What Supplements Should I Take?

A Hair Mineral Analysis is the best way to determine what specific supplements your body needs. However, for general health here are the best supplements to take:
1. Healthy Origins Vitamin D3 5,000 IU: Take 1 softgel daily with breakfast
*After 3 months of supplementation, get your blood test for vitamin D levels.  The level should be MINIMUM 40 ng/mL and optimally 50-80 ng/mL.  As a general rule, for every 1,000 IU you increase the dose, the level increases by 10 units. However, people can vary in their rate of vitamin D absorption.
