Daily vitamins and supplements. They are a part of my overall health plan. No, not my health insurance plan, but my own personally implemented health plan. That which I can do for myself. Self responsibility. That kind of thing…
The bigger part is diet and exercise. Then comes supplementation. At least that’s how I see it.
“At this stage of my life, health wins out over cheapness” said a recent commentator here on MSB. What a nugget of truth! I love that. I know when we’re “young”, health isn’t much of a concern. We all believe we’re invincible. Getting old is way down the road. And what is “old” anyway? I’m barely over 60, but I feel much younger! (That’s what counts, right?)
I don’t care what your age is. Health SHOULD BE number one. Sadly, it’s not for most people. I’ve been guilty myself in the past.
There is a terrible obesity problem in the United States. There are a number of reasons for this, not the least of which is the typical American diet consisting of way too much sugar and carbs.
This diet of too much sugar and carbohydrates shuts off your body ability to burn its own fat. Instead, the body feeds off the sugar (from sugars) and glucose (from carbohydrates). The excess which the body doesn’t need during any given day is stored as fat on the body. Eventually, bad things begin to happen. But I digress.
I’m getting a little off track here, but I just wanted to say this… To switch your body to burning its own fat (especially when there’s “tons” of excess fat to be burned) is to go Keto (and/or Carnivore). You can look it up yourself. In short, that means consuming less than 50 grams (preferably less than 20 grams) of carbohydrates a day. The weight will peel off like an onion. Okay, done with that.
What Vitamins and Supplements Do I Take Every Day?
This is not medical advice. I am not a doctor. I am just telling you what I take every day based on my own supplementation desires and research.
The reason I’m posting this has to do with the Covid. Someone on the other site was talking about it so I replied with a partial list of my own supplementation – some of which is geared towards Covid mitigation. So I thought I would post this for your potential interest.
First, regarding Covid… Most everyone who dies with Covid does so because of at least one comorbidity (the presence of one or more disorders or diseases). Additionally, the vast majority of those who die with Covid are the elderly and very elderly.
One more thing, those who do happen to get the Covid will survive. 99.5% if you’re 50 – 69 years of age. 94.6% if you’re over 70. Oh don’t get me wrong… no one wants to get this thing! If you’ve ever suffered through a bad flu (I have), it is awful!
One last thing before my vitamin list. The NUMBER ONE thing you can do to generally mitigate the Covid is to get rid of (if possible) any “comorbidity” that you might have. This includes getting your immune system in order. Basically, get as healthy as you can! Okay… I’m done with the lecturing. Just trying to motivate a little bit.
My Vitamin List
I am not endorsing any particular brand. The linked products (amzn) just so happened to be specifically what I’ve chosen for myself.
K2 100 mcg (NatureWise)
D3 5000 IU (NatureWise)
Super B Complex (Nature Made)
Quercetin 250 mg (Amazing -AN- Nutrition)
Zinc 30 mg (NutraBio)
C powder crystals 500 mg (now)
Qunol Ultra CoQ10 100 mg (Qunol)
Vitamin C powder… 1/8 teaspoon mixed with water is 500 mg. I generally do this twice a day.
The Qunol CoQ10 is for general heart health.
Most Americans are significantly D3 deficient. Important!
K2 and D3 should go together.
Zinc and Quercetin should go together.
Mrs.J likes the following pill organizers, which are what we use (shown above)…
