What Supplements Do You Take?

Interesting experiences. I've tried lots of supplements, and haven't noticed a difference from using any of them - except one.

Collagen or Bone Broth (same thing).

Had a nasty shoulder injury that would not heal for four months, and my girl recommended to me to use Bone Broth. I tried it, and it healed within 2 weeks!

Saw an old man at a Parish I infrequently attend, who would walk around with a cane barely able to move and could hardly get out of his seat. I told him to try bone broth. Next time I saw him a few months later, I asked him how he was and he said (in a thick British accent) "Nevvverrr felt better!!" and he's zooming around without any cane! He now serves in the Altar with the other Altar boys!

My father couldn't get out of bed in the morning, his arthritis was so severe. Got him on a collagen mix, and within 3 weeks all his pain went away and he is able to lift heavy gallons of paint like it's nothing!

Never seen any other supplements have such a fast effect on health. Collagen is basically grease for the joints. It's dirt cheap too. I surmise that back in the old days, Grandma would cook soup by throwing the bone into the soup. That's how people used to get their collagen. Nowadays most diets don't have this sort of thing, so supplements are extremely helpful.

I notice if I use collagen supplements I can lift heavy at the gym with barely a creak in my bones. But without collagen supplements, my knees pop like fireworks. The stuff is for real.
Brother Sam... Please share the types and brands of collagen (powder I presume?) that you prefer.

This is the one I'm using now... I may try a different one in the future, because as long as the ingredients are pure, then the brand doesn't matter. This stuff is simple to make. Take bones from the meat industry, and grind them up and boil them into powder form.

As long as the ingredients are just "bone broth" or "bone broth peptides" (doesn't matter what animal) then it should be good. That's not to say there aren't frauds out there or that some brands have a better type of processing than others. I may try other brands in the future. But currently I'm using the above because for 30 bux you get enough bone broth powder for at least 6 months.

I usually add a scoop into my coffee (which lasts me for two days) and half a scoop with my protein shakes. It's tasteless. If you don't like powder, there are capsules too.

You may need more or less collagen depending on your body size and state of your joints. If your joints are in trouble, you'll need more dosage. Experiment and see what works for you. Not like this stuff is scarce, it's cheaper than most drinking water.

So in terms of dosage how many scoops per day on average are you taking?
 
I take lots of crap depending on what I feel like my body needs at the moment I have a cabinet stuffed with crap. But just generally speaking if you want a basic health routine:

Multivitamin, Orange Triad is really comprehensive or Now Adam if you want something cheaper

Krill oil

Coq10



Everything else is pretty much take as needed, there are things I would add as "essential" such as berberine, extra mag/zinc or evening primrose but again that's more subjective for myself.

Oh and get a pack of prewashed organic power greens when you go grocery shopping and stuff a handful in your mouth before you leave the house in the morning, it makes a difference trust me.

This was a good tip, Samseau. Having a chronic sore knee I went right out and got a bottle of the best available at my local discount club store -- a Youtheory brand with Collagen types 1,2,3 -- and after a week of taking 6000 mg daily the knee is much improved. Mobility is improved and pain greatly reduced. Pretty impressive. I also ordered the one you indicated above and will move on to that when the current bottle is finished. Thank you.
