hey there hlm, glad you got a chuckle.
multi sounds good - go for a natural food sources product if possible. is it a multimineral also?
re cal/mag, try for roughly calcium = 1200mg, magnesium = 600mg per day. get the magnesium in citrate form if you can. it's the least likely to give you the runs. if you find 250mg capsules, start with one a day and then work up to 2. three will probably be a bit much, at least it is for me.
for both calcium and mag, as well as vit e, eat lots of really dark greens like kale. they will also provide vit K which you need when supplementing D3.
i will add a recommendation for zinc 25-50mg which i think is also at one of those links i posted ... sometimes i have to take 100mg to keep it high enough.
as for fish oil, currently i'm taking some by o3mega+ fit. i got them as freebies so i am not sure how much they cost.
they are anchovy, sardine and mackerel only .835 gram pills.
the EPA is 148 mg and the DHA 96 mg.
on the bottle it says to take 2 per day which works out to .5 grams EPA and DHA. there are 60 softgels in the bottle
i have just noticed (bad me!) that it also has borage oil, natural vitamin E and rosemary extract
(FYI therefore this product could be useful in conjunction with a regular multivit - because your multi probably only has alpha-tocopherol for vit e. is it dl-alpha, or d-alpha on the bottle? what dosage?).
guess i should not have been taking an E8 complex too, recently ... this may be why my vit E was through the roof at the jun 19 test!!??!! (although could also be that they put the sample in the wrong vial - have to get it re-tested today).
