Hey, what supplements/herbs/vitamins are you all taking, if you don't mind telling? Going to give grapeseed extract a try...

I buy a few supplements for specific reasons (lutein for eyesight) but I don't rely on them or take them for very long. Nothing has proved any positive effects on my energy level or blood test results; in fact, last year my calcium was really high so I just dumped the supplements with it. I focus on good quality simple diet without meat and cheese and try to follow the principles of the blue zone diet on a regular basis. Now that I'm older I feel I can focus on proper food selection and preparation again. I'm going to reread this guy's book. This article addresses "supplements," a multibillion dollar industry.

Rant on - this Darth Vader boot weights about 80 lbs at the end of the day. I've been going to be early just so I can take it off. Rant off

Just remembered the first GOP candidate debate is tonight. Hope they have enough chairs, lol. I've got to run out and get popcorn and beer.

I think they had to split it up into two debates. The early bird one is for those candidates who didn't make it into the biggy. I will only watch the second one to see how much of a fool Mr. Trump can look like. It should be interesting.
