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

Although most adults in America have consumed alcohol at some point in their lives, they are often unaware of how this can impact their overall health and wellness.
Do you usually start your day with coffee or tea? These drinks are naturally packed with powerful nutrients, but when you add creamers, sugar and other flavorings, they lose their benefits. Turn to our Multi Energy Powder, a supportive multivitamin, multi-mineral formulation, to help you get your energy levels up while promoting your overall health.

At some point throughout your life, you will experience bloating. Some people have chronic bloating and I want to talk about what it is that is generating this effect and what you can be doing. Bloating is certainly not a fun experience and when we look at the statistics, we know that this is a major problem for so many people on a daily basis.†
What is bloating?
You’ve probably heard someone say that they feel bloated or you may have experienced it yourself. You feel a little bit rounder in the abdomen area. Bloating occurs when the GI tract is filled with air or gas. This is oftentimes driven up by and associated with constipation. We have to look at what the main issue is.†
Let’s look at the pathophysiology of these problems. Our microbiome is playing a significant role in this. When we look at irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and issues with constipation, we see a higher prevalence of bloating. Understanding the underlying cause is really important. This is where we have to look at the gut microbiome and the gas production that is generated by bad bacteria. We have to look at the intestinal transport of foods throughout our GI tract. This is like a staging effect and if one thing gets screwed up, then you can see how we start to have these other issues that backup throughout the system.†
Feeling bloated? Here’s how to help
We have to be able to zero in on things that we know are likely triggers to bloating. We can look at the bad foods that people are eating and the lack of fiber in the Standard American Diet. We can also look at carbonated beverages. We can also look at some remedies for this issue. Looking at something like green tea or white tea, as opposed to drinking carbonated beverages or soda, can be beneficial. We have to take a multi-functional approach when it comes to bloating and being able to target this.†
Number one, we should target the microbiome with something like a multi-strain probiotic such as the Probiotic HxⓇ. This is an area that we want to reestablish by laying down good bacteria. We also have to make sure we’re making dietary changes by including high-fiber foods in the diet each and every day. We also have to stay hydrated. Whether we’re doing this by taking the Purples HxⓇ or Oranges HxⓇ instead of juice, turning to a superfood powder would be a better option.†
Throughout the day, we can also take green tea or white tea in the form of Green Tea TxⓇ and White Tea TxⓇ to help support the body. Green tea has a really nice ability to allow the GI tract to have better movement. The EGCG in green tea also works with the healthy bacteria found in the Probiotic HxⓇ.†
Then we have to think about digestive enzymes. For a lot of folks, they think that bloating after a meal is normal, but it’s not. As we get older, our bodies get less efficient at making digestive enzymes such as amylase and protease. Taking Digestive HxⓇ will really allow the body to do a more efficient job at the digestion of the foods you are taking in. Vitamin C and magnesium are also supportive of the digestive tract.†
In this episode, Amanda Williams, MPH discusses bloating and how it comes about. She provides recommendations for nutrients that can help, as well as lifestyle changes.†
