    Supplement Swap: Have extra supps u want to sell/give away? Do u want someone else's?

    hi all,

    i am too hyper-reactive to take many supplements now. but i have a ton of them that i've ordered over the last year -- some opened and some not. it seems i can't go up or down on anything without worsening my condition. i'll be making a list of supps i have that i can't use and will either sell or give away. any interest? i'll try to come up with the list soon.

    meanwhile, do others have lists of their supps they want to sell/give to others on this forum, or buy/get from others on this forum?

    Thanks to Diva55, we have these guidelines:

    IF YOU POST YR SUPPLEMENTS:
    1. Put the country you're from - as sending them overseas will add to the cost or be a problem with customs.
    2. Put against each supplement, or at the top of yr whole list, if you want to SELL / SWAP / DONATE
    3. Edit your orginal post to say SOLD once you have organised a sell/swap/donate

    warmly
    rrrr

    Is your name "Noel Edmonds" by any chance? ;)

    Seriously though it is a good idea. I can see a sub-forum developing. I actually asked for a specific forum for supplements a while back but was denied. "Supplement Swap" could be a sub-forum of the supplement forum.

    I went to see what I had - in the early days my brother sent me a load, and some I really didn't like, but they are all open with maybe a week's worth used...
    people might not like that.
    Glucosamine Hydrochloride Higher Nature 60 tabs
    MSM 100mg Higher Nature 160 tabs
    Vit B2 100mg Holland and Barratt 90 tabs (think the doc got it wrong, she wrote b2, did she mean b12?)

    If they are any good to you.

    I've got a ton of Gabapentin, but I'm not allowed to give that away. The garlic took it's place.

    Random poem that came into my head while thinking of the supplements exchange...

    "What is the flea that creeps so strange
    in the locks my hands do range?
    The humble louse, filled with your blood.
    Is he good meat for my hunting?
    Can I crunch his legs like crackling?

    Tenderly, tenderly chew his chump chops
    before he's aware, and hops?
    Have his brains on toast
    and a joint for the roast,
    Stew his bunions with some onions,
    his beliefs with his opinions?

    The flea is good. Delectable.
    My dinner's on your head.
    For one man's poison is another man's meat.
    And thank you very much.

    Jace, was reading your supp list. Do you have joint problems? Noticed the glucosomine and MSM. Do they really work?

    Not for me, sweetie, that's why they are up for grabs. My bro' sent me these when I was first sick, for what were mostly neural probs. Go figure.

    But yes, actually, my hands are shot because of the work I did. C'est la vie. They are good enough for normal work, and a lot better since the ME stopped me making sails. They used to sing after a long day at the workbench.

    I just stumbled across this and thought swapping supplements is a great idea! Just to clarify, these are the ones you've got right?:
    Glucosamine Hydrochloride
    MSM tablets
    Vitamin B2

    I only ask because there is some variation between products. Also, a little unrelated, but has anyone got any Citricidal

    Has anyone thought about setting up a whole website for supplement swapping?

    Thanks
    Ben

    supplements for sale. a lot of these are are from the yasko protocol. i seem to have become hyper reactive to all supplements, so i'm not going to take these listed below. if interested, please email me in a private message. i did not list prices here. but if folks are interested in any, we'll negotiate from there. i'll be more flexible with some than others.

    warmly,
    rrrr

    ==== supplements for sale, from the East Coast of the US ====
    (ideally i'd like to sell these, so if you are interested, let me know and i'll look up what i paid for them, or their going rate, and then we can negotiate the price. if i can't sell them then i will consider donating, but hope recipient can pay shipping costs. A FEW I WROTE "HAPPY TO DONATE" BY THE SUPPLEMENT. I HOPE TO GIVE THOSE TO PEOPLE IN NEED.)

    Great idea.
    Can I suggest that:

    1. You put the country you're from - as sending them overseas will add to the cost or be a problem with customs.

    2. You put against each supplement if you want to SELL / SWAP / DONATE

    3. You edit your orginal post to say SOLD once you have organised a sell/swap/donate

    Thanks for setting this up Rrrr
