Conditionally Recommended Supplements
Vitamin Advisor image

Dr Fuhrman and his medical staff will at times recommend one or more of these supplements for specific medical conditions as part of a treatment plan depending on each individual’s situation and progress. They are here for the convenience of these individuals requiring conditional products.

These supplements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
Products listed are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease.

Resveratin

Resveratin™ is a bioflavonoid complex containing three synergistic antioxidants: pterostilbene (methylated resveratrol), resveratrol, and quercetin. These three compounds are being studied extensively in the areas of cardiovascular health, cell replication, capillary integrity and anti-aging. Resveratrol is a natural plant product that is found in grapes, various berries, plums, peanuts, and pines. All three ingredients are antioxidants that have been shown to work synergistically to protect cellular health. Resveratin™ may be used as part of a treatment plan for a variety of conditions including neurological diseases such as dementia, inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. It is controversial whether these supplemental ingredients could have anti-aging effects in humans as they do in animal models.

Consult your doctor before using Resveratin™, especially if you have a medical condition, are taking medications, or are pregnant or lactating.
Keep out of reach of children.
Dosing: Take 1 capsule twice daily or as directed by your doctor.

Omega-Pure 780

Omega-Pure 780™ is an ultra-pure, concentrated fish oil sourced from the arctic waters of Norway. To assure maximum freshness, the oil is molecularly distilled and is stabilized with vitamin E (as mixed tocopherols). It is also independently verified to be free of PCB™ s, heavy metals, and pesticides. It is used when higher levels of supplementation are required than could be met with an algae-based product. EPA and DHA are two important ingredients in fish oil that promote cardiovascular health by supporting optimal triglyceride and cholesterol levels and by reducing platelet aggregation. Fish oil has also been shown to benefit some arthritis patients and be useful for long-term brain and nervous system function. The anti-inflammatory effect of EPA in fish oil is helpful in the treatment of inflammatory conditions such as asthma, skin disorders, or autoimmune conditions. DHA and EPA in fish oil is particularly useful in preventing and treating dementia as well as psychiatric diseases such as depression or anxiety. These capsules contain more active ingredients (EPA and DHA) than typical fish oil capsules, so less capsules are required.

Consult your doctor before use.
Keep out of reach of children.
Dosage:
Take 2 capsules daily or as directed by your doctor.

Liquid D3

Liquid D3™ comprises lanolin-derived cholecalciferol provided in a convenient concentrated liquid base of sunflower oil and purified water. Vitamin D deficiency is very prevalent and is implicated in what appears to be a wide array of conditions and diseases such as cancer, heart disease, autoimmune conditions, depression, birth defects, and diabetes, just to name a few. Vitamin D3 has a longer duration of action than vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol). Supplementation with vitamin D3 such as Liquid D3™ may be needed even though you might be already taking OsteoSun or another vitamin D supplement if a blood test indicates you are a person who requires even more Vitamin D. A blood level of vitamin D (25-hydroxy) is needed to determine what amount of vitamin D is needed for each individual.

Consult your doctor before using Liquid D3™ and to have your vitamin D level measured. Keep out of reach of children.
Dosing: Use as directed by your doctor. 1 drop (not dropperfull) contains 1,000 IU of vitamin D3, so follow instructions and take care to avoid overdosing which can lead to toxic levels of vitamin D.

ALAmax CR

Alpha-Lipoic Acid is found in small amounts in almost all foods, but slightly more so in spinach, broccoli, and yeast. ALA is a natural antioxidant that effectively neutralizes free radicals, and it appears to have a beneficial effect for those with diabetes , increasing insulin sensitivity. ALA has been shown to be effective at treating diabetic neuropathy, liver disease, and is a chelating agent for heavy metal toxicity. ALA has also been used experimentally and/or clinically with encouraging results in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, the prevention or slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease and other causes of cognitive dysfunction, in treating migraines, in treating Parkinson’s Disease, and for multiple sclerosis.

If you have diabetes or are pregnant or lactating, please consult your doctor before taking ALAmax CR™ .
Consult your doctor before use if you are allergic to alpha lipoic acid or other sulfur-containing compounds.
Dosing: Take 1 tablet 30 minutes before breakfast and 1 tablet 30 minutes before dinner or as directed by your doctor.

NAC

N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a derivative of the dietary amino acid L-cysteine, which serves as a precursor for the synthesis of glutathione. Glutathione plays a critical role in protecting the liver from toxins and protecting cells from oxidative damage. Low levels of glutathione have been found to be associated with many diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, and low glutathione levels have been implicated in the pathogenesis of a number of diseases that are associated with oxidative stress. NAC is also known for its mucolytic properties and its ability to chelate heavy metals. NAC™ may be part of a treatment plan for neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, lung diseases such as COPD, psychiatric diseases such as depression, liver disease, chronic infections, or any other disease associated with a compromised antioxidant defense where a higher glutathione level is desired.

Consult your doctor before using NAC™ , especially if you have a medical condition, are taking other medications, or are pregnant or lactating.
Avoid if you have a history of or current peptic or duodenal ulcer or if you have an organ transplant.
Dosing: Take 1 capsule twice daily or as directed by your doctor.

Borage CP-240

Borage CP-240™ softgels contain pure cold-pressed borage seed oil extracted from Borago Officinalis, a blue flowering plant. Borage CP-240™ provides the highest percentage (24%) of Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) of any plant source. Metabolites of GLA are important in nerve membrane structure, nerve blood flow, and nerve conduction. GLA has an anti-inflammatory effect and has been shown to be useful for some people with skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema and asthma, and may be helpful in other inflammatory conditions.

Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or lactating, or if you are taking blood-thinning medications or supplements.
Dosage: Take 1 to 2 softgels per day with meals.

bottom bar

Red Yeast Rice

Red yeast rice is developed by fermenting Monascus purpureus (red yeast) on commercially grown rice. The resulting fermented product contains at least nine naturally occurring compounds called monacolins. Monacolins act very similarly to the active ingredient in drugs called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins) which are used for lowering cholesterol. Red Yeast Rice™ may be used as part of a treatment plan for lowering cholesterol, but only after other treatment options are attempted including living a healthy lifestyle. Because red yeast rice acts similarly to statin drugs, it could carry some of the risks that statin drugs do such as muscle problems or liver problems. Red yeast rice has been reported to have much less pronounced side effects if any in those that take it, so it likely is considerably safer than long-term use with statins.

Consult your doctor before using Red Yeast Rice™ to discuss if it is appropriate for your specific treatment plan, especially if you are currently taking medications.
Do not use Red Yeast Rice™ if you are allergic to yeast or rice, if you are pregnant or lactating, if you have liver disease, or if you are under 18 years of age. Dosing: As directed by your doctor.

5 HTP CR

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a precursor to serotonin and supplementing with 5-HTP raises levels of serotonin in the blood. Serotonin plays a major role in regulating mood and behavior. Several studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of 5-HTP supplementation to reduce anxiety, depression, insomnia, headaches (including migraines), and pain in those with fibromyalgia. 5-HTP-CR™ is sourced from the seed of the Griffonia simplicifolia, an African shrub and is rigorously tested for purity. As this supplement raises serotonin, it has a similar effect as the commonly prescribed drugs, Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) such as Prozac or Zoloft.

Do not use in combination with SSRIs unless under supervision by a physician. Be sure to consult your doctor to discuss other drugs that might interact with 5-HTP such as other drugs for depression, anxiety, migraines, Parkinson’s Disease, or psychiatric disorders. Do not take 5-HTP in combination with other supplements containing L-tryptophan, 5-HTP, St. John’s Wort, SAMe, or Hawaiian woodrose.
Do not use if you are pregnant, lactating, or under the age of 18. Only use this supplement under the supervision of a doctor.
Dosing: Take 1 tablet up to 2 times a day with a meal.

CoQmax CF

CoQmax CF™ is an all-natural, lipid-stabilized CoQ10 that is highly absorbable. Coenzyme Q10 is a natural vitamin-like substance that is produced by our bodies. Coenzyme Q10 is a key in the formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the body’s major form of stored energy. Studies have shown a correlation with taking drugs called HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins), which are used for lowering cholesterol, and lower levels of circulating CoQ10 in those that take this type of drug. Even though taking CoQ10 will raise blood levels in those that are on statin drugs, it is still unclear whether taking CoQ10 in supplemental form will raise the level of CoQ10 in tissues such as muscle where it is needed the most. Supplementation has also not been shown to be effective at relieving the side effects of taking statin drugs such as myopathy (muscle aches). Until new research more explicitly describes the role of CoQ10, and because of its safety profile, we recommend it for those taking statin type drugs including red yeast rice for the conservative treatment of low levels of CoQ10 associated with these drugs. CoQ10 may also be part of a treatment plan for Parkinson’s Disease.

Consult your doctor before taking CoQmax CF™ .
Dosing: Take 1 or 2 softgels daily.

Iron Glycinate

Iron Glycinate™ features 100% fully-reacted iron bis-glycinate chelate. Iron is used primarily as part of hemoglobin and myoglobin, which carry and release oxygen in tissue. Iron Glycinate™ may be part of your doctor’s treatment plan to support and maintain a healthy iron level because of poor dietary intake of iron, aging, heavy menstruation, pregnancy, achlorhydria, blood loss, or other conditions. This particular form of iron at this dose is non-constipating in most patients.

As taking too much iron can be problematic and potentially dangerous, Iron Glycinate™ should be used with care and only under the direction of your doctor.
Keep out of reach of children.
Dosing:
Take one capsule daily or as directed by your doctor.

PepciX

PepciX™ is a safe, high-potency, stable, patented zinc-carnosine complex with proven efficacy for the relief of gastric discomforts and protection of the gastric tissues. PepciX™ supports the stomach’s natural “cytoprotective” defense mechanisms. Together, zinc and L-carnosine are able to help the body’s own ability to maintain a healthy balance of the stomach lining by promoting repair of damaged tissue, by stabilizing membranes of the stomach, by combating free radicals, by reducing inflammation, and by promoting protective mucous production. Zinc-carnosine complex has also been shown to inhibit the growth of Helicobacter pylori, a common strain of bacteria known to weaken the stomach lining. PepciX™ may be used as part of a treatment plan along with a healthy diet for conditions such as peptic ulcer disease, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or other related conditions.

Consult your doctor before using PepciX™ .
Keep out of reach of children.
Dosing: Swallow whole or chew 1 tablet with or after a meal, morning and evening or as directed by your doctor.

SedaLin

SedaLin™ is a non-addictive, all-natural blend of Magnolia officinalis and Ziziphus spinosa that relaxes tense muscles and calm an overactive central nervous system by normalizing nighttime stress hormone levels. Magnolia bark is rich in a biphenol compound called honokiol which is an anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing) agent. Ziziphus spinosa is a plant with a sedative affect. SedaLin™ may be used as part of a treatment plan for persons with insomnia or anxiety. Because SedaLin™ is a sedative and can cause drowsiness, caution is advised when performing tasks that require attention such as driving until you know how SedaLin™ affects you.

Consult your doctor before using SedaLin™ , especially if you are on any medication or medical treatment.
SedaLin™ is not recommended during pregnancy or lactation.
Dosing: Take 1 capsule nightly for a minimum of two weeks as a sleep aid. Many people achieve the desired effect the first night; however others need the full two weeks. Use as directed by your doctor if using as an anxiolytic.

Tegreen 97

Tegreen 97™ is a preparation of green tea leaf extract standardized to 97% polyphenols-two thirds of which are catechins. Each capsule is equivalent to the polyphenol content of approximately seven cups of green tea without the caffeine. In the body, the antioxidants in Tegreen 97 have been shown to help support the antioxidant defense system in the presence of pollution, stress, and toxins. Green tea extract may be part of a treatment plan for conditions where an increase in antioxidants may be beneficial in conjunction with a high antioxidant diet.

Do not exceed 1,200 mg green tea in combination with other green tea-containing supplements.
Keep out of reach of children.
Consult your doctor if
you are pregnant, lactating, or have any medical problems.
Dosing: Take 1-2 capsules twice daily.

L-Glutamine Powder

L-Glutamine is a free form, non-essential amino acid that is pharmaceutical grade and ultra-pure for maximum bioavailability. It has no fillers or additives, and is HPLC verified. Glutamine is found in a variety of foods that we eat. Glutamine is 100% vegetable based. Glutamine has been shown to reduce inflammation at the intestines helping the integrity of the intestines and modifying the immune system. Glutamine may be used as part of a treatment plan for autoimmune disease, asthma, or allergies.

Do not take glutamine unless directed by your doctor, especially if you are pregnant, lactating, or have kidney problems.
Keep out of reach of children.
Dosing: Take 1/2 scoop twice daily or as directed by your doctor.

Taurine

Taurine is a free form nonessential amino acid that is pharmaceutical grade and ultra-pure for maximum bioavailability. This taurine product is made through chemical synthesis and does not come from animal product. It has no fillers or additives, and is HPLC verified. Taurine is found in food and is made in our bodies by converting other proteins in our diet from foods, and in a typical person enough taurine is made in the body to support health. Taurine, however, may be low in a small percentage of persons eating a strict vegan diet or one that is very low in animal products depending on their individual ability to make taurine in their bodies. If your doctor tested your amino acid profile and found your taurine level to be too low, then this product may be used as a supplement. Vegan athletes may be recommended supplementation as well.

Do not take taurine unless directed by your doctor, especially if you are pregnant, lactating, or have kidney problems.
Keep out of reach of children.
Recommended Dose:
1 - 2 capsules daily, as directed by physican
