It's much more tolerable when it looks pretty in a wine glass, and water makes a BIG difference!
My three like theirs with a splash of chai, lol. If I drizzle raw honey on the bottom of the bowl Tallulah will drink the Essiac straight to get to the honey . . . Mean of me Kharma tips the Essiac out and goes straight to the honey. Bimmer walks away.

I usually just throw back 3 oz. like a shot.

All the vitamins/ supplements I'm on were prescriptions, lol
The vitamins I'm on are A, D, E, K, and an extra D. Also on Calicum.

Updating my own thread.

For two weeks I've been on the following:

GinkgoGin, a liquid Ginkgo Biloba/Ginseng combo
B-Complex twice a day, at my psychotherapist's recommendation
and a multivitamin just to round things out.

The top three are new, and make a HUGE difference. Especially the B-complex.

The only thing I take daily besides my allergy pill is melatonin. I am notoriously horrible at remembering to take meds/supplements. But for some reason I can remember to take those two.

I try to eat as healthy as possible so I don't take vitamines.
If I feel I'm getting sick I'll take some vit.C.

I do take allergie meds on a daily basis, which annoys me, because it's not good for my liver =/ I have a dustmite allergie though so I'm ALWAYS stuffy at night if I don't

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

I don't take any kind of vitamin/supplement...don't feel the need to. Mike, however, takes glucosamine as he has had hip surgery, and he also takes a multi-vitamin, because, and I quote, he eats like a poor male college student. LOL
