Any natural supplements?

Does anyone recommend any supplements?
Currently taking dong quai, chaste tree berry, and selenium. Are there any I am missing?

  • I take a bunch of supplements, all ok'd by my RE and RI. Ubiquinol (advanced active CoQ10), L-Arginine, Vit D, Vit C, Fish Oil, Myo-Inositol, and a PNV. I'm sure my RI will be adding Calcium Citrate to the mix as well.
