Psyllium husk

What is that good for?

It cleans out the intestines. It expands greatly by taking on a lot of water and moves through your digestive tract like a plug, collecting debris along the way.

Lifting stack, some pre some post -
Citrulline
Beta Alanine
BCAA's
Creatine
Glutamine
Fenugreek tabs
If I'm on protein it's goat milk based.

General nutrition. Not everything everyday -
Probiotic: Get this and use it http://www.progurt.com.au/products_incubator.htm
It's trillions of CFUs over whatever tabs you are taking.
Spirulina, lots.
Colloidal minerals

Zinc
Calcium Ascorbate
A good Multi
Magnesium, tabs or oil.
Fish oil or Flax
Olive leaf extract
Nascent Iodine
Maca powder
I'm low on Vit E at the moment, so I'm taking that.

Since fish oil seems to be a staple for many of us, does anyone know if the brand matters?

I know it's important for it to have a good ratio of DHA/EPA to fish oil in mg. But, that's all I know.

I take a Kirkland brand from Costco. I've also taken the NOW one. But that one I'd have to order online and it runs more expensive.

I've posted this before in a Fish Oil thread... a comparative chart and rating of the different brands.
Kirkland/Costco is good, for DHA/EPA ratio and it's mercury free. Also less expensive than other "premium" brands.

Personally, I like Nordic Naturals. However, it's helpful to consider the difference between the soft gel pills and fish oil that you can consume in liquid form.

For intermittent fasting they recommend at least 4 grams of fish oil. Can't speak for other brands but two capsules of NN omega-3 only equals about 700mg of fish oil, so in order to get 4g a day, you would need to consume somewhere around 7-8 capsules per day. By contrast, if you decide to go with the oil in liquid form, you would only need about one tablespoon per day. That one tablespoon would contain close to the 4g of omega-3.

However, soft gels/pills are easier to carry when you travel.

Morning: 2 large coffees with Chaga Mushroom (powdered variety stirred in) overall it brings sustained power through the day and vastly better mood. Even my vision gets better from this stuff, always had 20/20 but it seems to give me hawk vision.

Wellman multi. One a day with meal. I like how they include ginseng and garlic.

Fish soup. The natural bone broth/fish oil from this is better than pills. Luckily I'm near the sea and a great restaurant. Even the most expensive fish oil pills always made me feel nauseous. I add cayenne to the soup for circulation. There is a lemon on the side that gets squeezed in.

I used to take retarded amounts of supps, but had a poor diet. Now I'm cleaning up and scaling way back. I still cycle off whatever I'm doing every 90 days.

Vitamin D, Vitamin C and zinc. I take all three daily. I suspect Vitamin C and zinc boosted my immune system - I haven't had a single cold this fall/winter season, whereas before I would usually catch a cold between one and three times per season.

Multi vitamitamin, ZMA, Vitamin D, L-Theanine and Hyperzine A when im studying. Hyperzine A works wonders for me when im studying and lets me focus more deeply without getting distracted too much. Much recommended
 
I noticed several people saying that they take casein protein.

I would STRONGLY suggest against taking casein --it is a practice based on outdated bodybuilding advice and is actually a great way to ruin your health. When people talk about the allergy-inducing effects of eating dairy, they are talking about casein. Ingesting casein of any form is associated with higher levels of inflammation and problems like gut and autoimmune disorders.
 
multivitamin, high strength oregano oil(for greasy foods), pumpkin seed oil(for better erections and heart health), zinc.

Sometimes tribulus terrestris for testosterone boost. Tongkat ali is way too expensive.

Used to take turmeric for digestion.

16/8 intermittent fasting works well for me. Sometimes do OMAD (One Meal a Day).

Purina Megel

A good multivitamin-multimineral complex (you will get all trace elements, most vitamins, and some minerals, but don't expect to get your calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamin C from it, but you get all the rest). You may consider high nutrient foods, like spirulina, etc, but expect to take a lot, eg 5-10 grams of spirulina per day.
