My goal is to feel good, not extend my life.

One of my buddies pops all kind of supplements and works out every day, sometimes 2 times a day. If a new supplement comes onto the market, he tries it. His goal is to live longer. By his own admission he has no idea why he takes all of the supplements he does as he knows they are probably not helping him.
You and I are on a similar path. I'm 52 and 14 years ago, I was forced to not only change my life but alter my outlook on health. I was so sick I couldn't walk 50 yards and multiple physicians couldn't even tell me what was wrong much less fix me. I had to learn it on my own. One thing I learned is that we are all the same, but we are different. That's another topic but I am professionally trained in medicine so I know the in's and out's of multivitamins. There are some I like better than others but usually, a one size fits all approach is not the best way to go. I can even tell you exactly what to eat to be healthy and it may be the wrong thing for you to eat. We are all the same, but we are different.

One thing I can say with confidence is that the scientific literature has been corrupted now for a number of years. We can't believe everything we read even if it is published in a respectable scientific journal. The water is so murky that what is right and what is wrong is often in question. It didn't used to be like that but it is today.
