Nutritional Supplements

Nutritional supplements may be extremely helpful for restoring balance to the body, promoting healing and reaching wellness and fitness goals.

Unfortunately, buying supplements can be extremely confusing. There are countless options and many poor quality supplements out there, loaded with artificial ingredients and contaminants. How is one to decide which supplements to buy?

As a Registered Dietitian, I am able to order professional-grade supplements for my clients. Unlike most conventional supplements on the market today, all of the supplements I order are free of artificial colors, preservatives, binders and fillers. They are also third-party tested for purity. If you are interested in ordering professional supplements through me, please contact me at 206.604.5239.

If you would like to purchase supplements on your own, I recommend shopping at Super Supplements (www.supersup.com). They have stores all around the Seattle area, carry high quality brands and offer excellent prices. Whole Foods Market and PCC Natural Markets also offer high quality brands, but Super Supplements generally offers more competitive prices.
If you prefer to shop at another location, here are some guidelines to follow to help ensure you get a high quality product.

Buy only supplements that:
  • Contain no artificial colors (Red 40, Yellow 6, etc.), preservatives,
    binders, fillers or hydrogenated oils;
  • Contain no artificial sweeteners (aspartame, acesulfame K,
    sucralose, etc.);
  • Contain no allergens (such as gluten or dairy), if you have a
    sensitivity to these;
  • Have been third-party tested (you may need to call the company to ask).
    Third party testing assures that the supplements contain what the
    manufacturer says they contain in the quantities they specify. This is
    important since the FDA does not regulate nutritional supplements and
    many supplements do not contain what they claim.
