Are You Getting As Much Out Of Your Supplements As Their Manufacturers Are Getting Out Of YOU?

Smart Nutrition Starts Here - What’s your Nutritional IQ?

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.

    What grade are the ortho molecular Alpha Base supplements am/pm packs as well as the other types, like Adren All?

    • Jerry Snook says:

      Good question, thanks. Orthomolecular Products including the Alpha Base and Adren All would be considered pharmaceutical grade products. Equally important, they are formulated and tested to obtain maximum efficiency clinically.

  • Dawn Rottermond says:

    Do you have any information about the vitamin supplement packs for women by Arbonne International - as well as their other supplements?

    • Jerry Snook says:

      Thanks for your question. We certainly are aware of Arbonne products but being a product offered through multi-level marketing it is not one we are familiar with or have any experience with. Taking a quick look at their information online they do appear quite costly (compared the Ortho Molecular Product’s Alpha Base Foundation Pack that we sell), plus it lacks any Omega 3s, and has no Vitamin K in it. If you choose to use this product you may want to consider adding Omega 3s and Vitamin K, especially since these are so important to overall health and bone health respectively.
