To "supplement" m
eans to add something to something, and doesn't say whether that something is natural or good, or synthetic or bad. You should try to get as much of the nutrients you need from food and super-foods, but only you can be the judge of when even a synthetic nutritional supplement would be better for where your health is at the time.

Super-Food Supplements
Things that preferably should be eaten as food, but are rich enough in nutrients that it is worth it to take them as supplements if you cannot get them from the source.
Blue-green Algae
This is the green scum that you see on the top of ponds. If you're not ready to eat pond scum, it can be bought as a powder and added to foods.
Bone Meal
Bone broth would be better but if you don't make bone broth, take bone meal in a pill. Balance it with other minerals, especially magnesium. Powdered dolomite is often take with bone meal to balance the excess calcium in bonemeal.
Brewers or Nutritional Yeast
Good source of protein and B vitamins. Tastes great on popcorn.
Cod Liver Oil
Take 1000 i.u. a day if you don't have the opportunity to eat raw fish liver every day.
Edible Clay
A source of minerals

Unless you are able to get kelp or other sea vegetables in your diet, take in either pill or
powdered form as a supplement.
Rose hips
Virgin Coconut Oil

A super-food that provides energy and keeps everything else running smoothly. Can be eaten as a food or as a supplement. Put a spoonful in a cup of hot drink in the morning.

Wheat germ oil
A source of vitamin E.

Non-SuperFood Supplements that are Nourishing
Vitamin C
Take at least 1 gram a day, 5 grams would be better. Vitamin C can be taken as either pills or in powdered form. If taking vitamin C as powdered ascorbic acid, add some bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) or other mixed minerals to the ascorbic acid and mix with honey and liquid to drink, or take the extra minerals on the side. Vitamin C can be made by brewing your own fermented beverages at home and drinking them after they have fermented for 3-5 days rather than bottling and storing them. Even then, vitamin C is hard to get enough of, so supplementation is worthwhile..
Betaine HCl
Take with meals, especially meat. If you get heartburn from taking HCl, then you have enough acid in your stomach and don't need to take it or need to take less. Foam in the urine is an indicator that Betaine HCl would be good for you (too much undigested protein).
Digestive enzymes
Such as papaya and bromelain to help digest food. Good food digestion will help with all other functions in the body.
Lack of iodine will cause tiredness. To test for iodine deficiency, put some Lugol's solution of iodine somewhere on your skin and let it sit there for a day. If it has been absorbed into the skin and disappeared by the next day then you need to supplement with iodine or kelp, or you can continue rubbing the iodine on the skin until it stays there and does not absorb, the body taking what it needs and leaving the rest.
Is a mineral that is needed by the heart, a muscle that always has to keep working. Magnesium is one of the few non-superfood supplements that someone on a healthy diet may need to supplement. Take magnesium if you have an erratic heartbeat, high blood pressure or muscle cramps. Other symptoms of magnesium deficiency are irritability and urinary incontinence. . See magnesium to learn about different types of magnesium and their primary sources.
Vitamin E
400 i.u. - 1,000 i.u. per day.
Co-Enzyme Q10
The body is able to make its own Q10 so, in theory, you shouldn't need it if you're on a healthy diet you shouldn't need to supplement it. Its other name is "ubiquinone", because it's supposed to be ubiquitous -- "everywhere". But since whenever I try to cut it out of my supplement regime I feel the worse for it and have to start taking it again, I include it here.
Poor Diet Recovery Supplements -- when you have been eating poorly for years/all your life and/or have nutritional deficiency diseases, this is a checklist of the type of supplements you may want to start off with.
