I too am Swanking away. Have been for over a year now. I also consulted a nutritionists to aid me in my supplements and vitamins. Make sure you pay attention to your B12 and vitamin D. After all my blood test to sort out my levels I went on a serious regime.I cannot stress this enough. please have your levels tested prior to taking anything. NO 2 people are the same and we all need different things at different levels. Everything I have done since day one is on my blog if anyone wants more information on how things have gone.
Along with the Swank Diet I take the following. These are primarily to aid me with my fatigue and any cognitive issues. I included a brief explanation of what each is (not complete). It's a lot I hope you don't mind the reading.
Bio-D Mulsion Forte (Biotics Research)
Supplies vitamin D3 in an emulsified form to aid in uptake and assimilation, especially important for those with malabsorption issues.
Bioctasol Forte (Biotics Research)

My B-Tabs (Biotics Research)
This uniquely formulated combination of vitamins supports many metabolic functions including energy production, enzyme synthesis, and antioxidant activity. Research shows that Adenosine Monophosphate (AMP)is a precursor or building block for ATP. AMP is converted to ATP by the enzyme ATPase. AMP is fundamental in phosphorylation reaction and constitutes a vital metabolic link in energy, transfer mechanism, muscular contractions, enzyme reactions, carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Adenosine is a naturally occurring cellular metabolite. It is one of the four purine nucleotides responsible for protein synthesis. Also shown to help in areas such as obesity, chronic fatigue syndrome, immune system, nervous system, fatigue, stress, sleep patterns, herpes simplex, shingles, epstein barr virus, multiple sclerosis, pain, bursitis, tendinitis, tenosynovitis, chronic thrombophlebitis, varicose vein complications.
L-Carnitine HCI (Biotics Research)
Supplemental source of L-Carnitine, an amino acid like compound. L-Carnitine plays a critical role in fat metabolism and energy production, and therefore supports healthy heart function. L-Carnitine is derived from meat sources in the diet, and is therefore often found lacking in those on vegetarian type diets.
Phosphatidylserine (Biotics Research)
Supplemental source of this important phospholipid which is a structural part of biologic membranes. Phosphatidylserine is involved in signal transduction activity, and may positively impact cognition.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (Biotics Research)
Found throughout the central nervous system (CNS), Acetyl-L-Carnitine plays a key role in CNS metabolism, offering a source of acetyl groups for the synthesis of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter, and thereby supporting healthy brain function.
