Vitamins/Supplements

Did you know that only fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts and animal products contain the nutrients we need? Almost everything else has no nutritional content. It is also very difficult to get enough nutrients even if you are eating a healthy diet. This is why we all need vitamins, which will lead to living a long and healthy life. The U.S.D.A. states that drug companies are allowed to add up to 50% fillers in their products and do not have to list them on the ingredients. These fillers are typically partially hydrogenated oils, artificial colors, magnesium sterate and titanium dioxide. The reasons for using these fillers are because they are cheaper, easier to make, are more appealing to the eye and have a longer shelf life (which equates to money). The real problem lies in how these fillers impact your health. They have been shown to cause heart problems, strokes, nervous system problems, suppress your immune system, and cause cancer and diabetes.

We carry Standard Process and Herbalogica brand vitamins and supplements. They have 0% fillers, as they are herbal and whole food based. It is very difficult to find good quality vitamins or supplements and we carry the highest quality.
