It sounds like you need more than just Vitamin D.

Without much context, you also sound anemic.

A full blood panel would be recommended. In the meantime I would take the following:

Take every morning/early afternoon (with a meal):

  • 5000 - 10000 IU Vitamin D3
  • 15:1 mg Zinc:Copper
  • 500 - 1000 mg EPA + DHA Omega-3 Fatty Acids (fish oil or algae oil)

    Take every evening (with a meal):

  • 200 - 400 mg Magnesium Glycinate
  • 3 -10 mg Boron
  • 1000 - 2000 mg EPA + DHA Omega-3 Fatty Acids

    Learn more about why those supplements will likely improve your health.

    Increase your calories and eat some meat, if you aren't already. Grass fed beef and organ meats are best in your case.

    If your parents don't want to buy these supplements for you, head down to a CVS and buy them yourself. Ultimately your health is your responsibility, not the responsibility of your parents or your doctor. You made a great first step by reaching out on Reddit. Build on that momentum :)

    If you'd like to talk about it more feel free to PM me. I hope you get better OP!

Sorry to bring bad news, but, assuming you got the same one that Amazon calls "Nature Made High Potency", it only contains Magnesium Oxide.

Magnesium Oxide has extremely low bioavailability, and has some other issues as well. It's rust, in essence. So unfortunately you'll really not get any benefit whatsoever by taking those. Your body will only absorb about 5% or less of each softgel, meaning each is really only going to give you 10-20 mg.

Really the one you want is Magnesium Glycinate. I take the Doctor's Best brand which is unbuffered, meaning the pill contains 100% Mg Glycinate with no other lesser forms included. Glycinate is the most bioavailable form of Magnesium and is the best for supplementation. This sort of logic rings true with a lot of other supplements. Many brands will happily sell you minerals with poor bioavailability (multivitamins have this flaw especially), so it's wise to do this check for all supplements you buy.

To answer your question though, no, 400mg isn't too much. Really you can take as much as you want and your body should just not absorb what it doesn't need. 400mg is a solid daily dose though. Take it before bed, as there is a small amount of evidence to suggest it can be a sedative and help sleep.

Don't take it at the same time you intake Calcium, as Calcium does inhibit absorption of Magnesium to some extent. Taking Vitamin D/K and Magnesium in addition to a diet with lots of Calcium is a pretty strong combo, as D/K/ Magnesium all have important roles in Calcium absorption and its integration in bones. Take the D/K/ and your Calcium food in one sitting, and the Magnesium later once the Calcium has already been digested.

For a good overview of Magnesium and its effects, check

D and fish oil in the morning - Vitamin D has an inverse relationship with melatonin. This means it helps you wake up and increase the melatonin to serotonin shift that happens every morning, peaking around 11am. Fish oils brain health effects would be optimized taking this time of day for related reasons and it's a fat too which helps vitamin D absorption.

Magnesium with lunch - just take it separate from the calcium which it competes with

Calcium with dinner - it's a natural muscle relaxant.

If you're taking Vitamin D you should really consider K2. Vitamin D is actually a pro-hormone and it increases free calcium in the blood stream. This is bad for various reasons. K2 will redirect that calcium from the bloodstream into teeth, bones and way from soft tissue. The K2 and D3 will work with your supplemental calcium in the most optimal way to support bone health.

These are both high quality


Much of the research with K2/Osteoporosis used the MK-4 form at 15milligrams per day. If you want to try that I would suggest Thorne Mk4. I use 5 or 6 drops/day myself. If you do 5 drops this should last almost a year.


Some information about K2

Coffee (or any caffeine source, pills are uber cheap), ephedrine, and capsaicin. Lots of water. Yohimbine for some people but start with a VERY slow dose (I react very poorly to small doses even though I have a very high tolerance for most stimulants).

Keeping your diet high in protein and fiber will generally help.

Not really a supplement but getting as much high quality of sleep as possible and avoiding alcohol will both often help appetite.

Definitely take another look at caffeine. It's so cheap and you might be surprised in it being effective in body composition improvements even after tolerance is built to its stimulatory effects.

Most of the diet pills at the drug store that work are heavily labeled toward some proprietary blend and hype up that they contain raspberry ketones or something but the energy and effect is 99% because they're also loaded with caffeine that you could get for a small fraction of the cost (shipped-for-8-cents-each-cheap).

u/Acid_Affairs · 2 pointsr/Supplements

From what I can tell the supplements don't seem that bad. However, at least for the animal m-stack and gnc beyond raw re-forge they contain a lot of ingredients which can mess up with calculated desired results when taken together.

Are you taking a high-quality multivitamin? The only supplement your taking that is providing any essential nutritional value is that gnc beyond raw re-forge. From these supplements alone you are still lacking essential minerals like calcium. And even if you do take a good multivitamin you will still lack the recommended dietary allowance of calcium, magnesium, or even iron if you are not eating enough meat. It depends on your diet and what kinds of food you eat. If you want to supplement I'd suggest Calcium Citrate/Malatate, and Magnesium Glycinate. If you want these nutrients from food instead I'd suggest Greek Yogurt.

I would add some more supplements to complete the stacks:

Early morning and/or late afternoon stack:

the animal-mstack: one pak every day for 21 consecutive days and 7 day rest. So, three weeks on, one week off.

usplabs compound 20: 2 capsules with breakfast and 2 capsules 6-8 hours later with meal or snack. For best results, take one of the doses 30-60 minutes prior to workout.

gnc multivitamin sport or source naturals life force multiple

When building muscle it is very important for your body to rest so that muscle tissue and other parts can repair and build upon itself. The most rest you get the whole day is when you sleep. The more high-quality sleep you get the more effectively your body can repair itself and grow (e.g. growth hormone secretion).

Before bed time stack:

gnc beyond raw re-forge: one pack prior to bedtime

source natural theanine serene with relora

source natural calcium citrate/malatate

At 6'2 145, you aren't, and likely have never, been eating enough. Download MyFitnessPal, and track your calories. Don't estimate stuff, put it in a measuring cup or on a food scale. If I were you I would aim for 3000 calories a day to get started at least. It'll probably be tough for you to get there. If you're not gaining weight over the next couple weeks doing that every day, you're counting the calories wrong (fast and slow metabolisms are a lie).

A lot of people are saying there's no need for protein or creatine when you're just starting lifting. The first and most important thing is to eat more. If you don't eat more you won't get bigger. Once you start eating enough though, I would add protein and creatine on top of that. When you couple them with the newbie gains, in my experience, it's pretty noticeable.

You didn't mention lifting in your post, but my response is assuming that you are going to lift. If you don't, you'll only gain fat. Pick a good routine from the r/Fitness wiki, I really enjoy the PPL on there.

To sum things up:

  1. most importantly, eat way more every day and lift consistently.
  2. once #1 is happening, start taking one scoop of whey protein after workouts, and one teaspoon of micronized creatine monohydrate once a day every day (even on days you aren't working out)

    The protein I use is MyProtein Impact whey

    The creatine i use:
    Optimum Nutrition Creatine Powder, Unflavored, 600g

I found this:

But thats freakin expensive. If you're from the US they have DMAA on

[] ( 5.95 shipping - the more you buy the higher shipping cost SmartPowders 1,3 Dimethylamylamine - 200 Caps - 20mg $13.99 (286mg/dollar)

[] ( 5.95 shipping 1,3-Dimethylamylamine (20mg/200 caps) $19.95 (201mg/dollar) $6 shipping SNS: Adrenea-G, 240 Caps 25mg/cap $17.95 (334mg/dollar) [I know of a coupon code: lockout05, 5% off?]


If you want JUST DMAA, lockoutsupplements will be cheapest. If you're going to be purchasing more things in the future, I suggest you bundle it in with the DMAA order to save on shipping.

Edit: Anekin007's link has it for about 913mg/dollar. And its like $2 shipping. Would recommend unless you don't have a milligram scale as it is in free form powder, not in capsules. A scale like this is effective and pretty good with the money:

u/rao-blackwell-ized · 2 pointsr/Supplements

Sounds like a good plan. I'd consider possibly adding a probiotic and Rhodiola for some more energy. An omega 3 supplement should definitely help with energy and brain fog. I use this one. When are you taking the zinc and magnesium? Magnesium is a relaxant and for some people even acts as a mild sedative in helping put you to sleep, so it's best taken at night before bed. From your last part about B vitamins, it sounds like you're basically already taking a B complex. Also, the multi you get may contain all the B vitamins you need.

u/ThrowinStacks · 1 pointr/Supplements

Creatine timing doesn't matter once your muscles are saturated with creatine.

Your fish oil seems very low in epa/dha. My current fish oil contains 750mg combined epa/dha. So I only take 2-3 a day. I don't think there is any benefit to take more than 1-2 grams per day. That amount is perfectly safe.

I would recommend Rhodiola from my personal experience. That's another I buy from NOW.

L-Carnitine in the form of ALCAR affects the brain and the body. In LCLT form it only affects the body. You might get extra stimulatory effects from ALCAR, but you may not get the same testosterone uptake response you get from LCLT.

It's your personal preference if you'd rather juice a beet root before each workout, or take a scoop of powder. The difference is probably insignificant.

Rhodiola will help immensely with stress. That's it's main purpose. There shouldn't be any negative drug interactions. ALCAR has also been shown to have antidepressant effects.

The only thing else I would recommend is a multivitamin. I suggest Rainbow Light for Men because of it's high potency and bio-availability. A good multivitamin should improve your energy and mood.

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/kikellea · 2 pointsr/Supplements

I could be wrong, but the Blue Ice one is pinging alarms for me. Not really bad alarms, but more like they're selling an ineffectual money-waster.

I'd go with a simple Omega 3 supplement. Which can be hard to find, as you normally want one with high EPA/DHA and few actually list those contents. does a good comparison of products. For personal recommendations, I like NOW Ultra Omega, and Nutrigold is pretty good too.

u/ryeguy · 1 pointr/Supplements

Thanks for your help. Is something like this acceptable, and safe to take with the above multi? Also, how much lemon juice should I be taking daily to get the desired effects?

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/Supplements

Yep, agree with above.

I just had mine tested at home through
for around $75. I live in a warm sunny place, take 5000IU a day, and my level was about 73.

I also highly recommend taking with vitamin k2. I noticed my teeth felt stronger/cleaner when I started taking this one.

u/jarrellt67 · 6 pointsr/Supplements

Personally, I got tired of reading various opinions on which form of K2 was best (mk-4 or mk-7). So, I just ended up buying Life Extension Super K. It contains k1, k2 (mk-4) and k2 (mk-7) - At least this way I know I'm getting good doses of all types. Also, the softgel is very small and easy to swallow.

u/eleitl · 1 pointr/Supplements

I'm using as I'm quite sure I won't be able to get myself to like natto.

No citation stack, I just play it by ear. Not doing quantified self since I don't trust the vendors with the data and as a whole it looks like a yet another way to spend money to pollute your life with even more data. I tend to minimalism as I get older.

I notice higher endurance and much better mood. It seems that Bacopa/ashwagandha have started producing more tangible results now. Definitely a far stronger effect than Rhodiola alone.

Another thing I didn't mention in my stack: I drink about 1 l of strong green tea daily (and about a l of black tea).

I think magnesium may help. I use Doctor's Best High Absorption Magnesium (200 Mg Elemental), 240-Count, which uses the glycinate/lysinate chelate, so you may be interested in that for the glycine as well.

u/Dizzy_Slip · 2 pointsr/Supplements

Dosing is an interesting issue when it comes to the K vitamins. For example, the amount considered "adequate" to meet our health needs is very tiny, in the microgram range. Yet in Japan, as you mentioned, doctors often use K2 in the MK4 form to treat osteoporosis, yet when they do that, the amounts are in the milligram range.

To put that into perspective, I believe in Japan they recommend 45 milligrams daily to treat osteoporosis. But the "Adequate Intake" or AI for vitamin K is 90 micrograms for a woman, 120 micrograms for a man. 45 milligrams is 45,000 micrograms. I mean milligrams is still a very small dose but for treatment levels it's still thousands of times more than what science currently considers "adequate."

Here's a side question. What's the largest supplemental dose of any of the K vitamins that you've been able to find? I currently use the Life Extension Super K complex: It has a mix of K2 as both MK7 and MK4, plus it also has K1. I take that twice a day, plus a few hundred micrograms more in other forms.

The largest single dose Vitamin K in any form I've been able to find is Thorne Research in liquid form as K2 in the MK4 form.

It's expensive at almost $65 a bottle. But cost per unit, it's still very cheap I think. Each drop is 1 milligram of MK4 K2. That's equivalent to 10 pills at 100 micrograms each. If you did a drop a day, the bottle has about 1200 drops so it would last a while. But if you wanted to do what the Japanese do and do 45 milligrams a day, the bottle would last only about 26 days at 45 drops a day. even at the 1 milligram dose, it's still way larger than the 100 microgram pills I've been able to find for K2 MK4.

Most K supplements are in the microgram range. The Life Extensions is the largest single dose I could find.

Have you been able to find any other large dose supplements of any of the K vitamins?

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. :

Maybe change the Magnesium citrate to Magnesium glycinate (chelated). Not only is Magnesium glycinate better absorbed than citrate, it is easier on your stomach (won't give you stomach pain) and won't give you diarrhea which magnesium citrate often does.

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/drogean2 · 3 pointsr/Supplements

be CAREFUL about taking any magnesium oxide, its the cheapest form of magnesium and the least absorbable - meaning it's basically a laxative and will give you liquid diarrhea REALLY easy

you really want the stuff that ends with -ATE , doesnt have the side effects

as far as multivitamin, you may want to switch to something with join suporrt like this stuff which is praised highly in the body building community. I take half the daily dose since i'm not an athlete.

on the same note i've heard nothing but good things about Cissus for join pain.

This is the best that I have ever taken. Best ratio of DHA and EPA for the price per capsule (most Fish oil capsules have annoyingly low levels of DHA, which is a more complex molecule than EPA and is preferable for the brain and eye function support). It will have a bit of after taste if not taken with much food.

Answer me this then: if every labeling of magnesium xyz is elemental magnesium, according to you and the government, then why are the following supplements SPECIFICALLY labeled elemental magnesium (instead of just saying magnesium xyz):

Think about it: if you have one supplement that says 100 mg magnesium xyz, and another that says 100 mg elemental magnesium (from 2000 mg magnesium xyz), and both pills are roughly the same size, does that add up? It doesn't to me. And here's another thing: I didn't start having the vivid dreams and waking up refreshed until I started taking the magnesium laxative at 1 fl oz. 1 fl oz is 1,745 mg of magnesium cirate, with 282 of it being elemental magnesium. When I was taking it in tablet form, I was taking 400 mg of magnesium citrate, but I never experienced any differences in my dreams or felt more refreshed waking up.

Get some caffeine

Maybe some Ephedrine (I use Synephrine, ephedrine's little brother)

And for me personally I find I function better when I add in some L-tyrosine

Finally I like to add in some L-theanine which helps prevent any kind of jittery feeling.

I usually use:

  • 100-200mg of Caffeine
  • 100mg of Synephrine (Start lower at 25mg and work your way up to a dose that works for you).
  • .5-1g of L-Tyrosine
  • 100-200mg of L-Theanine

It's been awhile since i've researched this, but about two years ago when i was looking for a Vitamin K2 supplement the Thorne Research - Vitamin K2 Liquid (1 mg/drop) - 30 ml product was by far the cheapest per mg. The bottle is expensive though (~$64 USD) but it has 1200 drops at 1mg of menatetrenone (MK4) per drop, so the daily cost (if you take 1 drop, or 1mg of MK4, per day) is only $.05 (5 cents). The Life Extension product that OP linked to for example is 20 cents per day (or 16 cents per mg of mk4+mk7), which is about 4 times more expensive than the Thorne Research product.

u/CharlesVI · 1 pointr/Supplements

  • Its just creatine. Other factors such as diet and your programming will have greater effects on your overall strength.

    >I know these may all be stupid questions but I spent too much money for this not to help my training.

  • Next time do a bit more research at [] (

What do you think of this one? I was going to take 200 mg AM and 200 mg PM.

Got this scale for 6 months now and it's been very accurate. I measure all my supplements with it. You get more for your money with powder. The bottle of primaforce won't last more than 2 weeks for most people. For the same price powder will last atleast 6 months.

This one is what I see pop up the most on this sub and it's the one I use

u/sundowntg · 3 pointsr/Supplements

I bought this and just take a small spooful in the morning with water. It should be a 2 or 3 year supply. You can get it either flavored or unflavored.

I am about 6 weeks into BJJ after 7 years of wrestling. I have also done a bit of Muay Thai, but don't have the energy/time to do both right now, since I ride my bike to work and am training for a half marathon.

So the Eklund Essential Omega works out to about 34 cents a gram.

And the Dr. Tobias works out to about 10 cents a gram.

BTW, the serving size on both bottles is different.

There are a lot of bag magnesium supplements out there. If you are using magnesium oxide, you are wasting your time. I recommend this:

u/VirtualMoneyLover · 8 pointsr/Supplements

There are more types of magnesium, and oxide is the worst as bioavailability (only 5% is absorbed by the body) goes, but it is cheap.

"Magnesium forms a variety of industrially and biologically important compounds, including magnesium carbonate, magnesium chloride, magnesium citrate, magnesium hydroxide (milk of magnesia), magnesium oxide, magnesium sulfate, and magnesium sulfate heptahydrate (Epsom salts)."

Now I am not sure which one of these causes or not diarrhea, but for supplement we use citrate, because it is highly absorbed and doesn't cause problems for us, but YMMV. It is also not cheap and locally isn't sold.

I advise you to go on Amazon and look up magnesium citrate and sulfate and read the reviews if there is complaints about diarrhea...

I ended up getting the nutrigold one. It has Bacopin which is 50% bacosides(175mg bacosides/pill). Just need to take 2 pills(350mg bacosides), 90 tabs, and 16 dollars.

So it will cost about $12/month. It seems like a cheaper deal, perhaps you should look into it too since it is an integral part of your stack. They also operate under GMP-approved and FDA registered facilities so the metal scare is not a problem.

u/leadfarmer153 · 2 pointsr/Supplements

Only one place and I see someone has linked you. At only 50mg per use, I have basically a lifetime supply. I also jumped on my AMP citrate supply when I could smell the FDA ban coming. If you do order it get alot. Only a matter of time before it disappears. It says it has an expiration date. But I'm not buying into that. Keep it in a cool dry place. Again I stress the importance of a .001 gram scale. It's a dangerous powder. Don't get alpha male cocky with it. Be safe.

The scale I use. It works great American Weigh Scales GEMINI-20 Portable MilliGram Scale, 20 by 0.001 G

At first you had me questioning why the pharmacist had to sell it to you and could deny you, then I remembered what it was like in Germany where it was impossible to get supplements.

Disclaimer: I'm not a doctor.

I used to wake up 5-8 times a night. I now take 200mg before bed and can sleep through the night with the exception of waking up to pee since I drink protein shakes before sleeping. I started with 200mg and would not take more than 400mg as that's not recommended.


Melatonin: falling asleep

Magnesium: staying asleep

Glycine: getting quality sleep

There's also a brand called "Nutrigold". They sell a bottle of 90 capsules for relatively cheap. Each capsule is 500 mg, with 175 mg extract of bacopa a and b in each. You can get it off of Amazon. I had no issues with the supplier. Fast shipping too.

u/micahglasser · 3 pointsr/Supplements

I was off on my recommendation. I actually meant 300 micrograms. This is the one I take. Also they sell gummy melatonin at Walmart they are 1.5 milligrams a piece so if you cut them in to thirds it's about the right dose.

u/JavierThrash117 · 1 pointr/Supplements

Well I bought it from here:

That's creatine powder and as far as I know you take that with the protein shake and with meals.
But maybe I'm wrong and I need to get some needles

u/usernameliteral · 1 pointr/Supplements

No no no no, I'm sorry, I should have mentioned this. :-( Magnesium oxide is not good. It's barely absorbable and it'll just go right through you. Its best use is probably as a laxative. Get magnesium citrate or glycinate or one of the other good forms (look it up!). This is the one I use. It is magnesium glycinate/lysinate chelate.

If you did mean B12, then I'm confused because ZMA has B6, not B12. Why are you talking about B12? But if you're not getting ZMA, then I suppose it doesn't matter anymore.

u/jmor88 · 1 pointr/Supplements

Are you talking about this one?

I bought of bottle of that and it gave me some serious "digestive upset."

I switched over a slow release magnesium malate and I have had no problems with it all.
