Nutrition

Dr. LaBrie’s   CORE FOUR program

increases cellular energy, reduces inflammation and decreases the risks of heart disease, cancer, depression, Alzheimer's and dementia. 

  • You need high quality, bio-available nutrients with no artificial colors, no limestone (calcium carbonate), no hydrogenated oils, no binders or fillers.
  • Pure Encapsulated and Metagenics Nutraceuticals are your best bet for quality, nutrient availability and price.

                         

FIRST: 
Multivitamins are not one-size-fits-all.  Yours  should be right for your age, gender, and health status. They are your source for all the B-vitamins and antioxidants.  Most multi’s have too many ingredients and not enough potency.  Dosage for B12 should be 500 micrograms or higher.  

SECOND:  Fish oil (EPA-DHA) is your best source for  Omega-3 fatty acids.  Which are natural anti-inflammatory agents for blood vessels and lubricant for joints. No fishy burps with this one.  Maintenance dose is 1 gram per day. Therapeutic dose is 2 grams per day. 

THIRD:   
Vitamin D3 enhances calcium absorption and retention, it may also have a prominent role in cellular, cardiovascular, colon and immune health. It is safe unless you are hypercalcemic (?,ask Dr. LaBrie). Dosages from 1,000 to 10,000 IU,s  daily.

FOURTH:  Magnesium is required for muscle contractions, cardiac function, the regulation of acid/alkaline balance,  metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids and fats, and moreAverage requirement is 2.8 milligrams per lb. of body weight per day.

There is no magic bullet.  There is no souped-up supplement that can supply all of your nutritional needs.  Stop trying to keep up with each new trend in the vitamin world; that gets expensive and complicated.

Stick with Dr. LaBrie's Core Four Program to cover all the basics, without overlooking the essentials.

If you are taking medications, you will need to know what nutrient depletions may occur with these drugs and also which supplements may interfere with the action of the drugs you are taking.  Dr. LaBrie can provide answers to help you obtain the optimum nutrition for your body's specific needs.
