Which Supplements Are Most Beneficial?

Episode 566 1h 8m


We are living in a time unlike any before. For multiple reasons, we are now unable to get optimal amounts of all of the nutrients we need to function the way we were designed to. That’s why we need to turn to certain supplements to combat the nutritional deficiencies—like vitamin D, magnesium, omega 3 fatty acids, and more—the majority of us are faced with.

In today’s episode, I talk with Dhru Purohit, Dr. Elizabeth Boham, and Dr. James DiNicolantonio about why our modern diet and lifestyle are leaving us nutritionally deficient, the benefits of supplementation, and the importance of adequate magnesium levels.
