As a health professional, I’ve chosen practitioner-only supplements from reputable UK companies who produce high-quality products.
Where possible I use wholefood supplements, these are not high-dose, synthetic vitamins. We were really not designed to swallow high-dose vitamin pills, we were designed to eat food. In the last 50 years, the way our food is grown and processed has changed beyond recognition. No matter how well we eat our diet no longer always provides us with the amount of nutrients we require for vibrant health. Our modern lifestyle has also increased the demand for nutrients and created imbalances.
Wholefood supplements come complete with all the phytonutrients and associated food factors that are necessary for optimal absorption, use and retention in the body. When it comes to vitamins and minerals, more is not always better. High dose, synthetic vitamins can add to your toxic load, further burdening an already stressed system.
