I get a lot of questions regarding multivitamins and dietary supplements. Most all revolve around the following; do you take them? if so what brand? I’ve heard too much iron is bad, Zinc makes my stomach hurt, don’t we need calcium for strong bones? Most of these questions stem from tv commercials and the family doctor or personal trainer making the blanket statement “you should be taking a multivitamin” when asked to clarify most answer with “they are all about the same” or “I take such and such”.

Here is what Robb Wolf, Loren Cordain, and Michael Eades seem to agree on;

-Fish oil – click here for dosage

-Vitamin D3 – 2000-5000 IU per day depending on sun exposure

-Magnesium – at least the RDA of 400mg ( I take 1200mg of Natural Calm daily)

Those are the essentials i.e. we can’t get them from our daily life and food intake for reasons like soil depletion, availability of cold water fish, and geographical latitude.

Here are few others that I can take or leave depending on how I’m feeling.

-Digestive enzyme – some people have difficulty digesting a high protein, high fat diet and need some help until their gut catches up.

-R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA) if you are eating grass-fed or wild game odds are you don’t need it.    

For the most part everything else can and should be obtained through a clean paleo-ish diet. If you insist on taking a multivitamin Mark’s Daily Apple has a pretty comprehensive pill pack here,

As with everything health related I suggest you do as much research as you can and attempt to have an educated conversation with your Doc about it. Once you have made a choice on which way to go pay close attention to the way your body reacts and adjust accordingly.
