What You Should Know
Energy Essentials is a supplement created by Dr. Julian Whitaker. Dr. Whitaker is also the owner of the Wellness Institute in Newport Beach, California. Whitaker is a medical doctor that is certified in anti-aging medicine. According to the official website for all of Dr. Whitaker’s products, Energy Essentials provides what the body needs to increase natural energy and improve overall health.
List of Ingredients
Potassium and Magnesium.
Potassium and magnesium work to regenerate ATP in the body. ATP, or Adenosine Triphosphate aids in energy transfer from the body to cells where it can be used to heal, rejuvenate and energize. While there is scientific evidence supporting the function of Energy Essentials ingredients in the body, very few people are lacking in natural sources of potassium and magnesium in the body.
Energy Essentials is sold as part of a whole body health system of supplements. Dr. Whitakers Forward Plus Daily Regime includes a multi-vitamin, fish oil and phytonutrients for overall body health. These are packaged with the Energy Essentials as a complete system. The official website does not stop up selling with the Forward Plus with Energy Essentials. Consumers are given the opportunity to also purchase supplements for glucose support, digestive support and prostate health to name a few. In fact, there is very little information supporting the effects of potassium and magnesium in the body when compared to the constant barrage of information supporting the purchase of additional supplements to complete the Dr. Whitaker program.
Energy Essentials is inexpensive at $8.99 per bottle. If the consumer chooses to order the product on a regular auto-ship program, the price is lowered to $8.09 per bottle. Two Energy Essentials supplies 114 mg of potassium and 40 mg of magnesium. This equals only 3% and 10% of the daily suggested value for each nutrient respectively. Consumers could choose to eat one large banana every day in place of the Energy Essentials supplement and get more potassium and magnesium than this supplement provides.
- Energy Essentials is priced lower than many other supplements online.
- The price of one banana is far lower than Energy Essentials.
- One large banana provides more potassium and magnesium than a daily dose of Energy Essentials.
- There is no link between Energy Essentials and weight loss or improved health.
- No supporting research is listed on the official website.
- Dr. Whitaker seems more interested in up selling additional supplements than supporting the use of Energy Essentials.
Rarely do we advise a consumer to stay away from a product, but this could be the case with the Energy Essentials. Potassium and magnesium are essential for energy transfer into cells, but most people get enough of these essential nutrients through diet alone. If a person is lacking in potassium and magnesium, one large banana will solve the problem better than Energy Essentials.
