4 Supplements We Recommend!


The world of supplements to be an unregulated dark and scary place filled with mysterious and sometimes worthless items, but once in a while we stumble upon a hidden gem!


Fish Oil

  • Why it’s important
    • It is an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty acids, which are an essential fatty acid with anti-inflammatory properties, thus lowering the effects of whole body inflammation.
    • We need Omega 3’s to combat the massive amounts of Omega 6 (pro-inflammatory) available to us in the western world.
    • Omega 3’s have been shown to significantly reduce cardiovascular disease
    • Do not use a flax supplement or any other plant based supplement for your Omega 3’s as plant based Omega 3’s come in the form of ALA, which our body cannot use and must convert to the usable form of EPA/DHA.  We are terribly inefficient at converting this and most is wasted in the process.
    • Take more fish oil if you are sick or just starting a Paleo diet (ie 2+g) and less if you are healthy and not inflamed (ie 1g)
    • Our favorite brands are Original Nutritionals Fish Oil and SFH Fish Oil. If you eat fish 3x a week or more then you probably won’t need to supplement.  Just make sure that the fish is wild caught and not farm raised.

Vitamin D

  • Why it’s important
    • Vitamin D is important in combating autoimmune issues, Diabetes (type I and II), bone health, promoting calcium absorption in the gut, reducing inflammation and many more functions.
    • The best place to get it is from the sun and if you cannot be out in the sun for at least 20 minutes a day it would be wise to supplement with Vitamin D.
    • Use about 1000 IU a day


  • Why it’s important
    • Magnesium helps maintain muscle and nerve function, bone health, it supports the immune system.
    • it calms the nerves and  relaxes the muscles allowing most people to overcome many different sleep issues.  We’ve seen quite a few people stop taking sleep aids when supplementing with Magnesium.
    • We start off with 0.5g right before bed then each week increase by a half a gram until you’ve reached 2g.  The reason we like to ease into this is, because Magnesium is a diuretic and if you take too much too soon you will be in and out of the restroom more often than you would like!
    • The natural way to get extra Magnesium is from green veggies as the center of the Chlorophyll molecule contains Magnesium
    • Our favorite supplement for Magnesium is Natural Calm.

Protein Powder

  • We’re not huge fan’s of liquid nutrition, because of the glycemic load exhibited by it.  We would rather people eat Sweet Potatoes for recovery and some chicken breast or any other solid protein.
  • If you must take a protein powder, because we lead busy lives then we would suggest two brands of protein:
    • Gnarly Nutrition Whey (Use code STONEAGE for a discount)
      • Antibiotic free, Grass fed, Grass finished cows
      • It contains many recovery agents (ie BCAAs( It also contains Prebiotics (Soluble Fiber) and Probiotics.

Look for our next blog post on a few other key supplements!  We know it’s crazy talk that you don’t need to visit GNC 14 times a week to pick up 26 different types of supplements and you don’t need that extra trip to Home Depot to pick up a reinforced shelf to hold the massive amounts of pills required by “conventional nutritional wisdom”.
