8 Supplements - no matter what!

Hi my ladies, 
This was written by Dr. Fred Pescatore. 

8 supplements everyone should be taking--no matter what

As you've probably gathered by now, I'm a true believer in keeping
things in good working order before they need repair. I do it with my
home and my car without hesitation--and most of you probably do, too.
So why is it always so much harder to do the same thing when it comes
to our health? Or at least to do it consistently?

Too many of us take our bodies for granted until it's too late. But
it's absolutely essential to be proactive about your health--no matter
what your age. Prime example--women start to lose bone mass around age
20, yet most of them only get concerned about it around menopause. Or
how about men, who hit their sexual peak at 17, but never bother to
think about it--until "it" doesn't work so well.

In both instances--and dozens more--there are things you can do early
to prevent these problems.

And it starts, once again, with diet and supplements.

I mentioned earlier this week how these two things are essential for
everyone, regardless of whether you're thin or overweight, in good
health or struggling.

A nutritious diet lays the foundation for good health, but,
unfortunately, food alone can't finish the job. These days, our soil
is so depleted of nutrients and minerals that there's simply no way to
get everything you need--nutritionally speaking--from what you eat.
That's where supplements come in. But contrary to what so many of the
alternative health gurus out there would have you believe, you don't
have to choke down dozens of pills every day to have a shot at a long,
healthy life.

I've boiled it down to eight things that I call my "Desert Island"
Supplements. Eight things I wouldn't ever want to be without--and
think that everyone else should be taking too.
Pycnogenol (R)
Vitamin D3
Coenzyme Q10
Probiotics
Fish oils 

Resveratrol
Curcumin 

Multivitamin
So there you have it. Of course, the items on this list might change
at some point. But based on my research and what I've seen in my
patients, these are the supplements that have proven themselves time
and time again. I think everyone should be taking no matter what. It
just makes sense. Until next time,

Dr. Fred
