My Favorite Supplements

What are the best supplements? There are many wonderful vitamins, herbs and minerals on the market today.

If I could only take 2 of them, I would take an essential fatty acid and vitamin D3. Why these two products? Because the studies on essential fatty acids and vitamin D3 show overwhelmingly how important these 2 vitamins are for us.

Essential Fatty Acids

There are many benefits to adding essential fatty acids to your diet. They are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and omega 6 fatty acids. Omega 3's are believed to:

  • reduce inflammation
  • help depression
  • reduce arthritis
  • reduce heart disease
  • reduce strokes
  • lower triglycerides
  • help skin disorders
  • help asthma
  • reduce macular degeneration

The best essential fatty acids are found in parent essential oils.

Vitamin D Supplements

Last year there were more than 3,000 research papers published on the benefits of vitamin D.

Here are some of the benefits of vitamin D:

  • needed to maintain bone density
  • reduces osteoporosis
  • boosts immunity
  • plays a role in proper insulin levels
  • decreases risk of high blood pressure
  • protects against cancer
  • may reduce autoimmune diseases
  • reduces inflammation
  • protects against low-level radiation
  • improves lung function.

Best of all, Vitamin D is free if you get your dose from the sun (15 minutes per day). If you prefer a vitamin, be sure that you get vitamin D3 for the best results. For adults, 2000 IUs are generally recommended.

In September 2012 scientists, physicians and nutritionists attended the New York Academy of Sciences' conference titled "Vitamin D: Beyond the Bone."

One of the presenters estimated an 18 percent reduction in healthcare costs is possible if everyone's vitamin D blood level was above 40ng/ml. This requires substantially more supplementation and sun bathing than most doctors recommend, though.

Even though fish oil and vitamin D are at the top of the list, I do have a few other favorites that I believe have really made a difference for me.

Here are some of my favorites that I believe are really difference makers!


REJUVENATE PLUS! is one of my all time favorites! It is a green powder that has many amazing ingredients in it. If you have never been able to tolerate the taste of a green powder before, you might change your mind with this one! It has a sweeter flavor (no sugar, but Stevia) and it has a pleasant flavor.
