Healthy eating alone is no longer a guarantee that an average individual will receive all the nutrients that the body needs to optimize health. Pesticides, GM foods, medications, and chemicals enter the body system frequently, and it is difficult to determine which foods are healthy and which are not.
Compounding pharmacy experts often warn patients against the plethora of confusing information available today and the excessive marketing going on in the health and nutrition industry. American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP) provides safe, proven and effective compounding solutions to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and nationwide.
Lack of Essential Nutrients
Widespread soil depletion has led to many foods lacking the minerals they earlier used to have. Genetically modified foods (GMO) are bred to look appealing, but they may not necessarily enhance their nutrient content. GMO corn makes its own insecticide and GMO soy resists herbicides. People are often unable to identify whether they are buying GM foods because the food companies in the US are not required to inform that.
Apart from low nutrient levels in the foods, nutrition is also adversely impact due to the use of many pharmaceutical drugs that can deplete nutrients in the body. For example, statin drugs deplete your CoQ10 which is essential for energy production. Specialists in integrative pharmacy encourage people to eat organic whole foods as far as possible and try to cut back on fast foods, processed foods, and high fructose corn syrup.
Pharmaceutical Grade Supplements
Keeping the prevailing limitations of natural foods in mind, a few safe and effective pharmaceutical grade supplements are now available in compounding pharmacy. These supplements are aimed at helping reduce the symptoms of vitamin deficiencies as well as address many chronic conditions that can be improved with the right nutrients.
“Pharmaceutical Grade” means that the particular substance meets USP (US Pharmacopeia) standards. These standards establish the protocol for analysis and processing of some ingredients to ensure they are delivered in their purest form. Pharmaceutical grade also serves as an assurance that the manufacturer is using good quality ingredients and meeting all the regulatory requirements.
Supplements are available to treat symptoms associated with a variety of conditions, and can provide the following benefits:
- Adrenal Support
- Bone and Hair Health
- Brain Support
- Heart Health
- Hormone Balancing
- Immune Support
- Joint and Muscle
- Mood Stabilizers
