    Hey Rip,

    I was wondering what supplements you take on the daily.

    Personally, I take:
    Vitamin D
    Vitamin C
    Multivitamin w/ Iron
    Fish Oil
    Creatine

    Also one more question. If you take Vitamin D, how much of it do you take? Iíve heard some people talk about going over the recommendations of many boards, some saying more than 25,000 IUs is optimal.

    I take 1-2 grams of C, a good multiple, 10K of D, ferrous gluconate, K citrate, cod liver oil, and a 81mg aspirin.

    NAC sales were also banned during covid just like ivermectin; tells me all I need to know. Also, my breathing has never been better.
