Top 10 Supplement Recommendations from Dr. Derek Murphy

“What vitamins or supplements should I take?” That is a common question I get asked by patients. Honestly, answering this question depends on your current state of health and what medical conditions you might have. However, I believe some supplements and vitamins can help most people. The following 10 supplements in Orlando are favorites for myself and my patients. Before adding any herbs or supplements, I recommend consulting with your doctor to ensure it is safe for you and there are no interactions with your medications. I would also like to make another important point that the quality of supplements or vitamins is of the utmost importance. The vitamins and supplements you traditionally purchase at big chain stores are usually not very good quality. They are typically full of preservatives, fillers, nonactive ingredients, artificial flavors, partial vitamins, or even worse, knock offs. These types of nutritional products, I would say, do more harm than good. 


Do I Really Need Supplements?

This is a very common question I get asked by patients. In a perfect world, I would say you do not. However, the way we live now with increased stress, work demands, decreased sleep, and increased rates of disease places much greater demands on our bodies, and the foods we consume do not have the nutrients they once did. Depending on the specific nutrient, our crops can contain between 20 – 70% less minerals than they did 70 years ago. Now imagine our fruits and vegetables have fewer minerals and then we further process them along with all the lab engineered Frankenfoods we eat. Many of the micronutrients and other beneficial compounds get removed during the processing of food in an already mineral-depleted source.
