    1. Multi Vitamin -- good quality
    2. Fish Oil Source -- Low Mercury and Heavy Metals
    3. Probiotic -- Helps with digestion
    4. Whey Protein -- ya'll know this
    5. Greens Drink -- Gotta get your greens -- lowers PH

    EDIT: Rodja is right I want to raise PH with the greens drink...

    I work for a chiropractor so I get good deals on all of his products. Personally I use the Chiropractors Blend Protein and Greens Drink. All natural and organic sources. It has 8g of protein in it too. So I get my greens and also a bit of protein to go along with it which is really nice.

    You did that for me actually, so thanks! It's good stuff by the way.

    Has anyone tried straight spirulina powder? I know that it's no substitute for green vegatables, but a lot of us are already stocking up on super multivitamins and zma anyway.

  12. You do NOT want to lower pH; you want to increase it.

    1. Multi-V/M
    2. Fish and Krill Oil
    3. Sesamin
    4. Anti-O blend (Na-RALA, GTE, NAC, GSE, etc.)
    5. ALCAR
    M.Ed. Ex Phys


  13. my 5:

    1. Multi V

    Interesting lists here, guys. Keep em' coming. It's very interesting to me to see what everyone considers their base supplements.

  16. I searched for the Trader Joe's stuff, but am coming up empty... you all have a link?

  17. Mine might be slightly biased but;

    Fish oil
    CLA
    Toco-8
    EndoAmp Max
    iBCAA's

  18. For me, it's :
    1. Vitamin D (lacking for those of us in the north)
    2: Fish Oil (balance out Omegas 3-6-9)
    3: Beta Sitosterol (cholesterol support)
    4: Cissus (joint support)
    5: Good Whey/Protein after workout drink.

    Disclaimer: I like the writeup on Resveratrol but I get tendonitis anytime I take it for consecutive days.

    I read somewhere that Beta Sitosterol reduces all cholesterol across the board, including HDL, not good if true.

    Haven't heard this, but not denying that it could be true. This is why I go with Toco-8; it's been proven to raise HDL and lower LDL.

    That is incorrect.

    Lipase-Catalyzed Synthesis of Conjugated Linoleyl beta-Sitosterol and Its Cholesterol-Lowering Properties in Mice.

    Li R, Jia CS, Yue L, Zhang XM, Xia QY, Zhao SL, Feng B, Zhong F, Chen WJ.

    Coconut Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Tropical Agricultural Sciences, Wenchang 571339, Hainan, China.

    Conjugated linoleyl beta-sitosterol (CLS) was prepared from beta-sitosterol and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) via lipase-catalyzed synthesis in n-hexane in the presence of molecular sieves. Its plasma cholesterol-lowering properties were also studied. The optimal biosynthesis conditions were as follows: beta-sitosterol concentration of 50 mumol/mL, the molar ratio of CLA to beta-sitosterol of 1:1, the lipase concentration of 20 mg/mL, and 4 A molecular sieve concentration of 60 mg/mL in n-hexane at 50 degrees C with vigorous shaking of 150 rpm for 72 h, and the highest yield of CLS reached 72.6%. The isolated CLS mixed with mice feed had good cholesterol-lowering properties. It decreased serum total cholesterol (TC), serum triacylglycerols (TAGs), serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), atherogenic index (AI), liver weight (LW), liver index (LI), liver TC, and TAGs of mice, which was shown that CLS could prevent the formation of atherosclerosis and moderate the fat pathologic changes of liver. However, the HDL-C was not decreased, which proved the advantage of CLS over the other cholesterol-lowering products.

    I works I have used it for years to lower my cholesterol, it is also good for the prostate.

  24. It's worked for me too.

  25. life support
    good anti-o blend
    multi
    Omegas

    fifth choice is open, currently going with Quadrcarn as a carnitine blend

    not sure why folks are listing protein, thought this was more of a life extension kinda list....

  26. I see a lot of tocco-8 talk, but arn't most of us getting enough vitamin E from our sports multis? Isn't it easy to overdose on it?

    most forms of multi's are only alpha tocopherol, which is easy to get too much of and in turn lessens the effects of other forms of vit E. Toco-8 has a proven balance of all 8 forms for optimal health benefits.

  28. - NoXidant
    - JuVo Raw foods
    - Fish oil
    - Vitamin D
    - Astaxanthin

  29. -Vitamin D
    -Fish Oil
    -Alcar
    -Green Tea (When I have extra $)
    -Protein Blend

    Honestly Vitamin D will probably be in my medicine cabinet for the rest of my life. For all you guys that get curcumin what kind do you use. I have tried it before and thought it was awesome but it was made by a local company who has since gone out of business.
