Supplements for the New Year
A new year is here! Improving health and weight loss is the most common new year resolution. A great way to improve health and well-being is through supplementation. You can take supplements to fill the gaps in our diets when we eat poorly, support our diet when we do eat healthy, and encourage our body to function optimally. The world of supplements, herbs, and vitamins is vast! You can buy supplements at doctor’s offices, grocery stores, malls, and even gas station/convenience stores. Finding a brand and company that is reputable, honest, and trustworthy can be really challenging because there are thousands to choose from! When ingesting something into your body, it is important to know exactly what is in those vitamins you take daily, the cream you rub on a sore sport, or a serum you tuck under your tongue. Here at Miller Sports & Family Chiropractic, we choose to provide our patients with supplements from a company called Nutritional Frontiers (NF), and here’s why.
The world of nutrition and science changes every single day. NF prides themselves in compliance with regulations and the best technology researching absorption and lasting results. The company has been at the forefront of developing cutting edge formulas and offering those formulas in a variety of ingestion options, which allows everyone to benefit from their products. Nutritional Frontiers also prides themselves in honesty. They guarantee that the formula inside the bottle meets 100% what the label claims. They do not use “cheap fillers” like other companies are known to do. The company truly cares in better the lives of their customers. Nutritional Frontiers supplies their product all over the U.S. but their main office can be found right down the road in Bridgeville, PA!
The ingredients of Nutritional Frontiers
Many times the question asked is, by now aren’t all ingredients the same? The answer is no. In research, it is not uncommon practice to test one ingredient in a clinical trial, but then find a “cheaper” version of the ingredient and put that into the supplement to lower cost. Nutritional Frontiers guarantees that the ingredient tested in research is the exact same ingredients that ends up in the bottle. Honesty is important!
A therapeutic dose is the amount of ingredient that should be ingested each day to receive a therapeutic effect. Part of the research component is a determination of how much of an ingredient is needed and therefore, how much goes into the capsule, tablet, etc. Again, it is not uncommon for some companies to “cheat” the amount of the product that goes into the supplement capsule. Basically meaning we can think we are taking a supplement to better ourselves, but we are never actually what we need to benefit from it! WHAT?
Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP)
Every formula and product from NF is produced in a cGMP facility which are now regulated by the FDA. The regulation holds manufacturing responsible for abiding to a specific set of processes, packaging standards, and safety regulations. By manufacturing these formulas and products in a regulated facility, the best quality is guaranteed!
NF takes great pride and responsibility for providing their customers with high quality ingredients. In many unregulated companies ingredients are altered, which affects their potency and therapeutic benefit. Many times, artificial colors, flavors, and non-digestible fillers are used to disguise the supplement. This is frustrating because we take supplements to better ourselves and what we are ingested is not what we think! UGH! NF uses pure, natural, and beneficial ingredients that are designed by a vast array of medical professionals. Look for the NF Pure label on your product to ensure guaranteed purity!
Nutritional Frontiers: Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegetarian
Look for the associated label on the product to guarantee the supplement is gluten free, dairy free, or vegetarian! Many individuals suffer from sensitivities that make it challenging to find supplements to aid in their healthcare. NF has options to accommodate to these sensitivity needs, which adds peace of mind to know that when the appropriate label is present, it is guaranteed to NOT have gluten, dairy, or animal byproducts.
Variety of Ingestion Options
NF has discovered that one of the most common reasons people do not take supplements and vitamins, is the way to have to ingest it. Many cannot swallow pills, can’t stomach the liquid, or gag on a chewable. NF has tried to solve this issue by offering the same product in several ingestion forms. This allows flexibility for the consumer as well as accommodating to age, because even children can benefit from supplements!
