VIDEO: Mark Hyman, MD, on “Four Supplements Everyone Should Take”

  [ 8 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • June 15, 2011


“Has your doctor told you that supplements are useless? Not true,” says functional medicine pioneer Mark Hyman, MD.* Dr. Hyman - who likes to ask “Why are you sick?” rather than “What disease do you have?" - describes the mounting scientific evidence suggesting that “spending just pennies a day on a few key nutritional supplements can dramatically reduce sickness and chronic disease.”



* Dr. Hyman is a practicing physician and founder of The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, Massachusetts. The nutrients he discusses include calcium & vitamin D, folic acid, omega-3 fatty acids, and lutein/zeazanthin, based on the Lewin Group's critical review of the research literature.
