Have you taken your vitamins today? Do I sound like your mother? Most doctors now recommend taking a good daily multiple vitamin. This is quite a reversal for many physicians who previously thought vitamins were a “waste of money”. Well, they were partly correct. Many vitamins and supplements ARE a “waste of money.” Why? Because they are mostly synthetic … phoney stuff, artificial colors and fillers with which your body doesn’t know what to do!
Test: does your present multi-vitamin list Vitamin E? Is it listed as Vitamin E (as d-Alpha Tocopherol) or does it have an “l” after the “d”? Vitamin E (as dl-Alpha Tocopherol) is synthetic and un-natural; made in the chemistry lab. Will it act the same way in your body? Will it do what you wanted your Vitamin E to do?
Professional health and nutrition stores carry the real thing; the genuine article. They don’t sell TV’s and hi-fi equipment or repair screen doors. All health food stores pledge to you their full attention to your questions and concerns about your health. They promise to empower you in every way to help you discover ways to improve your own immune system and address the health issues that matter to you. Remember though, health food and nutrition stores do not employ doctors or pharmacists, and any suggestions they make are based on other customer successes, company claims, or their own personal experiences with various products. Always consult a trained health care practitioner.
At a professional health and nutrition store they want to help you discover how real and natural vitamins and supplements can help improve your well being.
The older we get, the smarter we get about what we put in our mouths. And with supplements, we supplement an already good diet, and sort of fill in the gaps. Health and nutrition stores suggest that good nutrition begins in the produce aisle of either their store, if they sell foods or your grocery store, but then come to a good health and nutrition store to supplement your already healthy diet.

Phil’s plunge into the world of natural foods and nutrition actually started while he was in tremendous pain passing a kidney stone. Shortly after, when leaving his doctor’s office, the nurse whispered – take cranberry. This started Phil into health food stores in the early 1990’s on a regular basis to get a Cranberry Extract. Phil further developed his interest in vitamins and supplements working for one of the foremost health and nutrition store owners in the Upper Midwest.
