Copper is a trace element, that is often overlooked. People who got a deficiency or at least an insufficiency, should supplement. Even more than for example magnesium, the proper compound is important for copper supplementation. Copper-glycinate is the best choice. Copper oxide from cheap multi-vitamin formulas should be avoided.

Aim to supplement around 300mg a day. The most cost effective way of supplementing magnesium is purchasing magnesium citrate powder.

If you still want to go with capsules you can try those. But since the dose is rather strong, it could have an laxative effect.

Magnesium 500mg (120 cap.)


A well-known grape seed extract product with a potent dosage, that also has a little rutin added as a beneficial companion. Two capsules amount to 500mg grape seed extract and approx. 200mg of OPC.

Protein powder

Some vegans have trouble to include the needed amount of protein into their diet. Proteins play a huge part in our health because the vast majority of our immune system and collagen (connective tissue) consists of proteins. Vegans can easily boost their intake with protein powder derived from rice.

Psyllium husks

Psyllium husks are a great way to soften up your stool and maintaining a clean intestine. They should be taken shortly before or shortly after a meal. One teaspoon applied to a glas of water is sufficient. This must be followed by drinking a full glass of water. The stool-softening effect sets in within 2 to 3 days. If possible, psyllium husks should be consumed at different times from other dietary supplements.

Vitamin C

If you want to go for the whole-food vitamin C, try this brand. It is vitamin C derived from the acerola cherry. The description reads to take one teaspoon a day, but half a teaspoon is easily enough to satisfy your daily needs.

Aceroly cherry powder (4 oz)

If you choose synthetic version, you can take this one. But if you choose to supplement vitamin C, I’d recommend to go with the natural acerola above.

Vitamin C 1,000mg (250 cap.)

Vitamin D

This supplement is offering vitamin D in the form of drops. I prefer this, because it gets easily absorbed in the mouth already. Just grab a spoon, put the desired amount of drops on it and swallow it. You should definitely choose this one, if you have chronic diseases of the intestine. This product provides 2,000 IU per drop. So if you want to take 5,000 IU a day, just alternate 4,000 IU on one day and 6,000 IU on the second day. It doesn’t make a difference.

Vitamin D drops 2,000 IU (900 drops)

If you, however, fancy taking vitamin D as a pill, you can resort to this one, delivering 5,000 IU each:

Vitamin D 5,000 IU (240 softgels)

Vitamin E

This product scores with alpha-tocopherol and a decent amount of all four tocotrienols, derived from red palm oil.

Vitamin E complex (60 softgels)

Vitamin K2

This is Vitamin K2 MK-7, that is much more bio-active than K2 MK-4. If you are keen on optimal bone metabolism, this supplement is a must.

VItamin K2 100mcg (60 cap.)


A zinc cream to treat eczema and sore skin:

Zinc cream (1 oz)

Zinc + copper capsules to correct a zinc deficiency. With this zinc supplement, that has some of zinc’s antagonist copper added, you prevent sliding into a copper deficiency while bringing up your zinc.

Take two capsules a day for 30mg zinc and 2mg copper for two weeks, then switch to one capsule a day.

Zinc 15mg, copper 1mg (100 cap.)
