The providers at Austin Family Medicine Associates are advocates for nutritional supplementation based on the specific needs of each patient. Food is first, however in this busy, hectic world, many do not find time to eat a nutrient dense diet on a consistent basis. Even in the instance of a perfect diet, imperfect digestion and absorption can lead to nutrient deficiencies which may lead to gene expression of chronic diseases and leave the body more susceptible to acute illnesses like flu, sinus infections, upper respiratory infections and other bacterial and viral infections.

Addressing the root causes of chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, diabetes, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity and heart disease, can help your body function at a more optimal state.

Two commonly asked questions are: “Where should I get my supplements” and “Can I find a less expensive substitute? ”
The simple answer is, only professional grade supplements from a reputable company are recommended as they are tested for absorbability and are science based. After all, if you are spending your hard earned money, you should make sure that they are broken down appropriately and utilized by your body. You also want to avoid toxic fillers, which may be found in less expensive products. If you have ever refrained from taking fish oil due to “fishy burps”, then you more than likely ended up with an impure, rancid fish oil.
