Vitamins, Supplements, and Nutrition
Americans are among the most overfed and undernourished humans on the planet. Further, with today’s agricultural and environmental factors it is almost impossible to get the vitamins, minerals and nutrients the body needs on a daily basis. A landmark study on the topic by Donald Davis and his team of researchers from the University of Texas (UT) at Austin’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry was published in December 2004 in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition on the decline in minerals and nutrients in foods between 1950 and 1999 One can see a noted decline in the nutritional quality of foods. If it isn’t in the food you can’t absorb it.
Second, remember – everything begins in the gut. If your gut isn’t healthy you can’t absorb nutrients as efficiently. Men and women suffering from hormonal imbalances such as menopause, andropause and symptoms such as adrenal fatigue, PMS and low libido need balanced nutrients, vitamins and minerals to make hormones. Hormone imbalance can also be due to poor metabolism and detoxification of our hormones. Detox also requires nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. This can lead to lack of some and excesses in other nutrients and hence imbalance. Supplements can help correct these metabolic deficiencies, and superior quality, tested products are vital to your health!
Dr. Rohde has taken careful consideration recommending and aligning himself with brand names that deliver the highest quality independently tested ingredients that will ensure consistent results.
THE “PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE” DIFFERENCE
Why “Pharmaceutical Grade” Supplements? Dr. Rohde understands that as we age, nutritional deficiencies are likely to affect our quality of life and accelerate the aging process. By prescribing only the best high-quality multivitamins and supplements we can offer our patients a higher quality of life – especially at the onset of peri-menopause, menopause or andropause, when hormones levels are changing.
While no supplement is 100 percent perfect, “pharmaceutical grade” products, are far superior to most over-the-counter products. Because vitamins and supplements are not required to be tested for content or purity, dosages may be higher, quality may be lower, standards and procedures for manufacturing are often less stringent, and purity levels do not come close to those available through our office. By using only pharmaceutical grade products and the industry’s best manufacturers of vitamins and supplements, Dr. Rohde provides his patients the very best in quality, guaranteed.
