In addition to the services designed to optimize your health and well-being, our office also stocks specific products for our patients to purchase in support of their wellness journeys.
We invite you to visit the office and discuss any of the following products in greater detail to ensure these products will advance your goals and satisfy your expectations.
DHEA, clinically known as dehydroepiandrosterone is considered the counterbalance to cortisol, commonly known as the “stress hormone.” As you probably know, unchecked cortisol levels can wreak havoc on your health and result in weight gain or difficulty managing a healthy weight.
Our team offers DHEA to our patients because of its documented benefits, including:
- Mood regulation
- Bone health
- Healthy hormonal balance
- Support for stress response via improved ratios of cortisol to DHEA
- Promotes a healthier aging process and combats symptoms of inflammation
DHEA is administered in 25 mg capsules, taken once per day and is free from gluten and yeast, as well as any artificial colors or flavors.
DIM-I3C or Diindolylmethane (DIM) Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) has been shown to work wonders for those eager to establish better estrogen metabolism. This supplement is naturally derived from vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and kale, making it safe and effective, as well as beneficial for cellular health, particularly as found in the breast and prostate.
Favored by both men and women, in addition to supporting healthy hormone levels, DIM-I3C is also beneficial to:
- Bone health
- Cardiovascular health
- Cognitive health
- Fat distribution
- Reproductive health
DIM-I3C also offers additional benefits, which our team is happy to discuss with you in the context of your unique health needs, concerns, and goals.
Vitamin D₃ & K₂ (MK7)
A powerhouse combo, the synergistic relationship between vitamin D and vitamin K optimizes the body’s calcium absorption for better bone health. These two also support and protect cardiovascular health.
General benefits of vitamin D₃ and K₂ include the following:
- Healthy blood circulation
- Optimal bone building and overall health, including adequate calcium storage
- Increased immune function
- Blood sugar balance for those within normal levels and healthy cardiometabolic maintenance
The reason vitamin K is a critical component in formulations with vitamin D is for the adequate delivery and guidance of calcium to the bones, organs, joints, and arteries.
In this particular product, K₂ is preferred over K₁ because it empowers better bone building. While there are two types of K₂ used in supplements, (MK-4 and MK-7), MK-7 has six times the activity of MK-4 in the bloodstream, and remains in the blood up to 48 hours following intake.
