Nutritional Supplementation Recommendations
So much information around regarding what we should all be taking, or not taking. The facts are that our diets just are not good. Most of the food we eat contain high concentrations of Omega 6 fatty acids (bad) and low amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids (good).
This ratio creates a state of chronic inflammation and increased pain as we get more experienced in life. (get older).
Compensating for this, as well as other things, helps decrease pain and inflammation as well as help with many other health issues.
So, based upon the most recent stuff out there from people much smarter than I am on this stuff, here is a list of supplements that they say we should all be taking daily. I am trying to myself, and yes, it seems like a lot. Especially that Omega 3, yuck. I opted for a liquid supplement from Nutri-West that was surprisingly not vomit inducing instead of popping 6 500 mg horse pills a day. The liquid concentrate is one teaspoon a day, and taken like a shot with a chaser, isn't all that bad.
Vitamin D3 5000 IU per day
Multivitamin-Mineral (should be copper free)
Omega 3 fatty acids 3000 mg per day
Omega 3 antioxidants
N-Acetyl-Cystein, or NAC 240 mg per day
Acetyl-l-carnitine 680 mg per day
Alpha-lipoic acid 240mg per day
CoQ 10 10 mg per day
Resveratrol 100 mg per day
Curcumin (Tumeric) 200 mg per day
UN-denatured Whey Protein 21 grams per day
