Identifying Quality Products
With an ever growing list of available health products on the market it can be wildly challenging to determine what you actually need and even more importantly, what is safe.
That’s why I’ve aligned myself with a product partner that exceeds industry standards and even offers and athlete guarantee.
7 Quality Standards To Look For:
- Follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) requirements established by NSF International (Public Health & Safety Organization) since supplements are not a regulated industry.
- FDA registered establishment because of the quality inspection standards.
- Guarantee of purity standards (ask an Olympic athlete how important this is!)
- Potency standards – that what is in the bottle is what it says.
- Pharmaceutical grade standards – this is the highest manufacturing standard.
- Product manufacturing based on SCIENCE – because your health isn’t a guessing game.
- Bioavailable version because not every product is created this way and you want the benefits of the nutrients you’re taking.

Essential Cellular Support
Even a perfect diet still falls short of optimal nutrition. The RDA (recommended daily allowance) was established during World War II to prevent soldiers from developing illnesses like Scurvy (a vitamin C deficiency). Those numbers don’t account for today’s chronic illnesses. My partner product is formulated for ODI (optimal daily intake) for your health, but still within the UL (upper limits) for safety.
Omega-3 fatty acids are called EFAs (essential fatty acids) because quite simply they are essential for good health. They contribute to brain development , cellular function, and immune, joint, and cardiovascular health. Not all omegas (a.k.a. fish oils) are created equal and many are contaminated. Be sure to choose one that has been double distilled.
Growing research indicates that most people are deficient in Vitamin D. The current RDA of 400 IU may not be enough and many doctors are recommending more. Check with yours to see what your needs might be. Vitamin D contributes to good bone health and in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus.
Digestion & Detox
Your immune system is one of the most complex systems in the body. Immune health is related to good nutrition and that means proper digestion and absorption of nutrients. Having a “healthy gut” will support better overall health and probiotics are key to improving compromised digestion. Choose one that will survive the harsh environment of the stomach and makes it’s way to GI tract and is also dairy and sugar free.
Your body naturally produces the enzymes required for digestion, which is how we receive nutrients from our food. However, as we age there is a decline in the production of digestive enzymes and your body could use a little extra support. Something as simple as a digestive enzyme could help your body maximize the nutrition from all those healthy foods you are eating to fuel your body. Get the most from your meals!
P.S. – enzymes can even help ease digestive discomfort.
Your liver has a really big job; quite literally so much that I can’t cover it here, but one of the important roles is in detoxification of the body. We are constantly exposed to toxins in our environment and even through food. Give your liver a helping hand to ease the detoxification process which helps your body function optimally and reduce oxidative stress (cell damage) with milk thistle to help boost enzymes production and nutrients like n-acetyl l-cysteine and alpha-lipoic acid to further support the liver.
