Watch as Dr. Harry Moore of Forum Health, West Lake Hills, Texas shares the top four supplements he recommends for women over 50.
Dr. Moore recommends supplementation because most of us do not get enough vitamins and minerals through our diets for optimal health. Learn more about the recommended supplements and purchase below.
Mito Multi – high-quality multivitamin and multimineral; most people Dr. Moore sees (particularly those who are chronically ill or over 50 years old) are deficient in vitamins and minerals. Mito Multi supplies key mitochondrial micronutrients and a smart combination of alpha lipoic acid and resveratrol (antioxidants), N-acetyl cysteine (necessary for detoxification), and acetyl L-carnitine to boost cellular energy production.
Vitamin D3– most Americans are deficient in vitamin D, and need to optimize vitamin D levels through supplementation. Vitamin D is important for women over 50 because as women lose estrogen they have increased risk for osteoporosis. Vitamin D helps bone utilize calcium in order to maintain bone strength and structure; this process is also aided by vitamin K which allows calcium to be absorbed by bone.
Omega-3 – essential fatty acids, delivers an optimal dose of 1000mg EPA and DHA in every serving. This supplement helps reduce chronic inflammation and balance omega-6/omega-3 ratio for optimal health; omega-3 fatty acids may also help improve brain health.
Phosphatidylcholine – most of Dr. Moore’s clients are deficient in phosphatidylcholine, which is a major component of cell membranes. Without phosphatidylcholine we cannot create new healthy cells. Our body is constantly making new cells; the lining of our gut is replaced each week, for instance, and requires phosphatidylcholine for this process. For women over 50 as estrogen declines through menopause, phosphatidylcholine becomes even more important as the body cannot produce phosphatidylcholine as easily with less available estrogen.
