I currently take 12 supplements I believe are the most critical for my health and well-being… right now.
They are proven to increase energy, burn fat, fight pain, help digestion, improve sleep and much more.
Not a day goes by that I don’t take them.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean YOU should be taking them, too.
You see, the best approach for supplements is finding out exactly what’s going on in your own body.
With a few simple tests you can find out what your body needs most… or what you have too much of.
For example, I was taking a B complex for several months. And when I rechecked my blood work it showed I was taking too much. So I stopped and will retest myself again in a few months.
So when was the last time you knew it was time to stop taking a vitamin?
Or time to start taking one?
How much vitamin D3 you should take, for example, is something people often get wrong. It’s critical for heart, bone and blood vessel health. It’s also a cornerstone of your immune system and helps transcribe genes by signaling them to turn on and off.
Some people are deficient in vitamin D3 even when they supplement with 2,000 to 3,000 I.U. daily. Truth is, a lot of folks need 8,000 I.U. of vitamin D3 or more. And you’d never know that unless you test for it.
Blood work is good for vitamins. But for minerals, I recommend a hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) test.
I found out about the HTMA test from Dr. Robert Thompson. His book on the role vitamins and minerals play in the body is the best book I’ve ever read on the subject.
I’m so convinced it can help reverse your worst health problems, I give away copies of his book for free. You can claim yours by clicking here.
I do both tests a few times a year. And based on my last results, here are the supplements I’m taking right now.
Vitamin C (whole food based) — a powerful antioxidant, it supports immune function and helps your body form and maintain connective tissue, including bones, blood vessels and skin.
Multivitamin (no minerals added) — to make sure I get ALL of my daily vitamins with a comprehensive blend.
Heal-n-Soothe® — systemic enzymes help break up inflammation, scar tissue and the other waste matter that clogs up your body and causes pain. Click here for pain relief with Heal-n-Soothe®.
DHEA — your “anti-stress” hormone that balances cortisol, regulates fat and mineral metabolism, and is the precursor to many other hormones like testosterone.
Dessicated Adrenal — supports my overworked adrenal glands, regulate stress and helps keep my energy levels up.
Fenugreek — for blood sugar control.
Licorice Root — to help with some digestive issues.
Ubiquinol (Reduced form of CoQ10) — for energy, heart and brain health, mitochondrial support and anti-aging.
Sleepzyme® — to help me sleep by normalizing hormones that control circadian rhythms. Click here for better sleep with Sleepzyme®.
Super Joint Support® — to keep my joints supple and healthy, and support optimal cartilage. Click here for healthier, pain free joints with Super Joint Support®.
Tryptophan — again, for sleep. But it also helps relax muscles.
L-carnitine — for energy, focus, brainpower and mitochondrial support.
These supplements might be a great idea of you, or they may be things you just don’t need right now.
To find out for sure, I recommend regular blood work and hair tissue mineral analysis to see exactly what you need.
