How much do you know about supplements? Questions like, "which ones", "how many," and "how often" usually top the list. If you find yourself confused, overwhelmed, or even under informed, don't worry--you're not alone There's a lot to consider when it comes to choosing, purchasing, and using the right supplement to add to your diet.

Here are some things to help you make the right choice for you and your family:

Did you know... all supplements are not created equal?

Different bodies have different needs!

Your age, gender, lifestyle and current health each need to be factored into your decisions. Determining what your body needs, how much to take and how often requires careful assessment so that you don't waste time and money.

What's the best value?

The first step in getting the most value for your pocketbook is to determine how much your body gets out of what you are taking. The term "bio-availability" is a key factor to consider. Simply put, it means how easy can your body break down and absorb the nutrients you take so the maximum is "available" for your body to utilize.

Another consideration is to understand that there are four grades of nutrient quality:

  • Veterinarian grade: enough said
  • Nutriceutical grade: discount stores
  • Medical grade: more bio available
  • Pharmacy grade: purest

Be sure to talk with me to determine the best quality and grade for your health goals. Together, in an unhurried way, we will discuss your unique needs, answer your questions, and help you determine which one serves you best-both financially and biologically.
