Vitamins, Nutraceuticals, and Botanicals

Transient

It is important to use high quality, European standardized, physician-grade nutraceuticals.  

 

You may ask why can’t I just go to the grocery or a commercial supplement store? 

The answer is you can, however there are a few things to take into consideration before you do this:

 Quality

  • Where did it come from? Did they use pesticides and other neurotoxic chemicals for control of growth?
  • How was it processed? What type/form of chemicals did they use to extract the product you are ingesting?
  • What is added to it (binders, fillers, etc)?

Toxicity

Just because a product is “natural” does not mean it doesn’t have side effects, interactions, and potential toxicity. Take vitamins for example: You urinate them out right? WRONG, not when it comes to the fat soluble forms (A,D,E,K) these are stored in our adipose cells (fat) and can build up in your system. 

Heavy Metals

This is especially an issue when it comes to fish oils. Where did they get there fish from? What is the process in which they filter and therefore assure you, the consumer, that there isn’t heavy metals (such as mercury, arsenic, etc.) in the supplement. Although fish oils, essential fatty acids, are recommended by many physicians today—if you are ingesting heavy metals you are actually causing more damage than good.
