This is Part 2 in a series covering supplements with holistic nutritionist Melanie Murphy. Do supplements really work or are they just snake oil? Melanie covers all the basics of supplementation Do’s and Don’ts, who needs them, who doesn’t, how to measure their efficacy and how to choose a brand that is safe and effective.


Melanie is a registered dietitian and completed her masters of Nutrition, Healthspan and Longevity at USC. (very cool masters!)

I found Melanie through the Fasting Mimicking Diet newsletter. I saw she studied (as have I) at the prestigious research based University of Southern California with Dr. Valter Longo who created the Fasting Mimicking Diet and one of TIME’s 50 most influential people in healthcare. She popped up in a university newsletter, I investigated further, I loved her website and the holistic approach she takes to nutrition. She specializes in gut health and is based in Los Angeles.
