There are only two supplements that our study participants took and that are part of the Younger You Intensive plan – Phytoganix and Ultraflora Intensive Care. Everyone who follows the Younger You Intensive should take at least these two. Even though we didn’t use it in our study, I also recommend a liver supplement, since many people find it hard to get the daily recommended amount that we had our study participants eat in food form.

Metagenics PhytoGanix®

$71.75

We used this greens powder in our study that is flush with methyl donor and methylation adaptogen nutrients, including powdered versions of various mushrooms, berries, flax seeds, turmeric, and beets. We use greens powders as a high-quality, super-clean, extra bit of plant-based insurance for our patients, too. It covers a lot of bases in one scoop. In our study, participants took one scoop twice per day. 

UltraFlora® Intensive Care

$55.75

This is the probiotic we used in our clinical study. With regard to DNA methylation, there is some evidence that Lactobacillus plantarum 299V manufactures natural folate in the gut. This strain has also been shown to reduce cortisol levels in human saliva—yet another lever it has to support healthy DNA methylation. Lactobacillus plantarum 299V is also generally well tolerated. In our study, participants took 20 billion live CFUs per day (two capsules).
