In an abundant world of supplement choices, determining the most suitable ones to promote optimal health and well-being can prove to be a daunting task. However, by incorporating vital supplements into your everyday regimen, you can effectively support your overall well-being.  Through years of research and successful outcomes, the team at Amy Brenner MD & Associates in Cincinnati, has recognized a few supplements most people would benefit from. So let’s talk about prioritizing the five essential supplements that everyone should be taking!

Fish oil

Our top choice –  AB Omega

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for optimal health but cannot be produced by our bodies. AB Omega is a premium Omega-3 supplement that provides a range of benefits, including:

  • Improving heart health, joint health, gut health, and inflammatory conditions.
  • Supporting neurological, cognitive, and mood function.
  • Ensuring the highest amount of EPA/DHA per dose, surpassing many popular store brands.

When selecting Omega-3 supplements, prioritize quality, purity, and triglyceride form for optimal absorption.

Even if you maintain a well-balanced diet that includes organic produce and meats while avoiding processed foods, it’s important to acknowledge that significant nutrient deficiencies can still occur. That’s why our list of the 5 essential supplements includes a Multivitamin. While it may seem unnecessary for those who prioritize a healthy diet, a Multivitamin serves as an important safeguard against potential nutrient gaps that can arise, ensuring you meet your body’s needs for optimal health and well-being.

We have two great options for a Multivitamin:

PureGenomics Multivitamin is a highly bioavailable supplement that addresses common genetic variations in the methylation pathway. Key features include:

    • Providing essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
    • Formulated to meet the needs of individuals with sensitivities.
    • Helping to bridge the nutrient gap and support overall health.

MitoCORE is a comprehensive supplement designed to support Phase I and II Detoxification, cellular energy production, immune function, and mitochondrial health. It contains vital nutrients such as Alpha Lipoic Acid and N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine, offering the following benefits:

    • Enhancing detoxification processes.
    • Supporting energy production at the cellular level.
    • Boosting immune function and overall mitochondrial health.

Vitamin d3

Our top choice – AB D3 Daily (5k IU) or AB D3 Weekly (50k IU)

Vitamin D is essential for various bodily functions. In regions above the 37th parallel (refer to the image), where the skin synthesizes minimal vitamin D from sunlight, taking a Vitamin D supplement becomes particularly important. Research has demonstrated that maintaining optimal Vitamin D levels can provide protection against:

  • Osteoporosis
  • Hypertension
  • Cancer
  • Autoimmune diseases

Skin Synthesis of Vitamin D in the gray portion is very low.


Our top choice – AB Probiotic

Gut health is plays a major role in almost every bodily function. An imbalance in your gut can have a profound effect on various aspects of your well-being, including your physical sensations, mood, energy levels, and even hormone regulation. Probiotics play a crucial role in supporting gastrointestinal balance and a healthy immune system. AB Probiotic is a high-quality probiotic supplement that offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Assisting in the absorption of vital vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
  • Promoting a diverse population of beneficial bacteria in the gut, potentially impacting chronic disease.
  • Increasing Secretory IgA for Enhanced Gut Immunity
  • Preventing and treating various conditions such as urinary tract infections, bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections, bloating, indigestion, tooth decay, periodontal disease, and skin infections.

Supplement for Individuals Over 50: CoQ-10

For individuals aged 50 and above, CoQ10 is highly recommended. It plays a vital role in immune system support, cardiovascular health, and energy generation. In a CoQsol formula, maximum absorption is offered compared to traditional powder-based supplements. CoQ-10 is found abundantly in the mitochondrial membrane and holds significant importance in synthesizing adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is a crucial molecule of chemical energy that serves as the foundation for all cellular functions.
