Some supplements including calcium and magnesium to consider

Very briefly,  some supplements to consider:

1)a)Quality fish oil, molecularly filtered to ensure there are no contaminants and also high in EPA and DHA[plant sources often contain Omega 3 fatty acids but the body inefficiently converts them to EPA and DHA]  probably in conjunction with Krill Oil

b)Krill oil(see links)

2)If you aren’t getting enough sunlight of sufficient strength to produce Vitamin D then a liquid Vitamin D supplement is probably a good idea, it should be in a palm oil solution

3)Antioxidants: consider ALA, Glutathione, Vitamin E and Vitamin C, among others

4) If you are getting insufficient amounts in your diet, Calcium and Magnesium

5)A high-quality protein powder, preferably a whey-protein isolate
-you can mix it with milk, cream, throw in frozen or fresh blueberries, other berries etc.(avoid high sugar smoothies generally due to insulin spikes)
-can be used as a meal replacement, as an important part of a weight-loss regimen, as a supplement when exercising vigorously to help spare/build or repair/strengthen muscle etc.
-whey protein boosts immunity

6)Branch-chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s)
-if you exercise strenuously including weightlifting, strongly consider taking BCAA’s

 

I think it goes without saying that you shouldn’t overdo supplements, that you should cycle them and that you should try to get as much of their contents naturally as possible.
