Vitamins! A Source of Healthy Living.

 

From depression to bone healthy, immunity, anxiety, and muscle pain ,etc, Vitamins don’t provide energy, like carbohydrates, proteins and fats, but they are essential compounds that help the body grow and function optimally. Vitamins have a specific role to play in the natural wear and tear of the body. There are about 13 essential vitamins that help keep you bones healthy and strong, heal wounds, boost you immunity and assist in obtaining energy from your food intake. If there is a deficiency in a certain or many vitamins, then you may be left vulnerable to infections,  you may feel more lethargic and there may be more complications that may affect you long term.   

Dr. Michael Grossman has partnered up with Metagenics Nutritional Supplement Company which requires a health care provider in order to obtain these supplements. They are some of the highest quality, purest form with no artificial coloring. If you have any questions regarding your current supplement use, then don’t hesitate to make an appointment!
