A conversation that was happening on another thread ("Are you burning fat?") made me wonder what vitamins/supplements other Beachers are taking. I take a "women's" multi and Omega 3 fish oil capsules (for depression as well as general health). In the past I've taken Tonalin CLA (conjugated linolenic acid) and green tea extract capsules, both on the advice of articles in women's magazines about weight loss, but they're both expensive and I never had proof that they helped. I also used to take those chewable chocolate calcium things (forgot the name--in the purple box) but quit when I realized how much sugar they have.
I also used to take a glucosamine-chondroitin supplement for joint health (at the ripe age of 28 I had started to have creaky knees) but then read that glucosamine is not recommended for diabetics--and although I am not diabetic I stopped taking it since I don't want anything messing with my blood sugar. Anyone know about this?
