you don't need any suppliments. just eat the right food and take multivitamin. any suppliments i've taken have caused me issues. i can eat fish, chicken, sardines, steaks but not in huge portions. i steer clear of veggies/fruits while im flaring. i eat several times a day to make sure i get all my nutrients. even on prednisone i've been able to stay muscular and get stronger. im 5'9 and 200 fyi. like the RyanF says, its hard to tell i even have anything wrong with me except acne and slightly bloated look. everyone probably thinks im on the real juice.
