With the majority of supplements, quality matters. Dr. Katie Rose and her colleagues at Nature Medica have spent years researching the highest quality, most effective supplements for their patients. Supplements are evaluated based on potency, bioavailability, absorption, contaminants, hidden allergens (wheat, corn, soy, dairy, nuts, yeast, shellfish), and the presence of fillers and binders.
When it comes to dietary supplements, “you get what you pay for” is often true.
You may have to pay a little more for a quality product, but the investment in your health is worth every penny. If you are researching companies on your own, look for ones that have their products third-party (independently) tested, GMP-audited, and/or are certified by (or registered with) agencies like the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), NSF International Public Health and Safety Company, or the Emerson Quality Program. This assures that products are research-based, pure, consistent, bioavailable, and have good potency. Companies at the forefront of the nutraceutical industry often conduct their own research and include clinically studied or patented ingredients in the formulas.
The majority of the supplements recommended by Dr. Katie Rose can be purchased on site at Nature Medica in Tucson, AZ. If she has recommended something not carried at the office, the ordering manager can place a special order at no additional cost to you and this can be picked up at the office or shipped to you at standard shipping rates. If we are out of something that should be kept in stock, we will ship to you at no additional cost as a courtesy.
For patients who have moved out of town or are participating in one of Dr. Rose’s online programs most supplements can be purchased at one of the following sites, although many patients still choose to have Nature Medica ship supplements if they have moved out of state.
