Recommended Vitamins, Minerals. and Supplements to Address Stress, Pain, Energy, and More

Health Scottsdale is a highly specialized, optimization clinic that focus on whole body health and wellbeing. The goal of the practice is to help as many people as possible achieve their full health potential, regardless from where they started from.

We implement this philosophy by adding supplements for everyday needs. The following are some of the main supplements that we recommend.  As we work with you, we will assess your health and select the proper  supplements to achieve maximumoptimization, with a supplements program  specifically designed for you. 

Designs for Health

Designs for Health is a leading health practitioner, research based supplement company out of Suffield, Connecticut. Their core science team are responsible determining which supplements work and then creating a health protocol to help combine the supplements for individuals to reach their full potential.  Their team is  composed of physicians, naturopaths, registered dieticians, and a range of top scholars.

This company connects with other healthcare professionals to help get their science and vetted products out to patients and customers in need.  A benefit of Designs for Health is they have their customers/patients partner with a local provider in their local area to ensure that they are receiving the proper supplements for their specific health concern, condition, etc. This relationship provides an optimal approach for the patient, as their supplement regimen is managed by a medical professional who is aware of all aspects of the patient’s health blueprint.

A multi vitamin is an excellent way to get many of the essential vitamins and minerals during each and every day. The Designs for Health multi vitamin is a popular option within our practice. In addition, we can create a customized daily vitamin plan specifically for you. 

Supplements for Sleep

Insomnitol is used to help the patient ease into and stay asleep through the night. This blend is made of two main ingredients that are melatonin and 5-HTP. Melatonin is a natural occurring hormone in our bodies that is released as the sun/light goes down and increases as we go through the stages of sleep. 5-HTP is a serotonin precursor, meaning that it helps to increase serotonin levels in the brain. Low serotonin levels can contribute to feelings of anxiety, impending doom, and racing thought. When we correct this level, the serotonin that we are getting helps to ease our mind and allows us to go to sleep.

Supplements for Energy

The need for energy is universal, and in our daily lives, energy is at a premium.  that I do. Energy comes from a little powerhouse in each cell called the mitochondria. The mitochondria, just like any component in our bodies, may need help from time to time to function appropriately and continue to produce the energy the body needs. Here are some of the following supplements that we recommend at Health Scottsdale to get your mitochondria pumping and your energy flowing:

  1. Mitochondrial NRG: By feeding the ingredients that support the health of the mitochondria, this in turn creates an environment that supports energy production, resulting in natural energy that can be felt!
  2. Workout Complex: This is a complete pre-workout that not only helps to provide energy, but also contain ingredients that help with building muscle strength and recovery.
  3. Acetyl L-Carnitine: Helps to utilize long-chin fatty acids into sustained energy

Supplements for Stress Relief/Relaxation

Stress relief and relaxation seems to becoming more of a taboo world that we live in. More and more people struggle with getting away from work, home life, or even just their phone. All of these stressors need to have a relaxer in order to help maintain homeostasis. Listed are various supplements that we continuously recommend for patients that have issues with “winding down.”

  1. TriGandha- Combination supplement of three different forms of ashwagandha. Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic meaning that it is a natural occurring substance that is derived from plants or fungus to help the body adapt to stress. Ultimately, it makes the stress that we go through on a daily basis seem less stressful overall. (Designs for Health)
  2. StressArrest- Supplement that contains GABA (gamma-Aminobutyric acid). Gaba is responsible for decreases the CNS and stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, also know as the “rest and digest” system of the body. By stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, this allows the body to be in a more relaxed state. Since the molecules for GABA in this supplement are larger in molecular weight, the GABA does not cross the blood/brain barrier, therefore there is no mental side effects that come when the brain is suppressed. (Designs for Health)
  3. Mood-Stasis: This supplement contains Sceletium, which has been used in Africa to help calm the nerves when going out to hunt. This supplement improves mental outlook and calms the mind. This supplement is best used for an anxiety provoking activities one may indulge in, including social encounters, meeting new people, and for some just getting through a normal day. (Designs for Health)
  4. TriMag Supreme Night: Magnesium is well known to help with relaxing the muscles of the body. This type of Magnesium not only helps to relax the muscles, but also crosses the blood/brain barrier, helping to induce a calming night sleep. (Designs for Health)

Supplements for Skin, Hair, Nails

Collagen plus MCT oil (from Designs for Health) is a unique blend of collagen building peptides mixed with MCT (Medium-Chain Triglycerides) that help with inflammation, gut health, appetite satiety, and increased energy production. Collagen focuses on building up connective tissues that helps to improve muscle recovery, hair strength and thickness, prevents brittle nails, and strengthens the skin decreasing the risk of wrinkles/fine lines and making one appear younger.

Supplements for Allergies

Seasonal allergies can wreak havoc on ones body and here at Health Scottsdale we focus on providing a more extensive allergy protocol that can be implemented from home. Are allergy protocol includes the following supplements:

  1. HistaEze: Supports normal histamine metabolism, meaning that when taken the excessive amounts of histamine that circulate from a recent or ongoing allergen exposure, are decreased, aiding in decreasing the overall allergic response that occurs. In summary, this supplement helps to reduce signs and symptoms of an allergic response. (Designs for Health)
  2. ProbioMed 50: Powerful probiotics that can help support the immune system and gut flora. This supplement works in conjunction with aiding in proper regulation of histamine. (Designs for Health)

  4. D-Evail Supreme: This supplement contains vitamin D that aids in proper immune functioning. (Design for Health)

Supplements for Atherosclerosis Prevention

Atherosclerosis is the thickening and/or hardening of the arteries. Plaque in the form of cholesterol, fibrin, or calcium builds up and leads to an increase risk for heart attack, stroke, and can increase the blood pressure as well that can lead to further damage and/or aneurysm. It is found that we can reduce and prevent the buildup of this plaque in many ways and one way we do this at Health Scottsdale is by using vitamin D with vitamin K2. The combination actually improves calcium absorption so that the calcium is not building up in the lining of the arteries. The combination also supports arterial elasticity and strength, which helps to reduce the incidence of aneurysms as well as reduces the stiffness in the arteries that can lead to blood pressure issues.

D-Evail™ Supreme “…provides a clinically relevant serving of 5,000 IU (125 mcg) of vitamin D in a highly absorbable form alongside vitamin K1 and K2 (as MK-4), and geranylgeraniol (GG) to support bone, immune, and cardiovascular health.”

Arterosil® HP is a proprietary blend of a rare seaweed and fruit and vegetable extracts to help support arterial and endothelial health.

Vascanox HP®


BergaVin™ features the trademarked ingredients Bergavit® 40 bergamot and Vinia® red grape powder with research demonstrating their potential to support cardiovascular health.* The polyphenols and flavonoids in bergamot and red grapes support healthy cholesterol metabolism.* These ingredients also support antioxidant status and promote a healthy inflammatory response to help promote coronary health.

OmegAvail™ Hi-Po is our highest concentration of omega-3 product, providing 1,600 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid/docosahexaenoic acid (EPA/DHA) per 2-softgel serving in a balanced 1-to-1 ratio. This product is optimal for supporting the foundational needs of EPA and DHA for long-term supplementation.

The dose of vitamin D is dependent upon your current vitamin D status as well as looking at the history of your vitamin D deficiency. The Vitamin D synergy is for those that have little to no issues with vitamin D regulation based on labs.

Supplements for Adrenal Health

The adrenal gland is an important gland that sits above the kidneys. The adrenal gland is responsible for releasing our catecholamines (dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine), releasing cortisol (stress hormone), aldosterone production and release (help with BP levels), and DHEA which is one of the  hormones responsible for production of testosterone and estrogen.

The adrenal gland is part of the HPA-axis (hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis) and this axis is responsible for regulation of the various hormones mentioned above as well as other hormones that are not involved in the adrenal gland. There are many causes to HPA axis dysfunction including chronic stress, physical/emotional trauma, various autoimmune disorders, genetic predisposition, sleep deprivation, nutritional deficiencies, alcohol/drug abuse, and even environmental toxins. The usual path is the prolonged stress or other issues mentioned previously cause a hyper response in the adrenal gland to try to maintain homeostasis. The adrenal gland starts to overproduce the hormones mentioned above, which can wreak havoc on the body and eventually lead to burnout of the adrenal gland.

This overproduction and then burnout is evident in everyday life including issues with blood pressure, difficulty sleeping or sleeping all the time, dysregulation if blood sugars, also the inability to manage “everyday” stress. Because the adrenal glands can be hyper or hypo in their production nature, it is important to first identify which state the person is in and then figure out which supplements and lifestyle modifications are needed to return balance to the adrenal gland and the body as a whole.

At Health Scottsdale we can run labs and use the DUTCH test as well in order to figure out if you have HPA axis dysfunction and if so, which side of the spectrum you may be. Once identified, the supplements that are recommended are as follows:

Hyper HPA-axis dysregulation:

  1. CatecholaCalm: This supplement contains adaptogenic herbs that help to promote calmness and relaxation. These adaptogens help with regulating the response to stress, which in turn helps to regulate BP and catecholamines. (Designs for Health)
  2. Magnesium Glycinate: Magnesium is a critical mineral that needs to be properly maintained in order to promote muscle relaxation and blood sugar metabolism. (Designs for Health)
  3. NeuroCalm: contains inositol to help regulate blood sugars in the body; 5-HTP to help with serotonin production leading to anxiety and racing thought cessation/reduction, and other ingredients that promote a more calming environment. (Designs for Health)

With Hyper HPA axis dysregulation, the goal is to help “calm” down the body to promote an environment that helps to reduce stress.


Hypo HPA-axis dysregulation:

  1. Adrenotone: This supplement contains some of the similar adaptogens in it to promote a healthy adrenal gland, but the main ingredient that is of focus is licorice root. Licorice root is known to help increase cortisol levels in the body to help overcome stress. This medication is only taken when the 24 hour cortisol levels are low and the adrenal glands need help to produce more cortisol to help fight against mental/physical burnout/exhaustion. (Designs for Health)
  2. Liposomal B Supreme: This supplement contains full spectrum of B vitamins that support a healthy metabolism and stress response (Designs for Health)
  3. Liposomal Vitamin C: Not only for immune support but also supports neurotransmitter and hormone synthesis. (Designs for Health)

Supplements for Neuropathy

Neuropathy is a very common problem that is becoming more prevalent as our population is aging. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there is an estimated 30 million people that are diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy in America. This issue can be very debilitating leading to amputations, sleep disruptions, mental health strain, and overall decreased quality of life. Uncontrolled diabetes is a major chronic disease that contributes to this statistic, but there are other causes of neuropathy, even those that we do not have a lineage or cause to put our fingers on. For blood sugar control and to help decrease fasting insulin levels, supplements include berberine and inositol. Supplements that help to support nerves include the following:

  1. NeuroRenew: This supplement contains lipoic acid, methylcobalamin, benfotiamine, and acetyl L-carnitine. The goal of this supplement is to improve communication between the nerves and nervous system, while also promoting a healthy nerve environment to help prevent worsening neuropathy symptoms. (Designs for Health)
  2. PS 150: This supplement contains phosphatidylserine which supports communication and membrane health around the neurons of the nervous system. This leads to improved and efficient firing of the neurons. (Designs for Health)
  3. GLA 240: This supplement contains gamma linoleic acid, which is an acid that helps to decrease prolonged/chronic inflammation in the body. When we help decrease chronic inflammation in patients with neuropathy, this helps lead to a reduction in the signs and symptoms of neuropathy. (Designs for Health)
  4. Metabolic Synergy: This medication contains many important vitamins and minerals that help to contribute to healthy glucose metabolism. In turn, this supplement can not only help regulate blood sugar (glucose) but also to help make the pancreas run more efficiently. (Designs for Health)

Supplements for Fiber Intake

Fiber plays an important role in managing blood sugar and proper stool formation and elimination. Many of the products that are found in the store have harsh chemicals that can cause bloating or indigestion to occur. The product that we like to recommend at Health Scottsdale is Designs for Health PaleoFiber. This fiber product is carb friendly and unflavored so that you can easily mix it in one of your favorite drinks. Whether you are struggling with regular bowel movements, hard stool, or a medication is inducing constipation, this fiber can help you naturally with all your bowel needs.

Supplements for Estrogen Metabolism

At Health Scottsdale we first start with encouraging all women to go through a very informative DUTCH test. This valuable test not only shows our hormone levels without a blood draw, but shows estrogen metabolism. By improving and shifting how estrogen gets broken down in the body, we can reduce the risk of estrogen based cancers. The three pathways that estrogen gets broken down into are 2OH, 4OH, and 16OH pathways. The goal is to have a balance of how estrogen is metabolized in the body. Men can also have issues with this pathway, especially as low testosterone and being overweight kicks in, and therefore they are also encouraged to see where their estrogen metabolism lies.

  1. DIM (Diindolylmethane) is the supplement of choice for treatment. (from Designs for Health)

Supplements for Recovery/Strength/Muscle production

BPC-157 is not only used as a leaky gut treatment, but can help to increase muscle growth and aides in repairing and healing of all different kinds of tissues, and even wounds, in the body. Pair this with TB-4 and you have a recipe for superior muscle growth, improved strength, and ultimate recovery.  Click here to shop online for BPC-157 and TB-4

  1. BPC-157 and TB-4 from Strive Pharmacy

If you are in the cutting phase of muscle building or want to put on lean muscle, try essential amino acids. Essential amino acids are the amino acids that the body does not naturally produce. These differ from BCAAs in that BCAAs (branch chain amino acids) are naturally produced in the body and they do not need to be taken in on a daily basis. The essential amino acids that are found in Designs for Health Amino Acid Supreme provide the proper amounts for daily consumption. When we take in protein through food, our bodies have to break the protein down to amino acids.

These amino acids are what the muscles rely on to help recover and build back stronger muscles. When we take in food, only a percentage of the food is broken down to be used as amino acids, the rest of the protein that is not used is stored as fat or converted to glucose. This excessive amounts of fat and carbohydrates add to your overall body weight, leading to the major reason you see body builders cut.

The idea would be to take in these essential amino acids for protein building synthesis and since they carry little to no calories, there would not be an excessive weight gain from this supplement. We at Health Scottsdale like to use them on patients that are on Semaglutide and Tirzepatide for weight loss. These medications work wonders for losing weight, but our bodies can lose muscle when on these medications. Adding the essential amino acids to the plan of care can reduce or even prevent muscle wasting when on these medications or just when trying to cut back on food to lose weight.

Supplements for Gut Health

Pendulum is a company that offers the only researched back bacterial strain called Akkermansia Muciniphila. This strain is responsible for digesting mucin, which is a thin protective layer in the gut that is responsible for making sure pathogens, debris, and allergens that get into the GI tract get excreted. The mucin needs to be replenished as it works hard, and this is where Akkermansia comes in. Here are the recommended supplements to help treat the gut. 

1.Akkermansia Muciniphila from Pendulum: Click here to shop.

2.BPC-157 helps with healing the tight junctions that are leaking in the gut and strengthen the gut barrier. This medication significantly helps with reducing and eliminating heartburn as well as treating damaged gut mucosa. Because it help to improve gut health, it can help to increase both serotonin and dopamine, leading to a more productive, fulfilling life and outlook.

3. KPV acts as a superhero in our cells.  It enters only the cells possessing inflammatory action and interacts directly with the inflammatory signaling molecules. This process has the potential to help strengthen the immune system and help to treat dermatitis, bowel diseases, and arthritis.

Supplements for MTHFR Gene Mutation

This common gene mutation, which stands for methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase, gives the instructions for making an enzyme called the MTHFR. The enzyme MTHFR processes folate which is a very important for various bodily functions to occur including:

  • DNA synthesis and repair
  • Breaking down of homocysteine levels in the body
  • Neurotransmitter production

If the folate cannot break down and homocysteine levels increase, this can lead to various issues in the body including an increased risk in stroke, heart attack, blood clots, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, anxiety, Parkinson’s disease, and issues with neural tube defects towards the developing fetus. In order to properly break down the Folate in our bodies when having this gene mutation, all we need to do is to make sure that folate is methylated by taking methylated folate. B12 also play pivotal roles in breaking down homocysteine, therefore if we find that you have this gene mutation, we can add the B-supreme supplement from Designs for Health that contains both of these B vitamins in their methylated forms!

Supplements for COMT Variations

COMT effects how your brain regulates dopamine. When there is a mutation that occurs to this pathway, two things can happen. The first is that the dopamine is processed and “thrown out” to fast leading to symptoms of low dopamine. The other variation that can occur is that dopamine is not broken down fast enough, leading to higher than normal levels of dopamine circulating in the brain. The goal of therapy is to help support healthy dopamine levels and facilitate proper breakdown. Through genetic testing, we at Health Scottsdale are able to find out which variation you have and support you along the way. To help naturally increase dopamine you can try one of the following:

  1. BPC-157 this helps to increase dopamine levels to help support proper concentration and alleviate symptoms of depression. (Strive Pharmacy)
  2. L-Tyrosine which is a precursor to dopamine (Designs for Health)
  3. Dopaboost (from designs for health) contains Mucuna Pruriens which is a supplement that naturally increases dopamine levels in the body. (Designs for Health)

This is what gets me excited about health and wellness with these supplements. There are so many different ways to help someone and each individual is different than the next individual. Come check out Health Scottsdale for all of your supplementation needs!
