Top 5 Supplements

I had a very engaging discussion with my naturopath friend, who has been staying with me this week, on the topic of supplements. I posed the question: If you could only take five supplements, what would be your top five? Some people might struggle to come up with a list of five supplements, but we are not some people. We agreed pretty much agreed on the list, although I would have picked a different mineral for the fifth slot. Without further delay, here are the top five supplements he recommends in no particular order:

  1. Salt - This will be the topic of my next newsletter. Throw out your table salt and get some high-quality Celtic or Himalayan sea salt. Cook with it, season meals with it, and take some with every glass of purified/filtered water. I knew the importance of supplementing sodium while on a low-carb diet, but I didn’t realize that it’s hard to overdo it when you are consuming high-quality salt with lots of minerals (Celtic salt has over 90 minerals.)

  2. Essential minerals - There are a variety of choices, but we both agree the humic and fulvic minerals in BEAM Minerals are the way to go. I start every morning with some salt and BEAM Minerals.

  3. Omega 3 - Omega 3 is generally found in fatty fish, but you have to worry about heavy metals. There are other sources, but if all else fails, a good fish oil supplement would be appropriate.

  4. Multivitamin/mineral complex - Most multivitamins are of poor quality. Most of them have too much of certain vitamins/minerals and not enough of others. Scott’s recommendation is a product called Cardio Miracle, and after for trying it for myself, I think I will be adding it to my daily regiment. It has a unique formula that supports nitric oxide synthesis in the body.

  5. Copper - This is the slot where we differed. I would have said magnesium, which technically would be available in some of the above. Scott swears by copper, and I will be adding this highly bioavailable form to my stack.
