Some medical doctors and nutritionists do not find nutritional supplements necessary or beneficial. They feel that all of our necessary nutrients can be obtained from whole foods. It is true that food can provide all of the nutrients required by the human body; however, eating would need to become a full-time job to accomplish this. Most people do not have time to buy, prepare, and eat all of the foods necessary to supply their bodies with the proper amounts of macronutrients and, especially, micronutrients. Nutritional supplements are a necessary part of most nutrition plans. They are extremely beneficial and convenient, and they can assure adequate nutrient intake.
Despite a healthy nutrition plan, obtaining an adequate amount of important nutrients is very difficult and unlikely. Vitamin D is just one example. Many people are vitamin D deficient despite spending time in the sun, consuming vitamin D–fortified milk or dairy products, and supplementing with the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of 400 IUs of vitamin D per day. Because of the significant number of people with vitamin D deficiency, national expert endocrinologists are now recommending 2,000-5,000 IUs of vitamin D per day. Blood work can determine your vitamin D levels, and your Genemedics Health Institute medical doctor can determine the proper dosage for you. As with vitamin D, many people most likely have deficiencies in other vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, omega 3 fatty acids, and other very important nutrients. Because of this, proper supplementation to assure that adequate amounts of these nutrients are consumed is extremely important.
So where do you begin? Choosing the right supplement plan is a very difficult process. With so many supplements and supplement companies out there, how do you know which supplements are right for you and which company to choose?
Unfortunately, the quality of supplements varies greatly between supplement companies. There are few supplement companies on the market that provide very high-quality products. The supplement company you choose makes all the difference. The supplement industry is regulated by a government body that assesses manufacturers for good manufacturing practice (GMP). It was estimated that only 30% of the manufacturers met GMP standards. Genemedics Health Institute medical doctors recommend supplements from GMP-certified Genemedics Nutrition because they provide the highest quality pharmaceutical-grade supplements available on the market!
