Dr. Oz Recommends New Supplements

supplements

In a recent episode of The Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz named four supplements that can be easily added to a vitamin regimen, including one to metabolize carbs and one for detoxing the liver.

1. White Bean Extract – Dr. Oz recommends taking 500 mg before a meal heavy in carbs as it can prevent the enzyme alpha-amylase (which occurs naturally in the body) from breaking down carbs into sugar. The goal is to leave behind less sugar for the body to turn into fat.

2. Bacopa – Taking 300 mg per day can boost memory and brain health.

3. Milk Thistle – Taking 200 mg per day can help the liver flush out toxins from food and beverages.

4. Krill Oil – Dr. Oz explained new research shows Krill oil may work faster and stronger than fish oil for heart health, is less contaminated and has no fishy smell. He recommended 300 mg a day.

    Milk thistle is said to be helpful to the heart by lowering the LDL in so called “bad” cholesterol levels. Studies of this benefit have so far only been tested on people with diabetes, who usually have high cholesterol. Further studies on otherwise healthy people are slated to be performed in the future.
