              There is a need to really do your research as this is one of the biggest fraud industries preying on people wanting to be more healthy. I only take the ones that I am in need of based on my blood test results every 90 days, there is real danger of taking too much of a supplement ( Vitamin D, Potassium, Calcium, ) Vitamin C is the only one that you can not really over do as the body flushes it out rapidly and we never get enough of it through diet.

              A balanced diet is the best alternative to supplements.

                Don't forget the synthesis of D even from the sun isn't simple. It still has to be converted into an active form in the kidneys iirc. It's been a long day.

                A good review.

                http://health.howstuffworks.com/well...d-from-sun.htm

                A synopsis of the synthesis of the hormone/vitamin in humans.

                Your body is able to produce its own vitamin D3 when your skin is exposed to the sun's ultraviolet rays, specifically ultraviolet (UVB) radiation. When UVB rays hit your skin, a chemical reaction happens: Your body begins the process of converting a prohormone in the skin into vitamin D. In this process, a form of cholesterol called 7-dehydrocholesterol (7-DHC), naturally found in your skin, absorbs the UVB radiation and gets converted into cholecalciferol. Cholecalciferol is the previtamin form of D3. Next, the previtamin travels through your bloodstream to your liver, where the body begins to metabolize it, turning it into hydroxyvitamin D, which is also known as 25-hydroxyvitamin D or 25(OH)D. The kidneys then convert the 25(OH)D into dihydroxyvitamin D, also called 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D or 25(OH)2D -- this is the hormone form of vitamin D your body can use [sources: The George Mateljan Foundation, Holick].

                Wow I know they are not regulated. For me I only take what I am asked to take.
                Omega oils 1200 mg
                multi vitamin cut in half
                grape seed extract anti oxidant
                baby aspirin
                arginine with ornithin 2000mg
                all but the last one is two drs instructions
                the last one is for blood circulation and keeps my blood preasure perfect at 110/70 about.
                No blood pressure pills at 60.
                I do take a med for ADHD that is supposed to raise blood pressure but does not for me nor race my heart
                I asked to read others opinions
                as for the low vitimin d have you gone to a specialist to find out why. And there are plenty of vegtibles to give this to you as well. I juice three times a day.
                I also now make them in the morning before I leave my house one in my house.
                I can say juicing is a big energy booster for me.

                  L-Arginine and L-Ornithine are amino acids and I would not consider those supplements, they are needed because we do not produce them as much with age. They increase the carbon dioxide in the blood, they are good for the Libido also, among other things.

                  Ornithine isn't an amino acid. Arginine is a conditionally essential amino acid.

                  L-Ornithine is one of the products of the action of the enzyme arginase on L-arginine, creating urea. Therefore, ornithine is a central part of the urea cycle, which allows for the disposal of excess nitrogen. Ornithine is recycled and, in a manner, is a catalyst. First, ammonia is converted into carbamoyl phosphate (H
                  2NC(O)OPO2−
                  3). Ornithine is converted into a urea derivative at the δ (terminal) nitrogen by carbamoyl phosphate synthetase. Another nitrogen is added from aspartate, producing the denitrogenated fumarate, and the resulting arginine (a guanidinium compound) is hydrolysed back to ornithine, producing urea. The nitrogens of urea come from the ammonia and aspartate, and the nitrogen in ornithine remains intact.


                  Ornithine lactamization
                  Ornithine is not an amino acid coded for by DNA, that is, not proteinogenic. However, in mammalian non-hepatic tissues, the main use of the urea cycle is in arginine biosynthesis, so, as an intermediate in metabolic processes, ornithine is quite important.[2]

                  I think what's important to remember is that our GI tract changes as we age and so does our ability to absorb macro and micro nutrients. Ergo one reason for looking at our microbiome.

                    I take supplements, and eat well. Eating well may be the most important impact to your health. As well as exercise. I eat meat. I eat less than I did in the past. My father in law is 7 years out of stage 4 non Hodgkin. He became a vegan and swears it saved his life. Michale Pollan has a good show on food. I think it is a pretty balanced documentary.

                      Well lets see here: I take a multi vitamin, vitamin e, vitamin c, and flax seed oil, I eat a high protein diet with enough carbs for energy and very little fat intake. I also exercise three times a week.. I am gonna be 60 in January and have the body of a 30 year old, I also feel great. No smoking, drinking, or getting high!!! I am a creature of habit all my days are pretty much the same. I don't drink soda's either.

                        Good fats are essential for health. Don't deprive yourself of them as they are needed for hormone synthesis, maintenance of the nervous system and absorption of say fat soluble vitamins. Perhaps what is more important is the ratio of omega3/omega 6 fats in the diet. Anti- vs. pro-oxidant.

                        The quality of the Omega 3 and 6 matter. Use a 2:1 ratio of 6 to 3.
                        When the Omegas are spoilt, they become dangerous, eg trans fats!

                        Good PARENT essential fatty acids (LA and ALA) are needed for Intracellular hormones (thromboxanes, ecosinoids, prostaglandins etc) and in the proper creation of Leucocytes, etc in the immune system. They are needed for the building of semi-permeable cell membranes which permit easy oxygen passage into the cell, and proper circulation and re-uptake of insulin. Omega 3 is also a clean burning muscle fuel.
