There are the vitamin addicts, if you have a shelf or more of supplements, that’s you. And then there are the dont-take-ums. If a client takes dozens of supplements, we’ll usually streamline things. But if you’re not taking anything, you probably should rethink it. Eating well may be enough to prevent a vitamin deficiency but it’s not enough for optimal health. In this week’s newsletter and podcast we’re breaking down this complicated topic.
We’ve created a starter pack The Foodtrainers Foursome. These are four supplements mostly everyone should take. As we explain on the podcast, if you are taking medications (especially blood thinners) you might want to check with your doctor. Otherwise: our Double D’s (higher dose vitamin D than we previously suggested), Chill Pills (magnesium, stress depletes it and your metabolism needs it), a potent probiotic (some cultures have an impact on your cravings and weight) as well as an omega 3 (even if you eat fish). We think this is far superior to taking a multi, we’re not fans of multivitamins.
On the podcast we also discuss what we take each day and the vitamin habits that work best for us.

Hi! Can you provide me the the brand/name of the CBD you both take at night and also the brain & focus supplement Lauren takes that she referenced in the show.
What is the reputable website to purchase supplements that you mentioned in the podcast – not the Foodtrainers one, just a general one? I cant find it and found it very useful. Thanks!
What was the kind of Magnesium you recommended for migraines in the Vitamin episode? Thank you
did you hear back on this?
Hello ladies!! I love your podcast and feel that I benefit from each and every one in multiple ways!! Thank you for the candid and personal clinical information, as well as the applicable and d understandable scientific reasoning to provide the why and the how.
Okay, so I have a question pertaining to a podcast from sometime last spring I believe (2022). One of the supplements in your shop had an unexpected, but welcome effect of tremendously improving nail strength and growth. I know it was not biotin or any other supplement intended to strengthen nails, but unfortunately, I do not remember which one it actually was, as it was such a surprise to hear that you had this fantastic, unexpected effect!
Thus, while taking 3-4 of your shop’s supplements over the course of a few months, I noticed the same overall improvement of the health of my nails, which was a wonderful surprise to me as well! I didn’t want to discontinue any of the supplements to decipher which one was tremendously helping my nails, so to this day I am not sure what caused the healthy growth. If you all know off hand (ha!😜) or have a general idea of which supplement it might be, please let me know!
