    Vitamin Schedule for my 55 year old Father - Help Please

    Hello,

    My father has complained of lack of energy, mood, overall wellbeing and a concern about aging. He is 55 years old, convinced of eating very lightly for long life and regularly goes to the gym in the evenings. English is not his first language so research is very confusing for him.

    I advised him to purchase a cabinet full of supplements, but truthfully I don't know what I am doing and need advice.

    Here's the list:

    Qunol Mega CoQ10 Dietary Supplement Ubiquinol
    Folic Acid - Nature Made
    Triple Omega - Nature Made
    Magnesium - Nature Made
    Super B Complex - Nature Made
    Centrum Silver
    Sam-e - Nature Made
    5-HTP - Natrol


    I don't know if these overlap, or are dangerous to take together. Or if I've completely left out important vitamins. He's also asked me for the best time of day for each.
    The best schedule I could figure out was:
    Wake up - Ubiquinol, Sam-e
    After breakfast with protein - Multi, B Complex, Folic, Triple Omega
    Before bed - Magnesium, 5-htp

    He wakes up each morning and goes for a walk, but once he's back home he says he feels an incredible weakness.

    Thank you very much for any advice. I am very willing to listen and send him to the customer service line to do returns.

    Has he had his Vitamin D level checked?
