Most micronutrients should come from whole foods: vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and organic meats. I recommend food first, always. Eating dark leafy greens or steamed broccoli drizzled with olive oil and celtic sea salt will always trump a fiber supplement. However, specific herbal formulas and vitamin combinations are fantastic to support weakened or damaged organs. Coupled with lifestyle changes, I have seen supplements do many things such as: lower blood pressure, heal the liver and kidneys, repair the gut, aid in weight loss, lower cholesterol, remove infection, improve memory, lower inflammation, and reverse cancer - without the side effects you experience with medications. Specific supplements are essential while taking medications such as Coq10 with statins.


When looking to buy supplements, it is best to get professional grade supplements rather than store brands. Some key considerations when selecting brands: FDA Registered, cGMP Compliance, NSF Registered, and in-house testing. Pure Encapsulations, Thorne, Klaire Labs, Orthomolecular are all quality professional brands. Jarrow, Now, and Nature’s Way are good consumer brands. I have an online dispensary where patients can order any of these brands directly, get them shipped to their home, and reorder when they need to.


When taking supplements, many people get confused when to take them. General rule of thumb: take them with food and listen to your body. Keep it simple.

Enzymes for inflammation, take away from food. Enzymes for digestion, take with food.
