I believe in food first, but sometimes I recommend supplements to help bring my clients back into balance. Supplements can be helpful, confusing, expensive, and sometimes dangerous.
Supplements are not regulated by the FDA for quality. To make sure you are getting high-quality supplements. Look for a third party quality certification like GMP or NSF. Read the bottle carefully and make sure that you choose supplements free of artificial colors and flavors, sugars, fillers, preservatives, or ingredients that cause a reaction for you.
Know who you are buying from. When you buy supplements from third parties you don’t know how the supplements have been stored or for how long. If you have a problem with it, the manufacturer won’t accept the return.
Before starting any new supplements it is important to understand potential interactions with medications and medical conditions. Talk with your health care provider and ask questions.
I do a comprehensive review of each new client’s supplements. When I do recommend supplements, I recommend professional grade supplements because I am confident that my clients get therapeutic doses of top-notch easily absorbable ingredients and that what the bottle says is in the bottle is actually in the bottle.
