The miracle fruit, known as Synsepalum dulcificum that temporarily changes the way you perceive sour flavors, essentially making things such as Tabasco sauce taste sweet.

Edit: they're pretty easy to find online, here's the link to a pack available on Amazon.

The Miracle Berry

You'll trip balls. Inside your mouth.

It's not as gay as it sounds.

EDIT: Link to where you can buy them. Link

u/Yarsl · 188 pointsr/Frugal

I'm getting my parents miracle berry tablets, so they can host a miracle berry tasting night with friends.

And then I got another packet for my boyfriend's family with whom I will be spending Christmas; that and a small assortment of foods that are fun to try, like limes and stout beer and Greek yogurt, for our own miracle berry tasting night. Miracle berries are fun and last ~1 hour; something that creates memories but not at a huge expense.

Price: $14 / pack of ten, $25 / two packs of ten.

https://www.amazon.com/mberry-Miracle-Fruit-Tablets-10-Count/dp/B001LXYA5Q Right here. Turns off your sour receptors, I think. But the acid can still damage your mouth so don’t like, start chugging citric acid after you take this.

  • B12: cannot stress that enough, don't believe sources telling you that you can get this vitamin from unwashed vegetables, tempeh, seaweed, etc. B12 is created by bacteria which lives in dirty enviroment and isn't associated with animal products either (you can get it from animals, but the bacteria living in their guts still do all the work). I recommend taking these Deva vitmains. It's highly recommended to take any B12 oral supplementation with food, because it bounds to certain proteins, allowing better digestion.

  • D: depends on where you live and what your skin complextion is; vitamin D2 (the non-animal version) is created when your skin is exposed to ultraviolet light (e.g. the sun). 20 minutes of daily exposure is enough for pale people (I think paleness reported in some vegans might actually be an adaptation technique), but if you're black and live in England, I would recommend an hour or so. This vitamin is needed for proper calcium digestion.

  • Iron: iron is not usually problem in males, women can have problem because of their period. There's a really easy trick to sky-rocket your iron intake - eat vitamin C with iron-rich food and avoid tea and cofee.

  • Calcium: dark green vegetables and soy products are rich on calcium. I drink fortified soy milk. Sneaky edit: spinach is actually not a great source of iron and calcium due to high oxalate content, as opposed to popular claims. Broccoli on the other hand... learn to love it!

  • Protein: that's a really easy one - lentils. Eat quinoa (tastes like rice, but has twice the nutrients), beans and peas. Wheat pasta is an empty food, try not to overuse it. Lysine is the limiting amino acid in vegan diets, but lentils have plenty of it (that's why you should eat them). Your daily protein intake can be calculated by this equation: your_weight_in_kg [number from 1 to 1.3 depending on your physicial activity, higher number means higher activity] = grams_of_protein_you_should_eat. For example: 80kg 1.2 (high activity) = 96g of protein.

  • omega-3: you should stabilize ratio of your omega-6:omega-3 intake to 4:1 (the best scenario would be 1:1, but that's very hard). Try to avoid sunflower oil and use olive or canola one, eat walnuts and flax seeds. But not flax seed oil, it tastes like a poison from armpit!

    -----


  • Food preparation: I highly recommend steam cooking, the taste is amazing and vitamins/minerals don't dissolve in water.

  • Society: Just don't give a damn about others too much, you are doing the right thing and don't have to apologize for anything. People don't like confrontation and depending on your personality, you might be tempted to talk about your veganism a lot at first. Try to hold it back for few months to sober up a little :)

    Have I congratulated you? No? Here you go: congratulations! :)

Try some miracle fruit, mberry Miracle Fruit Tablets, 10-Count https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001LXYA5Q/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_sx1hybZPGJH1T

Makes lemons taste like the sweetest things in the world and other odd situations.

u/misterskippy · 24 pointsr/Cooking

Why not some Miracle Fruit Tablets. They change the way you taste food for about an hour and its almost guaranteed your SS won't have them.

u/kurihara · 21 pointsr/todayilearned

Here's the kind that I bought, there's a lot of brands but this one seemed to have the best reviews. Not too pricey, and it was a fun experience, I'd recommend it at least once. Just get a potluck going with a group of friends!

http://www.amazon.com/mberry-MFT10-Miracle-Fruit-Tablets/dp/B001LXYA5Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1376711277&sr=8-1&keywords=mberries

Edit: Make sure to try wasabi. It tastes like ice cream, it was my favorite of all the things I tried.

u/pipocaQuemada · 18 pointsr/changemyview

> at 250% of your intake you could be putting yourself at a much higher risk for developing prostate cancer

[citation needed]

250% of the RDA of B12 is only about 7 micro grams.

Looking on Amazon, some of the B12 pills go up to 5000 micro grams.

Did that study show anything about the tiny amounts in Red Bull, or is just a bad idea to take a B12 pill?

u/vanillabean2492 · 18 pointsr/vegan

It can take up to 5 years for your B12 reserves to become depleted, but it's really bad if they do become depleated.

Here's an Amazon link to the one I buy. $15 for 180 tablets.

u/partyonmybloc · 18 pointsr/funny

That's the way I was about the flavor-changing berries on Amazon that someone linked once. I still consider it every now and then though.

Edit: Here's a link.

u/wellwasherelf · 17 pointsr/funny

What toothpaste do you use, specifically? Toothpaste with SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) is what causes the reaction. SLS is used as a foaming agent in a bunch of stuff (toothpaste, shampoo, etc.) and it suppresses your sweet taste buds. Kind of like those "miracle fruit tablets" which basically have the opposite effect.

u/Cassial · 17 pointsr/keto

1 - realize that this diet means serious business when we say drop the fucking carbs. Make it a rule to stay under 20 a day, and then you can gradually work your way up after being in ketosis for awhile. This is where ketostix do come in handy, if say you cheat one day and have 30g of carbs, but aren't sure if it knocked you out or not (otherwise you don't "need" them - if you're eliminating carbs you're in ketosis)


2 - eat fats to satiety, no magic number


3 - proteins are the next "goldilocks" number - too much and it'll turn into carbs, too little and you won't maintain muscle (if you're trying to tone up at all). The keto calculators should definitively answer the specifics here for your body weight.


4 - I highly recommend some form of electrolyte/vitamin supplementation. This should be a mandatory sticky - if you are avoiding most of the bad fruits (because they're bags of sugar and carbs for the most part) and eating real/good/clean food, you'll be getting way less salt than the average processed food consuming American. I recommend these - http://www.amazon.com/Emergen-C-Electro-Mix-Lemon-Lime-30-count/dp/B002HWRY5S this is way more economical as opposed to Powerade Zero. If you feel like crap and are getting cramps, you need to replenish them electrolytes (especially if exercising). Another good way to up the salt intake I've read a lot of folks here do is simply to drink a few tablespoons of beef broth a day (plus other good minerals in there).


5 - my personal rule I'll share to help, as it helped me the most - No cheat meals by myself, period. Resist the temptation to pull over and get fast food now because you're "soooo hungry". This frees me up to have the occasional dinner out / dinner date and not be guilty about it. Life happens, you will want to enjoy yourself, and you should, if you've been strict and honest with yourself about no cheat meals on your own.


6 - I hope you like avocado, bacon, and spinach. Those are my 3 staples I eat pretty much every day, despite them getting very boring, I really love eating them all together still. Avocado is very important because of the fat content + fiber, and so is spinach/broccoli. Keto is cutting out bread entirely, so you have to get your fiber from healthy vegetables, or you'll notice you'll be in constipationland, population you, very quick.


Keep calm and keto on.

u/RunnyC · 15 pointsr/Fitness

Source Natural: Life Force Multiple has a very good review from herman_gill over at /r/supplements. I've been taking it now for a couple of weeks and definitely notice more energy.

I bought it from Amazon, but I didn't really shop around.

Here is a link to a study and comparison of many different multivitamins. The real info starts on page four.

u/bouncehaus · 15 pointsr/keto

Not exactly related, but some tips I've found helpful:

Feeling Dehydrated? These do the trick! I drink at least one packet a day and it works wonders.

Constipated? Spoonfuls of flaxseed or chia seeds help (they're low calorie and have only fiber & good fats). Psyllium Husk Powder is also pretty effective. Having trouble washing it down? I mix 2tbsp of powder with 3-4tbsps of heavy cream, dash of cinnamon, maybe some splenda and its like eating oatmeal.

Don't notice any progress? Keep calm and keto on. Have faith, log your food in MFP, and take progress pics. You look at yourself in the mirror everyday. Sometimes, its hard to see the progress. Sometimes, it doesn't show on the scale. But, damnit, this diet works. Stay under 20g of carbs and run a daily calorie deficit and youre bound to lose some weight.

Lastly, enjoy the improved energy and focus after your body adapts. It' wonderful and probably my favorite part of keto. If you feel off, you're probably just dehydrated.

Best of luck!

u/gfxlonghorn · 14 pointsr/AskReddit

I just gave these a try, they are pretty cool:
miracle berries

u/greysplash · 14 pointsr/videos

As others have posted, tablet forms of these are available on Amazon

I've actually thrown "Miracle Berry" parties several times and it's a lot of fun! Just walk around a grocery store and try to think of everything that tastes sour and buy it! Some tips from my experiences... Each tablet will last you about 15-60 minutes (generally about 30 before effects diminish), not ALL the sourness goes away (lemons do not taste like pure sugar), thoroughly dissolve the tablet in your mouth (3-5 minutes) and then wait a couple more for the full effect, and lastly, bitterness is NOT the same as sourness. Eating the lemon peel will still be incredibly bitter.

Lemons/limes: Taste like the best lemonade/limeade ever

Pineapple: Incredibly delicious, but almost TOO sweet for some people

Oranges/orange juice: Really depends on the kind, but can substantially change the flavor

Hot Sauce: Vinegar almost tastes sugary, so it is both sweet and spicy

Pickled items: Again, vinegar becomes rather sweet

Cheese: Some cheeses taste like "dessert" cheese, especially sharp cheeses, cream cheese, cottage cheese, and goat cheese. Some people don't seem to be as effected by the cheeses as other though.

Beer/Wine: Not as profound as citrus, but definitely changes the flavor profile


Random note of caution: You'll end up wanting to eat a TON of citrus foods. This will give you an upset stomach if you don't moderate.

u/Kinkajou1015 · 13 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

There sorta is. Miracle Berries and by extension Miracle Berry Tablets.

It's not permanent and wears off anywhere from 30-90 minutes in my experiences, but it really does make things taste completely different. It's fun if you are a foodie. I could see it being a potential thing really picky eaters may need to get them to eat more foods and not stick with certain unhealthy options.

u/SmaltedFig · 13 pointsr/Drugs

We had some of those flavor pills that changed acidic foods to tasting sweet (made lemons delicious). That's worth looking into

https://www.amazon.com/mberry-Miracle-Fruit-Tablets-10-Count/dp/B001LXYA5Q

u/RabidNarcissist · 13 pointsr/Cooking

I have only had the tablets (Amazon link) and they do what they say, it was quite interesting to eat a straight lemon that tasted sweet.

u/flyingbaconspoon · 12 pointsr/leaves

The best hangover cure is hangover prevention. So if being hungover tempts you to smoke do everything you can to avoid hangovers. I myself get terrible terrible hangovers. Before bed i usually throw up all the alcohol in my system(on purpose, i want that toxic poison out of my body). I Take an optimen multivitamin or 2 before bed and drink at least 2 water bottles. I chug it like its beer. Hangovers are cause from dehydration, and you have to prevent that before the problem occurs.

Some people swear by Pedialyte. They say its like gatorade on steroids. Its starting to get around colleges now as "the" hangover cure. I have not tried it yet so I can't knock it but have friends that use it.

Just a couple of quick tips to prevent hangovers so you don't get the urge to smoke. :)

u/now_I_feelafel · 12 pointsr/ems

I'm like you- always hypotensive, former college athlete, low resting HR- and I'll go horizontal every so often in freak circumstances like you did. Got the workup, all they found was a 1st degree AV block that probably was not the culprit. But! While the cardiologist said she couldn't point the finger at anything specific, she suggested that I may have a propensity towards low electrolyte levels and should try to avoid drinking pure water when I feel wonky and shoot for Gatorade or something similar instead. Now I put half a packet of this lovely shit in my water bottle before my shift and it works like a charm. Even cuts back on motion sickness in the rig. Give it a shot, I heartily recommend it.

u/cratanoia · 12 pointsr/vegan

Supplement for a week and get your b12 levels checked again. Just to check in case there is a problem with you being able to actually absorb b12.

I take this supplement daily and defo recommend it;

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Garden-Life-Organics-Methylcobalamin-Raspberry/dp/B00K5NEPJY/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1484327538&sr=8-1&keywords=garden+of+life+b12

Best of luck, i'm sure you'll be fine just make sure you supplement.

u/heymikeyp · 11 pointsr/Fitness

Very cheap forms of vitamins that are very poorly absorbed by the body. Don't feel to bad though, Optimen was my first multi and I took it for a year when I was younger without realizing it was shit. It's on par with the shit multis they sell at walmart basically. Fear not for I know of very good multis for basically the same price. But depending on your activity life.

For an overall very good (one of the best you can get actually) multi, that's very balanced with superior forms of each vitamin, source naturals life force is the best bang for you buck, basically the same price as Optimen. https://www.amazon.com/Source-Naturals-Multiple-Activator-Capsules/dp/B000GFPD0G/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1497074875&sr=8-1&keywords=source+naturals+life+force

If you're a hardcore lifter, and/or you experience discomforts in joints or recovery, controlled labs Orange Triad is the best in this aspect because it also has very good forms of vitamins, BUT, it includes a joint/flex complex in it that would cost 45$ alone by itself at a CVS. And you get a 45 day supply for 28$, basically like a few dollars more then optimen or source naturals. I'm taking it right now and have for the past 3-4 years. I haven't experienced any joint pain during this time, amazing multi I would say. https://www.amazon.com/Controlled-Labs-Orange-Triad-Multivitamin/dp/B00104I5TS/ref=sr_1_1_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1497086164&sr=1-1&keywords=orange%2Btriad&th=1

Now Foods Adam Multi is also pretty damn good for the price if you want something cheaper then all of those. https://www.amazon.com/NOW-Adam-Superior-Multi-Softgels/dp/B003ENHSI2/ref=sr_1_5_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1497075275&sr=8-5&keywords=anavite&th=1

If you have any other questions of supplements you take or concerns just let me know. I've studied supplements and other nutrition info for years now.

u/YahwehTheDevil · 11 pointsr/DebateAVegan

>it's like people are playing some kind of game, and they just want you to join their side

I completely understand this, and it makes it difficult to figure out what's true. I do think that vegans sometimes stretch the truth in order to try to win converts, but I look at that as a misguided act of compassion, because the new vegans are going to learn eventually and then they may very well give up.

Personally, I believe that we can absolutely be healthy on a plant-based diet as long as we supplement B12, D3, and omega-3 fatty acids.The first two are incredibly cheap: This supplement costs $20 for a three-month supply of B12, on top of giving a host of other useful nutrients in case you're missing anything, and for $12 you can buy eight months' worth of D3.

As for omega-3 fatty acids, they are unfortunately on the more expensive side. A lot of vegans say that we can get sufficient EPA and DHA by eating ALA, such as from flaxseed and chia, and converting it ourselves. While there was a promising study saying that vegans convert ALA to EPA and DHA more efficiently that omnis, flax and chia on their own are probably not sufficient.

At the recommended dosages, supplementing omega-3 FAs will cost you about $15 a month. I usually buy Ovega-3, although I recently tried Tesla and liked it as well. We probably need more than 500g a day, since we're meant to consume a somewhat even ratio of omega-3 and omega-6, which would push the cost up to $30 a month or higher. I take three grams a day for mental health, although I doubt that most people would need that much.

As far as needing eggs and dairy to be healthy, I suspect that that's the work of animal industries spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt. Dairies have taken a huge hit lately as people switch to plant-based milk (now with 100% less pus!), and I think they'd gladly lie to the public in order to tourniquet their losses. For instance, we were all told that we need milk in order to have strong bones, right? But that's absolutely not true. First-world countries have higher rates of osteoporosis. And while I'm not sure how credible this is, the great Yourofsky believed that it was because animal protein is acidic, and to counteract that acidity our bodies draw calcium from our bones.

I'm going to wrap this up before I ramble any more, but in short, take B12 D12 and omega-3s and you will be all set!

*While it wasn't dairy, /r/vegan recently had a laughably transparent article about someone who was arguing not only that it was okay to wear fur, but that it was actually a
moral imperative* to do so. It was such a moving piece that I immediately drove to a mink farm and snapped those little fuckers' necks myself, because god damn it, I'm a patriot

u/erusko · 10 pointsr/vegetarianketo

lots of good info in that for those who say veggie keto isn't possible!

one thing i should mention though is that it looks like you don't use a food diary and this is something i recommend everybody to use for at least the first 2 weeks to get the hang of what to eat and how much of certain foods/macronutrients you can eat.

for example, it seems based on the example of your breakfast/lunch/dinner, you aren't getting enough protein and your fats may range on the high side. you can totally still lose weight like this, but you may be unknowingly sacrificing a lot of muscle along the way. i know the maxim of r/keto is high fats, moderate protein, low carb but the truth of the matter is the more fats you take in, the higher your calorie intake is and thus, slower weight loss. the best way too look at keto for me is to aim for 20 carbs or less, get your minimum protein amount to avoid muscle loss to (LBM in kg*1.5) which in my case is 120g protein and as low as fats as you can manage. for me, that would be 71g fat if i want 1200 calories a day. if i'm being particularly weak-willed that day, i'll up the fats to 104g fat and that's my absolute max because then i'll hit 1500 calories.

now you might look at this and say, wait a sec, don't you have high protein, moderate fat and low carb? that was my first thought when i was figuring out my diet but then i read a little closer and realized you need to base your diet on energy (read: calories) from these macronutrients. for example, each gram of fat is 9 calories. each gram of protein is 4 calories. using the above info, 120g protein is 480 calories and 71g fat is 639 calories (or 104g fat is 936 calories). based on calories, your fat content is much higher than your protein.


also, remember that r/keto can get away with constantly suggesting to raise the amount of fat in your diet because their main sources of protein are meats that are much lower in fats than your vegetarian counterparts. we don't have the luxury. the more protein we consume, we inadvertantly consume more fats. we vegetarians can't do this and need to watch our intake of avocados, sour cream, butter, etc...

sorry op, i got a little side-tracked in the middle of this comment and felt that the vegketo community might need some more clarification on certain things so i kept on writing. anyway, a lot of info in your guide is still pretty good! here's one more suggestion for people who don't know much about vitamins. even if you're not on keto, you should be taking a good multi (unless your diet is very balanced, and even then, i'd be skeptical!) these are by far the best ones i've ever had, and i've taken dozens of different brands. i've done some extreme manual labor in my day too and i definitely noticed the difference if i had one of these or not. regular multivitamins for meat eaters don't compare to this one for vegos.

u/tsanity · 10 pointsr/todayilearned

Oh my god, this stuff is amazing. You can actually buy these in pill form (totally legal) online, if you don't want to cultivate them yourself/can't find them locally.


Me and my friends went flavour-tripping one day. We took one miracle berry fruit pill each, then ate and drank everything from lemon, white vinegar, oranges, limes, sour skittles, beer and any other bitter/sour food we could get our hands on. Doesn't last long, but it was great fun. The lemon, lime and orange were super sweet, the white vinegar tasted like apple juice and the beer was unreal.

Links to the products in the pictures:

Better Than Bouillon
The chicken flavor (2g carb/serving & sodium 29% DV) is my favorite, but they have other flavors too (the vegetable base only has 1g carb/serving).
Sometimes I add Sriracha (1g carb/tsp), garlic powder (2g carb/tsp) or a tablespoon of tomato paste (2g net carbs/Tbsp).

Nu-Salt
(potassium 15% DV/serving) I can usually find it at the grocery store for less than $3, and there's about 90 servings per can. I've tried some of the other potassium based salt substitutes and this one tastes the least like chemicals (it still doesn't taste good, but the benefits outweigh the flavor).

Magnesium Carbonate
(1/4 tsp = magnesium 84% DV) There are a few different forms of edible magnesium salt. This type is hard to find in it's food-grade form, but it has the least offensive flavor IMO. Bonus; this form of magnesium is also used as gym chalk, so you can use any extra to dust your hands if you take up climbing ;)

Emergen-C Electro Mix
This is one of the few electrolyte mixes that doesn't have carbs, but does have a decent amount of potassium (most have potassium <3% DV, this one has potassium 12% DV). Bonus; it also contains calcium, manganese and chromium.

I found that I needed to make a bowl of salty broth about once or twice a day when I was starting out with the keto diet (to help with digestion, occasional muscle cramping, slight nausea, the habit of eating larger volumes of food, etc.). A few months into it I had throttled down my salt supplementation to about a two times a week. Of course, everyone's body and experience is different, so you should do what feels right for you.

They change how things taste to your taste buds temporarily! I've had multiple friends try them and say they're definitely worth the few bucks for them. They're on my list as well, mwahaha.

u/dreiter · 9 pointsr/nutrition

D3 is generally better than D2 at raising blood levels of D but D2 is still effective, especially at the dosing you are taking.

50,000 IU is definitely a 'doctor prescribed' dosing and is likely just to get your levels back into a good range quickly. Most people take 1000-5000 IU per day as a maintenance dose. Once the D2 runs out just go grab a reliable brand of D3 (I like Doctors Best) and take that once a day with a meal containing fat (fat helps your body absorb the D).

u/the_acid_queen · 9 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Yup, my physical a couple years ago showed I was vitamin D deficient. I started taking one of these every morning (vitamin D is oil-soluble and these gel caps use olive oil as a base, so the body absorbs them better). I went back for re-testing three months later and my vitamin D levels were completely normal.

u/sockrocker · 8 pointsr/Nootropics

If that wasn't just a panic attack, it's probably because you took A LOT of methylB12 (5mg) and methyl folate (800 mcg).

I like the B-Right B-Complex from Jarrow. According to the nutrition label it has:

  • 100mcg of methylB12, which is already 1,670% of DV
  • 400mcg folate, which is 100% of DV

    Now, Daily Value isn't necessarily the threshold, but you took 50 times the amount of methylB12 as is in that supplement, which is 83,500% of your Daily Value.

Welcome! The peace of mind and heart that goes along with it is a wonderful feeling. Let us know if we can help you in any way!

Our favorites from TJs:

Nuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds (I buy all 3 - raw, roasted and unsalted, roasted and salted), marinated vegetables, grilled artichokes in oil, hearts of palm, firm tofu (we buy 8 at a time!), sourdough bread, pumpernickel bread, peanut butter, almond butter, sunflower oil, arugula (if whole foods doesn't have it, I get most of my produce from aldi and whole foods), cashew yogurt, animal crackers, fried rice, japanese fried rice, black bean & corn enchiladas, multigrain crackers, rice crackers (I try to stay away from buying too many junky carbs but sometimes the kids come with lol and sometimes we'll get the soy ice cream), popcorn kernels, umami mushroom seasoning...there are quite a few other vegan things.

My friend loves the soy creamer (I just use unsweetened almond milk in my coffee).

I think your anxiety is very likely to be a psychological problem. You simply became very worried about taking "high dosage" of it, BUT I can put your mind to rest!


Last winter 2014/2015 I have been taking very high doses of Vitamin D3 for a little more than three months. I read some articles about possibility of healing some ailments in this way so I gave it a shot. Every day I took 50,000 BioTech Pharmacal D3 + 5 Life Extension Super K and I felt great and had no problems at all, important thing is to take Vitamin K2 with it.


My health problem has greatly improved and is now nearly gone. At the moment I'm taking D3 again since the beginning of December 2015 and will take it for another few weeks until my bottle is finished, this will be enough for me this winter.

So if you take it occasionally, it wont make any harm to you, but if you plan to take high doses of it regularly you definitely need to take K2 with it! this is very important as it redirects calcium from your veins to your bones, otherwise you'll calcify veins and this can create some serious problems.

Miracle Berries

They do work. Let them dissolve on your tongue for a minute or two and try stuff. Generally sour foods will give you the most effect turning them somewhat sweet. A cup of white vinegar tastes like Apple juice. Straight lemons taste like lemonade. Though there is a distinct "artificial" sweetener taste.

Note that you probably will get sick the first time - not from the tablet, but from the ridiculous stuff you will eat and think tastes good. And be careful with alcohol. Tequila tastes good, but it doesn't mean you should drink it like juice.

For me, i drink 1 packet of electro mix with some mio in the morning (mixed with 1L of water) and then i make another one right before my workout and drink that during and after my workout in the evening(after work). I believe working out drains electrolytes even faster on an active lifestyle, so i guess a steady state of electrolyte intake throughout the day does the trick. I haven't gotten any electrolyte deficiency symptoms( at least so far), but I know I'm not getting enough sodium in my diet(5k mg is a monster amount imo)

I've done keto and working out before AND totally ignored electrolytes so I know the bane of that deficiency, which I wish upon nobody.

u/Alexhite · 6 pointsr/vegan

This is amazing, I am so glad you are starting your journey to becoming vegan. My best suggestion is using cronometer.com to track your food for a good portion of time in order for you to get a handle on what foods have what properties and nutrients you need from them. Vegan diets can easily cover all your nutrients, I get all of the FDA's recommended doses of micronutrients daily and almost double their recommended protein amount. Here is a quick rundown of nutrients and vegan foods that are abundant in them

Macronutrients:

  • Fat- Avocado, coconut, oils, nuts, seeds, and soybeans (tofu, tempeh, edamame)

  • Carbohydrates- Fruit, Legumes, Grains, Vegetables

  • Protein- Beans, Lentils, Faux meats, Green Vegetables, Grains

  • amino acids are all present in all food just at different rations so eat a variety.

    You will meet all your macro-nutrient needs eating 2100 calories of any variety of foods. (eat and don't eat only fruit or drink oil for your calories, super easy)

    Micronutrients: (These are only the ones some lack on a vegan diet, take in consideration that less then 1% of the world eats all of their proper micro-nutrients and eating more vegetables and beans almost always makes people get more)

  • Omega 3- Ground Flax Seed, Chia Seeds, and, Dark Green Vegetables (roughly 10% per serving of dark green veggies)
    Omega 3's are the most challenging to get at the start of a vegan diet, basically you add in a tablespoon of chia seeds or flax seeds to your diet daily and it covers you or you take an algae based supplement. Omega 3 is not a necessary nutrient but it does greatly help you.

  • B12- Supplement this, here's a great article on it with recommended supplements www.veganhealth.org/articles/vitaminb12 you likely are already getting it from meat that got it from being heavily supplemented with b12, its a bacteria and we eat less bacteria now then throughout evolution so it's not exactly a vegan issue.

  • Vitamin D- The sun, supplements, or mushrooms left in the sun. I take this in the winter and in the summer I use the sun. Here's an article about it

  • Calcium- Nut Milk, Vegetables (Dark green especially), Chia seeds, Fruit, and Nuts.

  • Vitamin E- (which is less of a problem for vegans but still not easy) Nut Milks, Almonds, Vegetables.

  • Iron- It is a misconception that this is challenging I actually get more now then over, anyway Green veggies, Beans, Lentils, Grains

  • Selenium- Only an issue if you don't get a few servings of grains especially whole wheat, or eat one brazil nut, or 400 kiwis

  • Zinc- Beans, Grains, Nuts and Seeds. This is one most people don't expect.

    In short eat a few servings of grains, beans, fruit, green veg, nut milk, nuts, and seeds and you got it covered. Two servings of each daily will likely cover all your nutritional needs.

    Edit: I suck at formatting

    Ps. Also when doing your method I highly suggest doing the simple things on top of the x number of days a week you are vegan. By this I mean using plant milk instead of normal, and trying to have almost identical vegan products like chao instead of cheddar, and gardein and beyond beef instead of meats. The products I mentioned are best known for their phenomenal ability to replicate the original.

Sounds like this person lacks intrinsic factor. The only way to GET b12 with someone who has pernicious anemia is by INJECTIONS. Not rectal injections just has to be intramuscular.

These are all notes from my hematology class.
Total body content of b12 is 5 mg.
minimal daily requirement is 1-3 MICROGRAMS.
The avg daily diet in western countries supplies 5-30 ug, of which 1-5 is absorbed.

Meal frequency does not matter. If he wants to eat one or two meals a day, that is okay. What matters is that he is getting enough nutrients(vitamins, minerals, protein, calories) When the body does not get enough food, it slows down the metabolism. Go to the doctor ask for blood work for testosterone/thyroid/Vitamin D. At his age, either could be suboptimal for his health. Getting a sluggish thyroid optimized will make a huge difference in energy levels, same as testosterone. Optimally, you would want his testosterone over 700 ng/dl and his TSH(thyroid stimulating hormone) under <3. If you get his blood work and let me see it, i will tell you what i think. He needs to incorporate more animal protein into his diet. Amino acids found in food are essential for every single process in your body. Neurotransimitters like dopamine and serotonin(happy hormones) need amino acids to function properly. People underestimate the importance of dietary protein.



These are the two multivitamins i recommend because they contain the best, most bioavailable forms of vitamins and minerals. They are not expensive and are of really good quality. It is possible that your husband's multivitamin switched it's formulation to an inferior product. You can try these, but get that blood work done. It is very important, low testosterone and hypothyroidism will deteriorate his health as he ages. :

Hi there! I don't have insurance either at the moment and have had periods over they years with no insurance. I would start looking into a low carb diet like keto, this can help with your blood sugar and loose weight. I just started taking DCI for about 4 weeks, and got my first period in 10 months. I take two a day in the morning, along with coconut oil pills, vitamin D3 and magnesium. I recently purchased Ovasitol to try the mixture of both myo and d-chiro inositol. I've seen a lot of girls on here who use this brand. I've now been researching berberine which is supposed to have equivalent effects as metformin. Hope this helps!

u/anonymoosepanda · 5 pointsr/PCOS

Not op but I did a very similar regimene.

I discovered inositol when I went on a journey to attack my pcos holistically. No doctor ever mentioned it even though there are plenty of studies. Oddly.

I did not take folic acid. I eat lots of legumes which are naturally high in folate though.

It works very well with all my meds/supplements (I take metformin).

My drive is better than ever. I feel more womanly knowing I have a healthy reproductive system. I'm also not on hormonal bc. I used the FAM method. Which is just as effective (seriously look it up). The book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" explains it very well.

I used a cheaper treatment than Ovasitol or pregnitide. Bought a tub of myo and capsules of d chiro.
1 teaspoon 2,400 mg of this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0013OUKPC/ref=oh_aui_i_d_old_o1_img?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I’ve been on 50,000IU/weekly + prenatal with Vitamin D since cycle 6; 500 mg of Vitamin C since cycle 7; and a B-complex since cycle 10. Here are my stats!

Edit: 5DPO cramps are pretty common and don’t always mean your period is coming immediately. An LP that short would be something that would probably require a doctor’s intervention rather than OTC supplementation to address.

u/vectorlit · 5 pointsr/vegan

Regarding your question about helping the environment: http://thevegancalculator.com/ <-- Go here and put in "1 year" into the calculator. Just one year, you're saving almost half a million gallons of fresh water, 15 THOUSAND pounds of grain, 11 THOUSAND square feet of forest and 7 THOUSAND pounds of carbon dioxide (compared to a typical animal-including diet). The calculator is supported by sources. Just by changing a few minor things about your lifestyle, you can have an incredibly drastic impact on the world.

​

TL;DR regarding expense and difficulty - if you live in a very rural area in the USA, it can take some difficulty to find a good source of cheap bulk beans / lentils / vegetables / bulk (by weight) dried veggies. But they're sooooooo cheap; normally you can eat for $1-2 a day, plus B12 vitamin expenses ($5 a month).

​

Longer explanation regarding expensive/difficult: Expense is very low; I pay much less now for food than before going vegan. Difficulty may vary depending on where you live. I happen to live in Denver, and it's very easy for me to find pretty much any substitute/vegetable I want. If you cook your own meals, there's really nothing different about cooking vegan - just use vegetable oil/avocado oil instead of butter, and buy veggies instead of meat. That's about it. Just make sure you eat a lot of beans or lentils or tofu.

​

When I first became vegan, I was hit with the reality of vitamin/protein differences - I needed to purchase some vitamin supplements. Here's the list I have:

  • Vitamin B12 (vegan source) - $5 a month - https://www.amazon.com/Deva-Vegan-Vitamin-Dissolve-Lozenges/dp/B001GAOHTS
  • Protein Powder - $22 a month - https://www.amazon.com/Orgain-Organic-Protein-Chocolate-Packaging/dp/B00J074W94

    ​

    These two made a big difference in my life. About 3 months after going vegan I started having some troubles related to protein (I work out a lot and my body wasn't used to the lower intake). I try to hit about 90g of protein a day (I am a reasonably athletic 6' male). I think a lot of vegans downplay the issues involved with protein - it's the source of a TON of jokes in the vegan community - but the truth is a lot of vegans simply don't get enough protein. And then they fall back into eating meat because they didn't know better. Which is really pretty silly because it's incredibly easy to supplement if you can't get it in your diet.

    ​

    Other than what I've mentioned above, here's some things to consider (this list is HEAVILY biased towards a lazy, no-cook approach. If you have any cooking skill, just cook your own veggie meals, they're awesome, cheaper and fresher than anything listed below, but this is for the lazy days):

  • If you like cheese, vegan cheese substitutes cost about the same as dairy cheese
  • If you like milk, vegan milk (ANY type) is typically cheaper, better for you, and better for the environment than dairy milk
  • Most oils, spices, salts, flavorings - are already vegan. There's no real change needed here. Butter costs more than vegetable oil anyway.
  • Most BBQ sauce, buffalo sauce, spicy sauce, etc - all vegan generally.
  • Most chips and junk food is already vegan. Except for the "flavored" sour cream/cheese type chips.
  • If you like easy food/frozen food, Target sells a whole boatload of vegan microwave stuff (Gardein and others). "Chicken" nuggets, Fried "fish" sticks, "Chicken" wings, etc. Even Ben & Jerry's has a bunch of dairy-free vegan ice cream.
  • Speaking of dessert, vegan desserts are cheaper and easier to make (and safer!! you can lick the spoon - no eggs!). And they taste way better.
  • If you like burgers/hot dogs, check out Beyond the Meat. It's now cheaper than beef and is freaking amazing. They even sell it at Target now.
  • Most bread is already vegan (just check the label). Vegan bread is generally cheaper than non-vegan.
  • Most cereal is already vegan (just check the label).
  • Most restaurants in the US charge less for veggie-based items. Although it is VERY true that you'll have a much more restricted menu choice.
  • Fries are generally vegan, except for a few places (McDonalds, Buffalo Wild Wings, Smash Burger are the only ones around here that don't have vegan fries)

    ​

    Finally, there are a few things I'd like to point out in MY PERSONAL OPINION that might turn you "off" of vegan foods if you try them off the bat (a lot of people buy terrible choices and then say "vegan alternatives are bad". No, they are just poor choices lol)

  • Avoid buying Daiya products if you want a realistic cheese/dairy alternative. They are the lowest common denominator. They are readily available everywhere for cheap, but they don't taste very good. Try to find Miyoko's or Follow Your Heart instead.
  • Some substitute items are coconut based, or cashew based, or oat based, or whatever-based. There is a reason that 50 alternatives exist. Some people like some, some people like others. You know how you go to the store, and there are 50 different BBQ sauces, and the ONE you like is sold out, and you're super bummed? Yeah, same thing for vegan items - brand differences, tastes, and preferences exist - just because it's vegan doesn't mean it's any different than other products. Too many people say "vegan food" when really that lump-category doesn't exist.

    ​

    The best advice I can give is to JUST TRY IT. Just go a few days making vegan food. You don't need to say "I'M GOING VEGAN", you don't need to have some public moment - you can just privately try it out. It's pretty fun!
u/forkingresponsibly · 5 pointsr/vegan

For B12, I pop one of these every few days. I've never heard of it being affected by alcohol/marijuana use. It might also do you some good to also take a vegan vitamin D supplement, since most people are deficient anyways.

The nausea is not likely to be related to any specific nutrient deficiencies (a B12 deficiency usually takes years to manifest in any noticeable symptoms), but it is very possible that since you're probably eating different foods now than you did as an omni your stomach hasn't quite adjusted yet.

I'd highly recommend this book as a guide for healthy long term vegan nutrition. It's full of reliable science and teaches you how to be healthy as a vegan as opposed to some resources that try to convince people that a vegan diet is a silver bullet for anything and everything.

At this point, your blood results will be more likely to reflect your previous diet than they are your new vegan diet, so anything you see next Tuesday don't go 'OMG veganism is making me anemic/deficient/etc' based on those results. Also if you do have any deficiencies there are vegan solutions for all of them, so feel free to come on back and ask for more advice :]

u/drinkonlyscotch · 5 pointsr/nutrition

A few thoughts:

  1. My first guess would be that you're not getting enough B12 – the one thing you inarguably need to take as a supplement as a vegan. I would recommend a spray. Take 2–3 sprays for a few days and see what happens. (A single spray will do once you're feeling better.) I would also recommend D3 if you're feeling lethargic.
  2. As someone who spent years losing weight, "1500–2000" sounds like a large range, 500 calories is the difference between losing a pound a week and maintaining...or maintaining and gaining a pound a week. I would recommend keeping a food log for a week. Write down what you ate, and include calories and macros. My Fitness Pal or LoseIt would make this easier.
  3. I would question whether a Pritkin-style vegan diet would get enough protein and fat without a few modifications. Are you eating lots of beans, lentils, tempeh, or tofu? Beans and lentils are my go-to, with so much protein and fiber (an uncommon combination). I love tofu, and it's an almost essential ingredient, but I prefer to stick with the whole legumes when possible. And yeah, I would try eating avocado on whole wheat as breakfast for a few days, or have a single handful of raw, unsalted cashews at some point each day.

I use the inositol powder here. It's about 1/10th the sweetness of sugar (being a sugar alcohol), so it isn't nasty at all. I put it in my coffee in the morning.

As far as effects go, I have begun having a regular "spotting" every month. After I went from BCP to IUD, my periods disappeared. I seem to feel a little better.

I'm going to harp on you now about your diet. I'm 36, highly, highly active (I work in a professional kitchen, hobbies include rock climbing, trail running, and mountaineering) and have been diagnosed pre-diabetic. "Pre" diabetic is just fancy talk from the doc for, "you have Type 2 diabetes, but I need to spend my time with people whose limbs are rotting off." Getting your diet together is going to be the single most important thing you can do, and I promise (PROMISE!) you'll feel so much better when you do. Eat at regular intervals, avoid simple carbs. That will help you avoid hypoglycemia, which it sounds like you are doing. For insulin resistant people with high activity levels, reactive hypoglycemia is a Thing.

You say you get very thirsty, have to pee a lot, and you are hungry and hangry often. Please get checked for diabetes. It's Serious Shit. Inositol alone isn't going to control it, you have to (HAVE TO) clean up your diet, and some folks will have to have other pharmacological interventions. Personally, I'm just staving off the needles for as long as I can.

Good luck, this disease sucks ass.

Okay, here it is

HOWEVER, I would strongly urge you to consider tracking your nutrition with cronometer.com for a week honestly and seeing whether you actually have deficiencies before going straight to supplementation. Iron and calcium are abundant in a vegan diet (beans and nuts and seeds and leafy greens and tofu!), and too much iron is not a good thing if you supplement on top!

After tracking with cronometer, I've found that the only thing I really need is B12 (which I get a daily deva sublingual) and a vegan D3 for the wintertime.

Animal agriculture has also a huge environmental negative impact.

Taking a 6 cent B12 pill each day seems to be a more than reasonable price to pay to reduce the suffering and environmental damage one causes.

u/opinionrabbit · 4 pointsr/vegan

I understand. There are B12 lozenges that dissolve in the mouth. The B12 is absorbed mostly sublingual and not only in the intestines. Hope that helps.

I'm not saying you're going to have the same results, but here's my story.

I recently saw my nutritionist after 61 days of keto. I brought my bloodwork which had been taken the day before. Everything except my LDL cholesterol was fantastic. I mean perfect. Great kidney function, great liver function. Really good HDL. My LDL was 163, but I've always had elevated cholesterol (even when I was a vegetarian).

Now - I work out 45 - 60 mins a day, 4 days a week so part of this might be from just plain good livin', but I've lost a solid ten pounds during my time with keto. I had stalled out (I've lost about 60 lbs in the past 2 years), and keto was the ticket to get things going again. I'm getting close to my goal weight, so 10 lbs of weight loss in 2 months is a really big deal for me.

I've had exactly one day where I ate more than about 50 grams of carbs. Every other day of the past 60-ish has been pure keto. I have not suffered from the dreaded hangover. Some pointers:

  • ElectroMix is your best friend. Drink that with 25 oz of water when you get up in the morning, every single morning.

  • Shoot for 125 oz of water per day. Minimum. MIN. I. MUM.

  • Take a b-complex vitamin and a few potassium pills in addition to the ElectroMix in the morning.

  • At night, right before bed, take a calcium/magnesium pill. Don't take the magnesium in the morning or with food or it'll clean you out. This is the dreaded "keto fart effect".

  • An avocado a day keeps the cravings away. Eat one after lunch / before dinner. Perfect snack. A lil' salt and pepper and you're good to go.

  • Add cheese to everything. Making eggs? Add cheese. HEY - tuna salad? Throw some cheese on that bitch. Eating your avocado? Add that cheese, son! Cheese is your god now.

  • If you're in the good ole U-S-of-A, remember that you're usually looking at total carb counts on labels, not net carbs. Keto is concerned with net carbs.

  • Need a boost? Try Spark Energy from Advocare. It has some carbs, but not the sugar and other stuff that's really bad for you. I cut a few carbs from my day to make room for this when I have a really hard workout. Yes it's a bit pricey.

  • Miss your macros for a day? Don't sweat it. Try and stay close, but don't freak out if you're missing your macro by a gram or ten.

  • A month or two of keto won't kill you no matter what your nutritionist/mother/priest/parole officer might tell you. Just get started and you'll see the difference pretty quickly.

    Anyway - just my story. YMMV.

    Good luck!

I order my groceries through FreshDirect so technically I get 90% of my stuff online :).

That being said...the stuff I get outside of that site are:

  1. Japanese Mayo to make the spicy mayo that you get at sushi restaurants (just mix in Siracha).

  2. Emergen-C Electro Mix for my electrolytes kick.

  3. Erythritol cause....sugar.

  4. Stevia for a different sweetener used in mostly drinks/liquids where it's more difficult to dissolve the Erythritol.

  5. [Liquid Smoke] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0005Z8NCM/ref=oh_details_o08_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

u/Otto-Didact · 4 pointsr/Supplements

Morton's Lite Salt is straight-up the cheapest, though least tasty way to get both sodium AND potassium, and you probably need both. For palatability you can add Mio or Stur or a similar flavor enhancer.

Electro-Mix is an excellent option if you need potassium in particular. It's reasonably tasty for a no-sugar option. (I strongly recommend staying away from sugary things like gatorade and powerade, as advised by Chase.)

Another option is LyteShow, though it is a much pricier option than the other two. Na/K balance is pretty good though, and it is a good option if you just want to be able to add "x drops to x amount of water" without too much thinking.

I would look into a magnesium supplement as well--malate, taurate, citrate.



u/RealNotFake · 4 pointsr/Fitness

I've been taking vitamin D for a couple months now and there has been literally zero difference in any aspect of my health/mood/fitness. I'm not sure if I should keep taking it just for the heck of it or if it's a waste of money? I work a desk job and don't get much sun most days except on the weekend so I thought it might be good to take, but now I'm questioning if I really need it. For reference, I'm taking one of these daily.

Like others I take the garden of Life prenatal. It's vegetarian, but that's not why I got it as I am definitely a meat eater. I looked for folate instead of folic acid as well. They suggest three a day and with you mentioning issues with absorbing them this might help by taking one, three times daily.

While I did not notice anything drastic with Vitamin D supplementation, it's definitely one to look out for overall health. People are also often deficient in vitamins K and B12 - so make sure you get those. Spinach and leafy greens are amazing for Vit K and most hard to get micronutrients. In terms of Vitamin D, this helped me raise my blood D3 levels from deficient to normal in about 3 months of daily use.

u/Ludakrit · 4 pointsr/MGTOW

Try taking 5000 IU of vitamin D daily. It's like 15 bucks for 360 pills.

u/before-the-fall · 4 pointsr/vegan

Hey there, awesome!!

I have some spirulina powder that I occasionally put in a smoothie or something, but I don't use it that often.

I have some advice that I wrote up for a guy asking for tips on being vegan yesterday, hope it's ok if I copy and paste:






---

Some of my tips:

  1. Spend as much time in vegan online communities as you can. You learn a lot about nutrition, how to handle questions from non-vegans, tips on cooking, humor, commiseration, and other very important things. I prefer this very reddit sub r/vegan, but some people join facebook groups as well. Check out facebook or meetup.com to find other vegans in your area. I dig the facebook group ‘what broke vegans eat’ for meal ideas on the cheap.



  2. Use cronometer.com- it's a free website that lets you track your food and it shows you how much of each macro and micronutrient you're getting. It's based on your height and weight, it calculates your RDI (recommended dietary intake) from that, and most foods are pre-loaded with nutrition info, though you can enter new ones that aren't found- you just need the nutrition facts section from the box. It really helps to know what your RDI are, even if you don't feel like using cronometer, though I suggest using it for the first 4 weeks of being vegan- honestly, lots of new vegans simply don't eat enough calories. I still use it, have been off and on since being vegan, almost 12 months ago.



  3. Along the same line, if you don't really want to use cronometer, at least look up your RDI here. It helps to know your targets for calories, protein, etc. It is also a helpful aid when non-vegans give you shit about protein, you can ask them, "How much protein do you need in a day, in grams?" They won't have a clue most of the time.



  4. One last nutrition tip: You'll probably want to start taking a B12 vitamin. There are tons of vegan B12 vitamins on the market, in pills, sprays, etc. It's the one nutrient that doctors agree on is not available on a vegan plant-based diet (although it’s actually from bacteria, and lots of livestock are given B12 shots anyway). I started off with one I got at Whole Foods, by Garden of Life which is a mouth spray and I also bought a D3 one while I was there because I had read somewhere that it was a good idea. They last a long time, I still have them. But I recently decided that I didn’t need to prove that I needed very few supplements just because I was vegan (which is true), but I don’t always eat a perfectly balanced meal 3 times a day, so I grabbed a vegan multivitamin and take that now.



  5. Recommended reading: The China Study by Dr. Colin Campbell, How Not to Die by Dr. Michael Greger, Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer.



  6. Recommended viewing: Dr. Michael Greger's Nutritionfacts.org videos, especially this one. This one is a long one, but extremely worth it and a good preview of what you’ll learn when you read his book, How Not to Die. But his nonprofit website has tons of amazing videos on youtube. There is a short version of the first one I linked but I can’t find it right now. Anyone want to help me out? Dr. Melanie Joy's video on the psychology of eating meat. This one in particular will make you feel a lot better about how you’ve been able to think you’re a good, compassionate person and still eat meat. Seriously, it’s 14 minutes, give it a watch! Good documentaries: Cowspiracy (on Netflix- environmental impact of eating meat), Veducated and Forks Over Knives (both on Netflix- health aspects of veganism), and most people suggest Earthlings for the ethical/moral aspects. I… would only recommend this when you’re craving meat. I also highly recommend this Gary Yourofsky vid though some vegans find his attitude distasteful and off-putting. Hell, I think it’s an excellent video.



  7. You might want to look into joining the Veganuary campaign, it's going on right now and has access to lots of helpful info/resources, as well as daily emails of support if you want them. Another helpful website is ChooseVeg.com as they have tips, recipes, free guides, meal plans, etc.



  8. You will possibly experience some extra gas during the first two weeks of eating more fiber and beans, but that’ll ameliorate itself soon as your gut flora change. Also, you will probably crave cheese more than anything else. Some good vegan cheeses: Daiya Cheezy Mac which I get at Kroger in the ‘health food’ section, Follow Your Heart Mozzarella shreds, and Chao slices by Field Roast (both of which I get at Whole Foods or the local co-op. Beware that ‘Go Veggie’ is apparently not really a vegan cheese.



  9. Get yourself a pinterest account if you wish to find lots of awesome vegan recipes, but if you don’t feel like searching through a ton, I recommend the following websites: Minimalist Baker , Reddit r/VeganFood , r/VeganFoodPorn, r/ShittyVeganFoodPorn, It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken , Where You Get Your Protein , and The Edgy Veg .



  10. Check out Happy Cow to find vegan restaurants in different cities. There’s also an app. And if you want to order, you can easily get vegan food at pizza places , taco bell , and other fast food restaurant chains.

I've used nature's bounty version of liquid b complex on amazon which didn't do a lot, (and contained cyanocobalamin which may be good to avoid) then I tried jarrows lozenges (sublingual tabs) which worked pretty good, then I saw Jarrows even stronger 5000mcg version of it which works extremely well. It gives me energy and even stimulates appetite which I used to get when I would get b12 injections. They are delicious too. No shortage of reviews on amazon either.

I think that a lot of people swallow lozenges like they are capsules. They are meant to be held under your tongue for optimal absorption. This may be obvious to most people in the nootropics community, but not everyone which is why I mention it.

Fucking lowlives. Sorry your mom got scammed. These are just general supplements that won't really do anything compared to a healthy diet. I wouldn't recommend buying them all. Maybe a multivitamin and fish oil, or a b-vitamin if she doesn't eat meat. Otherwise, they're likely a waste of money.

Here are some supplements I've taken that look like basically the same thing, though I don't see Amway's nutritional facts (with the list of ingredients) so I just have to go by the marketing nonsense on their site to guess at what all is in each.

Also, /r/supplements is great for questions like this.

  1. just looks like a multivitamin
  2. a superfood powder
  3. cal-mag + d
  4. fish oil
  5. digestive enzyme
  6. b vitamins
  7. vitamin c complex

  9. green tea with coenzyme q10. not sure about a supplement for that

u/minerva_qw · 3 pointsr/vegan

Sounds like you need some more meals in your repetoire. What did you eat before?

While I'm waiting for your response, here are some of my favorite easy dishes. Some of them lend themselves to cooking in bulk. I find it very convenient to make large batches and then freeze leftovers in individual portions so I can just grab and reheat them.

  • Oatmeal: Follow the directions on the package, flavor with jam, cinnamon and sugar, maple syrup, frozen fruit, peanut butter, or whatever else you like.

  • Tofu scramble: tofu crumbled up around in a pan with onions, garlic, and the veggies of your choice.

  • Microwaved potato or sweet potato: wash, poke holes in it with a fork, microwave on high for 5 minutes and then turn over and repeat until soft

  • Pasta salad: Cooked pasta with tomato, onion and cucumber, salt, pepper and a dressing of olive oil and lemon juice.

  • One pot lentil dish: Sautee onions and garlic in a pot (add other veggies too if you like). stir in one cup lentils and one cup rice, add 4 cups liquid (vegetable stock or water) bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, taste and season as needed.

  • Black bean tacos: Sautee onions and garlic in a pot until tender. Add canned black beans with liquid. Simmer until creamy, flavor with salt, pepper, and lime juice to taste. Serve on tortillas with toppings of your choice (I like sauteed squash, spinach and hot sauce).

  • Peanut noodles: Cook some rice noodles. Make a peanut sauce with peanut butter, sesame oil, salt, and lime juice. Throw in some tofu and green onions if you like, serve with sriracha.

  • Pizza: Order pizza without cheese. Add avocado and hot sauce. Or hummus. Yum!

  • Roasted eggplant sandwiches: Preheat oven to 400 F. Wash an eggplant, brush with olive oil, and wrap in foil. Bake the eggplant until the center collapses. Scoop out the insides (carefully, it's hot), season with salt and pepper, and serve on a nice bread with some greens.

  • Creamy soups: I do this with all kinds of veggies, but the basic template is to sautee onions, garlic and my veggie of choice (I've used celery, mushrooms, leeks, broccoli, kale). Once they're tender, add clean quartered potatoes, cover with liquid (vegetable broth or water with bouillon cubes), bring to a boil, then simmer 20 minutes or so. Blend with an immersion blender or food processor, season to taste.

    The recipes above are very brief overviews, I can go into more detail on any of them if you're interested. And if you'll mention what your previous favorite meals are, maybe we can suggest similar recipes. If eating out is a problem, I can make some suggestions there too.

    If you don't have one already, get a vegan B12 supplement. It's essential. This is my favorite brand.
u/TheSn00zer · 3 pointsr/vegetarian

Eggs, yogurt, and milk have B12.

There are also B12 suppliments for vegans/vegetarians who don't eat those things.

u/rundmcc · 3 pointsr/vegan

I take one Deva sublingual B12 every month. My B12 was at the top of the normal range when I got my blood tested this year.

u/jibanes · 3 pointsr/vegan
u/tofu_schmo · 3 pointsr/DebateAVegan

No, I meant what I quoted earlier that you are ignoring. What you just posted was in your opinion piece (says so in the URL) that has incorrect information. For one example:

> A vegan diet may lack vitamin B12, found only in animal foods

Here is a b12 supplement that is also vegan:
https://www.amazon.com/Deva-Vegan-Vitamin-Dissolve-Lozenges/dp/B001GAOHTS?th=1

So clearly it is not only in animal foods. Again, I have no reason to trust that website whatsoever, and neither do you, if you care about facts and truth.

Again, try harder. If you make claims cite them from actual scientific sources. Preferably ones that you've actually read, so I don't have to explain to you why they aren't saying what you think they are saying.

u/cfromthe8 · 3 pointsr/vegan

u/Nascent1 · 3 pointsr/vegetarian

Just going to tack this on in case anybody doesn't know. B12 deficiencies can be very serious. It can lead to permanent damage and is hard to diagnose since it causes a myriad of issues, especially psychological problems. You can go blind and even die from it.

Pretty much every vegan and vegetarian should be taking B12. I like these personally.

u/seaeweed · 3 pointsr/vegan

Here's the recommendations for B12 for a normal person.

> Eat two servings per day of foods fortified with at least 2 to 3.5 mcg of vitamin B12 each. You’ll need to eat these servings at least 4 hours apart to allow for optimal absorption.
Take a daily supplement providing 25 to 100 mcg of vitamin B12
Take a supplement providing 1,000 mcg of vitamin B12 twice per week. This is for cyanocobalamin.

> For those who prefer to take methylcobalamin, it’s likely that 1,500 mcg per day would meet needs. But again, it’s difficult to make specific recommendations about this.

Some brands: Deva, Doctor's Best, Now Foods have good reviews.

Methyl and Cyano are different forms of B12 and both are fine. Vegans use both; for which one is better, I have no idea. They have slightly different dosage recommendations. BUT since you're low, I would take any of the brands I listed daily. Go again in 3 months to see if your levels have changed. I get B12 from a 1000mcg cyanocobalamin 3/week, and eat fortified foods like nutritional yeast and soy milk.

u/juiceguy · 3 pointsr/vegan

Deva B-12. 8 cents a day.

u/CrypticEntity · 3 pointsr/vegan

So for vitamins and supplements.

And then for eggs and brands it's pretty easy and skim through. Many brands say "contains eggs and milk" So, you can skim through and read what each has.

Some people take a shot of b12 but, many foods such as cereal and non dairy milks are fortified too!

You can easily find vegan cookies such as Oreos and others. It really depends on where you are located as well.

I would drink daily soy milk to keep up calcium but, you can eat greens which contain iron and calcium. Actually most multi Vitamins that are vegan contain iron. So, you won't need really a separate iron supplement.

Anything else just ask me! 😊

There are evolutionary reasons why children are averse to bitter foods, the most important of which is avoiding poisonous plants. sauce

As a person becomes an adult, they are supposed to lose this sensitivity. He might have retained the sensitivity due to biological or psychological phenomenae.

Whether this is biological or psychological is irrelevant, he must eat plants.

He can use miracle fruit tablets to counteract the effect that bitter flavors have on him.

He should also search out ketogenic recipes, such as those found in /r/keto, as these are healthy foods which are light on vegetables.

Try taking a Miracle Berry tablet before eating strawberries. It makes every strawberry taste sweet.

Heck, they make lemon juice taste like sweet lemonade. And you don't need a whole tablet, you can split one in half and share.

Get them from Amazon.

I found they worked really well with sour and sweet things like lemons, but not so well with savory foods. I was able to eat a whole lemon and it tasted like sweet lemonade.

When I started to follow protocols from /r/ketogains and /r/bodyweightfitness and /r/c25k and such, Keto did not pose an issue in terms of strength or energy; the problem was my electrolytes!

If you exercise very hard, you may experience what I did: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyponatremia

Basically, it feels like you are going to die. You throw up over and over and cannot stop, and it just feels like death is upon you lol. I drank more water thinking it was dehydration, but this actually exacerbated the effect by washing out even more electrolytes from my system.

If you are using Magnesium Citrate, NoSalt, and Chicken Broth to supplement your Magnesium, Potassium, and Sodium already (to prevent keto flu, for instance) then you are already good to go. If not, you will need something like this: Emergen-C Electro Mix ( http://www.amazon.com/Emergen-C-Electro-Mix-Lemon-Lime-30-count/dp/B002HWRY5S ) or just Powerade Zero (no sugar drinks of course!)

Do not underestimate the nightmare hat is hyponatremia when it comes to a fully Ketogenic diet (which is often slightly deficient in Sodium, Potassium, and/or Magnesium)!!!

u/Statici · 3 pointsr/Epilepsy

Well, the main side effects I have experienced are:

  • Minor auditory and visual hallucinations when weaning up (but they go away after a few weeks and aren't hard to deal with)

  • Dehydration: Get some gatorade mix. I use electro-mix drinking two-3 nalgenes with a packet or two in each one; if I don't, my lips get super parched, and my eczema breaks out by my elbows.

  • Frustration: Not anger. Initially (when weaning up) when I can't do something, it pulls on me in a weird way that's hard to explain. Kinda motivates me to do more though, which is actually nice.

    Those are the main three, I have some older posts and journals written about this, but if nothing else, the side effects disappear over time (minus the dehydration part, that is still with me two years in). It takes a long time for that (many months if not a year or two) but as of right now, I don't even really think about "being sober" anymore - this is my new sober. It will cause a little bit of a shift in personality, and my friends/family have commented on that before, but...such is life. We change as people over time anyways; this is just a thing to accept.

    Good luck! Hopefully it controls your seizures!

u/SugaFairy · 3 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

I’m the same way. You might be low on electrolytes. A nutritionist once told me that electrolytes help your body absorb the water. There’s a product called, “Electromix” that works really well. One box will last you months. Sugar free. You can get it on amazon:

I take extra electrolytes with on a ketogenic diet, I use Emergen-C or however it’s spelt. Little green packets, don’t taste great but always felt they worked well. Ordered them from amazon.

u/runhomequick · 3 pointsr/keto

Here is your solution.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002HWRY5S/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00

However, it doesn't contain sodium, so I throw in a few fast food salt packets.

u/entitydc · 3 pointsr/diabetes

Be careful if you're getting sick, and as others have said, make sure you always have insulin on board. The risk is increased because you're consistently producing ketones and imbalances in BS+ketones will lead to DKA. So you have to be even more vigilant about BS & insulin levels, but that turns out to be a lot easier when you're not eating carbs. :)

I've been doing keto pretty frequently for several months now, only taking a few days off over the course of it, and I feel amazing. I probably average 40-60 carbs a day and don't seem to exit keto at those levels.

/r/keto is a good resource as well. I've found that magnesium/potassium/sodium levels are really important for me, so I drink sugar-free Emergenc Electrolyte Mix frequently (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002HWRY5S/).

u/briangiles · 3 pointsr/ebola

Exactly! From the beginning of this I have said that it NEVER hurts to be ready for the worst. Where I live we get a lot of earth quakes and I am sure within my life we'll get a nasty one. Our building codes are VERY strict and I don't fear that my place will tip over, but the power grid in the US is VERY old and in need of repair badly.

We lost power out here two years ago over about 2 days and people were freaked out. What happens when something really bad happens and it's a week or two weeks with no power, no gas, the food starts dwindling and people are running around like crazy trying to get food to eat.

I'll have my MRE's not the best food in the world, but damn I won't starve to death. I think about prepping hardly ever and I need to get my self re situated and make sure I have everything back together again. I even made a list here for people who were new to prepping. My list is far from a complete list of things one would like to have, but it has the essentials.

The fact of the matter is that the subreddit for the most part seems to be under the illusion that if you don't live in West Africa you are 100% safe, which is a dangerous thought to have.

As /u/snorgsniffer said yesterday

>When confronted with dire circumstances beyond their control, humans predictably engage in one of the following behaviors:

> Denial
>
Delusion
> Distraction
>
Dismissal
> * Drugs / Drink (altered state of consciousness)

>All of those things result in still another "D"... delay
It's clear that both the victims and potential responders are engaging in "D behaviors" at this time.

>My point? It is almost impossible to change someone's mind using logical argument when their conclusion is an irrational, emotional one. They just burrow deeper into their chosen coping behavior when forced to look even more closely at the thing which frightened them so badly in the first place.

>Though not directly news related, I think understanding the psychological underpinnings of the outbreak is important when interpreting the nuts & bolts side of it. This sub seems to me like a good place to see it discussed. There are some really bright people here.

A lot of people are giving voice to their coping mechanisms of denial to make themselves feel better. I don't think their attitude will change until the numbers reach upwards of 50,000 and the people start fleeing and spreading this crap all over the globe.

u/NOREDDITNO · 3 pointsr/keto

I take this.

Fairly cheap, only requires one pill a day. The only downfall is its a little bit big, but not nearly as big as all the people are crying about in the reviews. :)

u/blahable · 3 pointsr/keto
  1. About .4 to .9g of protein per pound of lean body mass per day (Lean body mass = total body weight minus fat weight + (fat weight x .25)). So if you were 250lbs with 35% body fat, that would be 87 pounds of fat, so lean body mass would be 250 - 87 + (87x.25) or 184 pounds. So your protein intake would be between 74g (absolute minimum per day) and 165g, higher protein requirements are needed the more active you are especially if you do high-intensity or weight training exercise. If you need help figuring this out, then reply back with your height, weight, and BMI if you know it and i'll do it for you.

    As for carbs you should be aiming for 20-30g of netcarbs per day (a netcarb = Total carbs minus fiber carbs). So if you were eating 15g of fiber per day, your total carb intake would be 35 to 45g.

    The rest of your calories should come from fat. So if you were eating 1600 calories per day, 100g of protein, and 20g of carbs, that would leave 1120 calories for fat, or 124g of fat. To calculate this yourself: fat in grames = (total calories - (protein in grams + carbs in grams)x4) / 9. Using the above example numbers that would look like: (1600 - (100+20)x4)/9 --> (1600 - 480)/9 --> 124g of fat.

    If you need help figuring out how many calories you should be eating, provide the numbers requested above for calculating total protein intake and i'll help you figure that out as well.

  2. It really doesn't mater when you eat your carbs. Spread out throughout the day is probably ideal, but it's really not important. Eat when you're hungry and have time.

  3. It really depends on the type of exercise. If you're just doing low-intensity cardio (such as walking or biking or any other form of exercise under 60% of heart-rate max) then a post workout really isn't necessary.

  4. I'm not sure what the question is here honestly.

  5. As many or as few as you want. You shouldn't purposely eat multiple small meals. Eat when you're hungry and when you have time. Some people only eat one large meal per day (usually as their post-workout), others eat only two (usually skipping breakfast and/or only have fat-calories for breakfast such as MCT oil). Most people would probably be best starting off with three meals per day as they're used to and then transition to fewer (or more) meals depending on hunger levels throughout the day.

  6. You should be getting about 3-4 grams of total salt per day. This usually means either drinking salted water (1/2 teaspoon of salt twice a day) or a salty consume or bouillon broth (be sure these are MSG-free) or even a home-made bone broth with additional salt.

    I would also recommend a magnesium supplement, somewhere between 300-400mg per day. If you get diarrhea, then you should probably take two smaller doses of ~150mg twice daily (use a pill splitter) or switch to a slow-release version. If you still have issues even with two smaller doses, then reduce the dosage until you no longer do (usually after the first month of magnesium supplementation you'll probably need to reduce the amount to 200-300mg per day depending on how much you're getting from food). Also be sure to get a chelated form of magnesium (magnesium aspartate, magnesium citrate or magnesium citrimate). And when determining how much magnesium is actually in each dose, you will need to calculate it based on the RDI (the RDI is 400mg per day). So if the dose is 50% of the RDI then you would know that it's only 200mg per dose.

    If you decide to take a potassium supplement, make sure you aren't on any other medication that might interact negatively (such as blood pressure medicines). If you plan your low-carb diet well you can get enough potassium from food. If you do decide to use a supplement or a potassium-salt, be sure to stay below ~500mg per day and preferably spread throughout the day. Excess potassium, especially from quickly absorbed supplements, can cause serious health problems.

    The last two supplements i would recommend would be 1g-1.5g of Omega-3 fish oil capsules (or liquid) and ~2-5000 IU of vitamin D3 per day. There might be cheaper/better brands of these two supplements out there, but the two i linked are what i personally use.
u/rosepurplesoup · 3 pointsr/proED

These are the ones I was thinking of, but there are a few more brands on amazon as well.

u/danadou · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

VitaFusion. They taste pretty decent; I took them with my previous pregnancy too. Just know that the packs come with 90, but you're supposed to take 2/day, so the bottle doesn't last as long as you might initially think.

FWIW: Once I started the iron pills, my energy was back up and I felt a lot more like "me." So hopefully the same goes for you.

Also, I'm not a doctor, but my OB said that even with my low iron, it's almost certain baby was getting plenty. Baby gets first dibs, and we get the shaft. ;)

u/MajorMotoko · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

Concerning the prenatals, I was vomiting 2-3 times a day and nauseated morning til night with the Target prenatals I was taking. My OBGYN said the prenatals might be exacerbating the morning sickness.

I switched to twice-a-day Vitafusion gummy ones (no iron and bonus of DHA) and it immediately cut the vomiting down to once every couple of days. It's awesome! I'm still quite nauseated some days but I'm able to make trips to the grocery store now without pulling over to vomit or heaving in the bread aisle :)

I've been told every home remedy under the sun and considered punching the next sucker that said ginger was the "secret". Everyone is different and if you have extreme morning sickness, you might just have to wait it out. My weeks 5-9 were particularly hellish but I finally stopped losing weight last week. Good luck, it's almost guaranteed to get better soon :)

u/BlackWinging · 3 pointsr/Supplements

K1 isn't useless, but K2 is the more desirable form for bone/cardiovascular health. Use the K1 but if you can buy a product with K2 next, this seems to be one of the better Vit. K supplements out there as it has 3 forms in efficacious doses.

u/EpilepticDogs · 3 pointsr/vegan

Honestly, once you start reading you'll see that that most sources nearly already recommend a vegan diet whether they realize it or not. There's a high emphasis on whole foods and getting plenty of fiber.

Since you are new to veganism, I would recommend this book: The Everything Vegan Pregnancy. I only skimmed it because I've been vegan for a few years and a lot of the information was redundant to me, but it should be helpful if you're currently transitioning.

Make sure to get you B-12, iron, folate, and vegan omega DHA-EPA. For prenatals I alternated between Vitamin Code and Dr. Furhman. There are quite a few vegan omegas. I didn't take folic acid, but I made sure to track that I was getting my folate naturally through cron-o-meter. Make sure to keep track of your food iron intake. My levels were great pre-pregnancy, but I became mildly anemic by my third trimester (this is common for all pregnant women, not just vegan ones). When you're eating iron-rich food make sure it's with vitamin c and avoid caffeine for at least an hour for best absorption. In hindsight I would have kept better track of this.

Diet wise, just try to eat a lot of whole foods. I generally started my day with some super easy oatmeal or a smoothie. I ate tons of dark leafy greens, beans, veggies, and fresh fruit. They recommend that pregnant women get at least 60-70 grams of protein, so consider purchasing some vegan yogurt and drink plant milks if you find you're not hitting your requirements from other food alone. I'll usually have some silk soy yogurts on hand when I haven't been paying too much attention to my intake.

u/charcuterie_bored · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

These Raw Prenatals are considered to be some of the best on the market. They are small because you are supposed to take three spread throughout the day which makes them easier to swallow and easier on your tummy.

u/KiddoTwo · 3 pointsr/TryingForABaby

I think what makes a good vitamin is the one you can keep down that won't make you puke! ha!

Before my first pregnancy, I took Folate and Vitamin D. Once I got pregnant, I wanted prenatals from a good source, so I paid a premium, I really like these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005JAT3TU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s01?ie=UTF8&th=1

I took prenatals through breastfeeding as well (it was recommended), so basically haven't stopped taking them as I'm TTC for #2 now.

You can increase the amount of iron you get through diet in a number of ways, by eating iron and Vitamin C rich foods together, avoiding oxalate-rich foods (Dark leafy greens are very healthy and contain some iron, but they also contain oxalate which can lower iron absorption. However, cooking them lowers the oxalate content, so if you're using things like spinach, collard greens, kale, etc., have them at a separate meal or cook them well), cooking in cast iron, or using a lucky iron fish.

> Anyone out there with healthy nutrient filled recipes that a teen would love?

Some recipe ideas are in the links, but:

  • Oatmeal (or muffins or granola made with oats) or iron-fortified breakfast cereal with orange juice, or melon fruit salad.
  • Pineapple black bean salsa (or made with white beans or chickpeas). The sweetness of the fruit may make the boringness of the beans a little better.
  • Dirty mashed potatoes (or other potato dishes with the skin included) with bell peppers or tomatoes.
  • Dark chocolate has relatively high iron, and it's usually easy to get teens to eat

    > and her vitamin D is low

    Vitamin D deficiency is surprisingly common (among vegans and non-vegans), especially since so many people spend so much time indoors nowadays. Luckily, there are Vitamin D fortified foods like plant milks, and vegan Vitamin D supplements (even Vitamin D3, the form which may be absorbed better). After taking a higher dose for a few weeks, she should get another blood test to see if it's been effective.

u/veggiegarden · 3 pointsr/vegan

The one that I use is 8000% and it is recommended to spray daily. One of the reason's it is so high is because our bodies suck at absorbing B-12 from any source. https://www.amazon.com/Garden-Life-B12-Vitamin-Metabolism/dp/B00K5NEPJY

The 50,000% one is probably a weekly dose. I think next time I buy one I will probably do a weekly one since it's more convenient.

Even if your body absorbs more than 100% that it needs, scientific studies have not found any upper limits for B-12 or any negative effects of getting too much.

I take L-Theanine daily. And I regularly consume kava. How can I help?

Here's some info.
L-Theanine is great for managing anxiety. I take it every morning with a cup of coffee. Gives me great focus all day. I also take it at night with Ashwagahnda (another herbal supplement). Amazing sleep from this combo. I recommend SunTheanine (high quality and great price).

Kava can be heavy on the liver so depends on how you're wanting to consume it. If you drink it in its traditional form this can be harmful longterm. It feels like Xanax, is toxic to the liver in large quantities, and can give a hangover the next day when drank recreationally. But if in micro doses in pill form you're good to supplement with it at night to aid sleep.

Let me know how else I can help.

I've been practicing martial arts for 10+ years and for the past 3 years I've been vegan (for a variety of reasons). I can easily say that I've never been so powerful, lucid, energetic and fit as I am now. I do not really count calories but I am very careful about how much salt and oil I consume; usually as little as possible, although I do swig on some pickle juice when I feel like I'm a bit sodium deficient. I take a fantastic B12 supplement about once per week (https://www.amazon.com/Jarrow-Formulas-Methylcobalamin-Supports-Lozenges/dp/B0013OQGO6/ref=pd_bxgy_121_img_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=FADXRH9112DBKT73QATT) and consistently out-perform almost every single other practitioner in the gym, regardless of rank.

I'm a meat eater, and had a b12 deficiency a few years ago (neurological issues start between 300-400, and I was at 300). I did a sublinqual supplement and am now fine.

Look for liquids or sublinguals. I took https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0013OQGO6/ (which is vegan). It is the methylated version for those that may need it, and the sublinqual absorption helps if you are low in intrinsic factor (the stuff in your stomach that digests b12).

u/hello_cello · 2 pointsr/PCOS

I do have excess hair on my chest and abdomen, but since it's only been a couple weeks, the jury is still out on whether that will change. My guess is that if it is helping lower my free T, then it'll help prevent more hair, but I'm skeptical to think it would reduce body hair altogether.

I'm using the Jarrow formula from Amazon. Just FYI - it does have a mild sweet taste, so it's best mixed with juice, tea, or another beverage. I do a 1/2 tsp morning and night - I read elsewhere that taking too much at once can cause stomach/GI upset, so I elect to split my dosage to be on the safe side since I'm usually pretty sensitive. Fortunately I haven't had any issues with it yet. I'm sure after starting you could ramp up to 4 grams (typical dose) if needed.

u/FoxesBadgers · 2 pointsr/OCD

Fellow vegan here (yay!), I have a lot of sympathy for you in this situation because my OCD gave me obsessive thoughts that I was going to harm animals too. I think it's a theme in OCD that's going to become commoner as more and more of us try out being veggie, though right now it's not very much recognized.

This is most likely just a regular episode of Harm OCD. If you're having feelings of anger and frustration, that's not unusual, OCD can be seriously frustrating.

If CBT and meds haven't worked for you so far, please don't give up. There are a LOT more options than just the basic antidepressants and one-size-fits-all CBT. Most of the research shows that when someone's CBT doesn't work the first time, it's more likely to be because the CBT was done wrongly by the therapist, because it wasn't done for long enough (average recovery time for severe OCD isn't 12 weeks, remember, it's actually 6 -18 months, because the brain heals more slowly), or because the patient had difficult stuff going on in their life that made it harder. It doesn't mean CBT and exposure therapy will never work for you. It technically works for pretty much everyone, the only difficulty is that it's emotionally hard to do. My first try at CBT was completely useless too, but it's working amazingly now that I've discovered I had an underlying health condition and I work with an OCD specialist. So please try seeking help again, preferably with somewhere that specializes in OCD ( this NY centre can see you by Skype and they're amazing, if you can break into your savings and afford it, http://www.cognitivebehavioralcenter.com/ ).

Also, there are a lot more meds you can try than just the standard SSRIs. I keep a folder of the newest scientific research on this, and there are new categories of drugs being tried for OCD that seem to be working better than the old ones that affect serotonin. There are also accounts of OCD sufferers who've had success re-trying the basic SSRIs but adding in another drug (like an antipsychotic or an NMDA-agonist) on top. I completely understand your wanting to avoid the meds if you feel they're dong nothing, but I guess I'm just saying: 'not all meds are the same'. There are old-fashioned meds that don't work that well, and there are newer ones that are sowing promise if you're willing to experiment with a psychiatrist.

One thing I would point out is that sometimes us vegan folks have to take extra care over certain brain nutrients, because if we get low in them, they can make our OCD worse, and they're sometimes found in plants that we tend not to eat much of (like, am I going to eat twenty brazil nuts a day to get extra selenium? No, I am not!). There's some evidence showing that the meds for OCD can work better if you take them with supplements: http://www.news-medical.net/news/20160426/Nutritional-supplements-can-enhance-effectiveness-of-antidepressants.asp

Do check that you're getting enough B12, zinc, magnesium and omega-3s. My OCD improved a lot when I made sure I was getting these! They're available without prescription and can easily be got off amazon or ebay. Message me or ask for help around here (or the nootropics reddits) if you want to try them but you're unsure about which type to get(the omega-3s are best got from capsules derived from algae, for a vegan source).

One thing you can also try an alternative to standard meds is inositol ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/Jarrow-Inositol-Powder-227g-Vegan/dp/B0013OUKPC/ref=sr_1_2_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1485942385&sr=8-2&keywords=inositol ), which works similarly to an antidepressant but generally without the side-effects. It's similar to a b-vitamin, and generally a mild and harmless substance. You can take 1 or 2 teaspoons stirred into a hot drink each morning, and many people with OCD find it helps. I

I had made myself for a long walk because I knew if I stopped moving I would just crawl into a corner and just break down.

I was still hypersensitive when I came back to my desk and took the 3 packets equaling 6 grams.

I can tell you when I take the inositols and follow Keto I have a much much greater handle on my mind.

But my anxiety is different for yours and everyone else as they are all unique cases.

You can get 180 - 2 gram packets for 78$, I used to buy bulk powder cans, but the packets are just so much easier to use and have available they are worth the cost to me.

Search the Jarrow reviews for Anxiety and you can read a lot of reviews about people using it for Anxiety, and what doses work for them.

u/boy_bye · 2 pointsr/PCOS

Hey there, I was just diagnosed a week ago but have suspected PCOS for quite some time. I've been taking inositol powder 4g every day for only three months and it's helped me with so many of my symptoms. My horrid acne is clearing up, my happy trail is basically gone, and instead of only getting a period every other cycle I'm now at a 32-35 day cycle. I've just started eating keto again since I quit last year so I'm excited to see the effects of the inositol paired with the diet and exercise.

    You can make home-made granola and granola bars with TONS of great stuff, then everything is mixed into one bar/bag. Get creative:

    I would take one of these (bone+multivitamin) morning and night (daily "dose" is four pills, so you would still only be taking half what they want you to) if you are worried about getting vitamins and minerals.

u/1happyohana · 2 pointsr/Supplements

Just go with Jarrow B-Right Works great for me.

u/dinkboi · 2 pointsr/PEDsR

Do you believe that the anabolic androgenic ratio rating (done in mice I know) could be a surrogate for non-AR mediated anabolism to AR mediated anabolism? You say that Test has equal effects through both mechanisms, which would be supported by this idea because it is 100:100.

Regarding androgen affinity of masteron you can see this full paper here.

You are correct that masteron has affinity for the androgen receptor, but interestingly it's androgenic rating is only 25-40, less than half that of testosterone. This could be suggestive that the majority of the effects are non-AR dependent. The hormone was originally intended for breast cancer patients, and I believe that it may mediate anabolic activity by acting as an antagonist at the estrogen receptor. By blocking receptor binding of estrogen, it may allow you to reap some of the anabolic effects (increased IGF-1, sodium retention) of estrogen without experiencing the femininization (sp?) properties.

Let me try to summarize the thoughts going around here, and see if I can suggest an option to address this.

  1. High SHBG may be good for uncoupling anabolic effects from androgenic ones in AAS
  2. AAS generally lower SHBG but have an overall anabolic effect
  3. Estrogen production/aromatase activity results in SHBG production^1
  4. Having androgen dominance in some tissues is good (tits, dick, brain [to a degree]) and bad in others (primarily hair).
  5. Estrogenic dominance may be good for anabolism (probably good for mitigating hairloss) and one way may be through elevated SHBG
  6. Estrogen mediated anabolism is likely most effective in insulin sensitive (low bodyfat) individuals
  7. Insulin, GH, IGF-1, androgens, and prolactin negatively regulate SHBG production
  8. So we see that the favorable anabolic products of estrogen reduce SHBG production. How then do we keep SHBG up, insulin sensitivity up, and favorable androgenic dominance in tissues where it matters.

    I am not sure I have the perfect answer, but here is how I plan to do it in my next cycle:

  9. Keep DHT levels slightly above normal levels systemically via Testosterone E (600mg/wk) + finastride (1mg inhibits 64% of DHT at scalp) I expect this to give me about as much DHT as my cruise dose (Yes I know its high) of 210mg/wk at which I don't notice any major hairloss on. The reason I plan to use a high dose of testosterone is because I believe that in combination with finastride it uncouples the androgenic (DHT) from it's anabolic effects to a degree. Maybe if the mouse studies were done on mice receiving AI + Finastride + Testosterone the anabolic:androgenic ratio might be more like 100:35, giving it a relatively more favorable anabolic to androgenic ratio than boldenone. Also if you look at the binding profile of testosterone from the paper I linked, I believe that it may have antagonistic effects at the progestagenic receptor, and I believe I am sensitive to progestrone activity.
  10. Keep Estrogen slightly elevated by using aromasin at sufficient doses to keep me slightly above range
  11. Use an anti-androgen at the scalp (RU58841)
  12. Use topical DHT cream at the nipple
  13. Include masteron E (300mg/wk) for extra nipple protection
  14. Include Bold Cyp (700mg/wk) because of it's relatively uncoupled anabolic to androgenic properties/ratio. Thought about using DHB instead, but in terms of it's grams/$ relative to bold cyp I am not sure the benefits of no 5-ar or aromatase activity would be worth it since boldenone already has very weak activity with aromatase and 5-ar. Additionally DHB and bold cyp share the same ratio, and despite bold cyp's reduced potency compared to DHB I could brew it at twice the concentration, so in the end I am pushing the same amount of oil.
  15. Include metformin to attempt to maintain insulin sensitivity on a modest caloric surplus
  16. Stick to /u/bznnnj 's recommended diet of 2:1 glucose to fructose ratio, high fiber, low fat (10-20%), appropriate protein (shooting for 1g/lb despite the common knowledge that only .85 is needed as I believe that improved nutrient partitioning and protein synthesis in enhanced users may necessitate increased protein, and even if that isn't the case the thermal effect of protein may improve my metabolism to keep the gains even leaner). This should hopefully keep that liver full and pumping insulin. Fat sources will be mainly animal derived (beef and eggs) with some almonds thrown in, veggies will be spinach and brocccoli (uncooked to maximize sulrophane content), fruits will be kiwis and oranges, carbs will be sweet potato (and basmati rice if this ends up being too much fiber [I currently tolerate around 50gs]). Thoughts behind this being that we want stable insulin and glucose and as such should stick to carb sources with low glycemic index/load and /u/bznnnj has already discussed the advantages of increased fructose. Animal fats are selected for fat soluble vitamins. Veggies, Fruits, and Starches are selected for good micronutrient ratios (high potassium low sodium) getting enough calcium iron and unsaturated fats etc.
  17. I am staying away from anything that has affinity for the progesterone receptor as I am not sure how it plays into all the previously mentioned mechanisms, and I have had poor reactions to them in the past.

    I thought I would include supplement choices since I am writing a book here anyways:

  18. nightime - melatonin , magnesium glycinate (2x docotors best), P5P (I have the MTHFR mutation so I take mainly active forms of B vitamins and usually above the RDA), Zinc, CoQ10, Garlic
  19. Morning - 10K IU Vit D (I have a vitamin D receptor mutation so I again go above the RDA), Vit K, B-complex, 2 xFish Oil, uridine
  20. In order to stabilize dopamine, because I believe I am susceptible to post-cycle depression due to increased dopamine sensitivity on cycle I: Don't partake in psychoactive substances on cycle (including coffee), and utilize the Mr. Happy Stack (crossovers from /r/nootropics will know this is Uridine + Fish oil + and Choline (get choline from my eggs)) and off cycle I use a mixture of microdosed and periodic full doses of LSD to improve my dopamine sensitivity (and to deepen spiritual connection), modafinil, and caffeine and L-theanine to help me with the androgenic comedown.

    I am on the fence about including HCG, because I was running it on a cruise for a while, but it was aggravating my pubertal gyno and when I went to get my bloodwork I found that I had above range prolactin and in range estrogen and test. I was only on AI + Test + 500IU HCG/wk administered E3D. I may include it just to improve lipid metabolism, and increase estrogenic tone, because boldenone seems to act similarly to masteron insofar as it has not well understood anti-androgen effects.

    Sorry for the manifesto.

That supplement would be fine.

It contains:

-Pyridoxal phosphate(active form of b6)
And
-Methylcobalamin(b12)

You may be able to find them all separately for less money.

Or the Jarrow B complex is commonly reccomend, and contains the B vitamins in the same form. You'd have to compare dosages though.

Hi there, I sense your hair is thinning due to a vitamin deficiency. I sense you should take a good quality vitamin B supplement, like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Jarrow-Formulas-B-right-Supports-Cardiovascular/dp/B0016003Z0/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1505639358&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=vitamin%2Bb%2Bsuper%2Bcomplex%2Bjarrow&th=1

I also sense your body needs more calcium and vitamin D. As for the job you applied for, I sense that Ali has had a lot of applicants and is narrowing down the list as quickly as he can. It doesn't look like you've been disqualified, but he also hasn't completed the task of narrowing down the applicant list. I sense that you'll most likely hear back from him in 1.5 weeks or less.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions :) Also, please share my link: http://clairvoyantreadingsforall.webnode.com/ thanks :-)

Ok, sure - I've listed a pretty typical day below, including supplements.

u/rubix_redux · 2 pointsr/reactiongifs

I don't know where you live, but I buy dried beans and rice and make tacos that are probably ~.20 cents each and be full AF. I buy dry soybeans and make milk at home. My grocery bill went down like crazy after I starting buying only vegan food.

Any diet can be as expensive/inexpensive as you want it to be. Also, I'm talking specifically about the vegan convenience foods in my last post. The grocery store is full of normally cheap food that happens to be vegan. Bread, grains, veggies, fruit...ect...

Poorer nations usually eat a vegetarian/plant-heavy diet due to the fact that meat/dairy is more resource heavy per calorie. If you look at traditional Ethiopian cuisine, you'll see what I mean.

As far as the nutrition, for those that are worried they can take a B12/Amino supplement which can be ordered via mail. Here is 90 weeks worth of B12 for $15. It comes down to if you want to take a supplement on its own, or pay more to get it from the animal's flesh.

There is plenty of iron/calcium in vegetables. This isn't an issue.

Look - I'm no nutritionist, but it seems like a strong hypothesis that if you eat a diet with the highest nutrient to calorie ratio, you're probably going to be in good shape. Most Americans don't eat enough fiber, but no one bats an eye at that.

I know this is anecdotal, but I know hundreds of vegans. None of them have diet-related health problems, are obese, or have deficiencies that I know of. I'm not saying that can't happen but I look at my meat eating family ravaged by health issues and I can't help but wonder. I've also never heard of anyone I know have a protein deficiency.

u/bwahhh · 2 pointsr/vegan

no not very expensive. usually <$10. The trick is to find some that are from a vegan source and don't contain gelatin. When you goto the grocery store look at their vitamin section. There is usually a small selection of vegetarian / organic vitamins. I get my local stores brand so I can't really recommend a specific vitamin. Amazon has [these.] (http://www.amazon.com/Deva-Vegan-Vitamins-Sublingual-Tablets/dp/B001GAOHTS/ref=pd_sbs_hpc_5)

Never tried them and maybe a tad expensive. Sometimes a multivitamin has a good vitamin B selection. Your doctor might be able to get you prescription vitamins as well. Depending on your insurance that might be a good deal.

u/Yofi · 2 pointsr/vegan

The way we make change with veganism is by taking our money away from people who exploit animals and by raising awareness, so if I have an accident, and if fixing it wouldn't take back the money or improve people's regard for veganism, I just forgive myself and let it go. If I dispose of the non-vegan thing instead of consuming it, it's mostly just because I feel icky about it.

I recently went vegan after being vegetarian for a few years. It was hard at first to think of what to eat, but the breakthrough that made me feel better about it was reminding myself that I can still eat whatever I'm craving in some form or another. I try to imagine exactly what I would want for dinner if I weren't even vegetarian/vegan and then I google "easy vegan ___." This has led to some great things like vegan eggs benedict (yum). You're working to help animals, so you've got to make it fun and treat yourself.

I also take a vegan multivitamin and B12 supplement so that I can eat whatever I feel like without worrying so much about whether I'm killing myself.

u/veganatheist · 2 pointsr/IAmA

As another raw foodist, let me give you guys another take on this. On a typical day, I'll start will a huge-ass smoothie (Kale, bananas, OJ, blueberries, wheat germ, water, filling a full 64oz Vitamix pitcher) that I will split up between breakfast and lunch. If I'm extra hungry, I'll eat some fruit here and there as well.

By dinner time, I'll be wanting a big salad (Big = 1 lb kale + 1 lb spinach + a large tomato + 1/2 avocado + a dressing made from tahini, garlic and lemon).

This may not seem like much, but have a look at the nutritional breakdown on Wolfram Alpha.

In the example above, I am getting 84 grams of protein, with good coverage in all the essential amino acids, sufficient Omega-3 and Omega-6 (in favorable proportions), huge amounts of most of my vitamins and minerals. My shortcomings here are vitamins D and B-12. I take a daily vegan multivitamin, a vegan D3 supplement and a B-12 supplement, just to make sure I'm not missing out on anything.

For exercise, I ride my bike an hour each way to work and back M-F. Between the food and the cycling, I stay in pretty good shape.

K2, I use a supplement, they're also cheap. I'd like to ferment my own natto, but it just isn't feasible atm. Also natto is an acquired taste that I'm fighting a losing battle on.

Most fortified milks have 25% Vitamin A, so you're good for a good chunk of your requirement there. If you ever do any genetic testing like 23andMe, or AncestryDNA you can look at your specific SNP for the conversion of beta carotene -> Vit A. I'm of irish descent and my conversion is 25% lower than normal. Just means I eat two sticks of carrots or like half a sweet potato instead of a quarter. No one has a completely malfunctioning enzyme, it just performs less than optimally in some, so just double up your beta carotene containing veggies and take a multi with Vit A or beta carotene in it.

u/floopaloop · 2 pointsr/WomensHealth

Your multi actually doesn't have enough B12. If you're vegan, you should be taking a supplement with 100 micrograms of B12 every single day. Yes, it will make your pee a bright color, that is normal and fine. There aren't any negative effects of getting too much B12, besides a small number of people getting acne from it.

If you're looking for a good vegan multivitamin, try Deva's.

For how long were you only taking a B12 vitamin once a month? If it was more than a year or so, you might have or be on your way to a deficiency.

It's not that hard to go vegetarian or pescatarian in my experience. I more or less switched to a vegan/pescatarian mix over three years ago, and my cravings are basically only ever for cheese.

You can also just take a daily vitamin for your other worry. I use these, which cost you $0.10 a day. It's just once a day which is easy. They smell awful though, and make your piss neon yellow for an hour or two, which is..interesting?

Etsy has really pretty jewelry! A few of my favorites I've seen lately (or ones I've purchased as gifts for friends/family) fave 1, fave 2, fave 3

You said she has a ton of scarves, does she have something more like a cowl? They seem to be super popular lately, and sometimes scarves just don't give you the warmth you want like a cowl does. Here's a cool lookin' one.

Does she have cuddl duds? I have like three pairs and they are the most amazing thing ever. I live in the midwest and pretty sure these are the reason I still have all my limbs after 30+ mins of waiting at bus stops. My favorite is this kind, the 'flexfit' cuz it has a v-neck and has that loop for your thumbs - this would something she'd probably like to wear for running too maybe? They have matching legging/pants version as well.

Some other generic go-to's would be a perfume set from Sephora. The kind that comes with like 10 mini vials and then a voucher for a free full size of whichever you want from the set. Pretty sweet since you don't have to wonder what scent she'd like and even if she already has a fave perfume this gives her a chance to maybe find a new favorite.

This is kind of random, but have you heard of those fruit tablet things that change your taste buds? They sell them here and they're only like $14, I'm giving some as gifts in a gift basket with lemons/limes/grapefruit which from the reviews say they're the most fun to try.

Does she have any TOMS? That's always a great gift. Even in the winter they have different kinds that are more durable rather than the typical slip on TOMS.

A nicer necklace would be great too. My bf got me one from Swarovski for our one year and it was like...the best gift I've ever received. Some of their stuff is kitschy (hello kitty necklaces) but they really have some amazing pendants like this, this, and this.

Does she like reading? A nook could be cool! Or kindle fire, whatever they have out now.

These would be awesome! I've been wanting something like this forever. They were also featured on Shark Tank so that's kind of cool.

How uh...weird is she? This mug looks hilarious. But a more normal & cool looking one would be this!

Looking for mittens and she likes cats? Here ya go!

The tablets, when dissolved on your tongue, make sour things taste sweet, so you can have a mini taste party. It's pretty cool and yummy, it makes a fresh lemon taste like sweet lemonade. Again, not very meaningful, and people will go "huh?" when they open the lemon, but once they try it it can be fun and something cool to experience. Supposedly the tablets are also pretty good for anyone that might need to keep away from sugar, because they can make things taste sweet without adding any sweetener.

We buy a bunch of these and cut up limes, lemons, oranges, and grapefruit, and buy tobasco sauce and vinegar. You take a miracle berry and rub it around your tongue until it dissolves; it inhibits the sour taste receptors and sour things taste sweet. You can literally take shots of vinegar. Makes grapefruit taste like candy. Pretty much always our most popular rush event.

u/Biblos_Geek · 2 pointsr/MonoHearing

I am buying nerve health supplements because I am recovering from an acoustic neuroma - (and with vitamins many doctors think they do nothing - so keep that in mind) Nervestra Nerve Health Support Supplement, Alpha Lipoic Acid Vegetable Caps, Methylcobalamin (Methyl B12), 1000 mcg, Lozenges and Centrum but I am not taking anything for the ear for hearing health maintenance.

Anyone want to recommend any vitamin/herbal supplements for hearing heath maintenance?

While I am aware of medical literature that says vitamin supplements do nothing - it never made sense to me why vitamins absorbed in foods are good but via pills is bad (if the pills were of good quality and contained the ingredients they contained).

u/bunnylebowski1 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I dont know if you take any vitamins or supplements, but these b-12's are awesome! They help greatly with energy and stress relief. They're very inexpensive, sublingual so they just dissolve in your mouth for faster results, they are the superior form of b12-the methyl form so they don't have to be broken down by your body.

Also, a good quality vitamin c taken daily would also help keep the energy up and stress at bay. I would suggest a liquid form, because a lot of people don't realize that when we take vitamins in pill form, we barely absorb any of it. Vitamin C crystals or powder can be added to any drink and it gets right into the bloodstream for quick absorption.

Your caffeine intake will probably go down quite a bit by adding these two natural alternatives. Plus, you'll be nourishing your immune, nervous, and endocrine system rather than depleting it.

Hope this helps!

I bought this stuff

I usually mix it with water flavoring stuff since the lemon-lime flavor isn't very strong. I dig it!

u/LavernicaDeLuca · 2 pointsr/keto

Even with broth and Powerade Zero, you may not be getting enough potassium and magnesium. Powerade Zero has piddly amounts of potassium (1% per serving) and I'm not even seeing magnesium on the nutrition label.

Get some lite salt (or half salt) and use it liberally. This will increase how much sodium and potassium you're getting. And try Electro Mix for more potassium and 30% of your daily magnesium. You can also eat nuts and/or take a supplement.

I went through this phase as well and what helped me was to eat COLD fats. Eat a salad slathered in fatty dressing, tuna salad smothered in mayo, shredded chicken dipped in ranch dressing, etc. It helped me a LOT, as did upping my magnesium and potassium.

And don't force fat down your throat. If all you can handle is lean meat, eat that. If you hit your protein goal and eat under your carb limit, you're good to go.

You may need more electrolytes. You're probably sweating a lot and plain water sometimes needs a boost!

Pick up some electrolyte packets. I like ElectoMix by EmergenC. I keep a couple in my purse and my yoga bag. All you need is a cup or bottle of water to mix the powder in and you're ready to go!

Nuun makes electrolyte tablets. They reforms latex their product a year or two ago and it tastes pretty good. Same with the ElectoMix, just mix it with water and you're set.

This bad boy! So the red/orange container is gelatin you can make into jello and the green one is gelatin that won't gel and you can put into your coffee. But what really helps me is using the red/orange container gelatin to make jello with Powerade Zero or I'll use water that's been mixed with Emergen-C Electro Mix and sugar-free syrup for flavor.

From my research stay away from Knox gelatin (yucky taste) and Sugarfree Jello (only has a minute quantity of actual gelatin).

When making jello with this gelatin use these instructions (taken from the first review in Amazon for this gelatin, but I modified it a little to make it keto-friendly):

"i start off by mixing 1 cup of COLD liquid with the 2 tablespoons of gelatin in the measuring cup.
keep mixing till all the gelatin has been mixed with the liquid, don't leave any chunks.
then let sit for 5 mins. This will bloom the gelatin.

After the 5 mins, dump the cup of liquid/gelatin into a dish, and then clean your measuring cup, then pour
another cup of liquid into your measuring cup. I then microwave this cup for 2 minutes (maybe another minute after i test it)
then take it out to measure the temperature. you want to try to get the liquid around 160F degrees. (should be pretty hot to the touch)

then i mix in the sweetner [I don't add any] to taste, then add the hot liquid to the cold, and mix it.
it should all be clear after you mix them together, and then i leave it sit on the counter for a few minutes,
then put it in the fridge. It takes a few hours to harden."

I eat it all, I try to make 2 tablespoons of gelatin by daily dose so I use half the liquid mentioned above so there is less jello to eat because even then there is still a lot of jello to eat!

Let me know if I'm not clear! I can type slower than I think!

I lift heavy and usually follow with about 30 minutes worth of tabata-style cardio and treadmill and on my first round of keto, I felt HORRIBLE when I finished for the first week. This time around, I know better.

Well this thread is a shitshow, but my long ride snacks usually consist of: cheese. All the cheese. Cheese crisps. Nuts, nuts, and more nuts. Nut butter packets. Jerky/sausage/cured meats. Sometimes low-carb protein bars. Seed crackers (Trader Joe's). If it's cold enough outside for me to transport it without it getting spoiled, I love putting Kerrygold butter on just about anything I'm eating.

If I feel low on electrolytes I like this stuff, and sometimes I'll mix in some Lite Salt as well. I take magnesium glycinate at night and I salt the crap out of my food so I don't find that I typically need to consume a ton of extra electrolytes on long rides.

I haven't tried MCT oil powder mixed into water yet, but supposedly it's awesome for fueling endurance rides.

It's not quite as simple as a multivitamin alone, but it's a good start. A good but cheap one would be these: https://www.amazon.com/Kirkland-Signature-Vitamins-Minerals-500-Count/dp/B002RL8FCU/ref=sr_1_2_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1468940301&sr=8-2&keywords=kirkland+signature+multivitamin

I'd say take 1/3 - 1/2 of a pill per day with your Joylent, and add a small pinch of salt to each meal. You may still be a little under on electrolytes, but instead of worrying about it initially, see if you experience signs of a deficiency (or ideally get bloodwork done before starting on the diet and a month or two afterwards).

u/SparklingLimeade · 2 pointsr/soylent

I was hoping someone with better ideas and more relevant information would show up but that hasn't happened so here I go.

The product you linked is a powdered multivitamin supplement for athletes. It's probably pretty good but it's also not very cost effective. If you do any supplementation you'll want to use cheaper multivitamin pills.

Because protein powder isn't an option anything you do will look as much like a dietary plan as it will anything else. Is your goal convenience and health? How much time to you spend shopping and cooking already? With some research you could probably work out a simple meal plan that's reasonably healthy and easy to make. It all depends on what foods are available and how much nutritional data you can put together to make a balanced diet.

The easiest thing to do will probably be to take a good multivitamin and find a convenient food that can be eaten most of the time while using other food to fill in the nutritional gaps. Oatmeal or some other porridge. Beans and rice. I feel very unhelpful offering this advice but it's my best idea from what you've told me.

u/starstough · 2 pointsr/Hypothyroidism

This is what I take every day:

  • Zinc

  • Iron

  • B-complex

  • Hyperbiotics Probiotics

  • Magnesium citrate

  • Selenium (This is to lower my antibodies, which were nearly 600 at one point, and are down to under 150 now after several months on Selenium. I will stop taking selenium when the bottle runs out which I think will have been 6 months.)

  • Omega fatty acids

  • D3 5000iu

    As far as I know, based on the research that I did on these, this brand and these formulations are easiest to absorb.

    I also take 2.25 grain Nature Throid, at night, 4 hours after my dinner.

    In the past two weeks I've actually felt better than I have in years. I notice right away if I forget to take my vitamins or if I run out of one of them and miss just one of all those, it definitely is noticeable as well. I added magnesium in the past week and it has been incredibly encouraging how much more energy I've had on magnesium. But whatever you do, DO NOT get magnesium powder. It is absolutely disgusting. I'm usually able to choke down things if I know they're good for me, but magnesium powder is supposed to be mixed in liquid. Well... it clumps... and turns juice brownish green... and it tastes like poison... So ... get the caps lol

    I hope you get results soon.

    One thing I was thinking about with Hashi's is that absence of antibodies doesn't always mean no Hashi's. I mean, if my antibodies went all the way away due to treatment, that doesn't take away the diagnosis, and doesn't mean that I am "cured". It would just mean my Hashi's wasn't active.

    This doesn't mean that if your ultrasound comes back normal and your full thyroid panel comes back fine that you should act as though you do have Hashi's, just that, it can't be ruled out just because at the moment your antibodies were low. But I really think that the Celiac thing is worth thinking about. Despite medicating hypothyroidism, the vast majority of my pretty recent recovery came after removing gluten and soy from my diet.

    Good luck!

This is the one that I'm taking right now: https://www.amazon.com/Metagenics-Mag-Glycinate-240-Count/dp/B004GLGXVO/ref=sr_1_14_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1482431873&sr=1-14&keywords=magnesium+glycinate

It's expensive, but it's extremely high quality. Be warned though, the pills are only 100 mg each which means that you'll need 4 of them a day. At least it's nice for splitting up doses.

The one I used to take is this one: https://www.amazon.com/Viva-Labs-Magnesium-Bisglycinate-Chelate/dp/B00HQP51ZG/ref=sr_1_1_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1482431977&sr=1-1&keywords=magnesium+glycinate+viva+labs

Much easier to get down, and much cheaper. I don't know too much about the purity, but I trust the Viva Labs brand enough.

As far as vitamin D goes, garden of life makes some of the best supplements out there. They use plant based sources for everything, so it's all incredibly absorbable (i.e. all of the natural enzymes that your body could use to process the vitamin are included in the pill). They're more expensive, but like the metagenics ones, incredibly high quality. https://www.amazon.com/Garden-Life-Raw-Supplement-Vegetarian/dp/B005JAT318/ref=sr_1_4_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1482432076&sr=1-4&keywords=vitamin%2BD%2Bgarden%2Bof%2Blife&th=1

If money is a concern, however, either now foods or viva labs make a much cheaper D3 that should work fine.

u/Fabulous_Feline · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

The pregnacare liquid tastes the same as the chewable vitamins - I know, because I have had the same issue as your wife. I bought chewable vitamins on amazon. They are expensive but you get tonnes in the bottle.

I bought these ones
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003IP8BC8/ref=pe_3187911_185740111_TE_item

But yeah, they taste pretty much the same as the pregnacare liquid, which I also bought. I think they are harder to get in this country because they are quite sugary.

I wouldn’t say the pregnacare liquid made me gag. It just had a weird aftertaste, so I just had a glass of juice after.

Edited to add:

In my first pregnancy my midwife told me I only NEEDED to take vitamin D after a certain point, as I have a balanced diet, and that the prenatals were expensive and folic acid is only necessary in the first trimester to prevent neural tube defects, so the expense of the above vitamins might be a one off payment while she still feels sick.
I don’t want to give you medical advice as I don’t know your wife or what her pregnancy is like, but after a certain point she won’t feel sick anymore I hope, and you could go back to cheaper vitamins...

u/sassyfras_ · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I have these, and also recommend their chewable calcium supplements.

u/ViviElnora · 2 pointsr/childfree

I don't have an eating disorder and I am not a doctor, so I don't know if this is the right way to handle things, so you should check with your doctor or psychiatrist before doing most of this. I have, among other things, an anxiety disorder, and Bipolar NOS, so I am basing my advice on what I have learned about self care from those, and on recommendations that my grandfather was given to help with his heartburn. Also, if this is sound advice for ED, I'm sure you know all this, but often when I'm going through a rough patch, I need someone to tell me to do my self care stuff.

If you haven't already, go through your kitchen and get rid of or lock up most of your high calorie/low nutrition food and everything that is really acidic. Go shopping for foods that are nutrient rich and lower acid. Also, get something like Ensure or Boost, it will help both with nutrition and lowering the acidity in your stomach. Eat mostly fruits and vegetables (you don't have to be vegan, you can still have meat, just eat it in moderation), and make sure you are eating enough insoluble fiber (whole grains, carrots, apples with the peels, leafy green vegetables, etc.). Stay hydrated and chew thoroughly. Eating like this will help get your food through your stomach faster. Taking a walk after eating helps too. ^1

If you haven't already, talk to your psychiatrist about taking vitamins (including a D3 supplement, the farther from the equator you are, the less you get naturally), calcium, and a probiotic. My psychiatrist recommend I take prenatal vitamins (I'm sorry, I know this could be hard for you right now). She told me they really should be the standard woman's vitamins, because most women need the extra folic acid, regardless of their plans for children. As for what kind of multivitamin to take, I recommend the Vitafusion Prenatal Gummy Vitamins. They don't have iron, so they are easier on your stomach and don't interfere with the absorption of calcium. I also like Vitafusion's Calcium. I have found that taking a calcium supplement helps with my heartburn. A probiotic (I don't know why but every time I try to type probiotic, it changes to phobic) should help the rest of your digestive tract cope better. I like gummy supplements because they are their own reward for taking them (I think they taste like regular gummies), and because they are chewed up, they should be absorbed faster.

Add something fun to your morning routine, something you will look forward to doing. I love to read, so I make sure to have time to read while I'm eating my breakfast (but I have to be sure to set a timer or get to work early enough to eat there, otherwise I get too distracted and end up running late which makes me stressed for the whole day).

Make yourself do something to treat yourself everyday. Get your nails done, get a massage, buy a new book or shoes or a movie, take a bath, go for a walk, something that normally makes you feel good or you have been wanting to try for awhile. Just doing something you normally find pleasurable, even if you don't really feel like doing it right now, can help you feel better.

And remember, even though we don't know you in the real world, we care about you. ❤ You are one of us, someone who understands how hard it is to live in a parent centric society, and we want you to be happy.

^1 Unless you have a medical condition that affects your diet, you should be fine making these changes without talking to your doctor first.

Did a little digging on amazon and found a few - search for Vegetarian Prenatal. Most important parts: folic acid and DHA. You can also find DHA as a secondary vegetarian supplement (usually it's from fish oil), it looks like it's not in very many of the vegetarian prenatals. I'll have to check my sample prenatals when I get home and see if there are any that are vegetarian there, then you could call your dr and have them prescribe for you.

This one looks promising, and is gummy! http://www.amazon.com/Vitafusion-Prenatal-Gummy-Vitamins-90-Count/dp/B003IP8BC8/

u/brynnflynn · 2 pointsr/TryingForABaby

Absolutely! Honestly, if you're not a little worried about bringing a person into the world, then you're probably not ready. That's the way I've always felt about it.

As for getting ready, now is the perfect time to pick up a copy of Taking Charge of Your Fertility, a Mabis basal body thermometer, and to find a good pre-natal vitamin and DHA supplement. I personally use a combination of Vitamin Code Raw Prenatal and Nordic Naturals DHA. They work well for me, and I got my period right when I expected to after getting my IUD taken out and have been regular as clockwork since.

I would also recommend signing up for FertilityFriend; it's the most common app we're all using, and does a great job of helping you keep track of your cycles. You don't have to go all in on temping (and if you choose not to, don't worry about the thermometer), but I've found it to be so helpful to keep my expectations in check rather than clinging to hope that "Maybe this period is just implantation bleeding".

But in terms of priority, I would highly recommend you pick up TCoYF, and getting started on a good pre-natal. Hope to see you around!

u/AnchorDown86 · 2 pointsr/pregnant

I take some pretty pricey vitamins, but I have been told that these vitamins are similar to the ones I take, but cheaper. They are a whole food vitamin which means that they are vitamins taken from food products that you could actually eat, so it makes it easy to digest and easier for your body to absorb plus they don't make your tummy hurt. A lot of cheaper vitamins are sometimes sourced from non food items like the calcium will be from oyster shells or dolomite. Everyone has their own opinion, and I'm not saying my way is the best way, I just like what I take, and I like how I feel. So, here are a couple links.

There’s one near me where the swim part is in a pool so that might be a better place for me to start. 😋

I’ve been taking this Vitamin D and I really like it. Remains to be seen if it’s actually helped though! I had been taking a prenatal that had much less vitamin D, but my GP suggested I take a specific one with a higher concentration.

I had lower end of normal vitamin D on my pre-pregnancy blood work so I've been taking D 5,000 UI since pre-conception. Now at 26 weeks my nurse midwife says my D levels are the best she's ever seen. I take it in the morning and so does my SO as his levels were low too.

I take the spray linked below. Once a week under the tongue, my blood checks have always come back great. I notice a difference between the methyl- sourced and the cyclo- or whatever sourced. The methyl- sublingual ones I've always noticed benefits. Body stores what it needs, expels the rest. Gives you a boost, they put b12 in energy drinks, so I like to take it on Mondays.

u/bulbysoar · 2 pointsr/PlantBasedDiet

Hi! I might be able to help,

For years I had acne-prone skin until I went on birth control and adopted a good skincare routine. My skin was super clear after that, until I went plant-based. I don't know if it was the sudden hormone change from dropping dairy, and/or the b12 supplementation, but I broke out in horrible cystic acne all over my face.

It seemed like b12 fortified products + the b12 pill I was taking was too much. Or maybe it was the type of b12 since I know there are two kinds. But I posted in a vegan Facebook group about my troubles and was recommended this spray supplement from Garden of Life. I unfortunately had to go on antibiotics to get rid of the acne, but since starting this supplement, I haven't had any more problems and my skin is incredibly clear. I just try to remember to take a spray or two every few days.

Good luck! Regarding skincare routines, r/veganbeauty might be able to help! :)

Edited to add: I also recommend checking out Brian Turner on Youtube. He's a vegan/mostly WFPB athlete who has dealt with extreme acne and has lots of helpful content on it.

u/Salyangoz · 2 pointsr/istanbul

so you can get l-theanine from amazon, thats harmless.
but modafinil is prescription.

Modafinil can be abused and its a perscription drug so best to ask a pharmacy for that.

---

Just some insight into /r/nootropics; If you want L-Theanine naturally all you need to do is drink tea. You're in the most tea consuming part of the world. Try all the different tea leaves and have some fun with it before artifically trying to fix the "problem".

Most notably there is an excessive coffee/caffeine culture in Turkey. caffeine can cause depression when taken in high amounts (yarali/ezik/emrah edebiyati ffs). Not to mention caffeine is an addictive stimulant which makes you seek it out more too. Potassium usually helps alleviate that. Try eating bananas or coconuts (or coconut water/juice). From personal experience I saw some effects in a week.

Im just a dude on the internet telling you these things but here is one of many papers describing the effects (on korean young adults but should apply on Turks too) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4826990/ but there are tons of other research being done as well.

u/Jrrolomon · 2 pointsr/adderall

Yes. Linked below. I usually take three of the L-tyrosine (Morning, noon, night) on empty stomach, and two of the L-theanine with the morning and night dose of L-Tyrosine.

Caffeine pill works good when taking with the L-theanine, but really any source of caffeine will do. Hope it helps.

u/dmagikwand · 2 pointsr/Nootropics

I don't know. I've tried a bunch and I'm really into this one made by a company called Sports Research. It is the Suntheanine formula and the L-theanine is contained inside of soft gels with a coconut oil base.
Sometimes, I will cut 2 soft gels open, squeeze them into my bulletproof coffee and blend them up. Pretty potent taken that way, IMO.

I took that for a while and honestly I'm not sure it's worth it. They're extremely expensive for a bunch of other ingredients that I'm not even sure are worth having. Sure there are some BCAAs in them, but I didn't feel like it made it worth it.

Honestly you're better off with something simple. Try this.

u/allyouneedis_kill · 1 pointr/Testosterone

I've done natural T boosters and can share some thoughts. I don't feel that they raised my T, but I didn't get labs to compare. However, I do think they gave me energy when taken before training. I've tried Test Booster 1.0 and Nugenix. The Test Booster was the more affordable and has 1,500 mg per serving and the premium priced Nugenix has 3,000 mg per serving. Both kind of felt the same in the end: more energy throughout the day.

Eventually I made vitamins and minerals my main concern and I feel I've been having ore success with that. Now, I take 1x DHEA on an empty stomach before breakfast. Eat, then take 2x D3 (https://www.amazon.com/Life-Extension-Vitamin-5000-Softgels/dp/B000GTFOBA/) and 1x Trace Minerals (https://www.amazon.com/Life-Extension-Minerals-vegetarian-capsules/dp/B005MJTUEG/). The Trace Minerals has boron, zinc, magnesium, chromium, etc. All things associated with T. With lunch I take 2 Life Force Multiple (https://www.amazon.com/Source-Naturals-Multiple-Activator-Capsules/dp/B000GFPD0G/). Then 2 more with dinner. That's been my natural T boosting regimen as of late. Hope that isn't too tangential.

At 5’8” 150 lbs is a fine weight depending of course on your body fat percentage. 135 lbs IMHO is way too skinny for that height. If you feel your body fat percentage is high then you’re better off doing strength training to convert that fat to muscle and build bone density rather than just cut to get skinny. Muscle mass has a lot of health benefits and it’s easier to maintain then just being skinny. Hell with some solid strength training under your belt you could easily weight more than 150 and look fit. BTW, I’m 5’8” and weight 168 lbs with probably about 15% body fat.

P.S. since you don’t eat meat, I highly recommend you supplement with b12, that is if you don’t already. B12 is really really important especially as you are in recovery. I recommend Jarrow Formula Methylcobalamin sublingual as it is the most bioavailable form and a solid third party tested form. Not sure if you do eggs or dairy or your reasoning for avoiding meat (I respect your choice) but I would also recommend thinking about doing pescatarian, eating fish or at least bivalves. Bivalves especially are great sources of nutrients and pretty environmentally sound food source.

Hi everyone,

I hope I don't get flamed but I searched fittit, googled, checked out the sidebar, researched on Examine, and Amazon -- and I still had some questions. I am trying to get take care of my health better.

I am under 30, M, lacto-ovo vegetarian (allergic to eggs) trying to lose weight, gain muscle overall. I have currently ordered the follow:

  • Omega 3 - Algae capsules

  • Opti-Men multivitamin

  • Vintage Burn

  • Methyl-B12

  • Whey protein powder (I take it with hemp seeds (or nuts some nuts), skim milk, banana, and peanut butter powder)

  • and Creatine powder

  • Fiber Pills

    How I stack it currently:

    Sometimes, I put my creatine powder in my protein shake before I head to work. I take 1 Omega-3 capsule, 1 multivitamin, 1 fiber pill around lunchtime. Then after a mid-day snack at some point, I take 1 methyl-B12. I head to the gym after work, then take another protein shake (this one is just with skim milk and whey powder).

    Could anyone provide guidance? Am I on the right track? Thank you so much!
u/vampirenurse · 1 pointr/TTC_PCOS

I started taking Jarrow Inositol which is myoinositol last spring. I was taking 4000mg daily either in the morning in a smoothie or in the evening dissolved in water. I got pregnant in August, I was good about taking it for the first several weeks but then got such severe morning sickness I stopped it and haven’t restarted it. We started trying in April 2016. I was also going through fertility treatments when I got pregnant, but I did feel better just with the addition of inositol.

u/Browngirl1983 · 1 pointr/PCOS

Sure! i saw a bunch of people recommend the Jarrow powder formula so I bought it online. It is lightly sweet and I just pour a tablespoon in my drink/water to sweeten it. I also carry a ziplock bag of it in my purse so that I can use it at work.

Make sure you don't take it with caffeine. Adding vitamin C sometime throughout the day also helps (whether by food or supplement).
https://www.amazon.com/Jarrow-Formulas-Inositol-Supports-Function/dp/B0013OUKPC

u/YouMeandtheREmakes3 · 1 pointr/infertility

My RE recommended it, but technically he recommended I just buy the key ingredient, myo inositol, and take that. It's much less expensive that way.

30 days of pregnitude, $35

113 days (at 2000 mg/day) of inositol powder, $14.72

BTW my RE specifically recommended the Jarrow brand.

Overall he recommended it for egg health, and had me start it 4 months before my first IVF retrieval cycle.

u/do_i_bother · 1 pointr/PCOS

It's just the brand

u/xnihil0zer0 · 1 pointr/loseit

It's a bit more expensive, but you can replace that whey protein with amino acids. They only have ~1 calorie per gram, instead of 4. They have higher bioavailability. Free-form amino acids don't need to be broken down by the liver, and get into the bloodstream much faster. I'm doing intermittent fasting, and I began losing muscle faster than I wanted to, but taking these has really helped. I take Monster Amino, in the morning and before bed. From what I've found, it's the most complete mix for its price. 15 minutes before working out and 4 hours afterwards, I take Extreme Nitric Stack for the FFAAs. It caused some skin flushing at first, but I instantly noticed increased endurance and faster recovery times followed.

I take this multivitamin, They are horse-pills, but you get a lot for the money. With Monster Amino, it approaches the tolerable upper limit for B6, so stop taking it if your hands start to tingle.

I also take calcium, magnesium, algal DHA, and L-Dopa, but those are more for helping with ADHD.

u/thedaradotcom · 1 pointr/Fitness

What is your favorite multi-vitamin?

I was using GNC Energy + Metabolism Blend until i ran out. Now i'm using ON Opti-men.

Since the switch i feel like i have less energy and am thinking about going back to the GNC blend. Any thoughts on this is appreciated.

u/minutestomidnight · 1 pointr/Fitness

The vast majority of research on Omega 3 cites 720mg of EPA and 480mg of DHA, and most Omega 3 supplements do not have enough of either. I suggest Trader Joe's Brand. The price isn't bad, and two of these a day will ensure you get enough.

As for multivitamin, I use Opti-Men but it really isn't that advantageous compared to a lot of others. I used to use Centrum Silver, and I will probably go back to that once I'm finished with Opti-Men. I hear good things about Orange Triad though.

u/Cato_Keto_Cigars · 1 pointr/keto

Are you hitting all your micros/macros? Anything missing there?

How much water are you drinking.

I was hungry a lot for the first week or so; I upped the water consumption, took supplements to ensure i was hitting everything [1], [2], [3] (#3, only because vegans have a hard time getting Omega-3 without meat) and it went away.

u/Pyronic_Chaos · 1 pointr/keto

Grab a multivitamin for your micros (I use Optimen, 1 tab per day), and just add some salt to daily food. Or Lawry's to everything in my case. I wouldn't suggest adding baking soda to your drinks, I doubt the sodium will dissociate to give you the electrolytic sodium needed (but I could be wrong).

Another thing I do is slightly coat BabyBel cheese rounds in some salt (mmhmm habanero salts from Esty). Easy low carb, salty snack.

u/Takaa · 1 pointr/keto

I started taking a multivitamin around the same time I started keto and I would get the weirdest dreams every single night. This from someone who has had maybe 1 or 2 dreams a year. I stopped taking them after 3pm because it was apparently keeping my brain more active. (I take Opti-Men but I knew going in that other people had reported dream side effects as well. Just CTRL+F 'Dream' on that Amazon page and you will find someone else saying the same.)

u/dravn · 1 pointr/StackAdvice

The question "what has had the most significant effect for you?" has been posed in /r/nootropics and /r/stackadvice before. The #1 answer is always exercise. Exercise will have a much more significant effect than any nootropic, and the recommendation is always to ensure that sleep, diet, and exercise are all taken care of before experimenting with nootropics.

That being said, some supplements can definitely help to address anxiety/depression. Let me also say that every body is different; and between two people who are trying to ameliorate the same condition, the same supplement could help one and worsen the other.

The essentials for anyone are: Omega-3s, magnesium glycinate, and a B-complex. Also consider ALCAR and a choline source (such as alpha-GPC).

Supplements that people report being beneficial for anxiety/depression (and therefore focus, energy, mental capacity): ashwagandha, rosea rhiodola, L-theanine bacopa, SEMAX, memantine.

There are plenty (1, 2, 3) of reports on what has worked for certain people to tackle their anxiety/depression. (Click through all of those).

My recommendation for you would be to get this magnesium, some good fish oil, and this B-complex. Then give SEMAX a shot. Then maybe look into bacopa, aswagandha, etc.

Regarding noopept: "Noopept reduces anxiety and depression for me. When I went through a bad time it would immediately take the emotion out of me." Perhaps try it too.

You need to regulate your hormones. By the way, people here will always just blame it on the hormones. But remember, your hormones will get out of whack for a reason, there are precursors that caused something to happen.

This isn't caused solely by puberty. It's a mixture of characteristics. Here's what you can do for a cheap remedy that you can get in Europe.

-Eliminate refined sugars from your diet. Refined sugars bring no benefit and only bring harm to your body.

-Adequate vitamin D. You can get vitamin D for free just by getting out in the sun and getting exposed.

-Exercise everyday. If you have access to a Sauna, go there after you exercise. Make sure you wash your face after you exercise.

-Sleep 8 hours a day. Change your pillowcases every other day.

Supplements that are game changers:
OptiZinc - Take 100mg of Zinc a day.

Boron - Take 6 mg of Boron a day.

B-complex - Once a day

Vitamin D with K2 - Take 2000 IU of Vitamin D a day w/ K2. Also take fish oil and a multivitamin, if you can afford one.

Those right there will change your acne. Limit dairy consumption as well. That should cure your acne or make it very controllable. If you can, go to a dermatologist and try to get a retinoid cream.

u/I_hate_cheesecake · 1 pointr/vegan

No problem! It can feel very overwhelming at first, but it gets easier once you have a few go-to recipes. As an addendum to the kickstarter (or the advice in this thread in general), make sure you are supplementing your diet with B12. The simplest way to do so is probably to just take a vegan multivitamin daily, or just a B12 supplement if you feel that your other nutritional needs are being met. Good luck!

u/lylet · 1 pointr/nutrition

I had a diagnosed B12 deficiency that resulted in numbness and tingling in various parts of my body as well as an electric shock sensation that would sometimes run down my spine starting from the top of my neck. I now take 1000mcg methylcobalamin b12 sublingually 1-2 times per week. I have had semi-regular blood tests ever since my diagnosis and I am now fully convinced that I am getting enough b12 from my supplement. Also, it's worth noting that my negative symptoms improved considerably within a few days and completely vanished after a few months. This is the brand I take: https://www.amazon.com/Deva-Vegan-Vitamin-Dissolve-Lozenges/dp/B001GAOHTS

However, it's worth noting that my B12 deficiency was caused by lifestyle factors and I discontinued that aspect of my lifestyle immediately at the same time I started supplementing B12. That means that I may have already been getting enough B12 and simply removing the negative lifestyle factor was sufficient. However, I do not believe there is B12 in any of the foods I consume on a regular basis, so it must have come from somewhere. I'm 99% positive the supplement played an essential role in my recovery.

So if you're trying to add mass/strength, your biggest concern with going vegetarian is probably going to be getting enough protein. I try to take in like ~200g/day. You can calculate what you need here.

I personally get most of my protein from protein shakes. I use pea protein exclusively, this brand. Unfortunately, it comes from China but I can't pass on the price point. I also add peanut flour, cocoa powder, bananas, flax seed meal (good source of omega-3's), psyllium husk fiber (helps to slow down digestion of protein), BCAA's, creatine, and beta-alanine all in almond milk. The reason for some of those supplements can be found here.

Thanks to the fiber and the flax seed, it gets super thick almost like pudding if you let it sit. Usually, I'll mix in cold brewed coffee to get the consistency I want. It's really good. I drink like ~48 ounces a day, every day. Still have yet to get tired of it.

As far as recipes go, I try to eat high protein meals usually with beans/legumes and quinoa. I use tofu or tempeh as meat substitutes quite a bit too. I eat a lot of chili and curries. My instant pot (pressure cooker) is always getting used.

I also supplement with this multivitamin.

In response to the anti-protein focus comment, I guess I would say that I eat at a calorie deficit so it's hard to hit my protein targets unless I supplement. However, you should still count your macros at least at first to make sure you're getting in the range of where you should be.

Ok, that was bad anyway onto the item that will make me happiest. Technically, it's a tie but I will list them both since one is more pricey than the other:

  1. Miracleberry Fruit Tablets - cheaper item, I have seen tons of videos of people reacting to eating acidic foods after taking a tablet and I really want to experience that myself



  2. Faber-Castel Watercolor Pencils - slightly more pricey, I love using watercolors and have always wanted to try using these pencils because of how beautiful they look when used for illustrations

Seems like there are a lot of good protein suggestions already. Have you heard of Miracle Fruit? It's a berry that has a compound that temporarily (2 hours or so) turns sour things very sweet, meaning almost all fruits will taste 200% sweeter (lemons taste like candy).

I've read accounts of people undergoing chemo having good results gaining back some flavor, and it comes in pill form. I bought a pack for the hell of it and it's fairly nifty.

For a total of $0.67/pill, then it's a question of how many pills he took per day. You can get most of them cheaper. Does he take 10? That's $200/mo. Does he take 20? That's $400/mo. And so on. The company lists a going rate of $58/mo for uninsured pt's. I don't know if metafolin can be prescribed, but I'm assuming B6 and B12 can be for a vitamin deficiency. That would reduce cost even more.

The point I'm trying to make is that yes, it probably did have an effect on the patient's willingness to commit suicide. But pretending like he had a singular issue and that was which food groups his insurance covered is, in my opinion, an oversimplified version of the events.

u/Nightingirle · 1 pointr/vegan

Hey, that's awesome!

First and foremost, educate yourself about nutrition. Seriously, nobody wants to further affirm the stereotype of the malnourished vegan, especially as an athlete or with somewhat athletic ambitions.

For nutritional information I would recommend the following resources:

Vegan for Life: Everything You Need to Know to Be Healthy and Fit on a Plant-Based Diet: A book with a lot of nutritional information.

Veganhealth: Website that has all the information about nutrients that need attention in a vegan diet and more. (Especially read up about B12 and take a supplement! I take the one I linked, because it's super cheap and vegan.)

Learn about complete proteins.

 

There are websites aimed at vegan athletes like these:

Tips from a Vegan Athlete plus meal recommendations

Meal Plan, information and a real life vegan bodybuilder

Some possible problems and their solution


 

Other stuff:
List of vegan athletes: Great as an inspiration and for that moment when people will try to tell you that it's impossible to build muscle on a vegan diet.

I love tofu, which has a lot of (complete) protein and I especially like this recipe.

Eat tofu, seitan and for the cheapest option rice with beans, lentils, chickpeas etc. Also plant milks, bananas, spinach, oatmeal, nut butters...


 

As a new vegan, you might find some of the things useful I posted yesterday. Skip the text at the beginning and especially take a look at the things about nutrition. I like to recommend the accidentally vegan foods as well.

Good luck! If you have any questions feel free to ask :)

u/IlII4 · 1 pointr/vegan

I love marmite and eat it all the time! However it's still recommended to supplement b12 even if you eat fortified foods.

Emergen-C Electro Mix is a great electrolyte. Just add to water and be done.

The first week for me was horrible. I started a new job, the new job was very busy so I didn't have time to eat... thus was crazy hungry but really trying to stay on track. Plus I felt crappy and was really spacey. Not good for a new job. Oh and when I exercised my legs felt like they had cement on them. It gets better.

EmergenC Electro Mix (sugar free) has Magnesium and Potassium

Natural Calm (Magnesium) (Stevia) (whoa, is Stevia Keto? I can't remember.) (I bought natural calm before keto to help me with Restless Leg Syndrome.)

I figure I get sodium in all the salt I put on my food (Himalayan Pink.)

Potassium-from my research (I can send one more link, I don't have time right now) it seems like we basically can't get enough potassium.. so go nuts. We would need like 40 cups of spinach a day or something.. crazy.

u/ByeByeFattie · 1 pointr/keto

I just followed the suggestions in the FAQ, so I went out and bought the highest does of Magnesium supplements I could find. The FAQ suggests Potassium Sulfate or Potassium Chloride, but I unfortunately could only find Potassium Gluconate, which is what I use. But if you can find what they list in the FAQ, i'd go with that. Something about the suffix "gluco-" doesn't seem keto-friendly to me. I also bought Benefiber to keep myself regular, and I use salt liberally. And I take a multi-vitamin. A cup of chicken broth was all I needed for the one headache I got in my first 2 weeks.

Emergen-C makes a supplement powder called Electro-Mix that makes a lemon-lime, sports drink type thing with electrolytes. Full disclosure, though: it tastes kind of yucky, IMO. It doesn't have enough flavor to really stand on its own, so it just tastes like you're drinking water that is "off." I'm thinking of adding lime juice, or maybe putting it in seltzer water to see if it tastes better.

This is what worked for me! Obviously every body is different, but I think it's a good place to start! Good luck!

I had this same problem when I started time before last. Turns out, keto in the beginning makes me have an upset stomach, and then I get in this awful cycle of upset stomachs because my stomach is irritated. I've taken to taking chewing pepto until my stomach calms down.

As for the weakness, I was having the same problem too. I was pitiful. Then I started drinking these once or twice a day, and I feel great! No sign whatsoever of Keto Flu. Seriously. I cannot stress this enough. These packets are marvellous.

u/Perseverant · 1 pointr/keto

LyteShow seems to be a little expensive (I looked on amazon). I think my favorite electrolyte go-to would be this: http://www.amazon.com/EMERGEN-C-ELECTRO-MIX-Lemon-Lime-4-2/dp/B002HWRY5S/ref=sr_1_1?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1415343741&sr=1-1&keywords=electro+c

It's way cheaper, and it's one packet per LITER of water, plus for each packet you get more electrolytes than each serving from the LyteShow which is also 3 times more expensive per electro c box. The Electro mix also is sweetened with Stevia, has no carbs, and tastes wonderful. I'm a stickler for quality, and I am surprised how wonderful it really is. I have it on auto pay on amazon for 2 boxes per month.

u/TheEliteDragon · 1 pointr/ketogains

I use these mainly on days that I work out for the electrolyte replenishment but they could probably work on a regular basis, too, to help with potassium. It's not a HUGE amount of potassium but it's another way to get it besides a salt substitute.

Electro-mix

u/persp73 · 1 pointr/carnivore

Hydralyte does have sugar, just less than Gatorade.

As I understand it, Vitamin C and glucose use the same receptor on the cell so they will compete, and so in a high-glucose environment you may need to consume more Vitamin C. I guess it depends on how much of this stuff you're drinking.

You might look for a better electrolyte source. I use this stuff. (Note: it's not the tastiest thing in the world.)

u/v0idl0gic · 1 pointr/keto

Its a easy way to get on the right track. You can also try mixing some NoSalt with your food.

u/ghostforest · 1 pointr/xxketo

This is really sounds like an electrolyte issue. If electrolytes are off, water and macro changes won't do much. I use Morton's Lite Salt on everything (it's half sodium salt and half potassium salt). Buy it at your supermarket, it's usually right near the regular salt, but in a smaller container. I also drink Electromix drink packets for potassium and magnesium - I buy those at Whole Foods or you can get them online. Finally, I also take magnesium malate capsules. With that regimen, I get no cramps and have never had any keto flu and feel great.

If you're still twitching, my money is on your electrolytes still being way too low. I aim to get at least 1000-1500 mg of extra potassium a day above what I get from diet. I also aim to get 300-600 extra mg of magnesium. And, salt what you eat.

My go to are the Emergen-C electrolyte packets, they're relatively inexpensive and while they may not taste amazing a packet will make a liter and they don't have all the sugar that gatorade has.

Also, muscle flutters/twitches, aching hands/feet and later on heart flutters and arrhythmia.

Headaches that don't go away with tylenol/ibuprofen or migraine meds are more common than actual migraines, but are also one of the first signs of sodium deficiency.

Good points.

In the OP I mentioned I'm also taking Electro Mix which does contain other electrolytes. Here's a link to the product if you're interested in checking it out: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002HWRY5S/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I've supplemented with Magnesium / Potassium in the past but have found that Electro Mix + salt water works for me. I also have electrolyte capsules that I carry with me but have rarely had to use them.

I know that Vitamin D is fat-soluble, but haven't really dug into researching whether or not it's completely useless to take while fasting. If it has even a fraction of the benefit it normally has I'd consider it worth it and if not, oh well I wasted a few bucks. I'll take it just in case though.

u/ketoll · 1 pointr/keto

I'd consider either carrying a bunch of these:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002HWRY5S/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&th=1

Or making my own ketoade concentrate and putting it in a clean water bottle (emptying out a Dasani bottle). Or both!

My ten-serving ketoade concentrate recipe:

  1. One 10oz bottle of magnesium citrate.
  2. Ten tablespoons of lemon juice from concentrate
  3. 50 grams of Morton's Lite Salt
  4. 10 good squirts of MiO lemonade flavor
  5. A little warm water to help the "salt" go into solution

    The above assumes that I'm getting some more salts from other sources. I also add in a multivitamin that includes some potassium and magnesium. Otherwise, what other folks here are saying - at the high end of what's needed for protein. Enough fat for satiety.

    If you don't mind toting it, a head of cabbage stays good for a long time out of the fridge and the leaves make good carriers for tuna (I'm thinking packets of tuna in oil + packets of mayonnaise + seasoning of your choice).

If you read the FAQ (almost) everyone loses weight in the beginning, has a stall for around a month or at least a few weeks, then weight loss picked up.

2 weeks isn't that long of a time for a stall, just keep eating as you should and don't weigh yourself as often.

I discovered Emergen-C Electrolytes through this sub. Now my husband makes a glassful too instead of relying on gatorade after his basketball games.

Appreciate the detailed response. I also noticed cutting was easier during lower protein (I wonder how much of that was muscle mass?).

Based on your comments about micronutrients...

I drink a lot of water and live in a warm climate. A doc friend told me to supplement electrolytes esp during workout days. I noticed big difference in how I felt/tiredness when I started taking these electrolytes before workouts.

I think it's easy to ignore the micronutrients especially when you are more concentrated on macros/cals. I also take this, which seems to cover most micronutrients, in case I miss those in food/supplements.

He has also told me that the bodies metabolism changes over the course of 3-5 years, so you many not be stuck with them forever.

u/Cellophane_Girl · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I take it over the counter. Mine was 7 when my doctor checked it. I started taking 2,000 IU's everyday. Then when I got it rechecked 3 months later is was still really low, 27. My doctor said it should be AT LEAST 50. So I got the 5,000 IU pills that I found on amazon ( I take one everyday, except Wednesday I take 2) and after a couple weeks at that dose I felt soooo much better. I haven't gotten it rechecked yet (will get it checked in July when I go to the doctor again,) but I'm pretty confident it's in range now. I'd say go for the 5,000 IU pills once a day. These are the one's I use 240 days worth of pills for $12. And they work really well. Can't beat the price.

My mom has a prescription for hers. It was like 50,000 IU's once a week, but they were like $20 a pill. So she started taking the 5,000 IU ones everyday and said she felt a lot better that way, because getting it in everyday didn't give her mood swings like the once a week pill did.

Good luck getting your levels up. It can take a while but once you get them up, as long as you keep taking the pills everyday it will stay up and you will feel sooo much better. It's really amazing what a difference it makes.

I also take 1,000 mg of magnesium everyday because it helps with the vitamin D absorption (from what I've read) and I realized that when I started taking it the random muscle spasms that I had for YEARS all over my body stopped almost right away. My doctors never mentioned that it might be a magnesium deficiency they just gave me a muscle relaxer to take at night so the twitching wouldn't keep me awake, but even with that I still got twitches all over. A lot of people who are deficient in Vitamin D are also deficient in Magnesium, so you might want to get that checked as well. :)

Personally I was diagnosed with psoriasis at age 19 and was immediately put on steroid creams for about 3 years. I ended up developing stretch marks as a result of the steroids and my psoriasis was no better. After noticing my rashes were improved in the summer time, I started researching auto immune diseases and vit d deficiency. I'm currently 30 yoa, take no RX for my psoriasis and have not had a rash since I was in my early 20's. If you live in a cold weather place (i live in Iowa) it is especially important to get it checked. Also when you do go out in the sun, make sure to wait at least 10-15 minutes before applying sunscreen as to not block any natural vit D you can get for free from the sun.

Edit: Here's the brand I like personally as not all supplements are the same.

u/The_Good_In_Things · 1 pointr/Fitness

I can't recommend actual doses as I don't know enough about them, but the consensus from /r/supplements led me to believe that this D3 supplement and this K supplement are proper and safe doses.

Hey, you may already know this, and if so, sorry, but maybe it'll help someone else.

Vitamin D is super important to preventing and minimizing SAD, and it takes your body a really long time to build and use up VitD, so start getting as much in you now as you can. Lots of time in the sun for all the sunny days we have remaining is the best way to do this. Depending on how your body processes VitD, that might be able to get you to early November, maybe even late November.

After that VitD supplements are the way to go. You should start those around Daylight Savings Time. They can be gotten pretty cheap, and if you're only taking them leading up to and during the SAD season, you run less of a risk of VitD toxicity. (Consult your doctor, obviously, before taking any supplement, much less more than the recommended daily allowance.)

All that said, it's a great idea to have a therapist on hand as well. Best of luck in locating one. I wish I had more info for you there.

Source: My wife has SAD, her VitD levels are around 10 nanograms per mililiter in summer months without taking supplements (normal people have 20 nanograms per mililiter or higher), so she takes about 10,000 IUs a day during SAD months (normal people maybe take 600 IU a day).

EDIT: Just thought of https://www.chasebrexton.org/ They might be worth a call.

EDIT EDIT: You also might be able to access free/cheap counseling services if you're in college.

u/HPLoveshack · 1 pointr/NakedProgress

You're probably a lot better on D than most people (deficiency is extremely prevalent), but moderate supplementation like 5000 IU per day could be worthwhile. It's not very expensive off of Amazon or my personal preference iHerb.

Also it's perfectly fine to pop 10,000 IU every other day rather than worry about getting the perfect sized capsule for daily supplementation.

Hell, I think I even have a coupon code for like 5 bucks off at iHerb somewhere if you care about saving 5 bucks.

u/MrsSpice · 1 pointr/Hypothyroidism

My husband was deficient and uses this one 2-3 days per week. It keeps his levels in range. You want to be rechecked after you’re on it for awhile to be sure you’re not overdoing it. Low vitamin d caused my aunt to feel how she did when she had zero thyroid hormones (ablation).

  1. My morning sickness started around 8 weeks, and lasted until about 16. I only had a few really bad days where I actually threw up, but I was nauseous most of the time.

  2. I took the Vitafusion Prenatal Gummy Vitamins, which I found to be both delicious and easy on my stomach. They don't have iron, so if you do you would have to supplement separately, but not everyone actually needs iron.
u/one_hot_llama · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

They make prenatals without iron also! The gummy ones don't have iron (read the first review on this one). One of my friends took Flintstone vitamins without iron instead of prenatals while she was pregnant also (suggested by her doctor). Worth a shot!

Sorry for the long reply, hopefully this helps. I feel like an old man taking pills every day, but it's better than having these headaches :D

u/soider8 · 1 pointr/TheRedPill

Ah I see, thanks again for the reply.

A quick search on amazon led me to these Vit K tablets which seem good from the reviews https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004GW4S0G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_d89VAbTCWQDMB

I will also build myself up to 6k UI daily in Vit D alongside taking Vit K. Do you know if it’s possible to take too much Vit K? I’m assuming the Vit K that is not used is pissed out.

I’m not sure if my bones are frail or not (my feet get tired/ache from standing too long?) however strangely enough I grew around 2-3 inches in height last year (age 21). At the time I was lifting/playing football, eating well and getting a good amount of sun exposure (walks I took daily as exam revision breaks) so I’m not sure if this was all related. The height thing is what initially caught my attention from your original post.

Edit: I’ve just realised that the link above is for a Vit K complex.

This seems better just for K2

Also, I have read that vitamin D may effect the circadian rhythm so I take the vitamin D in the morning. I take it every other day since 5k IU per day might be a lot considering there is a lot of sun here.

Vitamin K2 was recommended to me for vitamins for healing a stress fracture and was hard to find as a stand alone pill. While I was looking for it I found the blog I mentioned and his experiences with this pill. I have been taking this (one pill /day) http://amzn.com/B004GW4S0G for 2 weeks now and have noticed a lot less plaque building up between meals. It's also been almost 2 years since I had a dental cleaning so I am excited to see how clean they stay once I get a proper cleaning later this month.

u/Advanced_Selection · 1 pointr/tressless

Thanks. If I were tight on funds and time, I'd probably narrow it down to these three.

NatureWise Vitamin D3 5,000 IU 2x a day in the morning.

Now Supplements Glycine 1000mg Between 1-6 grams per day, depending on your stress levels. Probably best used before bed.

NOW Solutions, Castor Oil 1 tbsp per day (5 mL)

As I learn more about Glycine, I'm starting to think it may have been the difference maker. It's relieved chronic stress that I was stuck under the past few years.

I'd also reccomend avoiding strict, low-calorie diets. Don't avoid or cut out carbs.

u/smurfsm00 · 1 pointr/adderall

Thanks, /u/lilsavito! Happy to be of service:)

I started Adderall for the first time just a few months ago - I was already eating well and the adderall wiped out my appetite but got super-thirsty so juicing is a great solution. You'll feel physically a lot better when you do it. Make sure to mix superfood-veggies/low-sugar fruit and go easy on high-sugar fruit.

Here's the juicer I have: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003ZDNKSS/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's very easy to use and clean (important!) and my only issue came after I dropped the lid on the floor and there was a minor crack, still works fine. Really juices well for the price.

I'm working on a simpler, at-a-glance version of my on days / off days list - will post it here soon, hope folks continue to find it helpful.

Regarding my routine: in actuality I reliably take the Emergen-C / Fish Oil Pills / Vitamin D / Melatonin pretty well. I do believe they've helped with my energy levels and sleep regulation. I DONT exercise as much as I want to - I am convinced exercise will be super helpful but I also have a bout of depression so am working on it....but I despise exercise in general, so this list helps those who also despise it - the key is to make it as easy to do as possible so you can't talk yourself out of doing it, and to honestly tell yourself "well done!" after trying it, even if you only worked out for a minute the first time, it's a huge help to pat yourself on the back and encourage yourself for any effort you're making.

My productivity has been touch and go - biggest problem for me is making sure I'm not on the computer (reddit, surfing web) when my meds kick in cause they make me hyperfocus and spend HOURS online doing nothing else. The only way it helps me get things done (cleaning, errands, projects, work, etc) is to stand up and tell myself i'm not sitting down again till I start part of my project. I did this last night with deep cleaning my apartment and once I made myself get started, I worked for like 6 hrs no problem.

Other people have mentioned L-theanine - it's supposed to be great with increasing motivation/decreasing depressive symptoms. Here's the kind I got based on a recommendation: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TXY32FY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Just as an FYI for vitamins, I feel like I'm doing a PSA advocating Source Naturals vitamins. They're made of the highest available sources (hence the name) and Significantly less is wasted through urine meaning better absorbable (bio-available) nutrients are used and absorbed by the body.

I had to learn way too much about vitamins... Cheap (non bio-available) ingredients just get pissed out.

u/Gaywallet · 0 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

There is no question that any clinician would tell you to take a supplement if you are observing any diet which includes no meat.

I mean, ignoring the obviously questionable sources, what is so wrong with taking a supplement? I never understood why many veg*n's have an issue with taking a supplement that is manufactured in a veg_n friendly manner. They are not hard to find. It's mind boggling.

u/pnoque · 0 pointsr/AskReddit

> there is no natural non-animal source of B-12

This isn't correct. You can get vegan sublingual B-12 supplements (vegan because they are derived from the soil bacteria that grazing animals get it from, sublingual for optimum absorption). If you get them through Amazon's "Subscribe & Save", you get a discount and free shipping to have them automatically mailed to you when you run out.

I strongly recommend taking these if you want to avoid the inevitable "vegan brain cloud" and other serious neurological problems that can come from a B-12 deficiency. I hit this about three months after going vegan and it was very scary.

With the protein thing, honestly, if you're eating a wide variety of produce you won't even have to worry about it. Get plenty of grains (whole wheat, brown rice, quinoa), legumes (beans), tubers (potatoes), and a variety of vegetables. Grains and tubers do wonders for making you feel full. Drink a lot of water to maximize the effect.

u/rjdang · 0 pointsr/nutrition

B12 is not a huge concern. Your body creates reserves of it that can last longer than a year. So even if you aren't getting it daily you won't be deficient as long as you get it sometimes. Although some people have a rare disease where you need regular injections, but you would know if you had this problem, it's unrelated to diet. The best type of b12 is methyl b12: http://www.amazon.com/Jarrow-Formulas-Methyl-B12-1000mcg-Lozenges/dp/B002FJW3ZY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1374156839&sr=8-2&keywords=methyl+b12 it's what is most widely available in nature. The most popular type though is artificially produced from bacteria ( Cyanocobalamin). This type converts just fine into a form your body can use though. Some like to claim that it isn't good enough, but that claim is not strongly supported by evidence. However methyl b12 is definitely more bioavailable so I use it to supplement maybe twice a week plus I eat fortified tofu, tempeh and soy milk and nutritional yeast. Many other things are fortified with it as well these days, so it may never be a concern. Although be careful with just using nutritional yeast, the b vitamins break down if it is stored too long or cooked too long at a high temperature. Also be careful if you tend to avoid processed foods completely, you may need to supplement. Is extremely safe to supplement b12 even in high doses so don't fear. Some labels will say 1000x RDA and that's totally fine for b12 (not for all vitamins though), you just pass the excess. Also, don't get too caught up in the idea of things being "natural". Natural, whatever that means in the days of cars planes high tech farms computers and biotech, does not necessarily mean safe or healthy. We've come a long way as a species to save ourselves from the great harms of nature. To begin with, a vegetarian diet is not that natural, it's just ethical and efficient and in many ways healthy (although you should not be vegetarian if your only motive is optimal health). Agriculture at the level required to support an all veg diet is a relatively recent occurrence in human evolution. Other things to be aware of: vegetarians often have trouble getting iron, zinc, vit d, omega 3s, and calcium. So try to incorporate more foods with these into your diet if you don't choose to supplement.
