(Updated 5 February 2023)
A good diet of healthy foods can be augmented by purchasing dietary supplements which provide additional vitamins, minerals, herbal extracts, and antioxidants.
I have been taking large doses of dietary supplements since 1982, and modifying the doses as I learn more, in my ongoing self-experimentation program.
Note: Optimal supplement dose probably varies with age, weight, gender, and genetic background, as well as the foods eaten. I am a male, 140 lb, born in the 1950's.

Additional Information:

I have compiled a detailed, 30-page report, "Nutrition, Diet, and Supplements for Peak Physical & Mental Performance." In it, Detailed descriptions are provided for each ingredient, with references to a bibliography of 40 books and journal articles. It also lists reasonably-priced sources of quality ingredients, suggests how to mix them, and the best times of day to take them. Additional information is provided on proteins, amino acids, fats, carbohydrates, and hormones. [ Click here to view the PDF. ==> furbernutrition.pdf ]

The Linus Pauling Institute Micronutrient Information Center is a very comprehensive and reliable source of information.
