Repair Your Metabolism For a Better Life.

Supplements: I recommend the top 4 (1-4) to everyone

Vitamins EVERYONE Needs

1) Multivitamin

2) Vitamin D

  • Which we used to get from sunshine before we built houses and moved indoors: Between 2,000 and 4,000 IU will get your blood level into the normal zone: Example: Carlson Labs Super Daily D3 Vitamin, 2000 (if you spend a lot of time outdoors) or 4000  (if you are mostly indoors) IU these drops should last 1 year, recommended due to the oil 

Minerals EVERYONE Needs (To counteract soil depletion)

3) Magnesium Oxide 250mg.

4) Zinc Picolinate, 22 mg- 50mg.

  • Solgar  Zinc picolinate contains 20% elemental zinc. Therefore 50 mg of zinc picolinate contains 10 mg elemental zinc. The RDA for men and women is 11mg and 8mg respectively, and the upper tolerable limit is 40mg of elemental zinc. Too much gives many people digestive upset.

Minerals for BONE and IMMUNE System Health

Calcium

Minerals for VEGANS and folks with THYROID disease

Iodine

Selenium

  • Brazil nuts are very high in selenium.
  • 10 nuts per month will get you what you need. Red meat eaters get lots of selenium because most grass is high in selenium and most cows are still at least weaned on grasses and can bioconcentrate this mineral in their tissues.

Superfood Supplements

Cartilage and Collagen

If you don’t have time to make bone stock from scratch and don’t like the boxed products (Kirkland brand organic chicken stock or Pacific Organic chicken or beef stock). I highly recommend these stand in products. 

Cartilage 

  • Food Science of Vermont Superior Cartilage
  • Ancestral Science Bovine Tracheal Cartilage

Collagen

  • CB Supplements Multi Collagen Protein. Use promo code drcate to get $5 off this premium grade collagen powder.

Liver pills!

These offer you the most bioavailable form of iron and several B vitamins. I have seen them correct longstanding anemia and other blood cell level abnormalities like high or low white counts for example. Lots of good brands out there, do try to get something organic and pasture raised. Two of my favorites are

Inflammation-Fighting Supplements

Turmeric supplements

Sleep Aid Supplements

  • Pure Encapsulations has a track record of actually containing what the container promises. Many different formulations exist, and it’s really tough to know what will work for a given person so if you don’t have good luck with one, try another.
  • Here’s an example, from a company that promises your satisfaction or your money back. (Check their 45 day return policy for details): https://supplementfirst.com/products/pure-encapsulations-best-rest-formula
