Should I Take Supplements?

lbd

Generally speaking, if you are eating a diet consisting of real foods then you should be fulfilling your body’s nutrient requirements. But, at times, we may need to fill the gaps where are diet may be lacking.  Below you will find three (3) supplements which I find to be essential to aid in filling those gaps; many of which you all may be taking now.

Vitamin D Optimization

Getting adequate vitamin D is essential for your health.  With over 3000 binding sites for Vitamin D in every cell, we are clearly designed to spend time in the sun supplying our body with the ryas that aid in the production of vital pro-hormone.  Unfortunately, our modern lifestyles rarely allow for such regular sun exposure, especially in northern climates.  On top of this, except for fatty ocean fish, there is very little Vitamin D in any commonly consumed natural foods.

How Much Do I Need?

The best way to know how much Vitamin D you need to first determine your current blood levels of Vitamin D.  For optimization, your blood Vitamin D levels should be between 35-50 ng/mL for adults and children.  Unfortunately, most of us fall seriously short.  Children under the age of one can begin with 1000 IU, increasing 25 IU/lb of body weight until reaching the adult dosage.  Some people may need more for a period of time, but typically 4000-6000 IU/day will maintain your levels in an adequate range for normal physiological function.

Omega 3 Saturation

Historically, we obtained our essential fatty acids, both Omega 3 and 6, from dietary sources of wild game, seafood, and less appetizing sources like grubs and insects.  Our modern grain-fed food supply, complete with refined vegetable oils rich in omega 6, has completely altered the critical balance of omega 3:6 in our modern diet.  Supplementing your diet with pure, pharmaceutical-grade fish oils have proven the best way to re-balance this all-important ratio, while you reel in your omega 6 consumption .

How Much Do I Need?

We recommend 2-4 grams of total EPA/DHA per day.  However, if you are eating a diet filled with real foods, you may require less or even none to maintain your omega 3:6 ratio in a 1:1 balance.  We strongly recommend a liquid dose but capsules will work, as long as you don’t mind the inconvenience of choking down a big handful of capsules.

Recommended Brands:  Stronger Faster Healthier  SO3 (Liquid) or PurePharma 03 (Capsule)

 

Probiotics

We rely on our first dose of quality bacteria to happen to via the birth process.  Soon after that, we ate dirt and the many billions of organisms that came along for the ride.  The problem today is that we don’t eat dirt; we wash everything.  Additionally, we kill of many of our probiotic bacteria with poor nutrition, prescription drugs and highly stressful lifestyles.  For these reasons, it’s wise to take a probiotic supplement.

How Much Do I Need?

We recommend you begin taking a broad-spectrum probiotic, 10-30 billion CFU/day.
