TOP 6 SUPPLEMENTS FOR CONCUSSIONS

October 10, 2019 0 By Ewald Bahringer


– Hey everybody, this is Dr. Ryan Hewitt from In8 Wellness Center. This is video number two on
the topic of concussions. We talked about what to do if
you experience a concussion. Video two here is gonna be
talking about what to take. Everyone’s interested
in what they can do to make sure that they are
improving their recovery, obviously, from things like concussions. Improve their healing ability, et cetera. I’m gonna be very specific
with my six top supplements that I’ve had excellent results with. Supplement number one,
it’s called glutathione. Glutathione is a master
antioxidant of the brain. It assists with things like
repair to the nervous system. There is a combination of
things in this supplement that I really like from Apex. It’s called Glutathione Recycler. There’s also one via Metagenics I really like, too, called GlutaClear. This one here it has N-acetylcysteine, as well as some other things
like cordyceps and mushrooms, which aid tremendously
in the up regulation and production of glutathione, your body’s master antioxidant. That’s supplement number one. Supplement number two is Vitamin D. Good old sunshine is the best way to produce Vitamin D in your body. However, in places like New England here, especially in the fall, we are not having a lot
of sunshine exposure. Vitamin D supplementation, even doing some extra during these times of healing is important. Vitamin D is also a really
critical neuro-protectant. Also an immune-supportive agent and it’s anti-inflammatory. Doing 5,000 IU, very safe
dose from Metagenics. Again, my preferred supplement brand. Number three, this has
recently been added for me to my supplement regime for wellness but also for anyone who is looking for any boost to their brainpower. If you’re healing from concussions, this is really great brain food, CBD oil. I prefer the full-spectrum, which has a wide array of cannabinoids. I recently did a workshop you
can find on our Facebook page. We did a Facebook Live where I talked all about the benefits
of CBD and cannabinoids. Doing a full-spectrum CBD
oil really aids, again, in things like anti-oxidant. The U.S. government has taken out a patent on CBD’s anti-oxidant abilities, but there’s also a lot of other neuro-protective abilities for CBD and it’s also been shown to be
a very powerful anti-oxidant. That’s number three. Number four, methilated B12. This is a supplement that I take daily because I have something
called a MTHFR variant. This is a genetic test
that I do in my office. It let’s us know if our
absorbability of B vitamins ’cause I take in a lotta
B vitamins with my diet but I don’t absorb a lot because my body has problems doing something called methylation. I take a pre-methylated B
vitamin to improve my absorption. When you have concussions,
your gut gets leaky, your absorption abilities are not as good, so taking a pre-methylated
B vitamin is critical. B Vitamins are very important for being neuro-regenerative,
neuro-protectant. Metagenics has a really
excellent full-spectrum methylated B vitamin. Number five is curcumin. I love this Inflavinoid Intensive Care, another Metagenics product. I take this when I’m healing from injury, when I’m trying to reduce inflammation. This has a bunch of proprietary
mixes of curcuminoids. It has other things like boswellia and some other anti-inflammatory herbs. Really nice supplement that you can add to reduce inflammation. And of course some of my daily protocol for my wellness is fish oil. Taking an EPADHA Omega-3 fish oil from a reputable brand like Metagenics, making sure that you’re
getting good quality fish oil, this is also brain food. Reduces inflammation,
improves neurological repair, as well as cell signaling. This stiff you wanna take high doses if you have any sort of
traumatic brain injury, concussion, et cetera. There you go, guys. With this video I’m
