I'm a true believer in taking dietary supplements. For years, I have been taking them along with eating a healthy diet in order to alleviate cravings, boost mental & physical energy, reduce stress, regulate hormones, & strengthen heart, joints & bones. They must be working because I'm in my 60's, rarely feel ill, and don't take any prescription medications. Blame it on my genes? I don't know about that. I have a family history which includes diabetes, hypertension & multiple sclerosis. Also, I wasn't always this health conscious. I smoked cigarettes for years, ate an unhealthy diet, & worked stressful demanding jobs. For almost 2 years, I've been a caregiver to my 90-year old mother with moderate dementia, hypothyroidism & heart disease. Since I started giving my mom dietary supplements, my family has seen a definite improvement in her health & mood. You should checkout 'PubMed'. It allows you to search online published scientific articles on dietary supplements.

I had a root canal which continued to give me problems for months. I was afraid I would loss this tooth. I started taking AHCC and my tooth started feeling better within a day.
I'm not one to take diet supplements. However, I read such good reviews about CLA and I decided to give it a try. I was surprised when my middle age stomach pooch 'muffin top' got flatter. I was taking one pill in the morning and one in mid afternoon. When I stopped taking CLA, the pooch started coming back.

I bought this shampoo and the conditioner for my 90 yr old mother. It treated her dry itchy scalp and left her gray hair soft, shiny and manageable.
Becoming a caregiver to my mother with alzheimer's disease has been a major adjustment for me. Its a challenging situation with added responsibilities and constraints on my life. This potent adaptogen herb, Rhodiola Rosea has given me added energy and mental stability along with greatly improving my nerves and reducing stress. I love this herb!!
I either take this or NAC which produces L-gluthathione in the body to prevent heart disease, memory loss, cancer and aging.
NAC has the ability to increase glutathione levels in the body which helps prevent heart disease, memory loss and cancer.
R-lipoic acid helps maintain optimal blood sugar levels by helping the body to use glucose.
L-theanine and GABA are highly effective with no ill side effects. You can take them with Melissa Lemon Balm and 5-HTP for extra stress relief.
I rotate taking Bacopa along with other nootropics, Vinpocetine, Lions Mane and Hyperzine A.
L-carnitine boosts my mental and physical energy. It is important for heart and brain function and muscle movement.
