I wanted to take a moment to share with you what I feel are the ten supplements most people should be taking.†

MY RECOMMENDED SUPPLEMENTS

MULTIVITAMIN

A multivitamin is the essential baseline to start your personal vitamin regimen. Once you’ve established the right multi for your personal needs, you add in any other supplements for your own health concerns and goals.†

Our options: Core Multi, Men’s Multi, Women’s Multi, Performance Multi, Multi Energy Powder, Daily Multi with Grape Seed and the Kid’s Multi

PROBIOTICS

Most have heard of probiotics as healthy bacteria and as important to re-balance our gut after taking an antibiotic. However, did you also know helpful probiotics are for digestion, immune function and weight loss?†

Our options: Probiotic HxⓇ, Probiotic HxⓇ Weight, Probiotic Maintain and Core Probiotic

COLLAGEN

Collagen is needed for all of our connective tissues, not just hair, skin and nails. It can help your brain, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and bones.†

Our options: Collagen HxⓇ, Collagen 3000 tabs, Collagex HA, Flex HxⓇ and True Beauty

OMEGA-3

Omegas are a true powerhouse! They are important not only for our heart and brain, but also for our eyes, veins and skin. Omegas can aid in digestion, support healthy bowel function and hydrate from the inside out. Omegas can also ease inflammation.†

Our options: Fish Oil, Biomega, Krill Oil Advanced and Organic Flaxseed Powder (vegetarian option)

NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine)

NAC is a precursor to glutathione, which means our bodies use NAC to make glutathione, which is essential for anti-aging. NAC is most commonly used for our respiratory system to open up the lungs for easier breathing and to aid in liver and kidney detoxification.†

Our option: NAC

GRAPE SEED EXTRACT

Grape Seed Extract is a great antioxidant that can help aid in circulation. This nutrient can also be beneficial for maintaining healthy blood pressure levels, healthy eyes and even targets inflammation.†

Our option: Grape Seed Extract

RESVERATROL

Resveratrol is something we’ve all heard of…it’s what makes a glass of red wine “good for you”. It’s great for anti-aging, as well as our brain, heart and intestinal health. Resveratrol can help our cells fend off free radical damage, which can make us more susceptible to developing illnesses and diseases.†

Our options: Resveratrol, Resveratrol HxⓇ, Resveratrol Max HxⓇ and Resveratrol-50

GREEN TEA

Green tea is a great all-around beneficial antioxidant. Not only is it good for maintaining healthy weight but can also aid in weight loss by helping to promote fat burning in our bodies. Green tea can also act as an immunity booster and can support healthy cell division.†

Our options: Green Tea HxⓇ, Green Tea TxⓇ and Green Tea Fat Burner

CALCIUM

Everyone knows how important calcium is for our bones. It helps to keep them strong and healthy. It can help maintain bone density and is essential for proper bone aging. Calcium is best used along with such vitamins and minerals like magnesium, Vitamin D, Vitamin K and sometimes strontium.†

Our options: Calcium Magnesium Citrate, Calplex HxⓇ and Bone Powder (aka MY PERSONAL FAVORITE!)†

Vitamin D 

Vitamin D3 that is a lipid soluble compound that plays a significant role in calcium homeostasis and bone metabolism. Vitamin D naturally comes from sunlight but with time people are getting less sunlight spending more time indoors. As mentioned above calcium and vitamin D can play a role together therefore it is important to include vitamin D into your daily regimen as well. † 

Our options: Vitamin D3 1000 IU, Vitamin D3 3000 IU, and Vitamin D3 300 IU †

My wife and I habitually get up early in the morning, around 5 or 5:30. On the weekend, we sleep in until about 6 or 6:15. We have our little routine. We get up, we chat a little bit, I brew coffee and we take care of the two dogs. We watch a little news and check the weather, then I go exercise.†

I have a recumbent bike up in the bedroom. I ride the bike for 20 to 30 minutes, depending on how much time I have any given morning. I do a lot of stretching, as well as pushups and weight lifting, so it’s a nice morning workout.† 

After that, I have my morning concoction. It’s a health blend made up of several powders that I mix together. For me, the best time to take it is after exercise.†

Why your body needs this concoction

With age, we have this natural loss of tissue, strength and even memory functions. This concoction addresses everything in my body. It’s not my vitamins. I take my vitamins and other more obscure supplements later with my breakfast.†   

When you hit 50 or so, you really want to know about this blend. When we hit our mid-20s, our collagen production begins to decline. That’s an issue because this is the second most common ingredient in the human body. 67% of your joint cartilage is collagen, 70% of your skin is collagen and most of the tissue in your hair and nails is collagen. Your bone is 36% collagen and collagen also makes up the blood-brain barrier that keeps toxins out of the brain. With age, as your body makes less collagen, your body suffers. If you take collagen, it helps rebuild your bones, safeguard the health of your joints and supports your hair, skin and nails.†

With age, we also make less of the peptides that make our ligaments and tendons, so they tend to stiffen, dry out and develop microtears. This is the most common injury in aging people because they cannot maintain the structure of these tissues.†

We go through a situation with age which is called sarcopenia, where we have an age-related drop in muscle and strength. Nobody wants that because nobody wants to fall down and break their hip or hit their head. If you have more muscle, that doesn’t happen, plus you’re stronger and you survive better.†

The important nutrients found in my morning concoction

One way I push back on aging is by taking a scoop of Collagex HA. This formula provides collagen, as well as glucosamine and hyaluronic acid. Collagex HA is addressing my bones, my skin, my joints, my hair, my nails and my spinal tissue.†

Then I add a scoop of Flex HxⓇ. Flex HxⓇ is engineered to help with your ligaments and tendons. This formulation has the peptides specific for ligaments and tendons, otherwise you can end up with golfer’s elbow or tennis elbow.† 

I also take Active HxⓇ, which is beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate (HMB). We used to say that you should take whey protein for your muscles, and it’s still a great option, but researchers have found that it’s the branched-chain amino acid leucine that is important because it turns into HMB. This helps prevent muscle loss in older people.†

MAINTAINING MUSCLE MASS WITH HMB – INVITE HEALTH PODCAST, EPISODE 442. Listen Now>>

I add half a scoop of Bone Powder to my morning health concoction to provide my body with the nutrients needed to engineer bone. Finally, I top it off with a scoop of Cocoa HxⓇ. This is real chocolate that offers support for the brain. That’s my morning concoction and I strongly recommend it for older people who want to maintain their health.† 

In this episode, Jerry Hickey, Ph. shares his morning routine for keeping his body functioning as he ages. He discusses the different ways the human body can change with age and provides the recipe for his daily morning concoction, made with InViteⓇ Health products.†

Key Topics:

  • Why does collagen production decline with age?
  • The role of ligaments and tendons
  • Research on HMB
