Good morning team,
I would like to obtain herbs that are suggested by Dr. Gardner. My question is where is there a reliable source/sources for a good quality product?
Thank you for your help.
As you can probably imagine, there are many levels of quality for all supplements, including herbs. The quality and content can be confusing for the following reasons:
- The amount listed may not be present.
- There can be toxins that are not removed, such as arsenic, mercury, lead. Although the testing is expensive, tablets and capsules can be sent to labs that test for these toxins so you know for sure.
- They may not be in a form that the body readily digests them so they can be absorbed. You know that you have a non-bio-available supplement if you can read the capsule label in the bottom of the port-a-potty. Those who clean port-a-pottys comment on the expensive “nutrition” that wasn’t absorbed in the body.
Generally speaking, health food stores carry a higher quality brand than regular stores and pharmacies. Network marketing companies tend to have higher quality and better quality control.
I mainly order my supplements and herbs from labs that make their products available to practitioners only. They have superb quality control and don’t put their products on the internet or sell to the lay person. The supplements that I use, the Primivia line, are my personal formulations that I have designed and the laboratories create to my specifications. I arranged to have the Vital Primivia capsules placed in a daily packet so that you only need to open the packet and take the contents, instead of opening 6 or more bottles each time you take supplements. This also makes it easier to transport a week’s worth or whatever length of time you will be gone, in a purse, bag, or suitcase, rather than several bottles or a large pill container.
