daily dose

This is my daily dose of encapsulated vitamins, minerals and other supplements.

 

It looks like a lot of pills, and it is (11!), but the scary part is that I eat them all in one gulp with just a little bit of water. I'm a pill masta'

 

Contents include:

 

Fish Oil with Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

I figure the japanese do pretty well on a diet of mostly fish. I don't eat a ton of fish so this is my fish supplement. It's supposed to be a cardiovascular booster...and as a white, overweight, american male, I need all the help with that I can get! I also like the fishy taste they produce about 20 minutes after ingestion. It's the taste of health!

 

Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM - 1,500mg

This is for cartilage and connective tissue repair. It's kind of an old persons supplement but arthritis runs in my family and my knees are already pretty messed up. I figure supporting my joints now, while they're relatively healthy is a good plan.

 

Vitamin C - 1000mg

I buy into the popular opinion that vitamin C is good for you.

 

Ibuprofen - 400mg

I'm old and have various aches and pains. I don't always include these, but more often then not I do. I once read an interview with a brain researcher and they said everyone should take 1 ibuprofen per day. Sounds good to me.

 

Centrum - everything and the kitchen sink.

I know I'm doubling up on a few things with this, but I like to know I'm getting a little bit of everything, even if my body can't metabolize all of it.
