What are they?
Supplements are products that you give to your body on top of diet to help boost stores or replenish deficiencies of vital nutrients. They are usually combinations of vitamins and nutrients that your body needs for its health and vitality.
Why take them?
Our North American Lifestyle can be hard on our bodies. Stress burns up vitamins and minerals extremely fast. Nutrient deficient diets and depleted farming soils are commonplace. We all need a boost at times to help our bodies get balanced.
Your health is dependent on the sum of all your parts. The biochemical advantage that supplements give you may be all that you need or it may just be a piece of the puzzle. We must address each aspect of you to find true health.
How do I know what I should take?
The only way to truly know your vitamin and mineral status is to run a test. We can do this test for you or we can base supplement intake off of symptoms. We do not recommend the blanket statement that everyone should take one thing, such as a multivitamin. The reason is that some people’s body may need the nutrients but they may not be able to absorb the nutrients. It would therefore be better to work on taking supplements that improve digestion and absorbtion. This is an example of why it is important to get assessed by a licensed Naturopathic Doctor.
Where do I get supplements I can trust?
Our dispensary is created to help our clients better achieve their health goals. We carry only the highest quality products so that you can be assured that you are getting the best. The only way to know that you are getting the ingredients you are told you are getting out of a product is to do an independent lab assay on the product in question. We have gone out of our way to deal with companies that do this practice.
