Finding high quality supplements.
Nutrient deficiencies are more common than you think. These can be caused by several reasons. For one, the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) is often lacking in nutrients from vegetables, healthy fats and other important healthy foods. In addition food is often overcooked, overprocessed, and/or over farmed. Having said that, it's very important to buy high quality supplements, not just the over the counter products that are sold at the grocery store (which aren't regulated by the FDA). I recommend supplements that are tested and follow the regulations of the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP). If you want more information about these types of supplements, please contact me for a consultation and we can discuss your health history and personalized recommendations for your needs. One supplement that is very important to buy high quality is fish oil! You want something with low mercury levels, not oxidized or rancid; without "fish burps"! You can search for specific brands at The International Fish Oil Standards Program.
