The list members may be interested in several sources for specialized supplements. I have used these companies in the past and recently several of their products are aided me greatly in the recovery from an gall bladder operation. (It's now clear that "you can go back to work in two weeks" does NOT mean "you will be back to normal in two weeks". Basically once out of the hospital you are on your own. Being told "you are not 18 anymore somehow does not make me feel much better.)
I would HIGHLY recommend that if you use supplements you do so only under the advice of an orthomolecular physician!

A not so obvious source of nutritional supplements besides a good local health food store is your local sports nutrition store. There is a overlap of interests in the sports/body building and health improvement communities that most have not realized yet.
