Nutritional SupplementsSERVING BEVERLY HILLS AND LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
Nutritional supplements are an important part of achieving your best health, as most people consume sub-optimal levels of vitamins by diet alone. Vitamins are a crucial factor in looking your best, feeling energetic, and decreasing risk factors for many common diseases. After a thorough medical history, personal exam and consultation, and diagnostic tests, we can recommend the right supplements for you.
We believe that it is prudent for all adults to take vitamin, mineral, and other nutritional supplements. We prescribe pharmacy-grade supplements, or nutraceuticals, that are uniquely matched to each individual patient’s needs. After careful evaluation of diagnostic test results for vitamin, mineral and fatty acid imbalances, health condition, aging bio-marker profile, dietary habits, metabolic and energy needs, free radical load, preexisting health conditions and risk factors, we help our patients commit to a lifetime plan that includes nutritional supplements.
Antioxidants and omega-3 supplements
Our bodies produce toxins, called free radicals, as part of the natural aging process. However, excessive weight loss or gain, minimal exercise, tobacco usage, processed foods, mental stress, and environmental pollutants also cause our bodies to produce free radicals. Higher levels of free radicals can cause an elevated incidence of cancer, stroke, heart attack, and a shorter life span. Antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids are a second line of defense against the additive effects of life in the fast lane. These supplements, like the vitamins we prescribe or recommend, are manufactured in a compounding pharmacy to provide the highest quality formulations.
