What is a “nutritional” or “dietary” supplement?
A “nutritional” or “dietary” supplement is simply food nutrients in supplement form. They can be plant, mineral, or animal based. Some examples include multivitamins, antioxidants, and herbal tinctures. Dietary supplements are not drugs; they are designed to supply the body with concentrated nutrition for optimal function.
Why do I need supplements? I eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
If your practitioner has recommended supplements, it simply means that your body is in need of some extra nutrients. Supplements are not intended to replace healthy food but should work in concert with proper diet and lifestyle choices. Additionally, there have been recent studies indicating that the nutrient content in our foods is declining and is not what it was several decades ago. This is believed to be the result of large-scale farming and food production practices. Supplements are a natural and affordable way to ensure that our bodies are getting the building blocks they need for normal function.

How long will I have to take supplements?
That is unique to each individual. Some supplements can be taken for long-term maintenance, such as greens, digestive enzymes or vitamins; while others are more beneficial for short-term use such as glandulars and certain herbs. Your practitioner will design a customized supplement program for you based on your individual needs.
