6mg zinc (not the past couple weeks)
Trace mineral drops

1-2 mcg B12, sublingual drops or transdermal

0-5 grams vit C as needed (currently 1.5)

100mcg vit K
400mg vit E / tocopherols, gamma-heavy blend
vitamin A
5 methylfolate or folinic acid, 400mcg

Various herbal salves (Tiger Balm, Green Comfort, Temple of Heaven, etc.)

I vary the supplements based on symptoms, but this is the current default. Each thing I take makes me feel a little better, and I feel a little (or a lot) worse without it. Different types of muscle cramps/pain are alleviated by different minerals. If I am low in vit C I crave sugars. And so on.

I know folinic doesn't work for everyone, but it does for me, and is slower-release than 5MF.
