Currently, the nutritional supplement market has many products whose contents are not consistent with their labels.
You can find excellent supplements at my office and at my family website www.RRTLHEALTH.com, under the heading "Nutritional Supplements". I believe every person eating a standard American diet needs supplementation of vitamins minerals and essential fatty acids. NHANES of the CDC has published studies showing nutritional deficiencies in almost every human studied in one vitamin, mineral, or EFA and usually several. The vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids work as a group to provide your metabolism and immune systems with the raw materials to best protect your health. I consider the supplements part of primary prevention along with diet, exercise, maintaining a proper weight, positive attitude and adequate amount of sleep.
Dr. Rogers can be found in his office five days a week, fifty weeks a year.
