I take a multivitamin, D3 with Calcium, Multi B complex and I get an injection of B12 if my levels are low on blood test. I also use ORS tablets and drink a lot of water. Reason is because I have had my large intestine removed which makes it difficult to absorb some vitamins especially B12 and dehydration is a problem too.
You'd be better taking a multivitamin. Garlic disproved to significantly help heart disease and cholesterol.
Vitamin D since I was extremely deficient in it.
Just done a little research into this and it it looks like the aged garlic I've been taking for years isn't doing me any good, especially given the fact I'm on blood thinners and other drugs for arterial fibrillation. It does seem though that a lot of advice on supplements etc changes from year to year.
Vit C for gout
Multivitamin and Fish Oil Supplements on days I don't put sufficient effort in to eating healthily
Nothing except sometimes Magnesium because I get cramps in the legs.
I started drinking home made bone broths and eating organ meats like liver, heart and kidney etc and have never felt better!
These are rubbish I was told. Cheap quality, bad ingredients, throw them away when I bought the same ones.
Replace with Doctors Best or Pure Encapsulations so I did. I'll be honest, I noticed no difference but there you go.
Too add the EPA/DHA ones make for the WORST burps in the world. Like burping Brixham fish market.
This. Vitamin K2 mk7 is very important alongside vitamin D3 for proper absorption and to prevent damage to arteries and organs.
As for omega 3, I love Aavalabs omega-3 capsules. They're a Finnish company, wild caught and sustainably fished, heavy metal tested and GMP standard. Very high quality refined oils:
Daily dose: 2 capsules
Fish oil 2,000mg
Omega 3 fatty acids - 1,600mg
of which EPA - 1,000mg
of which DHA - 600mg
Vitamin E - 10mg
The perfect cardiologist-recommended therapeutic and preventative dose in two small caps. You can take one and still have a higher rate of supplementation than pretty much anything else out there. They're about £15 on Amazon for 120 caps (2 months supply at 2x daily). Peanuts really. @TonyLewis they're less than a third the price of the ones you linked, with much higher EPA and DHA, and meeting the same independent tests of purity and quality.
I take those, Vitamin D3+K2 (medically prescribed for life due to repeated osteomalacia with severe bone pain that morphine doesn't touch - 10/10 would not recommend), and a quality bio-available multivitamin and mineral because I have a restricted diet, am housebound a lot and have a lot of medical conditions. Fun, fun.
I only take vitamin D
Thanks - will avoid the ones I linked and go for the ones you suggested. I've ordered the very posh Nordic Natural Omega 3's so will see how I get on. At £50 a pop they better increase my IQ significantly. Keep a check on my posting quality and let me know in 2-3 months please.
Will go for these next to "compare".
Yes I'd be careful, messes with platelets IIRC
Aavalabs look like one of those made to sell on Amazon brands.
It says "Fish Oil" on the ingredients label and nothing else.
Nordic Naturals says on the label that it is fish oil purified from deep sea Sardines and Anchovies and in a triglyceride molecular form (the form naturally found in fish).
Given the cost I bet the Aavalabs capsules are imported in bulk from China and repacked in Finland, an old trick... But I may be wrong.
Ask them for a CofA for your batch and see what they send, I will do the same for my ones.
On the Amazon page:
...and from the website:
I'll email them and ask.
Info on the company HERE.
Emphasis their own. They seemed legit when I looked them up, back when I first started buying from them.
I wish I could stomach eating organs and bone broth, it's certainly very beneficial.
They have no manufacturing facilities, how on earth can they be sure of quality and origin?
It just looks like a white label re-brand.

Good choices, next time you buy fish oil try Nordic Naturals, you do not get the fishy burps with them.
