This week's quiz was a little different, the answer is all of the above! So everyone is correct! On the 2/27/12: 5 DietMyths episode, Dr. Oz tackled the issue of exhaustion by sharing the products he recommended, and uses himself, to support energy production.
Bee Pollen contains vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and proteins. Dr. Oz says it has everything in it you need to operate at full speed. Dr. Oz recommends taking 2,000mg of bee pollen daily.
Brewer's yeast is often added to bread and the yeast smells like bread. Brewer's yeast contains B Vitamins to support the metabolic machinery in the cells as well as chromium. Dr. Oz recommended 4,000mg of brewer's yeast but beware, he says, it can give you gas.
Some teas have no caffeine and can give you a kick without any caffeine. Nettle tea has a bitter flavor but you can add a little honey which is another energy booster. Dr. Oz recommends drinking 1 cup of nettle tea in the morning instead of coffee.
Dr. Oz recommends taking 1,000mg of L-lysine before each meal to support circulation which can play a role in energy production.
Each week a new quiz is posted on Watching Dr Oz to test your knowledge of the information shared
on The Dr. Oz Show the previous week. Answers are provided each Saturday. Cast your vote every week and check back every Saturday to see how you did!
