Supplements I Take

I did a lot of research before I started taking any supplements or vitamins. At 58, I have different needs than when I was 38. I also have high cholesterol and high blood pressure, so I wanted something that would help in those areas as well.

*Magnesium Oxide, for heart health. 1 400 mg capsule per day.
*Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM, for heart, joint and muscle health. I buy theVitamin Shoppe Specialty combination that has 500 mg Glucosamine, 400 mg Chondroitin, and 500 mg MSM, a bottle of 360 capsules. I take 3 capsules per day.
*L-arginine, for heart, muscle and sexual performance. 3 500 mg capsules per day.
*Maca, for testosterone and sexual health (weight control, energy). 1 500 mg. capsule per day.
*Omega 3 Fish Oil (300 EPA/ 200 DHA) for blood and heart health. 2 1000 mg soft gels per day.
*ONe Daily Men’s 50 theVitamin Shoppe multivitamin supplement. 1 per day.
*Tribulus Terrestris Extract for testosterone and sexual health (weight control, energy) 1 625 mg capsule 3-4 times per week. (This product may cause headaches or sweating).

These are very helpful and have increased my energy and help me with weight control around my midsection. The energy and other effects have improved my physical exercise and sexual health.

I either swallow these with coconut milk (Silk) or I make a shake or smoothie emptying the capsules into the shake. I still have to swallow the Fish Oil and Multivitamin. Below is my recipe that includes two other supplements that have great health benefits. I will write more on the benefits later. I just wanted to get these out in from of you for now.

I start with a Ninja Tumbler that holds 2 cups. I fill it 3/4 with crushed ice. I empty all my capsules onto the ice. I put one scoop of body strong 100% Egg Protein and one scoop of Magic Matcha Green Tea (scoops provided in products). I then pour Silk Coconut Milk (unsweetened) until almost full and add 1 tablespoon of local honey for sweetener. I blend until thoroughly mixed and the mixture is a smooth shake. I drink it and use it to take the fish oil and multivitamin.

I am going to begin the blogging

I will begin now. I opened this account and made my first post last year. As with many, I was very excited and enthusiastic about blogging, until I got started. Blogging is a real commitment, but you also have to have something worth writing and being read.

I believe what I will be writing will be worth writing and being read. I am 58 now. I am active and want to continue being active. I am a triathlete, a 1/2 marathoner, an endurance cyclist, a backpacker, a scuba diver, a RVer, and a vacationer. Along with this I have grandchildren, teach High School English and am a director of a nonprofit organization.

I want to be able to continue to be active with a high quality of life–physically, emotionally, psychologically and sexually. I will write about the training I do, the supplements I use, the deals I find and the products I use. I will let you know of great places to go for all these activities and how you will be able to stay healthy for them with a busy schedule that limits the time you have. Right now, I ride my road bicycle when I am able, run when I can and swim at the YMCA at 5:00 a.m. before I go to work at school. It’s all about time management, moderation concerning food and beverage, and use of proven supplements.

I will blog on a consistent basis beginning today.
