So, if I could only take 5 supplements for basic wellness, what would they be?


#1 — Magnesium

  • Calms the nervous system and regulates cortisol

  • Reduces blood sugar and normalizes insulin

  • Is essential for the production of thyroid hormone and can help regulate thyroid conditions

  • Aids us in getting a good night’s sleep

  • Fuels cellular energy

  • Supports healthy estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone

  • Activates Vitamin D3; without enough mag, D3 can’t do it’s thing (see more about Vitamin D3 below).

#2 — N-Aceytl Cysteine

  • It’s great for protecting the lungs, brain, kidneys, brain, and liver.

  • NAC protects us from toxins, like heavy metals, pesticides, and even chemical warfare (source)

  • It’s a great biofilm disruptor. (Biofilm is what bad bugs in your gut secrete around themselves that makes them impervious to treatment.)

  • NAC improves fertility in both males and females.

  • Boosts the immune system and helps protect against the flu.

  • Fights free radicals.

  • May help with muscle fatigue and inflammation after exercise.

#3 — B Complex There are 8 different B vitamins:

  • B1 (thiamine)

  • B2 (riboflavin)

  • B3 (niacin)

  • B5 (pantothenic acid)

  • B6

  • B7 (biotin)

  • B12

  • B9 (folate – NOT folic acid which is synthetic)

#4 — Probiotics + Prebiotics + Apple Cider Vinegar We need good bacteria and yeasts (probiotics) for proper gut function. Without them, our bodies can’t protect us from disease (because over 70% of our immune systems are found in our guts), can’t regulate our mental health (because our gut is the second brain), and can’t digest our food (which causes all sorts of issues). I’m a firm believer in getting as many strains of beneficial bacteria and yeast as possible, which is why I take 2, sometimes 3 probiotics at once. And I rotate my probiotics so that my gut is getting a steady supply and variety beneficial microorganisms.


#5 — Greens Powder Greens powders generally contain 24–30 or more different ingredients, which vary by brand. These commonly include:

  • Leafy greens: Spinach, kale, collards, parsley

  • Seaweed: Spirulina, chlorella, dulse, kelp

  • Other vegetables: Broccoli, beets, carrots, tomatoes, green cabbage

  • Grasses: Barley grass, wheatgrass, oat grass, alfalfa grass

  • High-antioxidant fruits: Blueberries, raspberries, goji and acai berries

  • Nutritional extracts: Green tea extract, grape seed extract, ginkgo biloba extract

  • Probiotics: Lactobacillus (L.) rhamnosus, L. acidophilus, Bifidobacterium lactis

  • Plant-based digestive enzymes: Amylase, cellulase, lipase, papain, protease

  • Herbs: Holy basil, echinacea, milk thistle

  • Mushrooms: Maitake mushroom extract, shiitake mushroom extract

  • Natural sugar substitutes: Stevia leaf extract, monk fruit extract

  • Extra fiber: Rice bran, inulin, apple fiber
