Dr Oz: Over 35 Vitamin Cheat Sheet
Dr Oz is helping you age with style thanks to his Over 35 Survival Kit. So far, your list includes beauty products like Siloxane Peptide Cream and even a Vicodin alternative called Lemon Balm Extract. For his next tricks, Dr Oz’s Vitamin Cheat Sheet highlighted some vitamins he thinks are essential for women by the time they hit their mid-30s. Put vegetarian Omega 3’s, Calcium Magnesium, Multivitamins and other must haves on your list.
Nearly 3/4 of Dr Oz’s audience said they have no idea what vitamins they need. That’s no surprise, because there are so many vitamins out there that it can be overwhelming to even know where to start. But to make things easier, Dr Oz has narrowed his list down to just four that he thinks should be a part of your daily routine.
Dr Oz’s Vitamin Cheat Sheet: Best Times for Vitamins
In addition to sharing what vitamins are most important for your daily regimen, Dr Oz shared the ideal times throughout the day to take each of them so you get the best effects.
- Breakfast – 600 mg DHA Omega 3s & 1/2 multivitamin
- 2 Hours After Breakfast – 600 mg Calcium & 400 mg Magnesium
- Dinner – 1/2 multivitamin
Dr Oz’s Vitamin Cheat Sheet: What To Look For in Multivitamins
You have probably heard the term multivitamins before, but it can mean different things depending on the brand and ingredients of a particular product. The idea behind these, according to Doctor Oz, is that most people don’t get enough vitamin nutrients from their food. Women especially tend to put others’ needs before their own and neglect nutritious meals.
Here are the most important vitamins to look for in a multivitamin product:
- Vitamin A
- B Vitamins
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin E
I wish Dr Oz would explain why there are so many different B vitamins as compared to all the others, but I guess I’ll have to wait for another episode to get that answer.
Dr Oz said to check your label and ensure you are getting 100% of the daily value for each of these vitamins. Watch out for products that will give you more than 100%, because too much is not always a good thing for vitamins.
Splitting up your multivitamin dosage between morning and evening keeps a dose in your system at all times.
Dr Oz’s Vitamin Cheat Sheet: Calcium Magnesium Supplements for Women
Calcium builds strong bones, but that natural structure weakens with age (another dreaded consequence of aging), and that accelerates by age 35. Dr Oz suggested pairing Calcium and Magnesium together, because Magnesium can prevent related constipation.
Dr Oz: Vegetarian Omega 3’s
Omega 3 fats seem like they are always in the news. Dr Oz did a show this year explaining why he believes Omega 3s are safe, and in this segment he talked about their benefits for lowered stress and better memory.
Omega 3s are found in food such as fish, but they’re another supplement that most of us aren’t getting enough of from our diets. That’s why the supplement form is so popular. Omega 3’s from a dark bottle keep light from destroying the nutrient content of the vitamins, so avoid a clear bottle.
For those who are vegetarian or just don’t like the fish taste, be sure to check out DHA Omega 3’s, which are a veggie option without the fishy aftertaste.
