Vitamin Supplementation


Supplements Do Make a Difference.

Do you need to take vitamins and minerals? Can they really make a difference in my illness and/or longevity? Should you follow the The Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Science who developed the recommended daily allowance (RDA). There are so many questions surrounding the use of supplements and if they can really affect or reverse disease progression. The answer is everyone is different in their vitamin and supplement requirements. There are many factors that affect which supplements you need to take – everything from age, sex, medical history, genetics, what you eat, etc…In the Journal of the American Medical Association, they stated “Suboptimal vitamin states are associated with many chronic disease including cardiovascular disease, cancer and osteoporosis.” They suggested that “most people do not consume an optimal amount of vitamins and nutrients by diet alone… it appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements.” (Fletcher, et al.)

We can help you determine the vitamin and mineral supplementation that you need.
We recommend Pharmaceutical Grade Supplements. Pharmaceutical grade means they are at the highest level of regulatory requirements ( medical grade, cosmetic grade and feed or agricultural grade are at a different standard). Highest grade means they have a high purity, dissolution, absorption and are 99% pure with no binders, fillers, dyes or unknown substances.
Did you know that 75% of you vitality, health and life expectancy is based on your environment lifestyle and nutrition. Unfortunately, its just not enough to consume a healthy diet. Did you know that once you pick fruits and vegetables from the garden, their nutritional value falls but then continues to fall while under cold storage. Grapes can lose 30 % of their vitamin B by the time they are in the grocery stores. Storing asparagus for one week can cause them to lose 90% of their vitamin C (P Smith).
