Anatomy 101: Dissecting the Dr. Oz Show - Monday February 14, 2012
Let’s summarize today’s show with just three products recommended.
1. Yerba Matte Tea
2. Cassia Cinnamon
3. Maca root powder
None of these products have had quality human studies supporting their use for any of his prescribed recommendations.
He also recommended Coenzyme Q10 in gel form to get higher blood levels. It works for hypertension, but if your hypertension is so high you need high levels of COQ10, you should be under the care of a doctor.
The rest of the show about jump-starting your day, was also mostly nonsense and doesn't bear repeating.

In a recent survey, 9 out of 10 doctors did not recommend their patients taking advice from Dr. Oz without pre-conditions such as his revealing the source of his information and his financial connection to the product.
