Daily Nutrient Regimen

Often I am asked what my daily vitamin regimen is.   This is what I strive to do daily.   To be honest I’m not always able to do this but I usually get close, but I also do the IV treatment which hopefully makes up for any shortfall.  I just do the best I can which is still better than I was.

Typical Vitamin Regimen
Protein Shakes (40-60 grams) in morning either whey or dried egg whites which ever suits you (egg whites upset my stomach)
Magnesium Taurate (125 mg 3x per day) or liquid Magnesium Chloride Solution (important not to get the magnesium oxide which is what is usually at the drug stores)
Vitamin D3 drops (1,000 IU/drop) at least 3 under tongue per day
Vitamin A drops (micellized (5,000 IU/drop) 1 drop under tongue per day
MultiVitamin (Good Quality) Three Servings Divided morning lunch and dinner (liquid Centrum or your favorite, recommend one without the calcium in it – take calcium separate)
Calcium Citrate (150 mg) 2 capsules 3 x per day morning lunch and dinner (this may not be enough)
Omega 3’s (look at labels) – either get liquid if you can stand it or go with capsules. You must read the labels though. A therapeutic dose for cholesterol it is EPA 1800-2160 mg and DHA 1200-1440 mg, for Depression it can be higher
Iron (Take with 1,500 mg Vitamin C – Never with Calcium)
B-12 Injection 1cc weekly (methylcobalamin not cyanocobalamin)

I also do Intravenous Micronutrient Therapy (aka Myer’s cocktail) every other week now. I started weekly but now go every 2-3 weeks.

Tyrosine (500-1500 mg) works kind of like coffee without the jitters. For me it provides clarity and focus. It’s good to take in the morning and afternoon when you need to work or study. Not if you are trying to relax. (as needed)

DL-Phenylalanine (500-1500 mg) provides a happy good feeling. It upsets my stomach, so try it and see if it works for you. I really like it but unfortunately it makes me sick.

Taurine (500-1500 mg) relaxing, calming amino acid (a lot of these hangover “cures” and such at the convenience stores put this in their product)

Product called “GabaTone” for relaxation that has valerian root, lithium, taurine …. in it

Milk Thistle is good for your liver
