Dr. Aieta's Daily 5 Supplements
On a daily basis in my practice I get asked the question, "Dr. Aieta, what supplements do you personally take every day to maintain overall good health?"
My answer is that I change my supplement plan quite often based upon what symptoms I may be experiencing, the time of year, and my changing nutritional needs.
Why We Need Vitamin Supplements
Dietary supplements can help fill in nutritional gaps and can protect your body against the occasional diet lapse. The majority of our food is grown in soil that is depleted of nutrients, making it very difficult to get all the vitamins and minerals required daily from our food alone. Not to mention, most of the fruits and vegetables that we are consuming are not locally grown so they are often ripened on the back of a truck or on the store shelf opposed to on the vine.
Types of Vitamins
Vitamins and minerals perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help strengthen bones, heal wounds, and support your immune system. They also convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage.
There are two types of vitamins for the body: water-soluble and fat-soluble. Water-soluble vitamins travel freely through the body, and excess amounts are usually excreted by the kidneys. The body needs water-soluble vitamins in frequent, small doses. Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the body's cells and are not excreted as easily as water-soluble vitamins. They do not need to be consumed as often as water-soluble vitamins, although adequate amounts are needed.
There are five supplements that I have been taking for years that I consider to be very crucial that I take continuously.

Here is a testimonial from an actual patient in my practice:
Dear Dr. Aieta,
My family and I cannot say enough positive things about the way you have treated my health problems.
After my heart by-pass surgery in 1997, I spent five years losing my breath and coughing whenever I tried to speak more than three sentences. My cardiologist and my internist sent me to a pulmonary doctor who prescribed Claritin. I took this drug along with my blood pressure pills, cholesterol lowering medication, and aspirin. Nothing stopped the coughing and the sleepless nights for which my internist prescribed sleeping pills.
Then I met you at a party and while talking, you asked me what prescriptions I was taking. Having just gone to another pulmonary doctor that week, I still had the list of medications in my wallet. You told me one of the medications had a side effect of chronic cough. You also found that the Lipitor was causing my muscle pain and weakness.
To make a very long story short, after two months in your care, with a change of diet, switching medications and your vitamin and nutrient supplements, my blood pressure is the best it has been in twenty years, I am sleeping better without the aid of pills, I have not coughed in over a year and I have much more energy overall. I am also taking a much lower dose of my cholesterol medication because my cholesterol came down so much and the CoQ10 supplement took away my muscle pain and weakness.
My follow-up blood work also showed that I reduced the amount of inflammation in my arteries by half reducing my risk for another cardiac problem. I would not have believed that all this could happen with alternative medicine, but I am now a true believer.
