, and skin problems) Multivitamin (occasionally) Fish oil (for omega 3) Zinc Vit D Vit B

I don't take these all every day, I rotate and try not to take more than I think I can absorb.

I take a multivit and Omega 3. Natures Sunshine have a good tool on their website to see which areas you could do with supporting (eg digestive, glandular, immune, etc). I've put a link below

Every day I take:

  • Daily Multivitamin
  • Potassium (if no sweet potato in diet)
  • Fish Oil
  • Vitamin C
  • Milk Thistle (for healthy liver function)
  • Grape Seed Extract (to help absorb all nutrients)

I like to take care of my body...I think of it as a well oiled machine. Before workouts I take MusclePharm Assault (probably not Paleo) and before/after workouts I take some Whey Protein (ON brand)

  • Vitamin D (ain't no sunshine when she's gone . . .)
  • Fermented Cod Liver Oil
  • Vitamin K complex
  • Bulletproof Coffee


  • Beta-Alanine (just started experimenting with this and have it has made me a believer preworkout)
  • BCAAs (I typically train fasted so I take some before, during, and post workout)
  • Glutamine (post workout and during 24 fasting days)
  • Chromium (I read good things and then just got in the habit of taking it with a post workout meal)
  • Green Tea Extract (whenever I don't get a chance to drink a cup)

Before Bed:

  • ZMA (puts me out at night)

Magnesium (for digestion)

Betane HCL with Pepsin (digestion)

Probiotic (digestion)

I take a tablet of Nature's Bounty fish oil and a couple tablets of Beverly International Ultra 40 Liver concentrate with every meal. The fish oil pushes my normal diet close to 4:1 O6:O3, and I like the nutrients found in liver, but I can't stand the taste or texture of it.

I also take a multivitamin about twice a week to make sure I'm not missing anything major. In the context of my goals, any more supplements would be wasteful or even harmful. I do CrossFit, but I don't use popular CF training supplements like protein powder or creatine.
