    B-12 Injections - avail at your docs office or maybe a Naturopath. My Naturopath recommends full B complex, not just B12 and to inject in buttocks rather than arm for better absorption.

    - can help with fatigue and nerve pain. Doesn't always help everyone, but some people have noticeable benefit.


    Armour Thyroid - avail at pharmacy I hear. I think that one is by rx.

    - can help improve thyroid functioning and therefore increase energy and body temp.


    DHEA - I don't take this but have heard good things. Someone I know here in Canada said helped her tremendously [with energy and cognition I think?]. She purchased a very specific high quality brand from the US -- maybe a Teitelbaum recommendation. I'm not sure.


    Adrenal Prep - I get something from my Naturopath to support adrenals.


    CO Q10 - Health food store, or in my case from my Naturopath.

    - is a powerful antioxidant, supposed to help with energy production in the cells cause is needed by the mitochondria, if I remember correctly. I don't notice an amazing difference, but I take it anyway. My fatigue is not greatly improved, but I haven't had a cold or flu in a awhile, so maybe my supplements are helping.
    and

    Transer Factor
    Phytisone - don't know this one.


    Others will be able to give you more info, or you can use the search feature for each item.

    Have a nice day!
