Supplements...What Are They Really Good For?

I really believe you get what you pay for when it comes to supplements. $10 for over 300 pills is probably worth about $10 worth of fried ice. Supplements aren't cheap, but there are several web sites that you can find good prices and there is a great new web site that digs in deep on whether the supplement you are thinking of taking is worth taking it and worth the money.

Here are a list of web sites I search for the best price on the supplements I take:
But before you buy check out, an independent organization that presents un-biased research on supplements and nutrition. I love this web site!
Here are the list of supplements I take, I'm tweaking it all the time as I come across information that convinces me to start taking or stop taking something.
  • Symbiotics Colostrum Plus® -- 480 mg - 2 every morning - I'm a huge believer in Colostrum, it's great for your immune system.
  • Source Naturals Arctic Pure® Krill Oil -- 500 mg - 1 every morning - You can take less Krill Oil than other fish oil, which can save you money.
  • Dr. Mercola Organic Broken Cell Chlorella -- 1 g - 5 every morning
  • Jarrow Formulas Astaxanthin -- 10 mg - 1 every morning
  • Jarrow Formulas Milk Thistle -- 150 mg - 1 every morning
  • Vitacost Selenium SeLECT® -- 200 mcg - 1 every morning
  • Garden of Life Primal Defense® Ultra Probiotic Formula -- 1 every morning - a must for keeping your gut flora healthy.
  • B-12 -- 2500 mcg - 2 every morning - I also keep this with me to take before working out if I need some energy.
  • Vitamin D-3 -- 2,000 IU - 1 every morning
  • Solgar Gentle Iron® -- 25 mg - 1 every morning - I've always been anemic, so I have to take this.
  • Selenium -- 200 mcg - 1 every morning 
  • Tums - 2 every morning
  • Country Life Chelated Magnesium -- 250 mg - 4 Tablets every night - if you get leg cramps, like I do this has helped immensely!
