What Supplements Does a Longevity Expert Take Each Day?

Meet Dr. Michael Greger

Dr. Michael Greger is a physician, nutritionist, bestselling author, and public speaker who specializes in aging and longevity. He’s written four books about health and nutrition that were instant New York Times Best Sellers, including How Not to Age and How Not to Die. 

So, what supplements does a longevity expert take each day? 

The 4 Supplements He Takes Each Day

Dr. Greger recently gave an interview with Business Insider titled “4 Things a Longevity Doctor Does Daily to Live Longer” where he shared what supplements he takes each day as part of his wellness regimen. 

Let’s take a closer look at Dr. Greger’s choices and why he uses them to help support healthy aging.

Vitamin D 

Dr. Greger reports that Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus, which helps strengthen your bones and teeth.1 

Vitamin D can be found in foods like fatty fish, egg yolks, and fortified dairy products, but sunlight is where we get most of our Vitamin D. 

A recent study found that a large portion of Americans aren’t getting enough Vitamin D.2 

Dr. Greger takes Vitamin D each day to help strengthen bones and teeth. 

Vitamin B12

The second daily supplement Dr. Greger takes is Vitamin B12. Dr. Greger takes it to support his body’s production of DNA and red blood cells.3 Vitamin B12 can be found in foods like lean meats, poultry, eggs, beans, peas, lentils, nuts and seeds.

Algae-Based DHA

DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) is an Omega-3 fatty acid that helps our brain health and cognitive performance.4 Dr. Greger takes an algae-based DHA because of his plant-based diet, but Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fatty fish, as well as walnuts, flaxseeds, and chia seeds.

To support brain and cognitive health, Dr. Greger takes DHA every day. 

Homemade Spice Blend 

The final supplement Dr. Greger takes each day is a homemade blend of spices. Dr. Greger wraps ground turmeric, black cumin, ground ginger, and gooseberry powder in an edible film like a wonton that he takes as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory as well as for immune support.
