Studies show that the average diet in the U.S. consists of too much fat, too much sugar, not enough fiber, and not enough fresh fruits and vegetables. We are eating plenty of calories, but they are often “empty” calories, meaning that they have very low levels of the essential vitamins and minerals we need to stay healthy. Since the majority of meals in the U.S. are currently eaten in restaurants or “on the run”, it makes sense to take a vitamin supplement to fill in the gaps. Metagenics products can help you replenish these vitamins in a safe and convenient way. While it is important to remember the value of a nutritional supplement in maintaining health, we should never think that taking a supplement replaces a good diet.
Many people might wonder why our vitamins are better than over-the-counter multivitamins—after all, they both have the same ingredients, right? Simply looking at the ingredients does not necessarily provide enough information to assess value. For example, the same amount of elemental calcium can be found as, among others, citrate or carbonate, but have significantly different absorption dynamics. Carbonates are much cheaper and are often used by supplement manufacturers, even though the more expensive citrates are better absorbed. Frequently, higher quality comes with a higher price, but is ultimately a better value if it provides reliable outcomes.
A product that doesn’t work—even at a lower price—is still too expensive.
When selecting your daily vitamins, it is important to make sure that they are of highest quality. Along with several doctors in the area, we recommend Metagenics and OrthoMolecular for your nutritional solutions. Both companies have full product lines to promote healthy living through the entire year.
For over 20 years, Metagenics has been the most trusted name in professional nutritional supplements. Metagenics formulas are manufactured and handled in facilities that have pharmaceutical certification or are certified for good manufacturing practices (GMP) by the NPA, NSF International, and TGA. The Metagenics difference is quality, and quality can make a big difference in health outcomes. Each product batch is tested to ensure that you receive the pure, rich vitamins and minerals that can be offered.
Metagenics offers over 400 formulas for individual health concerns, such as heart health, joint heath, hormone balance, women’s health, men’s health, children’s health, body composition, gastrointestinal health, detoxification, and more.
How do I get Metagenics products?
Metagenics works with only qualified healthcare professionals. Because of our natural compounding methodology, we have been given special permission to carry their products; usually, only doctors and medical offices are allowed to carry these lines. It is recommended that you speak with your doctor before starting any health regimen, even vitamins and minerals. Once your needs have been evaluated, your doctor can tell you which products would work best. After that, products can be picked up in our store or mailed out to you.
