    - A multivitamin
    - Vitamin K2 - an important nutrient, especially for skeletal development, that even paleo diehards are lacking, because of intensive agriculture. Literally everyone is drastically deficient, most have been deficient for at least 500 years.
    - Butter Oil combined with Fermented Cod Liver Oil - to get Vitamin A in a natural, balanced way, as well as Omega 3's.
    - A pill with zinc, B-vitamins, Iodine, and some other weird shit that comes along for the ride - because I don't get enough from my diet and I think I need extra due to modern life blinding my 3rd eye (what)
    - Vitamin C - preventive measure against sickness.
    - Magnesium
    - Vitamin D - since I'm not in the sun enough.

    Vitamin K2, Magnesium, Vitamin D, and Calcium are all supposed to work together in a balance. While eating "organic" vegetables will supply you with plenty of magnesium, it won't be properly used without the others, leaving you functionally deficient. Now that I know about this, I'm loading myself up with all this stuff. Eventually I think I will only have to take the Vitamin K2 along with a good diet, but for now I'm dosing everything pretty hard.

    Also various nutrients basically block each other's absorption. This isn't really a concern when you get the nutrients from real food, but when you take nutrients all at once in a fistful of pills at breakfast you could be wasting a lot of it, especially if you have caffeine in your system)

    My schedule, fine-tuned so that nothing blocks anything else too badly:
    Wakeup: Vit K2, Vit D, Magnesium
    Midday: The Zinc & B-vitamins pill, The butter oil and cod liver oil, Magnesium, Vit D
    Before bed: Vit K2, Vit C, Magnesium


    I don't know what specifically is doing what, but I notice a big difference when I'm taking all this compared to when I'm not.

    You notice a big difference like more energy, better mood, better sleep?

    All of the above! Makes me smarter too, maybe because of better sleep, or maybe something more direct.

    I just tried a week without it all to see if the effects were real. They are real!

    We actually take our shirts off and lay out by the planes if it's not too hot.. Also up on the roof of the Ops Center by the satcom dishes.

    The Weston Price website and some guy named Chris Masterjohn have some very detailed articles about it all. There's also a book called Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox or something like that, which looks like a good presentation of it all.

    There's two kinds of K2, MK-4 and MK-7. MK-4 is the kind which animal foods used to contain lots of, and it's definitely the important one. MK-7 is from fermented foods, especially natto (fermented soy) - it's good but it's not worth the estrogen. MK-4 is the key.

    The Price book is what got me into the paleo stuff in the beginning. I probably do need to do something like that. What animals contain K2? Think 100% grass-fed beef would have it?

    Egg yolks, pasture-raised butter, organ meat are all sources of MK-4. The problem is that even a really good paleo diet, organic, grass-fed, etc is lower in K2 than what we're designed for. To have a high K2 content the animals/eggs/butter/whatever have to be raised on pretty untouched pasture, which is very rare of course. As far as I know you just have to take a pill.

    I eat a fair number of eggs from my ducks that I rotate through the yard and they stay on pretty decent grass. I do give them some of the omega-3 feed, but yeah, probably low on K2. I go through phases where I eat liver for a week and then not for a while. Ok, I probably need to supplement it. Damnit.

    I mean you're probably way higher in K2 than most are though, not bad!

    If it's K1, which it probably is, be aware that the body can sort of convert it to K2, but not very well.

    It is probably whatever is cheapest to produce. But, it is one of those foo-foo expensive damn "natural" vitamins, so it might be the good stuff.

    Latitude is lousy at predicting exact weather patterns, especially temperature, but it does a great job estimating average UV index.

    A person's ideal UV exposure can roughly be determined by the median latitude of their ancestors. This has some rough implications, the average US citizen (mean population center as Missouri) is exposed to UV index levels higher than that of the Mediterranean.

    Looking at northwestern Poland vs Istanbul explains a lot for me.

    Ugh. America is disgusting. I am just barely in the technically human habitation range here in Oregon, but there's a reason the East and California have degenerated - UV exposure in those ranges well known to cause homosexuality (C.F. the "Sotadic Zone" of Richard Burton).

    Laid out for an hour after work on Tuesday, half an hour each side, only olive oil for lotion. Tan like Cherokee with no noticeable burning.

    Sun life is the best life. I am actually embarrassed that I lived my entire life up to now without reaping the benefits of daily tanning. Sunning is like lifting, guys think that doing a manual job is like working out, but it almost never gives the same benefits. Same with being outside working with clothes on, the benefits can't compare with nearly nude sun-worship.

    make sure you're getting omega 3's and K2 (most important) so you don't get wrinkled though! 90 year old polynesians had tighter skin than 50 year olds today.

    Going for a walk shirtless in the evening and watching your own shadow's lovehandles jiggle with every step you take is blackpill.
