Healthy Headstart | The Supplement Plan

This supplement plan will help you glow inside and out …. it is basically high in antioxidants and very supportive to the liver, which if we are giving ourselves a break from the normal rubbish we eat and drink will probably be working quite hard and be in  need of a little support!

This supplement protocol is designed to give a real boost to the body, and will help get your gut working better, your metabolism back on track and hopefully help to reduce any cravings. These changes should continue after the two weeks and after you have finished the supplements as you will have done a lot of work to reset yourself!

I’ve used mostly Nutri Advanced and Lamberts supplements, you don’t have to use them but make sure you get a good quality alternatives. When it comes to supplements it really is ‘you get what you pay for’!

With the following supplement protocol, please take them until you have finished the pot, you should not need to continue after that, I would hope that you will be eating the perfect diet full of nutritious food and won’t need supplementation.

IF however you feel you do still feel rubbish then come and see me or go and see a healthcare professional to go through what is going on for you.

AND IF you don’t feel well at any point try to take a day off and return to the protocol the following day, if the feelings persists then step away from the supplements and go through it with a professional. They are quite directed supplements and you may experience a headache or some fatigue with the whole program.

Psyllium & Apple Pectin

This supplements blend of psyllium husks, activated charcoal, lactobacillus, apple pectin and chlorophyll, together with vitamin C and magnesium really help to support your digestive health.

You could also use normal psyllium husk instead. I do like the other ingredients in this particular product though.

The idea of this product is to help get your digestion moving and help the body get rid of toxins.

Directions: For Nutri advanced take 3 in the morning and 3 in the evening with a meal. For other supplements follow instructions on the label.

N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine

NAC provides the body with an amino acid called l-cysteine. L-cysteine is one of the amino acids used as building blocks for protein in the body. This is a great, great liver and immune supporting supplement. If you are a big drinker, sugar eater or coffee drinker this will really help you along the road to ‘Sainthood!’… no seriously it is fantastic for you.

Directions: Take one when you wake up and one before bed.

 

 

MetaLipoate 300(Nutri’s name), basically Alpha Lipoic Acid

This is great for everyday health but particularly good for your blood sugar levels and helps the production of glutathione in the body which, is the ‘mother of all antioxidants’ and our production of it goes down as we get older!

Directions: Take 4 throughout the day. at breakfast, lunch, dinner and bedtime.

 

Celapro

Celapro has a great combination of herbal extracts and phytochemical. It contains extracts of green tea and turmeric (Curcuma). Curcuma, one of my fave ingreddients has significant antioxidant and anti inflammatory properties.

Directions: Take one in the morning and one in the evening with food.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C contributes to the normal function of the immune system and to the protection of cells from oxidative stress caused by ‘free radicals’. Its one of the most common vitamins around and is super useful when our immune system is being stressed by toxins!

Directions: Take 2,000mg for the 2 week period, then 1000mg for the following 2 weeks.

MegaMag Muscleze

This is an optional one! Magnesium contributes to the normal function of the nervous system and muscles. It also supports you if you need to relax a bit, if you re very stressed and if you are having trouble sleeping it is wonderful. Magnesium is one of the minerals we are often deficient in and so taking it for a few weeks is no bad thing!

Directions: For Nutri Advanced take 1 teaspoon in water in the morning and one at bedtime. For other brands you want to be making around 400mg in the morning and 400mg at bed time.
