Our Recommended Supplements

A note from the Drs. Eades...
     Over the years of our clinical practice, we helped many thousands of patients lose weight and solve weight-related health issues with a low carb diet as the cornerstone of our therapy. We supplemented our patients' food diets with a group of key nutrients that benefited their progress and ensured good health as they went through the process and we wrote about them in our book, Protein Power. In 1997, when the book hit the New York Times bestseller list, we began to receive letters from readers all over the country asking us if they could purchase the same supplements we prescribed to our patients and we began to ship them out.

     Over time, buying the quantities required to warehouse the supplements in our own inventory became a costly, inefficient, and unsustainable proposition and we were forced to abandon it. But now, the same supplements are available readily through Amazon, so that we can simply point our readers to the right ones and voilá.

     This collection of supplements are the ones we take ourselves or have recommended with confidence to our patients and family over the years. They are quality products from reputable companies that we trust. We believe them to be excellent choices for the overweight low-carb dieter trying to regain metabolic control, lose weight, and reclaim fitness.  Here's what we recommend and why.

BioTech Vitamin D3-K2

120 Capsules


The body makes vitamin D when unblocked sunlight strikes the skin. This is the best and most natural source for vitamin D. But in the winter months sunlight is weak and vitamin D levels fall. When we block the sun with even mild sunblockers, the skin cannot make vitamin D.  It's role is to support cardiovascular and  immune health and to promote calcium absorption and transport to bones. Formulated with vitamin K2 as menaquinone-7, which helps ensure the calcium is directed to bones and teeth and not elsewhere in the body. (Those on blood thinning medications should check with your doctor before taking vitamin K2)*
