Best Food Based Supplements

supplements - Best Food Based Supplements

Buying supplements can be daunting to say the least! How do you know what you’re buying is legit? how do you know its a good brand or has pharmaceutical grade properties?

It’s hard to trust the label these days since supplements are NOT regulated by the DEA. I’ve created a list of supplements that I recommend for my patients on a regular basis. These are all pharmaceutical grade trusted brands that I actually use for myself and my family as well.

Best Food Based Supplements

1. Standard Process

⇒NOTE: unfortunately you CANNOT order most items of this product unless you get it through an independent physician distributor. Because they are SO pure, that also makes them very potent and potentially dangerous if not under the supervision of a physician

Most Chiropractors and Naturopathic doctors sell this product as well as many functional medicine providers.

I personally use these supplements and LOVE them. They are food based which means they are literally made from FOOD with no chemically engineered vitamins/minerals (like so much we see at a general store these days).

Generally there is not a large selection on AMAZON because they are meant to be distributed through a health care professional but you CAN get some of the basic ones



2. New Chapter

New Chapter makes seriously good quality supplements based on ingredients you might also be eating today. What’s important about food-based ingredients is that your body is designed to recognize food a lot better than chemicals = better absorption and utilization and LESS WASTE.

They’re a great brand for daily vitamins as well as supplements for specific conditions like prenatal health, inflammation, cold and flu etc.


3. Mega Food

Another high quality whole foods supplement with ingredients you can actually recognize! how cool is that?  I have not personally used these but have come across them as highly recommended by the whole food community.


4. Health Force

 This Passion Statement  by Dr. Jameth Sheridan, Original Founder SPEAKS VOLUMES

Quality, therapeutic concentration, and affordability of nutritional products makes all the difference!

The quality, therapeutic concentration, and affordability of a nutritional product can, and often does, mean the difference between lethargy and energy, sickness and health, and, quite literally, life and death. I don’t want anyone to be tired, sick, or dead because they could not obtain or afford the best possible product. If someone does not feel this same way, they should not be in the nutritional product business. I live and breathe this philosophy in both my personal and professional life and constantly strive to evolve HealthForce products and offer them at the best possible values – with a reverence for all life.

These biocompatible supplements formulated by Dr. Jameth Sheridan go right to the source…FOOD!


5. Flora Supplements

Flora vitamins provide raw ingredients that are certified organic. They were established in 1965. They are a nutraceutical manufacturer known for high quality whole food supplements, full-spectrum botanical extracts, unrefined seed oils, and European health tonics. Their mission statement is impressive and so are they’re product selections!


6. Thorne Research

Thorne research is obvious from its name, but is a research based supplement company which is made with raw ingredients and goes through very stringent testing to make sure they are they purest of the pure! These are pharmaceutical grade and I often recommend this brand to patients.


Hopefully this was helpful for you all! Don’t forget to first consult with your primary care provider, homeopathic or functional medicine doctor before starting a supplement/vitamin regimen of your own. Happy healing!
Yours Truly,

I totally believe in your body healing itself with proper care. Congrats on the website and thanks for being a voice for natural healing!
