With the highly processed food that is consumed in America, adding whole food supplements is essential to creating a solid basis for your health. The four foundational supplements that Dr. Kalaba, DC, recommends are:
- Omega-3 Fatty Acids
- Vitamin D
Not only are these foundational supplements necessary to support healthy processes in your body, they also help prevent such things as inflammation, heart disease, and several types of cancer. Combine this with eating healthy food, adding healthy fats, and cleansing to your self-care routine.
Bio-Multi Plus is a versatile, balanced multiple vitamin and mineral supplement, that supplies unique forms of important micro-nutrients. We all know that the food we eat today is lacking in nutritional value compared to what our grandparents consumed.(1) A good, whole-food multi-vitamin is a great way to supplement for those missing nutrients.
Biomega-1000 provides a potent dose of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs), strategically sourced from the far South Pacific Ocean off the coast of Chile. This guarantees the freshest raw material available, full traceability of the product, and unparalleled purity. Each capsule delivers an impressive 1,000 mg of EPA and DHA, making it the ideal choice for therapeutic dosing.
Research has indicated that omega-3 fatty acids from oily fish, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), as well as from plants (alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)) benefit cardiovascular health and are anti-inflammatory in nature.(2)(3)
Probiotics are classically defined as “a preparation of, or a product containing viable, defined microorganisms in sufficient numbers, which alter the microbiota (typically by colonization) in a compartment of the host, and by that, exert beneficial health effects in this host.”
Some of these health effects include, “…prevention of bowel diseases, improving the immune system, for lactose intolerance and intestinal microbial balance, exhibiting antihypercholesterolemic and antihypertensive effects, alleviation of postmenopausal disorders, and reducing traveller’s diarrhea. Recent studies have also been focused on their uses in treating skin and oral diseases. In addition to that, modulation of the gut-brain by probiotics has been suggested as a novel therapeutic solution for anxiety and depression.”(4)
Probiotics specifically impact the gastrointestinal tract. An integral part of an optimally functioning gastrointestinal tract is the microbial community. BioDoph-7 Plus supplies a blend of pro- and prebiotics, including Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium lactis, Bifidobacterium breve, Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus salvarius, and Streptococcus thermophilus, along with the prebiotics Inulin (from chicory root), Arabinogalactans (from Larch), and Marshmallow root (extract).
The majority of people in the United States do not synthesize sufficient vitamin D in order to meet physiological requirements. Vitamin D is essential to optimal health as it helps protect against, “…several bone diseases, muscle weakness, more than a dozen types of internal cancers, multiple sclerosis, and type 1 diabetes mellitus,” among other conditions.(5)
Bio-D-Mulsion Forte supplies 2,000 IU per drop of vitamin D3 as a micro-emulsion for enhanced absorption and utilization, which is particularly important for those with malabsorption conditions. Published clinical studies have demonstrated significant improvements in 25(OH)D concentrations (202% increase) in as little as six weeks after beginning supplementation with Bio-D-Mulsion Forte.
If you don’t have access to Biotics Research supplements, ask your personal healthcare provider for similar types of foundational supplements.
