Good Health is more than Vitamin D and cofactors – my view

Henry Lahore, age 69, admin of VitaminDWiki – what I actually do
Yes – if you take only a single supplement, it should be vitamin D
Updated April, 2018    Low cost cofactors for vitamin D - including what I take

Daily

  • Breakfast: Fruit then eat about 4 ounces of premixed cereal (with rice milk)
    Lecithin – about 1 teaspoon
    Granola
    Mixed nuts (especially almonds ) and dried fruits
    Cinnamon – about 1/4 teaspoon
    Sesame seeds (started Jan 2015)
  • Supplements
    Vitamin K2 LEF Super K (which has K1, K2-4, K2-7)
    Omega-3 by Vectomega
       this is FAR more powerful than regular Omega-3:1 capsule every 2nd day – one per day gave me a bleeding nose
    Silica for strong teeth and bones – Horsetail has fixed many cracked teeth over the decades - in cereal
    Boron for strong teeth and bones
  • When hungry drink water, if still hungry 20 minutes later then OK to eat. (very simple calorie restriction)

Nap

  • 30-minute nap currently. Generally around noon. Had been only 10 minutes long 4 decades ago
    I use a sleeping mask $7 which calms my eyes - similar to palming
    Nap in sun in summer sun (when available) with tan-thru shorts

Virtually no meats – unless organic meat

Lower back cushions for recliner and car

Sleep

  • Firm pillow – which eliminated my sore neck when I started using it about 5 years ago

Several times a week

Once every month or so for sore muscles

  • D-ribose – (chewable 1.5 grams) but rarely have sore muscles now with Vitamin D and Magnesium
  • Use Ultra-Blue MSM cream to relax the back-side of my sore legs if driving for > 5 hours a day
    Have been using this for 14+ years
  • Use Penetrex cream for sore muscles

Note: Decades ago I found that jogging/exercise did not take any time out of my day.
An hour of exercise every 2 days extended my time awake by 30 minutes each day.
