Overall, Dr. Teitelbaum recommends combining the daily multivitamin, Clinical Essentials™, 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 conditions avoid the Smart Energy System and instead take only Clinical Essentials and S.H.I.N.E.® D-Ribose (the third item below).
Best Nutrition for Energy Support
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.*
Clinical Essentials. This tablet-form multivitamin and mineral supplement is what I would start with (preferably along with the ribose below). This excellent daily supplement provides 30 premium nutrients, no vitamin aftertaste, and is gentle on the stomach. It provides effective support for energy, mood and stamina with bioidentical B vitamins in their most effective form for optimal utilization in the body. It also promotes a stronger immune system, bone density, and heart health. It also includes vitamins C, E and A with selenium to support healthy antioxidant defense.*
To turbocharge energy production, Dr. Teitelbaum recommends adding the HRG80™ Red Ginseng chewable tablets 1-2 a day and/or the Smart the Energy System™ to this multivitamin. Effects are seen within a month and are quite dramatic with this combination.
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.*
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 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).*
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®. 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.*
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 "Best Nutrition for Sleep Support" (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.*
