Vitamin C
And while you’re checking your supplements, ensure that your Vitamin C is a form called Calcium Ascorbate. This is not Calcium; this is a buffered Vitamin C.

Vitamin B5
Pantothenic acid helps turn carbohydrates and fats into usable energy and improves your ability to respond to stress by supporting your adrenal glands. Fatigue, listlessness, numbness and tingling or burning pain in the feet are all indications that you may need more vitamin B5 in your diet.

People are always talking about getting enough Calcium but did you know that an excessive amount of poor quality protein promotes calcium loss. Yes really. Get your calcium sources from seed butter, arugula, kale, collards, seaweed, canned salmon. You can also get it from supplements. If you’re already taking them, have a look at the ingredient list and look at the form for Calcium. It is not being maximally absorbed if it is Calcium Gluconate, Carbonate, Dolomite, Phosphate or most common, Calcium Citrate. Calcium Asparginate is a great form of Calcium.
