With the large array of supplements on the market, and so many stores and online companies from which to choose, shopping for the right products can be confusing! How do you know the supplement contains exactly what the label says it does? How do you know if the supplements have been stored properly for maximum potency? Who can you trust?
At Integrative Health, we have years of clinical experience working with supplements. Here are a number of reasons to buy your supplements directly from us:
We carry physician-grade products with the purest and finest ingredients available. This way, you know each supplement actually contains what is listed on the label, and there is minimal variability from bottle to bottle and pill to pill. Many products in the marketplace lack quality or may not even contain the product listed on the label.
- For instance, GNC, Target, Wal-Mart and Walgreens have “received cease-and-desist letters demanding that they stop selling a number of their dietary supplements, few of which were found to contain the herbs shown on their labels and many of which included potential allergens not identified in the ingredients list.”1
The doctors at Integrative Health have years of clinical experience, knowing which supplements work, any possible side effects, proper dosages, and the timeline of expected results. In addition, we have already done the research on finding the active forms of nutrients that are most absorbable and beneficial for your health.
- PROPER STORAGE
Online companies sell supplements; however, they may not be stored properly or may have been adulterated. Some of our Integrative Health patients have shown us powders purchased online, and the color of the powder was completely different than what we receive from the manufacturer. If considering ordering online, take into account how the products may be stored, especially in the hot summer months. At Integrative Health, we make sure our products stay out of sunlight and in a cool environment. The refrigerated products arrive on ice and stay refrigerated in order to be the most potent and effective for your health.
Our supplements are competitively priced and high quality. A lot of inexpensive supplements save you money by using nutrient forms that are non-absorbable or by adding fillers. If you can’t absorb it, it will just pass through you and your “saved money” ends up in the toilet. Plus, the fillers could make the supplement low in potency and increase the chance for side effects or allergic reactions.
- CONVENIENCE & LOCAL SUPPORT
You can conveniently pick up your supplements from Integrative Health to get started with your treatment plan right away. Another option is to have our office staff ship your supplements directly to you. This is great for those who live far or enjoy the convenience of home delivery. Plus, when you purchase from Integrative Health, you are supporting a locally-owned business that truly cares about your health success.
