Dr Oz: DIM Complex Supplement Regulates Hormones
Dr Oz talked about the supplements you have never heard of, but might consider taking to aid in proper bodily functions. Read about chromium here. Now, a supplement that Dr Oz’s mother-in-law raves about: DIM complex. DIM is something that Dr Julie Chen likes to use in her practice that regulates hormones.
DIM not only regulates hormones, but this helps prevent cancers. DIM is produced naturally when we eat cruciferous vegetables, something Dr Oz dignifies as a dietary staple. There are currently human tests being done with DIM to see if it really does produce these cancer preventing benefits. The reason you want to take a supplement is because you would have to eat 2 lbs of the cruciferous veggies to get the recommended dosing.
Dr Chen also recommends this because it is absorbed easily into the body. As you age, you can become more inflamed and unable to really absorb the nutrients properly. If you take 100 mg a day if you are at a healthy weight, and 200 mg a day if you are overweight or have health issues. You also want it in a capsule form and see if the label says “black pepper” because that helps it work better. Dr Chen hasn’t seen any major issues with DIM, such as side effects. To help the absorption of DIM, she encourages consuming it with healthy fats and black pepper on the cruciferous vegetables.
Dr Oz: Krill Oil Supplement 3X Better than Fish Oil
Another supplement you can consider is Krill Oil. Dr Oz said it’s a good alternative to Fish Oil and contains the Omega-3s you need. Krill Oil may even be superior to Fish Oil.
The cool thing about Krill Oil is that it is packaged in a way that is absorbed into the body much faster. It can get to the heart and brain much faster. Fish Oil take longer to get in and longer to work. Another reason Dr Oz raves about Krill, it’s stronger. Krill has that bright red nutrient that boosts the heart healthy qualities of Omega-3s.
The reason a lot of people don’t take their Fish Oil is because they get burpy and smelly gas after taking it. It’s embarrassing and no one has time to deal with it. Krill Oil won’t give you that burp back. Fish Oil will separate in your stomach and sit on top, giving you the burp. Krill Oil will mix it, absorb and won’t give you the nasty burp.
Krill Oil will also help with cholesterol. The supplement is three times more powerful at helping your cholesterol, said Dr Oz. You’ll take 1 to 3 grams of Krill Oil as your normal dose. If you have a seafood allergy, steer clear of these supplements!
