One of my goals for 2013 is to use science to improve my health. Even with a healthy diet, according to Dr. Oz, food today still lacks the mineral and vitamins of food grown 100 years because the soil has being depleted. Supplements are a low cost investment with big returns.

Below is what I take every day in addition to a healthy diet along with exercise.

Optimal Health

1) Multi Vitamin.
Product: Men’s Alive
2) Joint and Ligament
Product: Flexamin Double Strength. I will switch to Animal Flex, a better supplement, when my supplies run out.
3) Brain and Arteries
Product: 365 Wholefoods omega 3, fish oil with dha
4) Whey Protein
Product: Joe Robby Whey protein.
