Dr. LaBrie’s CORE FOUR program
increases cellular energy, reduces inflammation and decreases the risks of heart disease, cancer, depression, Alzheimer's and dementia.
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 more! Average requirement is 2.8 milligrams per lb. of body weight per day.
