I take Centrum Silver, potassium, magnesium, biotin, Vitamin D and baby aspirin - also fish oil capsule.
There were others I took at one time, but didn't make any difference when I quit - and might eliminate more of them as well. I try to get my nutrients from my foods. Potassium I take for muscle cramps and never get them anymore.
EWEFLUFFY IS NOW KICK-SS
TODAY IS THE TOMORROW YOU WORRIED ABOUT YESTERDAY. GET ON WITH IT!!
BEFORE YOU CAN START A NEW CHAPTER - YOU HAVE TO FIRST TURN THE PAGE!
Basic multivitamin, 2 different probiotics, B Stress Complex. That's about it. The likelihood is that most of them don't do very much for us, not being in their natural form, but I CAN notice the difference when I take the B Complex at least. And the probiotics definitely help as well. Not sure about the rest.
The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
Supplementation is a very individual issue. You need to fit them to your own specific issues and goals. I take a long list of things (follows), but many of them are intended to target symptoms of my scleroderma, Raynaud's, and leaky gut. Don't just adopt anything here without researching them for your use! And, with anything else, be certain you pass your choices past your healthcare team to be sure nothing will interfere with any therapy you may be under.
I think everyone needs to evaluate their own needs. I take quite a few supplements because I think it is very idealistic to think we can get everything we need from food. I take a high quality multiple vitamin, Vit D (because there's no sun in Washington State for most of the year!), Vit C, a stress B, joint supplement (a triple strength blend of glucosamine, chondrotin, and MSM), and additional dose of MSM, which is a good for inflammation. That's a pile of stuff but I spread it out over three meals!

I think it varies for each person. I take folic acid because I don't eat vegetables. I also take biotin cause my hair was falling out once, not taking a chance on that again. Sometimes vitain D and C in the winter.
