I have recently taken a VERY aggressive move towards using supplements in an effort to "lose" some meds. I have been working with a Cleveland Clinic Rheumatologist and Endocronologist on this and have managed to come off my cholestrol meds and a blood pressure pill.
Before I started this plan, I was missing 1-2 weeks a month of work due to extreme fatigue, and muscle pains, my sugar was rollercoastering constantly. I had a heart attack April 21, 2011 and received two stints (1 each cath procedure in 2 processes done in a 24 hour period).
Now, I have completed 2 5k races, and have recently started a half-marathon walk-run training program and my fasting BS levels are in the 100-120 range....and my Humalog mealtime insulin use is apx 50% of what it was, I am currently looking at reducing my Lantus dose. My goal is to seriously get off ALL meds.
Anyway, my current supplements are:
Omega-3 EPA & DHA 4,000 mg a day
Multi-Vitamin AM & PM
Ubiquinol CoQ10 200 mg a day
CinSulin with InSea2 each pill contains Cinnamon 175 mg, 100 mg of Seaweed and 133 mg of Crominex 3+ I take 4 a day
R-Lipoic Acid 1200 mg a day (600 in Am/600 in PM)
Niacin B3 (flushing) 1000 mg every AM
Green Coffee Extract (Chlorogenic Acid)1200 mg daily
Mitochondrial Energy Optimizer with BioPQQ 480 mg
I am curious what other people are using and having success with.
