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.

âNOTE: 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. Whatâs 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.

4. Health Force
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 donât 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 valuesÂ â with a reverence for all life.
These biocompatible supplements formulated by Dr. Jameth Sheridan go right to the source…FOOD!
