Vitamins and my recommendations are a question I get all the time. Many patients take poor quality supplements from the pharmacy, discount store or from the internet. It’s buyer beware when buying vitamins.
A vitamin is a necessary ingredient for health. Vitamins and other supplements can constitute a planned program to ensure you are getting enough vitamins from your diet.
Many patients ask me what they should be taking as a vitamin wellness program and any other recommendations I might have. I have broken down into categories the supplements I recommend one take to ensure they are getting the balance of vitamins and minerals they need.
I also have a few additional categories that may be of interest to you.
