I agree that there is no "magic" pill for weight loss or muscle building. (It's called WORKing out for a reason.)
However, I also am over 50 and have found several items that seem to make a difference at this stage of the female life. I also have NO prescription or over the counter meds taken.
I take an awesome multi called Immuplex. My history with this has been significant. (Taking large doses on a chiropractor's recommendation for a 10-wk duration cured my eczema that I'd had for 19 yrs! - It somehow addressed an inside imbalance for me and made the difference.)
I have also been recommended to take regular fish oil of some type. Right now I'm using krill oil. From some mention on Spark, I may start cod liver oil when that is gone.
I also take evening primrose oil, CoQ10, MSM, and vit. D+calcium+magnesium.
(Other than wanting to know what I take, my dr. doesn't give any indication that he cares one way or the other.) -- Since I'm not on any meds, there isn't anything to interact with.
