THOUGH THESE HAVE ONLY BEEN WIDELY USED IN THE 21ST CENTURY, THESE SUPPLEMENTS ARE ALSO TAKEN BY ME:
Resveratrol - taken every morning
Melatonin - 3 mg, four bedtimes per week
Juvenon - taken every morning

Eat a good diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables. One particularly needs vitamins B6, B9, and B12. If you don't get enough veggies, consider a B-complex, but be sure it contains Folic Acid, B9, as many do not.

There is likely advantage to obtaining the vitamin E containing gamma-tocopherol.
