Supplement Refresh: “Tidying Up” Your Supplement Drawer For 2019

January 16, 2019

Every year, we — The Morrison Center Wellness Team — reevaluate our supplement collection in order to have the most advanced and effective products on-hand for ourselves and our patients. In the spirit of the recent phenomenon “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo,” we want to help you declutter your supplement drawer  — and stock up on those that we believe will “spark joy” in your body and mind!


- SUPPLEMENTS WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT FOR 2019 -

Daily Collagen

NO. 1 DAILY COLLAGEN

If you follow us through email or on social media, you’ve probably gathered by now that we’re crazy for collagen — it plays so many beneficial roles in the body (including better skin!) and couldn’t be easier to add to your morning shake.

Recommended dose: 1 scoop daily

Daily Benefit Vegan Protein

NO. 2 DAILY BENEFIT PROTEIN POWDER

There’s a reason (well, several) this product remains our best-seller year after year: it’s a high-quality, tasty protein source that we call a “multi in a shake” — it provides well-rounded nutrition in an easy-to-mix powder, along with nutrients like glycine and L-cysteine to help support Phase II liver detoxification, and green tea catechins and beta-carotene to protect against harmful compounds in the environment.* We love it and we’re stocking up to start the year off right.

Looking for a delicious way to enjoy Daily Benefit Protein and Daily Collagen together? Try our Daily Benefit Green Beauty Smoothie.

Recommended dose: 2 scoops daily

Buffered Vitamin C

NO. 3 BUFFERED VITAMIN C

We all know vitamin C is crucial for healthy immune function, especially during the winter, which is why everyone in our office has a bottle on their desk! Our buffered version contains minerals that help buffer the acidity of vitamin C so you can take more vitamin C per capsule. Yay for efficiency!

In addition, people are often surprised to learn of vitamin C’s role in our body’s ability to deal with stress. The adrenal glands — the glands that produce hormones like cortisol and epinephrine to keep us resilient in the face of daily challenges — are our body’s number one users of vitamin C. We often see low vitamin C levels in people who’ve been under stress for a long time (looking at you New York), even if they’re eating plenty of fruits and veggies. So be proactive and take your vitamin C!

Recommended dose: 2 capsules daily, or 2 capsules every few hours if you’re feeling sick

Bergamot BPF for Healthy Cholesterol Levels

NO. 4 BERGAMOT BPF

You may think of essential oils when you hear bergamot, but believe it or not, this citrus fruit has powerful cholesterol-balancing properties. Bergamot BPF (Bioactive Polyphenolic Fractions) provides a unique blend of herbs and polyphenolic flavonoids (antioxidants) to support healthy cholesterol levels, including helping to lower LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels and increase HDL cholesterol levels. It also provides anti-inflammatory properties to support overall cardiovascular health.* Quite the impressive little fruit!

Recommended dose: 2 capsules daily

SBI Protect Powder for Digestive and Immune Support

NO. 5 SBI PROTECT POWDER

We now know that a strong intestinal lining plays a key role in immune health. In recent research related to autoimmunity and leaky gut, researchers found that proteins called immunoglobulins have a positive effect on gut health: they actually bind immune system triggers like microbes and toxins in the GI tract and help the body to eliminate them. This means those triggers don’t get a chance to set off an immune response!

With this realization, immunoglobulin powders have entered the supplement market to help individuals trying to heal their digestive tracts. We love SBI Protect because it’s the only purified, dairy-free source of immunoglobulin G (IgG) available as a dietary supplement.

Recommended dose: 1 scoop twice daily in 4 ounces of water or in the beverage of your choice — we love adding it to our Daily Benefit Protein shakes!

Ginst 15 Elixir for Energy and Focus

NO. 6 GINST15

As we dive back into a busy new year, we’ll be sure to keep a bottle of GinST15 Elixir close by. It contains a patented high-absorption form of ginseng that promotes balanced energy, mental clarity, and blood sugar balance. We love it because it helps with mental focus.*

Pro tip: Is one of your new year’s resolutions to drink less caffeine? Try GinST15 Elixir in the morning, and another dose if you have an afternoon energy slump.

Recommended dose: 12 drops in water or other liquid, or directly under the tongue.

200 mg of Zen for Calming Stress Relief

NO. 7 200 MG OF ZEN

Let’s be real: we could all use a little more zen in our lives. This product remains a favorite among our staff and our patients. It contains GABA, a calming neurotransmitter, and L-theanine, an amino acid that helps to calm the mind and body — a gentle yet effective combination that helps provide calm focus without lowering energy levels.

Recommended dose: 2 capsules once or twice daily.


If you’re like us, you may be feeling ready to “cleanse” your supplement drawer. We hope these recommendations help you re-stock for a fulfilling, healthy and joyful new year.

The foundation of the Daily Benefit 10-day Detox Program is the anti-inflammatory meal plan, which guides you in choosing health-promoting foods while removing inflammatory foods and chemicals from your diet, including commonly reactive foods that may be causing symptoms. This “elimination diet” focuses on low-allergenic, nutrient-dense, seasonal, organic, and if possible, locally grown foods. Most people can expect to experience noticeably more energy and focus, better digestion and an overall improved sense of wellbeing.
