Supplements are a great way to help your body in ways that your diet or lifestyle is currently lacking. Every person has different needs; we all eat different foods, have different jobs and lifestyle habits, have different demands on our muscles, and have genetic differences in our metabolism. I believe that it is my job as a Chiropractor to determine what these specific needs are for each person, and to find solutions where that person may be lacking. I have a great passion to help people feel their best!
As most of you know, I am very selective with the supplements and products that I sell and support in the office. I make sure to go through at least 30 days of trying new products on myself before selling them to anyone. That way I can be confident in the obvious or subtle effects that each product may have on the general healthy population.
HERE ARE SOME WONDERFUL PRODUCTS THAT YOU WILL FIND IN THE OFFICE IN JULY
PhytoMulti - this is a great multivitamin that is made from whole foods. Because it is made from real and not artificial ingredients, the body is able to absorb and utilize the ingredients effectively and produce the desired result. I consider this multivitamin the gold standard of multivitamins. A multivitamin is great to add to your diet if you know that you are not eating a variety of fruits and vegetables or if you aren't able to naturally absorb food very well due to a medical condition.
UltraC - this is a very high quality Vitamin C supplement. The type and quality of the vitamin C you consume determines it's effectiveness in assisting tissue healing and fostering a healthy immune system. People who strength train notice benefits when taking Vitamin C because it will assist in your body's natural ability to heal muscles post-workout, and subsequently rebuilt those muscles (this is how strength training increases muscle mass - micro tears in the muscle due to stressing the muscle's capacity are healed and replaced with more protein fibres to fill in the micro tears and, thus, the muscle enlarges).
Colloidal Multi Min - for people who stretch their body to the limits of physical exertion, it is important to replace the minerals in your body that you lose from sweating and going to the bathroom. This will help to keep your body running smoothly and reduce the amount of fatigue experienced when your body is running low on these minerals.
Magnesium Glycinate Liquid - this is a great product if you tend to have generalized muscle tension, or certain areas of muscle spasms and cramping. When there is a way to feel better and release your muscle cramps, why wouldn't you use it!
KD Plus - this is a multi-functional anti-oxidant support. If you would like a boost or a "top up" for your general health and wellbeing, this product may be your solution!
Collagenics - this supplement supports your tissue healing. It is great to improve your skin health and appearance, as well as support your body's repair processes.
