    o Vit B complex 100mg

    o Ester C 1,000 mg

    o Fish oil (twice daily)

    o Resveratrol

    I take 4000IU Vitamin D, a B-complex, B-12 overdose, 600 EPA/DHA (fish oil), and a multivitamin daily. Helps with my workouts and mood.

    The one worry i have about supplements and other herbal meds is that they aren't FDA regulated. I really wonder about the quality of the preparations. And, how do you know there isn't rat poison in them or whatever? You really don't. That is why i shy away from some of this stuff because you really don't how or where it is made or what kind of oversights on them.

    I don't totally trust the FDA. In fact, there is rat shit in peanut butter. The FDA says its within acceptable limits. So go an slather that on your bread !

    Trust the Chinese equivalent and our surplus pet problem would be solved.
    Poison toothpaste, Heparin, etc.

    Ohh wait! Much of the contents for our prescription medicines come from China.

    I didnt say i trusted the FDA either. My point is there is even LESS oversight for Nutraceuticals and vitamins and supplements then there are things monitored by the FDA. Something to consider.
