The below link to a Fox news story regarding vitamins is interesting in a couple of different ways. First of all it makes some good points.
- Manufacturers often lie about what they put in their supplements
- The FDA or any other regulatory entity for that matter, do not oversee these nutraceutical products To ensure purity potency efficacy and safety.
- There is a legitimate question on whether or not these supplements even improve your health. Not to mention the fact that they could potentially harm your health.
- And that supplements could interfere the metabolism of other medications you're taking.
What is interesting to me however, as someone who has been in private practice for the last 10 years plus, is that this doctor that they called in as an expert is missing the boat for a couple of key points. First of all, She says that she asked her patients to provide a list of supplements and the doses. While that is a good start, she does not seem to be aware of any measuring tool or actually tools, to monitor efficacy. Furthermore, she made no mention of pharmaceutical grade supplements that are on the market That can be utilized; probably because she does not know; probably because she does not measure!
The point is, that there are ways to measure efficacy, and there are true pharmaceutical grade supplements out on the market that can safely modify disease, and be an asset in our arsenal And disease treatment.
