Our list of favorite vitamins and supplements

Here's the list of youth-enhancing supplements that I've personally taken and are part of my family's regimen.

Even if we're on vacation, we always start the day with Emergen-C. I like to spruce it up with seltzer and juice. This provides a nice base-level of nutrients.

I then add a packet of Green Vibrance. This is a potent mix of antioxidants and probiotics. My girlfriend prefers Immuno Shield instead.

We spruce up this antioxidant mix with 300mg's of Alpha-Lipoic Acid, 300mg's of Co-Q 10, and 4 mg of Astaxanthin.

We add 1g of Olive Leaf (150 mg Oleuropein) and 1000mg of Lysine for antiviral support every other day.

In addition, we take 150 mg of Hyaluronic Acid, for joint and skin wear and tear resistance, although many people prefer Glucosamine - a precursor.

My girlfriend takes a separate iron supplement, but I'm hemochromatosic, so I don't take it.

We love the Ultimate-10 probiotic from the Vitamin shoppe, although I don't take it as often, since I'm already taking the Vibrance...which has plenty of probiotics. Probiotics should be refrigerated, however, so when we're travelling, we take along Jarrodophilus. It's not as potent as the Ultimate-10, but it doesn't need to be refrigerated.

Since I'm allergic to cats, I take BioAllers, which, over a 6 month course, has caused a profound improvement in my allergies. I no longer need Primatine mist. I highly recommend this technique.

I also highly reccommend Bliss throat guard when coming off of antibiotics, or just before the onset of winter. It trains your immune system to deal with throat issues. You can feel it working.

Any suggestons would be welcome.
