We purchase supplements from 2 very trusted physician only sites so we know exactly what is in our vitamins and supplements. The CDC performed a study on the supplements and vitamins on the shelves of GNC, Walgreen’s, Wal-Mart and Target (the largest vitamin suppliers in the US) and found that >90% of them were fillers and not actual bio-available nutrients. They were also full of allergens.
We utilize professional line supplements which have pharmaceutical-grade ingredients. These supplement brands go above-and-beyond the call of duty to adhere to best manufacturing practices (GMP certified) required by the FDA to be able to be trusted by doctors around the world.
Every day our supplements are tested by hundreds of our patients. Our providers get continuous feedback about what works for symptoms and what supplements move patient’s lab results toward better health. We utilize supplements often at therapeutic doses to treat disease and we monitor patients to ensure we get the results you want.
Our supplements are also produced on specialized manufacturing equipment and will not share the same manufacturing facility as products containing allergens. Store brands are often unable to offer this extra degree of purity, and you will see disclaimers on the label similar to ‘This product was manufactured in a facility that also produces…’ which usually means its not pharmaceutical grade quality.
