Episode 28: How Supplements Supply Your Body Properly

    *This week we are going over supplements
(1:24) Supplements are personalized but we will go over the ones we have in store and they are individualized
(1:55) I don’t recommend anyone taking supplements without talking with their medical provider
(2:15) When we do supplement recommendations to our clients, we do lab work, blood work and much more based on their medical history and what supplements are best for them
(3:23) Most of us should be taking a multivitamin – make sure that the vitamins you already taking are not in the multivitamin
(4:47) CoQ10 may help with cholesterol and using a supplement called ubiquinol which can also help lowering cardiovascular inflammation
(5:27) There are different types of fish oil. Our fish oil doesn’t repeat on you, when it does it is awful. Also reduces bad cholesterol (LDL) while increasing good cholesterol (HDL.) Also promotes good bacteria in gut lining
6:45) Need to have balance of good and bad fats
(7:00) We have Vitamin D, B12 (helps with metabolism and energy), Magnesium, Vitamin C & we hear alot about these supplements. B Complex contains all of the vitamins
(8:00) Magnesium is important for our bowel movements, important for muscle cramps and calming us before sleep. We find magnesium oxide or citrate over the counter which we don’t usually recommend
(9:01) Magnesium Glycinate & Magnesium Taurate are very good types of magnesium, they aren’t as hard on intestinal lining
(9:25) Vitamin D is fat soluble, so this can reach a toxic level, they should be monitored. Though vitamin D deficiency is very common
(10:20) Vitamin C is helpful for the immune system though too much can cause loose stool
(10:35) Gut healing supplements can be very beneficial not only to help with bowel movements but also by reducing inflammation, helping digestion, decreasing antibody levels that rises with food sensitivities
(10:56) Glutamine is a supplement that is used for muscle recovery but with that also helps with the gut lining
(11:30) Probiotics are a touchy subject. Some benefit from it, some can’t tolerate it because of a leaky gut
(12:28) Berberine helps with glucose metabolism or lowering blood sugar stores which helps increase burn fat. Be careful with medication interference
(13:15) We do use a supplement in our practice for people with autoimmune disease, specifically Hashimotos which can help with antibody levels and inflammation
(13:40) There are different supplements that help different people
(14:15) We do use supplements that help with sleep. I am against prescription medication for sleep but there are many natural aids that help with sleep
(15:48) L-Theanine is a very helpful amino acid to help reduce the stress response, adrenal fatigue and keeping that more stabilized
16:29) Methyl folate is one of the supplements I recommend for infertility
(17:10) If you have a question about any supplement, I recommend being careful with what supplements you use, as not all have been researched
(18:00) We use pure encapsulation in our office which is a hypoallergenic supplement and they do their own studies. It is important to know the quality behind your supplements. I don’t recommend going to the store and picking out any supplement
(18:58) Supplements can be helpful in a multitude of areas, just make sure it is right for you.

(19:22) We are going to dive in on helping you guys take that next step to your overall wellness

Dr. Jake Berman

After graduating from the University of Florida, Dr. Jake Berman, PT, DPT sought out mentorship first from Bob Seton in Destin, FL and then from Aaron Robles in Jacksonville, FL. Both of these mentors have 20+ years of experience helping people keep active and mobile so they can enjoy high quality active lifestyles. What Jake found was that back pain was by far the most debilitating pain and the highest factor leading to decreased physical activity later in life. These experiences are what inspired Jake to specialize in helping people aged 50+ keep active, mobile and pain free despite the aging process. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to alleviate somebody’s back pain so that they can get back to living their best life- especially in Naples! Over the years of helping 100’s of people aged 65-75 become stronger and pain free, one thing for sure has become apparent: “he who rests rots”. Jake is a firm believer that we become stiff then old, not old then stiff. Seriously, think about it...
