Am I the only one?
I don't know of anyone else currently ingesting and investing in as many high-end supplements as myself.
I'm a 59 year old male. Believe it or not, I have truly been into supplements for 55 years, virtually nonstop. Starting with the very popular "Homocebrin" liquid multivitamin syrup in the mid 1950's. I used to sneak into the fridge and drink it right out of the bottle. It was so sweet and delicious, I couldn't help but megadose it, while too young to realize I was doing so, or what I had started.
Then in 1965, the lady who ran a pet store near our house introduced me to the line of Shaklee supplements that she sold on the side, and I started buying them with my grass cutting money. That included brewer's yeast, multi vitamins and minerals, etc.
In 1968 a very unusual new friend introduced me to megadosing vitamin C, and I got hooked on health and longevity supplementation strategies. He was older than me, and was a grad student at Washington University in St. Louis specializing in neuroendicrinology research.
He got me reading more books on vitamins, etc, including Adelle Davis. He was already studying supplements as sort of a hobby, and experimenting with all kinds of supplement products. I was kind of his guinea pig since I pretty much matched everything he was taking and experimenting with.
My father was also into health foods, and we visited our nearest heath food store regularly, trying all sorts of foods and products, including eating a lot of wheat bran and whole grains, etc.
By 1971 I became a strict vegetarian, and got into more and more supplements. I remained a vegetarian for 23 years.
Depending on my income, I got into herbs and superfoods in a big way during the various periods in my life that I could afford to do so.
Then I got deeply into the longevity movement, following Dirk Pearson and Sandy Shaw's path and formulation.
Over the past few years, I have been on a very complex, steadily evolving regimen, using quite expensive high end supplements and superfoods.
Just for my vitamin C, I take 4 different products, mostly food-based.
For the past 20 months I have also very successfully been taking Green Vibrance, with has over 60 top-end ingredients. Even though I have always had more than sufficient levels of nutrients, Green Vibrance had a very noticeable effect on my health and vitality. I've gotten 2 of my friends on it, and they both regularly report to me how much they love it and how healthy they've become.
My daily mix now includes 12 different herbal products,mostly from the top-end company, Gaia Herbs, which I believe has the highest quality line of herbs. I shop at Whole Foods mostly.
I'd love to compare notes with you or anyone else who are into serious supplemetation. I feel that I may be the only person with You can contact by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
