What supplements and vitamins etc does everyone take

Hello I am currently taking a liquid supplement fermented tumeric and ginger by Botanica. I have heard that Magnesium helps but I havent looked into it yet myself, I was also taking flaxseed oil capsoles everyday, I dont think they bothered me but I would have to try again to test. This fermented tumeric and ginger has deffinitly helped me out, it says it helps relieve inflammation and helps maintain a healthy intestinal tract, also it says to consult your doctor or what ever before taking it, in which I didnt, but I havent had any bad reactions to it and in fact i dont get as many pains as I usually do. I wanted to see if anyone else has tried this and what they experienced and what other supplements/vitamins people take.

Everyone is different but my nutritionist told me to stay away from flax.

I cant have flaxseed its self though. The oil seemed to be okay but I was also still trying go figure out things to eat so thats why i said i woukd have to test again but even then i dont think i would try it again due to the fact how bad the seed is (even ground) on my stomach

My GI told me that theres no use for me to take supplements as nothing gets absorbed, so just the normal meds and the only i do take extra are citro soda to cleanse my kidneys. I wonder if B12 shots will help

my intuition tells me Benefiber is the supplement that is the most beneficial for me and my colon. im on it 4 scoops/day since a good 6 months or more.
BM and gaz are different since I take it, more gaz, but most strikingly, complete odorless gaz!
