Why we recommend what we sell...
Supplements Required to Express Health and Vitality
**Understand that sufficient amounts of fish oil and Probiotics cannot be consumed, no matter how good your diet is, and therefore are two supplements that are absolutely required for optimal health**
----PLEASE DO NOT STRAY FROM MY RECOMMENDED BRANDS----
THE MOST EXPENSIVE SUPPLEMENT IS ONE THAT DOES NOT WORK
OR ONE THAT MAKES YOU SICK
** All the brands I recommend are third party tested
-A third party assay is where the company that makes the product has another company come in and test their product for purity, quality, composition, and potency.
** The fish oils I sell and recommend are burp free, meaning you won't have fishy burps.
I recommend five brands of FISH OILS:
1) Innate Choice
2) Ortho Molecular
3) Arctic Oils
5) Carlson Labs
I offer Innate Choice through my practice.
The PROBIOTICS I recommend (both are available through me or online):
o Theralac comes 30 pills/bottle
o Begin by taking one daily for 2 weeks, and then you only need to take two per week. (Thirty caps last 10-15 weeks)
• Innate Choice
o Innate Choice comes 60 caps/bottle, and you should take 2 a day (30 day supply)
I recommend taking the probiotic first thing in the morning although they can be taken anytime with or without food.
All Probiotics should be kept in the fridge at all times if possible.
If pills are a problem for kids they can be opened and the powder inside added to their food. (Preferably a non acidic food)
***Infants will get probiotics and fish oil from mom's breast milk as long as mom is not deficient and is taking her supplement***
-REASONS TO TAKE PROBIOTICS-
• If you take an antibiotic it can take up to a year to get your gut bacteria back in check
-OTHER SUPPLEMENTS THAT I RECOMMEND IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE-
1) Vitamin D3 - Usually you get all the vitamin D you need from exposure to the sun, although in North Dakota we make vitamin D only two or so months out of the year from sun exposure. The use of sunscreen limits the amount of sunlight reaching the skin. D3 (cholecalciferol) NOT D2, should be used to supplement with. 3000IU is optimal.
2) Multivitamin -Necessary mainly due to poor American diet.
The best test for vitamin D is the 25(OH)D AKA 25-hydroxyvitamin D. Labcorp uses the gold standard Diasorin test for checking vitamin D levels and is the lab I most highly recommend.
