Hey all, hoping some of you kind folks out there can give me your thoughts and input on my DIY recipe (link below). Any feedback on ingredients not mixing well together or nutrients being out of whack / not very well absorbed, please let me know!
I’ve left the sources out at the moment mainly because I’m still tweaking them to find the cheapest; but it will be primarily Amazon & iHerb. I’ve tried to keep it low on ingredients that can cause stomach issues, that’s the reason for limiting oats and avoiding whey. Double cream despite having a small amount of lactose shouldn’t really cause problems for anyone (but there are lactose-free double creams on the market, so that’s always an option).
Everything else is as close to organic as I can get (trying to create a functional, less time intensive, paleo-esque-type shake); several of the ingredients offer anti-microbial, anti-fungal or anti-bacterial properties and should be quite anti-inflammatory overall.
Used this thread to get as close to the ‘optimal ratios’ as possible, bit out on a couple of things like iron:copper and phos:calcium, but I’m hoping they’re balanced fairly well anyway!
Other things to note:
- Fish oil capsule will be included for Omega-3 DHA/EPA as most are from ALA in the recipe.
- Selenium and B3 standalone vitamins should also be added for anyone using this as 100% replacement.
- May be other better multivitamins out there, but this one is ideal for anyone not looking for pre-formed vitamin A (pregnant females / people on Accutane etc.)
