“Dr. Heather what supplements should I be taking?”

–Dear Reader,

Thank you for your question. Millions of Americans take multivitamins and other supplements on a daily basis. With the all the  media today it can be very confusing. I want to share the nutritional supplements that I suggest for my family and friends. Our motto at Cardin Wellness Center is 5 to Thrive! We are happy  to make specific recommendations of our favorite products.

  1. Multivitamin and mineral
  2. Omega oils, EPA and DHA
  3. Digestive enzyme/ probiotic
  4. Vitamin D. This a fat soluble vitamin and the biggest predictor of heart disease and cancer.
  5. Exogenous ketonesalivetothrive









The typical American diet is full of sugar, processes food, food toxins, additives, dyes, plastics, pesticides and low in whole foods like vegetables and organic meats.

True facts:

  • #1 killer of Americans is heart disease. It is 97% lifestyle related.
  • #1 diagnoses disease among children is diabetes.
  • Type 3 diabetes is also called Alzheimers.
  • The current generation of children are not expected to live as long as their parents.
  • 1 out of every 3 American adults are obese.

Super exciting news! Fuel the Difference!

For years the thought has been that glucose (from carbohydrates) was the fuel of choice for the brain. It is true that the brain uses glucose but it prefers ketones as a fuels source.   Ketones, B-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), acetoacetate (ACA) and acetone, are the by-products of fat breakdown. Ketones can be used by the tissues, including the brain, in the body in much the same way as glucose, and are thought to be a superior fuel source to glucose. Yes, I am suggesting, feeding the brain fats. coconut, olives, nuts, seeds, avocados, flax, butter, coconut……. But as we all now many American have gut issues.  What if we could feed the body ketones ad bypass digestions and breakdown?  Well…….. now we can!
