Sooo I'll preface this by saying that I shamelessly crib my vitamin/supplement regimen from my mom, and do little-to-none of the reading she suggests. But, as someone prone to anxiety & depression who (due to a separate chronic health condition) can't do prescription psychotropics, she's pretty exhaustively well-informed. Based on what I've retained of her advice, here are some additional mood impacters you might wanna look into:

-Ashwaganda: Taken at night. I didn't feel it did much for me, but my mom swears by it.

-GABA: Here's a specific lozenge formulation that I really like for acute anxiety. It also has L-Tyrosine, which I've never taken separately, but she does.

-L-Theanine: Taken in the morning, as like D3 it boosts energy. I do find it makes a difference for me.

-L-Tryptophan: Huge upgrade over melatonin for both of us. Melatonin gives me sleep paralysis, weird dreams and a sort of druggy hangover afterwards. Tryptophan has none of those downsides (tho of course YMMV) and has a mildly positive effect on my mood/general sense of wellbeing the following day.



-St. John's Wort can work wonders but be very cautious with it. Basically research, introduce and monitor it with the care you would a new prescription medication.

There's a book you might find helpful called The Mood Cure that discusses all of this in depth. Have I read more than 10-20 pages of it? No. But IIRC those 10-20 pages were pretty user-friendly and my mother the expert consistently refers back to it, so I'm recommending it anyway. Good luck!

Edit: Wort not wart.

Wearing these 4 hours before going to sleep, and I'm not even joking. Also the free program f.lux for your computer.

Glycine (an amino acid, extremely common and the simplest of amino acids) helps people fall asleep. Tryptophan also helps quite a bit too.

Magnesium, zinc, and Vitamin B6 have also shown to help to a degree (why ZMA helps).

B6, Tryptohphan and even the orange glasses and f.lux all help by increasing levels of serum melatonin in your brain/body. You can try supplementing with melatonin if you want, but less is generally actually better. For example, 0.5mg/night was more beneficial than 20mg/night for helping people fall asleep. Your body needs an esimated ~0.2mg (for an adult male) to sleep properly.

Theanine (found in green tea) is also shown to help promote relaxation and such, and you can buy it in bulk for decently cheap over at Smartpowders. A dose as low as 10mg is effective, so that 20 grams could theoretically last you 5 years. The more you take the more effective it becomes though, a standard dosage is 100mg, which would make 20 grams last about 6 months.

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!

particularly I resonate strongly with this symptom, it's something I have not seen mentioned elsewhere, my cognition is top but I don't have the patience to actually sit down and read a book

>I also forgot to mention. I have never really been much of an avid reader. I can solve problems of very complex technical and mechanical problems with ease, but when it comes to reading I just get too distracted far too quickly. Iodine has given my brain this new dimension for enjoying reading. I am able to read any book now and enjoy it, as well as understand it! Understand: I haven't been able to enjoy sitting down and reading books for long periods for over 5 years. Every other aspect of my cognition has been wonderful. Iodine has not only given me back the gift to enjoy reading, but also boosted every other aspect of my cognition. I am simply in awe.

No harm in trying it, and seeing the reviews on amazon I think it's a very underrated supplement. I think it'd benefit people with thyroid issues.

How would I go about diluting such a solution to get the required dilution of something like this?

Should I use distilled water or something else?

Vitamin C works but dosage is key. For therapeutic effects one has to take 4+ grams at a time which is when it starts acting like an oxidant according to one of the worlds experts on vitamin C Thomas Levy. Vitamin C has most certainly found to prevent and cure the flu. It's been found to cure hepatitis and polio at the correct dosage lol. The few major studies done have used ridiculously low dosages which have really never ever been supported so they basically sabotaged the study from the start. Case in point the Mayo clinic study which was something like 250mg, that's what moneyocean is referring to. So I would say the above poster is really doesn't know the subject. Sodium ascorbate 4+ grams three times a day is what you'd want to take. If you want to know more about the literature on vitamin C "Curing the Incurable: Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins, 3rd by MD JD Thomas E Levy" is a great resource. Ascorbate and liposomal both reach the same concentrations liposomal keeps concentrations high in the blood about 50% longer, 4.5 hours vs 3 with standard ascorbate. Vitality C has a patented form where they claim to keep plasma concentrations up for 10 hours which means two dosages one morning one night and you are basically covered for 24 hours so that's the only one I personally would pay extra for otherwise just normal sodium ascorbate dosing 4+ grams at least three times a day would be the way to go. Aged garlic extract has also shown to be quite effective and, PEA (Palmitoylethanolamide) is so effective a study has recommended it as a flu shot alternative.

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.

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.

Sports Research Is on this list with an IFOS tag. They are without a doubt, hands down, the best bang for your buck, AND their fish oils are of triglyceride form, which means you're getting all the brain benefits as well.


I've been spending years trying to find the best fish oil for its price, and Sports Research has won. It's cheaper than all these more expensive products people have been mention, and is still very good quality.

Focusing on your health should be the first priority. Optimizing your normal hormone levels through the lessening of phytoestrogens, estrogen-mimics, and gluten(contains natural estrogens and lowers metabolism. I would eat more meat and take a multi-vitamin.

This will work fine and that is what I take. Vitamin E is a natural aromatase inhibitor and I take about 2000iu mixed tocopherols per day. Big boost in erectile quality and testosterone production. Zinc helps too as a T booster and an aromatase inhibitor.

Check this website to help with boosting testosterone.

If you are hell-bent on the PCT and pro-hormone, keep in mind that exogenous hormones can interfere with your natural production and as testosterone increases, so does estrogen through the aromatase enzyme. An aromatase inhibitor is almost always necessary when thinking about raising testosterone.

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.

For me the orotate seemed to do what it needed to in around 2 months after that it seemed the side effects weren't balanced out by the benefits. I've heard similar accounts from more than one person. I took it for around 2 months give or take, started with a quarter of a tab and worked up to a full tab since it made me feel pretty spaced out if I took too much. There aren't many brands out there the one I found (and was reccomended by others) was by Advanced Research. My goal in taking it was to decrease anxiety and to improve sleep though oddly it shouldn't be taken at night since it can keep you awake. And I say oddly here because it definitely has a calming effect but isn't the sleepy kind, I believe it worked with giving be better sleep. I now take it occasionally when I'm feeling anxious and it works as I take it much like magnesium does only with a different feeling.

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/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.

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.

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. :

Wow the other answers here are annoying. Here's a RELEVANT answer since it's a SUPPLEMENT: Ashwagandha.



Been taking on a regular basis for 4 years to help severe chronic health issues which include(d) some of the worst possible anxiety. I also used to have thyroid imbalance and terrible adrenal fatigue which disappeared with this supplement. I used to take 4 caps a day for years, but now I take about 2 a day and not every day. Happy to answer more if needed. Lots of info online. Generally, things that take a little longer to "kick in" are going to have more steady effects, so that you will still have benefit when no longer on the supplement, or if only taking sporadically. Ashwagandha often has mild immediate effects, but it's over a period of a few to several weeks that effects become really obvious and positive. Check out the reviews and search for "anxiety." Best wishes.

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.

I use a D3/K2 liquid from Thorne. That is a lot of D3 and K2 though, I'd be more comfortable taking a lower dose daily, but he's the doctor. Keep in mind that K is a blood clotting agent, so don't go adding large amounts without a lot of research.

As for magnesium, I recommend ionic, glycinate, or malate. 400mg per day is the recommended, but you can get your RBC Mag levels tested to see if you need to add it as a supplement. Most people are deficient.

Not sure about other brands, but this one worked for me.

Ever since I have started taking Ashwagandha (1 pill in morning and night), my sleep has improved a lot. I had a bad insomnia experience in the past. But now, no more grogginess in the morning, no anxiety, feels calm and relaxed.

You can also try adding one or two teaspoon turmeric powder to one cup warm milk and drink it before sleep. You can also add some sugar for taste.

Don't buy the pills, buy in bulk by the kilogram. The stuff is tasteless and dissolves easily.

I get this:

Yeah I've already been taking L-Citrulline DL-Malate 2:1 Powder by BulkSupplements | Speed Up Workout Recovery (500 grams) and Zinc is in ZMA which I take.

Amazon's always really bad about this. They'll invent MSRPs that never existed just to bring it down to normal prices so "you can save" 30% on basically everything always.

Also, consider installing a browser plugin to integrate CamelCamelCamel or something similar. They track Amazon prices across time. Example for the magnesium:

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.

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

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/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.

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.
