Supplements

Nutrition:

For general nutrition, it is best NOT to take a multi-vitamin as it contains synthetic and inorganic vitamins and minerals that tax the system and create toxic waste buildup.

Nettle:

Alfalfa:

One of the greatest herbs for all-around nutrition. This is why it is favored for racehorses, it provides energy and crucial building blocks for functions throughout the body. High in Vitamin K and Vitamin C, also contains Copper, Manganese, Folate, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Magnesium, and Iron. Approximately 3g of protein per 100g.

DO NOT buy Alfalfa that isn’t Organic or certified GMO free. Almost all non-organic Alfalfa is GMO.

Sources:
Monterey Bay Spice Co. is our preferred source of whole dry herbs. However, the following options from Amazon are good as well. Whole herb form is great for teas and fomentations/poultices. Powder is best for smoothies or adding to food and the tincture is the easiest option and the fastest application to the blood.

Heart

Cayenne:

One of the best things you can do for your heart is to get the blood flowing properly to the heart. Heart attacks happen when the blood flow (life flow) is hindered to the heart, effectively starving it of nutrition. Cayenne works by moving blood, breaking up plaque and equalizing blood flow throughout the body to prevent plaque build up and cardiac arrest.

Everyone should carry a Cayenne Tincture with them just in case. Applied to the tongue it can quickly bring life back. Cayenne powder is great for food and also Cayenne tea. You can add up to a teaspoon of Cayenne to warm water and drink it 3 times a day. This greatly benefits the system in so many ways, helps keep the blood flowing and alleviates pain and discomfort in joints. We do not recommend the Cayenne capsules for most people as the body has a built in mechanism of taste that produces enzymes to assist digestion, when we bypass that either through capsule or IV we suddenly shock the body with a high dose of a substance it does not expect. This can produce discomfort in the stomach.

Dr Schulze’s Cayenne Tincture is the best available on the internet. There is none better! In fact it is so good that Amazon won’t even let him sell it but you can buy it on his website here:

VIGOR Organic Circulation Complex – This is a really unique and interesting tincture that combines Cayenne with Ginger, both of which are circulation herbs and adds in a brain herb: Ginkgo Biloba (which needs Cayenne to break the blood-brain barrier), Garlic which is antibiotic, Parsley which is blood-building and Willow Bark which is pain relieving and calming. It is made using GLYCERIN instead of Alcohol. So if you have convictions against Alcohol this would be the substitute as most tinctures use Alcohol due to its sanitation.

Reviews indicate the heat is mild so do not expect it to have the Cayenne potency of Dr. Schulze’s Cayenne Tincture. Reviewers mention pain and cramps disappearing within days, improved stamina and strength, better feeling to extremities. One reviewer noted that her mother was told she would need amputation of her leg. After starting this product her Doctor noted improved circulation which is unheard of. Overall this product would be great for anyone trying to improve circulation.

Hawthorn:

Dr. Schulze’s Heart Formula

is the best supplement you could possibly get for your heart. It is again so good that Amazon won’t let him sell it. But you can get it on his website:
https://www.herbdoc.com/heart-formula

Amazing formula contains the potent Scientifically proven Hawthorn berry which not only reduces the chances of a Heart attack but in the event of an attack reduces damage caused by the attack. Cayenne and Hawthorn work very synergistically. This formula is a no-brainer for anyone who cares about their heart.

Ingredients:
Organic Hawthorn Berry,
Organic Red Clover Blossom,
Wild Harvested Cactus Grandiflorus Stem and Flower,
Organic Motherwort Herb,
Organic Garlic Bulb,
Organic Hawaiian Yellow Ginger Root,
Wild Harvested Habanero Pepper 

A few other options if for whatever reason you simply want the Hawthorn alone.

Vitamin D3

After analyzing all the research available on Vitamin D there are several points we believe are important to consider. First of all, there is NO current standardized test for Vitamin D3, in fact the testing is so poor that you can send the same sample to the same company and have it tested and get two different results. This carries considerable concern as it effectually means that your levels may not be what the lab results indicate.

Secondly, high-dose Vitamin D3, according to current research is not advisable and may even increase mortality risk. Low-dose over-time would best and exposure to sun even better. The sun is the greatest and best source of Vitamin D3 and will NEVER be replaced by a supplement.

That being said, if you must supplement use a more natural form such as Lichen-harvested D3 which in our view is the best supplement form.

For Kids:

Unfortunately, most kids supplements are even bigger piles of garbage than adult supplements. Reason is, they add a ton of sugar so that kids will swallow the crap. Processed sugar destroys calcium and hinders multiple processes throughout the body and should be avoided at all costs. That being said if your child is deficient in D3 and you need to supplement try one of these.

Mary Ruths Gummies is based on Lichen but also adds Cane Sugar, Tapioca Syrup and apparently synthetic (does not say) Vitamin C. I am against all forms of synthetic Vitamins as they are PURE GARBAGE! That being said this is still probably the best kids D3 available. Most gummy supplements are really really terrible and have a ton of crap in them.

After reviewing each of the following products they are very similar with slight deviations… I would prefer they flavored with pure fruit instead of processed sugar and I don’t like the citric acid but these appear to be the best gummies available on the market at this time

Women:

Red Raspberry Leaf

The greatest herb for women, hormones and all that goes with it is definitely Red Raspberry leaf. It is used frequently for mares for this purpose and has a long history of human use. Every woman should reach for this herb FIRST before ever considering any drug

Frontier Coop is probably the cheapest source for Red Raspberry leaves. They should be bought whole/cut/sifted and never in tea bag form. Tea bag form almost always means it is depleted. I would recommend the whole herb tea form however if you can’t handle that the capsules are an alternative. Note that some people will only see benefit from the tea form but this is a small percentage.

Testimonials say it regulates cycles and relieves pain associated. It can induce labor so use during pregnancy, while potentially beneficial, should be consulted with a natural health practitioner. Of note is that “things” can get worse before they get better so worse periods may actually mean it IS working. This can take a month or more to regulate properly and see results. Some women notice improved mood and happiness and improved fertility. So if you are trying NOT to have a baby you might consider that.

Note: Tincture is not the preferred method and while it is recommended by some Naturopathic Doctors the case studies just don’t support it. Capsule or tea form seem to be the best overall. I am including it for your preference though
