Supplements are designed to work with a good diet, not in place of..
There are several good products on the market. My first choice would be a greens product, made from a combination of several raw concentrated powders from organic alfalfa, wheat grass, red beet, spirulina, apple fibre, chlorella, atlantic dulse, etc... and the second choice would be made from organic fruit and berry extracts, such as camu, acerola, mangosteen, goji, acai, billberry, grape seed, grapefruit seed, etc.
This would be my first choice greens product:
Per 8.5g serving of greens+ Phosphatide complex
(26% phosphatidyl choline from 97% oil-free lecithin)
In the brain, phosphatidyl choline is changed into actylcholine a compound essential for the transmission of messages from one nerve ending to another. In the intestinal tract, lecithin helps with the absorption of vitamins A and D, and other fat-soluble nutrients. In the bloodstream, lecithin may help prevent cholesterol and other fat from accumulating on the walls of the arteries.
