Your skin is like a third kidney. It filters crap out. I say SLOW DOWN on the supps and pro/pre-biotics. There is such thing as too-much-of-a-good-thing, and you have too much of many 'good things'! Onions and artichokes are pre-biotics, so they... (more)

That's a bit low. Aim for a blood level of 125-150 nmol/L. (50-60 ng/ml) CLO is not an ideal source of D, since the ratio of A to D can be 10 to 1 or more. Take a separate oil-based D supplement, if you can't get enough sun.
