Doctor Warns Against Mis-leading Labels on Over The Counter Supplements

This weekend I was watching a Cable News program where the anchors bring a Doctor on to answer question relating to health issues in the forefront. What was interesting was that this Doctor, an older gentleman, was talking about nutrition and vitamins. Now I know that Medical Doctors normally received very little education or training in Nutritional Medicine, so I perked up and was happy to hear this Doctor talk about required nutrients and explain that in over the counter supplements what you read on the label is no exactly what you are getting. The example he used was “you may be getting 25% or even less what the label says as there is minimal government oversight on supplement manufacturing.” The exception is Pharmaceutical grade supplements where the manufacturing process from receipt of raw material to testing, production and more testing results in a United States Pharmacopeia (USP) certification on the label. knows that baseline nutritional supplementation with advanced doses of nutrients are vital to the body’s ability to fight oxidative damage and inflammation. Only then can you add optimizers such as Glucosamine (for joint health and to help against chronic joint pain) and specific anti-oxidants and other optimizers such as Omega 3 Fatty Acids. You can be assured that you get what you pay for and obtain the nutrients that will help you achieve optimal cellular health by taking pharmaceutical grade supplements.
