My suggestion would be none.  There is some supporting evidence of this too...

Damn Bill.   Just when I was starting to figure out what I wanted to take, you throw a wrench in it.   LOL

As a person grows old they need lots and lots of calcium intake..  :up:
I think that's what you need, Calcium. Since you are drinking coffee it will inhibit calcium absorption.

Thanks for the tip. I have had 15 kidney stones. I really don't want anymore calcium. Lol

But, I did buy some vitamins. I bought Centrum for men under 50. I have been taking them for about a week now.  I do think I have more energy, but it may be too soon to notice anything.

I do Randy.   Doctors said that my body produces too much calcium.   Good news is though that I have only had 1 in the last 9 years.   That's a good sign that it's slowing down.

There are plenty of pros and cons to vitamins.  The obvious first answer is we should be getting everything from our diet and not have to take vitamins or supplements.  While I certainly agree with this, it's not always possible.

There's also the idea that supplements help boost or prevent certain things at a higher dosage than we'd get from our food.

Supplements I take:
Krill Oil - Omega 3, and how they're put together make it easier to absorb than fish oil.  I switched to this from fish oil because I was having trouble taking the fish oil pills (slight indigestion, fish burps) and these don't bother me at all.  I would avoid these if you have sensitivities to shellfish as there's potential for it in krill oil.

Green Tea Extract - Piles of goodness in green tea.  Antioxidant, anti-cancer, anti-aging, etc.  You can get this in caffeine free pills as well.

Garlic Extract - cholesterol management, anti-oxidant, immune system, etc.

B-100 - Vitamin B multivitamin - healthy nervous system, energy, digestion, etc.  Word of warning, taking this will turn your urine fluorescent (completely natural as our body is only able to store B12 for any amount of time, so the rest is washed out of the system).  Not bad, just surprising at first.

Alpha Lipoic Acid - potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger that has been proven to regenerate Vitamin C and Vitamin E, restore levels of intracellular glutathione (an important antioxidant that declines with age) and increase excretion of toxic heavy metals such as mercury.  Also has the benefit of helping your body by storing excess carbohydrates in muscle or liver instead of in fat cells.

Potassium - This helps maintain water balance, among other things, but this is the primary reason I take it.

Magnesium - Variety of benefits, but I also take it because it helps the body absorb the potassium

Glucosamine & Chondroiton. I use it for my joints and it helps.

Carlson's Orange Flavor Fish Oil (high concentration of Omega 3, EPA and DHA and no fish burps). 2 Tbl a day. Cuts down on inflammation. My body really feels it when I go through periods of not taking fish oil.

These are really the only things I take.

Other suggestions would be:

-Stop the soda.

-Like everyone else said, more water.

-Avoid processed carbohydrates (they spike insulin and promote inflammation).

-Do some basic strength training. Getting stronger eliminates a lot of the aches and pains. Stick to compound (multi-joint) movements: Bodyweight squats, push-ups, pull-ups.

So just buy any Glucosamine and Chondroiton brand and about both of them.  I really have a problem taking big pills.   Are any of these big pills and by big, I mean anything over the size of a multi-vitamin.
