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.

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.

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?

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 take...

women's senior multivitamin
Ca + D3
Vitamin K2
Vitamin D3 (huge dose!)
Vitamin B12
Vitamin C
niacin
chromium picolinate
iron
magnesium malate
potassium
zinc
probiotic
digestive enzymes
turmeric
Evening Primrose oil
glucosamine/chondroitin
gingko biloba
omega-3s
CoQ10
SAM-e
L-lysine
L-carnitine
L-arginine
trans-reveratrol
7-keto

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.

While not exactly a supplement as it were, I have been adding turmeric and/or curry powder to my meal, generally at least once a day. I've heard they're anti-inflammatory.

And, again as I understand it, that helps lower CRP.

I'm interested also. I read a lot about supplements & I'm confused. I've added 1,000 Cinnamon Capsules to my supplements 2x a day . Connie

I'd like to "hear" this as well -- probably been said here before, but it has yet to sink in for me.

I am on Centrum 50+ (one a day) so far... but surely need more, as I am not doing fruit and veg at present.

I was reading in Atkins about suplementation. Other than a multi-vitamin, what do you think are important vitamins to take.
