Supplements that rock!

Believe me, working in a health food and supplement store, People come in with some crazy requests.  Also, with all the bias-brands-game that gets played by the media, and one's own experience, price-range, or preference, we may have perfectly good vitamin D, but it is rejected because of its perfectly good brand.  So all this makes for rows and rows of bottles, boxes, tinctures, and capsules in our store.  Which one is the best?  Moreover, which one works?  With some of our regulars, we can get a good idea of what works, what doesn't, what any possible objections may be, (pills are too big; smelled like fish; tastes bitter; etc,) and what other's open judgment may be.  Researching products, health, and the body for nearly 2 years now... I have founds some duds, and some dandies.  Wanting, in my career, to help others struggling with health, I thought I'd compile a few of those here with links directly to the source.
All of these supplements can be found in the store where I work.
