The Joys and Benefits of Living Compassionately and Healthfully. In Other Words: Vegan.

My Favorite Supplements

I always recommend a whole foods plant-based diet and urge people to get their nutrients directly from the source: plants. Just as people are trying to find an easy solution for wellness through pharmaceuticals, many are also replacing proper eating with vitamin and mineral supplements. Though supplements may be essential when there is a true deficiency or need, they can be unnecessary or even detrimental when we use them as a substitute for a healthful diet.

I explore this topic at length in my podcast episode on supplements, and I encourage you to listen to it. Based on extensive research and the recommendations of well-respected nutritionists and doctors, I am confident that including certain supplements in my diet – as insurance NOT as a replacement for healthful eating -  is a way to achieve optimal health. I’m thrilled to be partnered with Dr. Joel Fuhrman, as I believe his work is of the highest integrity and his products are of the highest quality.

Dr. Fuhrman’s DHA Purity 100% Vegan DHA (long chain Omega–3)

This particular DHA, sourced from microalgae, provides all the good stuff without the saturated fat, dietary cholesterol, animal protein, or heavy metals!  DHA Purity now comes in an all–new, purified liquid form of very highly concentrated DHA so that it can be digested easier.
