Recommended daily supplements:
[If I am not your doctor, it is important you consult with your medical provider regarding any supplement recommendations]
1.Vitamin D3 4000 IU with food, if not an Coumadin can also take with K2. I use at D3 of 5000 IU with K2 45 mcg.
2. Vitamin C 500 mg twice daily
3. Zinc 40 mg daily
4. Magnesium 200-400 mg once or twice daily
Make sure to have adequate iodine in your diet via regular sea vegetable intake or the use of iodized salt in moderation or supplementation via iodine drops. Prolonged high dosing of iodine can affect thyroid function. I use Mary Ruth’s Vegan Pure Iodine 2 drops ( 250 mcg ) daily.
Can also consider adding NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) 600 mg twice daily
Melatonin .3-3 mg nightly (especially if struggling with sleep)
