Hi All...

We currently take Deflect, Polycal, Polyvite, the NAP Probiotic, and Vit B-12.  As well, I add Harmonia to my shakes and drink a glass of lemon juice and Proberry every day.  

I have been indulging in Live Cell, Fucus Plus, and giving my A Husband Hawthorn Plus.

I need to cut back on some of these due to budgetary reasons... so I'm thinking of letting go of the Live Cell, Fucus and Hawthorn Plus.

I would really like to keep going on the Harmonia and Proberry even though they are pricey!

Your comments and thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

i think what you are doing is a good idea. keep going on what you want most. take the others that don't fit in your budget as needed. for me i take probiotic on an empty stommach only, so if i eat a late dinner i don't take them. i have a pantothenic acid supplement and multivitamin supplement with aminos and enzymes that i only take with certain meals when i feel like i need the extra help digesting. so you might be able to still take all of them just pay attention when and what you need the most at your present time.

why don't you cut back on the dosage per day or take some every other day...so the bottles last longer

funkymuse,
You may find it useful to complete the online Supplement Determinator if you have not already done so or if you have not completed the survey for a long period.  

Our supplement needs may change over time, and the supplement recommendations may prove useful for you.

You can also check and compare the similar ingredients used in several of your recommended NAP formulas.  For instance, larch is used in Polyvite, Harmonia and several of the NAP supplements; therefore, you may want to consider alternating specific 'on and off' days or decrease the amount you are currently using on a daily basis to extend the NAP bottle life.

Well we take weekends off on our supp's so I figure that's enough and I take the minimum requirement of each supp as I want to get the full benefit.  I know some supp's need to build up in the system to be effective.  I would think the Fucus would be one of these.

And yes I did the Supplement Determinator and if I followed the advise there, I'd be ordering everything!    So I stick to the top recommendations only.

It is a nice supplement schedule that you and your husband have devised by giving yourselves a break from the supplements on the weekends.

It is a good meaure to take an one to two week break from herbal supplements so they do not lose their effectiveness in our bodies.

Many people do take multivitamins, minerals, probiotics, green food powders on a daily basis with no breaks.  This is an individual decision.
