While whole, healthy food is the basis of all therapeutic nutrition programs, nutritional supplements and botanicals are often critically important in supporting biochemical and metabolic pathways that have a down-stream effect on the health conditions for which most people seek help. Not all supplements are created equally. Many companies focus more on labels and ads over quality. I have done extensive research and recommend supplement companies offering:
- Pure, high-quality ingredients that are free of contaminants, binders, and fillers, and are researched for safety and effectiveness
- Premium, clinically-reliable ingredients, evidence-based dosing
- Companies that are ethically-based despite lack of government regulations; and assay every lot of raw materials to be sure label claims are met.
- Highest quality manufacturing – exceeds FDA mandated GMP (good manufacturing process) standards.
Some of the companies I recommend are:
- Natura Health Products
