Overall, Dr. Teitelbaum recommends combining the Daily Multivitamin (Energy Revitalization System™) and the Smart Energy System™ for almost everyone (the first two items shown below). NOTE: An exception to this is for people who have high blood pressure or diabetes, as the Smart Energy Capsules that are included in the Smart Energy System contain licorice, and licorice can increase blood pressure and blood sugar. Dr. T recommends those who have either of these condition avoid the Smart Energy System and instead take only the vitamin powder and S.H.I.N.E.® D-Ribose (the third item below).
Best Nutrition for Energy Support
Energy Revitalization System™ (Daily Multivitamin Drink Mix). This mega multivitamin powder drink mix is what I would start with (preferably along with the ribose below) One drink replaces over 35 supplement tablets and delivers the benefits of over 50 vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to help maintain mental alertness with all-day energy and endurance. It supplies all the micronutrients that the diet should be getting, except for essential fatty acids, iron and enzymes. And it gives these at optimal levels! So throw away those ridiculous handfuls of pills and get ready to feel great the smarter and healthier way!*
The Energy Revitalization System™ continues to be on back order with sellers all over the world. We are hoping it will be available at EndFatigue.com again by late March. In the meantime, the Alive!® Pea Shake Vanilla Multivitamin Drink Mix can be taken by itself as a substitute. To turbocharge energy production, Dr. Teitelbaum recommends adding the HRG80™ Red Ginseng chewable tabs 1-2 a day and/or the Smart the Energy System™ to this multivitamin drink mix. Effects are seen within a month and are quite dramatic with this combination. We will announce in the newsletter as soon as the Energy Revitalization System™ is back.
Note: If you don't like drink mixes, I recommend Clinical Essentials for your multivitamin.
Dr. Teitelbaum's Smart Energy System™. Dr. Teitelbaum's Smart Energy System™ is a bundled pairing of two nutritional supplements that are synergistic in their benefits to users. It includes Dr. T's S.H.I.N.E. D-Ribose (Bioenergy Ribose) and Smart Energy Capsules, which are a proprietary blend of herbal and nutritional ingredients. Studies show the combined nutrients in this bundle promote energy, overall well-being, sleep, mental clarity and cognition, relief of discomfort, mood and stress relief, thyroid and adrenal function, muscle mass and endurance, testosterone levels, sexual health and libido, weight/calorie burning, stamina and exercise endurance, and younger-looking skin.*
S.H.I.N.E.® D-Ribose with Bioenergy Ribose®. D-ribose is a simple, five-carbon sugar that is found naturally in our bodies. But it's not like any other sugar. When we consume ribose, the body treats it different than other sugars and preserves it for the vital work of making the energy molecules that power our hearts, muscles, brains, and every other tissue in the body. In our published study (download PDF), it increased energy an astounding average of 61%. Picture what a 61% increase in energy would feel like! Take a 5 gm scoop three times a day for six weeks. Then a single scoop once or twice daily will usually maintain the benefits. My morning energy drink? One scoop of the Energy Revitalization System plus one scoop of ribose. You'll begin to see the benefits by the time you're done with the first bottle of each.*
CoQ10 Bioactive Ubiquinol. CoQ10 fuels the thousands of mitochondria responsible for your heart's energy production, helps maintain energy levels, and promotes sharp brain function. This is a very well absorbed and bioactive form. For an outstanding morning energy cocktail, take CoQ10 along with ribose (5 gm) and the Energy Revitalization System vitamin powder.*
Adrenaplex®. Adrenal glands help your body maintain balance and energy levels during stress. But after extended periods of stress, they can become exhausted, which can quickly produce fatigue, and irritability when hungry. Adrenaplex is an all-natural formula that promotes healthy levels of cortisol—the stress hormone. Its specially formulated adrenal extract results in superior absorption to help you stay energized and keep you from getting irritable—even on the most stressful day.*
Best Nutrition for Sleep Support
Fatigued to Fantastic! Revitalizing Sleep Formula (Herbal Mix). The Revitalizing Sleep Formula is a mix of six powerful, yet gentle, sleep herbs that will help you fall asleep faster and maintain a healthy sleep cycle — without feeling groggy the next day. It can help relax your muscles, decreasing pain from muscle overuse, and can also help decrease anxiety during the day.*
Terrific Zzzz™. This mix of essential oils works very well with the Revitalizing Sleep Formula. Both of these can be combined with any sleep medications as well.*
Sleep Tonight!™ (Herbal Mix). If you are exhausted all day, but wide awake at bedtime, your adrenal stress hormones may be too low during the day but too high at night. If so, taking Sleep Tonight! may help you ease into sleep. Sleep Tonight! is clinically shown to reduce nighttime stress hormones by more than 60% after the first use — while still supporting these hormones during the day when you need them!
Jigsaw Health Magnesium with SRT (Magnesium). Magnesium is involved in more than 325 known biochemical reactions in the body, the most important of which is energy production. Magnesium activates adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy storage molecule, to create and store energy. Without magnesium, there is no energy. Without energy, there is no life. A magnesium deficiency can produce many unwanted symptoms — and may be an underlying cause of symptoms related to many chronic conditions. In fact, most Americans unknowingly have a magnesium deficiency.* This special slow-release formula eliminates the diarrhea that some people get from magnesium.*
5-HTP (5 Hydoxytryptophan). 5-HTP works by supporting optimal levels of the "happiness molecule" serotonin, which has also been shown to be critical for sleep. It takes 6 weeks to see the full effect of taking HTP. If you are on other serotonin-raising medications (antidepressants), you should consult a doctor before using it (and limit the dose to 200 mg).*
Hemp Select Softgel. 1 to 3 caps 2x daily for pain or calming and 3 to 5 at bedtime for sleep can be life changing for people. But any good hemp oil is going to be pricey. So I suggest you try just one bottle and see if it helps enough to justify the cost. Higher doses can also be used.*
HRG80™ Red Ginseng Chewable Tablets. For millennia, the old wild ginseng was the most popular herb in China. And for good reason! But the price rose to over $800 a pound, and so the wild ginseng disappeared. That left only the farmed version, which was not as effective.
But unique new aquaponics technology has resulted in a ginseng that has the same amount of the active components as the old wild ginseng. And it has been rocking people's worlds. So much so, that we recently began a study of 245 people, and hope to have the results in the next two months. But you don't have to wait. You can feel the magic now!*
Best for Overall Nutrition
Take the daily multivitamin powder, ribose, and coenzyme Q10 described under "Best Nutrition for Overall Energy Support" above. Then add the following:
Vectomega® (Fish Oil). Vectomega® is a revolutionary form of Omega-3 fatty acids from salmon. It is not a fish oil! Instead, the beneficial Omega-3s are bound to phospholipids that are more effectively absorbed than fish oil triglycerides. This means you only need to take one tablet a day instead of eight large fish oil capsules. You will be happy to say goodbye to fish oil burps!*
Best Nutrition for Occasional Pain Relief
Take the daily multivitamin powder and ribose described under "Best Nutrition for Overall Energy Support" above. Then add the following:
Curamin® (Curcumin). An amazing leap forward in herbal medicine has been the development of a very highly absorbed form of curcumin called "BCM 95." This has increased absorption over the previous best products by 693%, meaning 1 capsule replaces 7 old ones! Over 1,000 studies show curcumin to be a very promising herb. What really caught my attention was that we were getting some near miraculous reports of pain relief from many people who had suffered for years. It can be taken with other pain meds and supplements.*
End Pain Formula (Herbal Blend). This all-natural formula contains highly effective, clinically-studied ingredients to help you get back to your daily activities. It combines a unique triple-action herbal blend that includes the especially beneficial herbs boswellia and white willow bark, which provides soothing comfort to energize you for the day ahead, relief of occasional muscle pain due to overuse, and other immediate benefits that improve with continued use.*
Best Nutrition for Emotional Wellbeing
Take the daily multivitamin powder described under "Best Nutrition for Overall Energy Support" above, the fish oil described under "Best for Overall Nutrition", and the herbal sleep aids described under "Important Nutrition for Occasional Pain Relief" (Revitalizing Sleep Formula and Sleep Tonight!). Then add the following:
Calming Balance™. Formulated by Dr. Teitelbaum, Calming Balance™ (aka, the "Chill Pill") contains a synergistic blend of herbs, nutrients and amino acids that support the body's natural ability for relaxation. This unique nutrient and herbal blend can put you back in control, providing the tools you need to stay calm and relaxed. It starts to work immediately, and its effectiveness increases dramatically after six weeks. Many people also see a marked increase in energy.*
AnxioCalm® AnxioCalm® is clinically studied to quiet your nerves and relieve your occasional anxiety — without drowsiness! It's the safe and effective way to help relieve occasional anxiety and nervousness, everyday stresses, and excessive worry. In head on studies, this unique herb was as effective as medications at restoring calm. Without sedation or addiction. Take two twice a day for six weeks to see the full effect.*
Best Nutrition for Gut Health
Probiotic Pearls Elite™. When taken daily, probiotic pearls promotes regularity, relieves occasional gas, constipation and bloating, and boosts your body's natural defenses. Pearls Elite™ high-potency probiotics delivers 5 billion healthy bacteria, protected by stomach acid in a special pearl. As over 95% of probiotics are killed by stomach acid, this makes one pearl a day dramatically effective. You'd need 30 gallons of yogurt to get the benefits of just one pearl!*
