  1. Thank you for this very useful information. I am T2 diabetic and often have problem with energy. Sometimes I am so tired that I found it difficult to do things. I am 55 this year. What advice can you give in this direction?

  2. Where are the references for all these claims? And, isn’t calcium from greens, milk much better absorbed than calcium citrate?

    The latest consensus is that glucosamine/chondroitin do not help, in double-blind studies.

    Also, why is nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene not mentioned?

    Sorry to quench your fire but you really need references to support your claims. Not that these supplements aren’t helpful (glucosamine/chondroitin being questionable) there are many more that are more important to longevity than those listed here.
