Dr. Birken recommends the following supplements for all:
1. Vitamin D – studies show a lower risk for heart disease and lower risk for breast cancer. D can help with energy and metabolism
2. B Complex – many of us have difficulty methylated our B vitamins. This supplement has effects on energy by increasing cellular mitochondrial function
3. Indole Forte – this contains two molecules – DIM and Indole 3 carbinol. Recent research shows a lower risk for breast cancer in women and lower risk for prostate cancer in men. Additionally, there are benefits on our cardiovascular system. Preliminary studies show a possible reduction in colon cancer.
4. Probiotic – We are exposed to many different toxins in our food, water, and in the air. Probiotic can detoxify many of these pollutants while providing gastrointestinal balance.
5. Turmeric – This supplement has many benefits – decreased inflammation, lower risk for Alzheimer, and possible cancer prevention.
6. Fish oil – omega 3 fish oil has protection on the cardiovascular system including lower blood pressure and reduction in triglycerides.
7. Arterosil – This is recommended for everyone over 45 and for anyone with a strong history for heart disease/stroke, diabetes, and hypertension. New studies reveal a significant reduction in plaque, the main cause for heart disease and stroke, within two months after starting Arterosil.
