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.
