Unfortunately the production of supplements for the purpose of general health is not regulated nearly as well as if should be. This fact was brought to light when the New York Attorney General conducted an investigation on herbal supplements from GNC, Walmart, Walgreens and Target. What was found is shocking. In 4 out of 5 test samples the herbs named on the labels were not even detected and in some cases allergens such as peanuts and gluten were in the bottles and not on the label. The attorney general immediately ordered a cease and desist order forbidding these retailers from selling any tested supplementation and requiring the disclosure of the quality control measures in place.
I hear this and recognize why so many people have become skeptical when it comes to trusting supplements to improve their health. I see so many people have their depression improve or there prostate hypertrophy (BPH) resolve with the very kinds of herbal supplements that this investigation was looking into. The difference is that I am giving you quality supplements that I am positive have exactly what they say on the bottle, in the bottle.
I want to assure you that we only used the best supplements available. In fact, most of the products we use cannot be purchased unless you are a doctor. The internet allows for “black market” sales of just about anything you want to find, you may find Metagenics or Designs for Health products sold there, but they are not authorized to sell online and in some cases they are knockoffs of the actual products. The companies we use pay outside companies to perform blind analysis testing to identify exactly what is in their products and report back to them to assure quality control.
This is how we are able to get such great results. I know exactly what you are getting when you are taking a supplement I recommend for you. Can you say that about the Costco multivitamin you or a loved one is taking?
Please remember that as a patient of our clinic these high quality supplements will always be available to you and we will always be researching and discovering the best ways to ensure you live a life of abundant health.
