Is your supplement of a high quality or are you just eating more junk?

As a patient of the Myrtle Grove Chiropractic & Acupuncture Center, our treatments are designed to enhance the function of your brain, your spine and neutralize the stress your body has accumulated since your last adjustment. The brain and spinal cord (your Central Nervous System) need specific ingredients to regulate the body. Without these ingredients certain biologic functions won’t be able to occur.

Do you and your loved ones take a multivitamin?  Why or Why not?

Many consumers spend massive amounts of money taking vitamins, but not all vitamins are created equal. President Clinton passed a law in the mid nineties claiming pharmaceutical and other vitamin companies only need to have 10% of the ingredients the company actually claims. 

What does this mean to you? 

It means 90% of the product is a lie!  

A high percentage of vitamins on the market are junk. If we are going to spend our health dollars on vitamins, let’s make sure we are using a high quality vitamin.

That is why we recommend and stock Thorne products. Thorne products are doctor grade, clean vitamins.

Most of the general population doesn’t realize how important it is to take a multi-vitamin. In order to regulate our body, the nervous system needs specific ingredients for specific chemical reactions to occur to keep our brain, heart, digestive system, etc working. Most of our foods no longer contain the essential nutrients needed to run the body for a variety of reasons that include the quality of the dirt, pesticides, insecticides and genetically modified methods of growing. 


Nutritional experts agree that most of the population would benefit from taking a multivitamin. 

These groups include:

1.  Teenagers

2.  Athletes

3.  Elderly

4.  Those on a restrictive diet for conditions such as but not limited to weight loss, heart disease, kidney disease, and diabetes

5.  Those with chronic disease including arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, etc

6.  Those taking any medications

Thorne carries many multivitamins including those for pregnant mothers, postmenopausal women and men over the age of 40.  Our most popular multivitamin is called Basic Nutrients 2/day because it is an ideal multivitamin for the entire family. They are small enough for young children and the elderly to take (smaller dosage) and easy enough for teenagers, adults and to take with ease.

You may not notice any specific improvement by incorporating a regular store-bought multivitamin into your daily health routine. What you need to consider is a doctor grade multivitamin supplement will act as dietary health insurance to be certain all essential nutrients are consumed daily. Greater health benefits can be realized when a healthy diet is combined with a high-grade multivitamin.
