I don’t think I mentioned a good vitamin E supplement, which wouldn’t hurt a thing. 200 to 400 units a day with food is fine.
In addition, a mineral supplement would be wise as well. If you’re using Himalayan sea salt, you’ll need a good source of iodine. A good brand is “World Organic Liqui-Kelp Daily Iodine.” A few drops a day will do the job.
You should always take the natural form of any vitamin if it’s available. Vitamins A, D, and E can be manmade, which means they’re a synthetic form, but they also come in their natural form which is what you want to purchase:
Vitamins A & D – from fish liver oil only
Vitamin E – Natural forms of vitamin E are d-alpha tocopherol, d-alpha Tocopherol acetate, or d-alpha Tocopherol succinate. The synthetic form is called dl- prefix.
Take all three of these with food because they are considered ‘oil soluble’ vitamins.
There are many types of calcium. But the only one that is an actually a food form is calcium hydroxyapatite. Depending on where you’re located, it may be difficult to find.
As far as the magnesium, well-absorbed forms are magnesium aspartate, magnesium glycinate and magnesium oxide.
Probably 90 out of 100 times, or more, the ingredients in the store-bought vitamins I’ve named will not cause an allergic reaction, that’s not to say that someone occasionally will not experience an allergic reaction to any given vitamin.
If you’d rather be certain that you’re not receiving any possible allergy-reactive vitamins, look for vitamins made by Thorne Research or Dr. Ron’s Ultra-Pure. You can expect these to be expensive.
It’s best not to buy any supplement containing enzymes. Here’s a list of various enzymes, any one of which may show up on a label.
You’ll receive all the enzymes you need in a completely natural form in the correct amounts (since your body will make them itself with stimulation from the following product). Purchase a product by the name of Digestive Grape Bitters. Ignore the teaspoon of bitters recommended on the label and only use about a half a dropper full of the bitters before, during or after meals. Drink plenty of water when you’re taking these as they also flush out the liver keeping it healthy.
