Default Supplements - Natural or Otherwise

Do you guys take any supplements as part of your daily regime, and if so, why? Medications for ailments are obvious and don't really count, the question is more of a "what do you choose to take" kind of thing.

Fish oil, a multi-vitamin, iron, vitamin B3, cranberry pill and uh... I forget what else XD

Mainly cause I suck at eating, and was strongly suggested by doctor in hopes of relieving some symptoms and putting back what medications make me lose out on.

I theoretically take a children's multi-vitamin every day, but I'm terrible about it. I need the iron in it, and would have gotten an adult multi-vitamin, but none of the ones at Target had iron when I was there, and the iron only pills had 400% of your daily recommended iron, which I didn't need.

I do a joint supplement, calcium + Vitamin D, and Vitamin C. I've considered a few other things, like zinc, but I have heard a lot of people say they feel ill taking zinc and I don't really need any help feeling ill frequently. =P

CoEnzyme Q10, FGen20Plus, SeaVeg, krill oil and a high potency B complex. And, don't laugh -- Natural Curves, not for their advertised effect, which is BS, but because it's the best combo of female supporting herbs I've found. No PMS, no cramps, nothing. I wish I'd had them YEARS ago.

I've only ever taken iron, cranberry and a multivitamin, but getting into pet supplements has in turn made me look into supplementing for myself more, as well (especially because I can get great human supplements for cheap from work). Looking at starting Gingko/Ginseng, B-Complex and an immune-boosting blend of herbs. I thought all of those supplements might be getting a bit extreme, but I see I'm in good company.
