We all know that our bodies need a broad range of nutritional supplements to keep functioning properly. Healthcare experts have told us time and time again that consumption of nutritional supplements – liquid vitamins, antioxidants etc – is a must for our health.
Nutritional deficiencies are among the most easily preventable causes of disease. It is important to realize that even mild ones can cause irreparable damage, particularly protein deprivation in young children, which may result in some degree of mental retardation. Periodic medical check-ups for everyone in the family are the best way to make sure that such deficiencies are corrected before they snowball into a chronic disease. In most cases, all that is required is a change in eating habits or daily absorption of nutritional supplements.
Talk with your doctor or a dietitian about which nutritional supplements might be appropriate for you and in what doses. Be sure to ask about possible side effects of nutritional supplements you’re considering — and if they have interactions with medications you take.
Vitamin and Mineral Supplements
Essential Pharmacy Compounding recognizes the many benefits nutritional supplements can provide when used properly.
Millions of people regularly take vitamins and minerals to supplement their diets. Sometimes their diets lack certain nutrients, or not enough of them. In other instances, a dysfunction in the body prevents the nutrients from being absorbed properly. In cases like these, supplemental vitamins and minerals can be very useful in maintaining proper nutritional balance.
Nutritional Supplements Work Best when Used Properly. However, at Essential Pharmacy Compounding we believe that you should treat your intake of vitamins and minerals with the same caution as you would your prescription medications.
- Taking only necessary supplements
- Making your practitioner aware of the supplements you take
- Being aware of reactions between supplements and prescription meds
- Being aware of possible reactions between supplements
- Taking the proper amount of each supplement
