Supplement My Life

20 Jan

Twenty days into the month, and I have 19 posts in a row.  Though an ambulance ride trip to the ER have put me super-behind for school/R&R.  Maybe more on that later–which reminds me there was another subject I said I’d write about later also, but I’ve forgotten.  So I’ll have to remember to see the headers on my last 3 posts to see what I’m supposed to be writing about–I’m all over the place without a day of relaxation/productive weekend.  Anyway, here are some vitamins and supplements and what they do.  Which, I would NOT normally spend a bunch of money on something that may or may not do anything, but the Grocery Outlet always carries a bunch of these for cheap.  Anyway, now I’m late for my shower, so here’s the list:
