Nutritional Supplements & Vitamins – Phoenix, AZ
We all know that our bodies need a broad range of nutritional supplements to keep functioning properly. Nutritional deficiencies are among the most easily preventable causes of disease. It is important to realize that even mild deficiencies can cause irreparable damage, particularly protein deprivation in young children, which may result in some degree of delay in mental development.
Periodic medical check-ups for everyone in the family are the best way to make sure that such deficiencies are corrected before they snowball into a chronic disease. In most cases, all that is required is a change in eating habits or daily absorption of nutritional supplements.
Choosing a Nutritional Supplement or Vitamin that is Right for You
Talk with your doctor or a dietitian about which nutritional supplements might be appropriate for you and in what doses. Be sure to ask about possible side effects of nutritional supplements you’re considering — and if they have interactions with medications you take.
Customceutical Compounding in Phoenix has a broad range of nutritional supplements available and knowledgeable pharmacists to assist you in choosing the correct one for you after you speak to your healthcare provider.
How to Use Nutritional Supplements Properly
However, at Customceutical Compounding we believe that you should treat your intake of vitamins and minerals with the same caution as you would your prescription medications. This includes:
- Taking only necessary supplements
- Making your practitioner aware of the supplements you take
- Being aware of reactions between supplements and prescription meds
- Being aware of possible reactions between supplements
- Taking the proper amount of each supplement
