If you've browsed some of the pages of this site, you'll know by now that I am a naturopathic physician practicing in Michigan.
You may have found this site through the search engines or arrived here after seeing me in person...possibly a lecture or consultation I gave at a health food store near you.
Although I believe achieving and maintaining optimal health needs to be a holistic and multi-faceted approach, which is what I offer my one-on-one clients, I know that high quality nutritional supplements can play a valuable role in this process.
I have had several people inquire as to what is the best supplement, or supplement company. Unfortunately there is no simple answer to this question.
In my opinion there are three characteristics of a good a supplement.
The first is that they are coming from a reputable source. Such as a company that has established a reputation for a quality product that can be verified by an external evaluating source.
The second characteristic is that the formulations be designed intelligently, and consist of nutrient combinations that make sense and are well researched.
The final, and most important characteristic, is that the supplement works for you.
As humans, we are uniquely dynamic beings, and we exhibit immeasurable variations in our biochemical make-up. To think that one supplement is ideal for everyone is unrealistic, and in my opinion akin to the "magic pill" fallacy that has embedded itself into our collective psyche.
After several requests to do so, I have agreed to identify what I believe to be quality supplement lines that exhibit the characteristics I mentioned above. One of these lines is Xtend-Life Natural Products....
Their well thought out formulation called Total Balance is their flagship health product.
The formulator of the product is a respected Ph.D scientist, but more important to me, is also a Naturopathic physician as well.
I feel the ingredients that make up Total Balance are properly researched, and offers a dynamic combination of nutrients whose synergy may offer added benefits to some users.
As part of your daily health regimen, I recommend their Total Balance combined with their Omega 3 esters product, which will provide vital essential fatty acids, which many of us in today's Western society are sorely lacking.

Another quality product I have identified is the supplement Greens First by Wellness Watchers. This product was formulated by a talented Chiropractic doctor. Greens First is a unique and powerful combination of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and nutrients.
According to the USDA food pyramid, a minimum of eight servings of fruits and vegetables are recommended daily. As a Naturopathic physician, I suggest increasing that minimum to twelve daily servings for health maintenance and disease prevention.
The fruit and vegetable component of our diet is essential for regulating blood sugar and cholesterol, balancing pH, maintaining healthy digestion, and sustaining energy levels.
I recommend Greens First for individuals who do not eat the daily minimum of suggested fruits and vegetables, or for anyone who suffers from chronic fatigue. For exclusive access to the Wellness Watchers product line, and to learn more about Greens First, visit the link.
To your good health,
Rami El-Hussieny, N.D.
