The daily multivitamin is obvious. I tend to buy more stuff when I can. Back when I had my highest paying job, I was eating an entire handful of pills at a time until I started to throw up every day just trying to start to swallow them. Pills always seemed to make more sense, but I did have phases involving protein powders. Sometimes oatmeal. My thing was always to pick something that was supposed to have a lot of nutritional value and over-do it. That way I could justify bad habits with candy, energy drinks, caffeine pills, too much coffee, and alcohol before 10 years ago. This year is different. My job has been setting me up by putting me in a position to talk with nutritionists on a casual conversation basis, and most of the food my wife and I eat comes from the cafeteria. The Chef who is about to retire who runs the cafeteria told me that he has been cooking for fifty years. Blood tests don't lie: both my wife and I are getting healthier by eating the food. And yesterday, I actually put candy back on the shelf in favor of a supplement with huperzine-A to help with lucid dreaming.

But when you hit middle age, you will not have to go through a midlife crisis where you have to go off and "find yourself", because you never LOST yourself in the first place.
At 44, it is safe to say it worked as you said. Middle age is here without a crisis. I just wish I could stop living paycheck to paycheck and start planning for retirement.
As for abilities, I think the important thing is never giving up. No effort is completely wasted.
