Dean Ornish Supplements
I’m trying to figure out the supplements that Dean Ornish is giving to his AD test participants.
As I have more information, I will post it here.
Here is the information from his online study notes.
He is now doing an Alzheimers reversal study…..here are some of the details….note the extra supplements.
Diet: A low fat (10-15%) whole foods vegan diet, high in complex carbs and low in refined carbs (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, soy, seeds & nuts). Calories unrestricted. Multivitamin, fish oil, curcumin, vitamin C, B12, CoQ10, lion’s mane, probiotic, and magnesium.”
On his website, he adds this advice… https://www.ornish.com/proven-program/nutrition/
“We recommend a low dose multivitamin and mineral supplement with B-12 (without iron, if not of childbearing age), fish oil and, possibly upon the advice of a physician, calcium supplements.”
He also seems to like Omega 3’s for most people.
Nordic Naturals is what he recommends.
“For heart health, the Dr. Dean Ornish Program for Reversing Heart Disease recommends 2-4 grams of Omega-3 a day with an approximate ratio 600 mg EPA and 400 mg DHA per 1000 mg. It’s important to read the labels since fish oil supplements contain fish, and some can be relatively high in cholesterol.
Curcumin article – he recommends – Standardized powder (curcumin): 400 – 600mg, 3 times per day
Lions Mane is a mushroom supplement that Dr. Ornish recommends.
This is also part of a supplement that Matt Fraser used when he was part of Cross Fit.
I’ve added this to my list. I’m taking 1 gram/day – no noticeable effects after 2 weeks.
Video where he says what supplements he takes, but I’m pretty sure he leaves a few off.
Multi-vitamin, CoQ10. Magnesium, Algae Omega 3, Quercetin, True Niagen – which is a NAD Plus supplement, Vit C, Vit D,
