supplementary
I am 74 years- male. I am on a very high level of fitness. Gym 3 times a week.
Running and squash. High level of sweating at gym.
I take Procydin and garlic as anti-oxidant supplements and calcium and zinc.
Could you inform me which on single pill/capsule covers the above plus the necessary vitamins and minerals for me at this stage instead of all the various pills mentioned. Many thanks. Pedro.

Dear Pedro
Congratulations for being such an active and healthy 74-year-old. You can take a complete vitamin and mineral supplement such as Centrum or Supradyn Forte which will provide more or less all the vitamins and minerals including the calcium and zinc. The Procydin and garlic will however have to be taken separately as they are not usually included with the other supplements.
Keep up the good work.
Best regards
