Everybody has an amount of money they'll spend on supplements each month. Get the most benefits for your buck in 2008. I'll make your decision a little easier with a few items based on average price and nutritional advantage. Think of it as my contribution to your good health.
1.) folic acid (price $5) For a measly 20 quarters a month, you can protect yourself from certain cancers and lower your cholesterol. Runner up goes to Vitamin D3. Most people are deficient in both.
2.) spirulina (price $10) You'll never get this sea green in your diet, unless you supplement. It's a cancer fighter and an immune enhancer. Chlorella was a distant second. It's about 3x more expensive and harder to absorb.
3.) barley grass (price $15) That's right, another green drink. Purify your blood and alkalize your body. Somebody famous that I've never heard of once said, "Your clean if your insides are green." Sorry B-complex, you're overrated.
4.) fish oil (price $20) I don't want to bore you or me about ethyl esters and re-esterfied triglycerides, but throw that discount store, fish oil wanna be, to the curb. I can taste the mercury right now. The omega 3 in fish oil will protect your heart and increase brain power. Prevent alzheimer's and heart disease for the price of six gallons of gas.
5. alpha lipoic acid (price $25) The super antioxidant that recycles vitamins and normalizes blood sugar. The unique fat and water soluble characteristics make this one an easy choice. Move over CoQ10, you're not even close.
6. multivitamin (price $30) A dollar a day for a multi, you must be crazy. What's crazy, is spending anything less. There's no such thing as a great "one a day" multivitamin for $15-$20. It doesn't exist. You need much higher doses than the RDA to achieve optiumum health. Excellent absorbtion and the right combination of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants will help you be healthier than your neighbor. ............Matt
