Serious Supplement Program -Roger Mason
Here is a one page list of proven supplements everyone over the age of 40 should be taking. You can Xerox this and hand it out to your friends if you like. Anyone over 40 should be taking about 19 supplements, plus whatever hormones they need (see the hormone articles such as Balance Your Hormones). That may seem like a lot, but every one of these will improve your health and well being. Those under 40 only need eight supplements. Read the article Supplements for Younger People, and take All Your Minerals and Vitamins®, flax oil, beta glucan, acidophilus, vitamin D, vitamin E, and FOS. You can add glutamine if you wish. Health is real wealth. Without good health you have nothing. Diet and lifestyle are everything. A wholesome low fat, high fiber diet of whole grains and natural foods is central. People are all too willing to shell out hundreds of dollars for toxic prescription drugs that just make their health worse, but balk at paying a hundred dollars a month for natural supplements to help them live longer and better. Instead of paying extortionate prices for an after-the-fact health “insurance” program, spend $100 a month on the following supplements. Here, an ounce of prevention is worth ten pounds of cure.
