Getting Good Advice In Perth About Supplements

Taking supplements can be beneficial to people who have a deficiency that is not being met by their daily food intake.

Fresh food should always be the first choice when it comes to providing your body with the vitamins it needs. Good food provides vitamins in the most biologically available form, in the right quantities and combined with other complementary nutrients.

Often supplements may be marketed as ‘all your daily requirements”, unfortunately they don’t provide equal nutrients to those found in fresh foods, nor do they counteract a poor diet.

For example, “a piece of fresh fruit” contains antioxidants, phytochemicals, fibre and many other nutrients that do not make it into the vitamin jar but play a huge role in our better health.

However, there are some specific groups of people who get beneficial outcomes from taking vitamin or mineral supplements to replace deficiencies in their bodies.

Some of these people may be deficient in:

Vegetarians –
• Vitamin B12
• Vitamin D
• Calcium
• Zinc
• Iron
• The three forms of omega-3s fatty acids

Pregnant women-
• Folate
• Iron
• Vitamin C
• Calcium

• Calcium
• Vitamin D
• Vitamin B12
• Potassium

Supplements from Emslie’s Floreat Pharmacy

The chemists at Emslie’s Pharmacy in Perth, can make multi-vitamin and mineral formulations specific to your health needs determined by your doctor through hair analysis.

Some examples include formulations containing;
• Zinc picolinate
• Selenium picolinate
• Boron picolinate
• Molybdenum picolinate
• Manganese picolinate
• Chromium picolinate
• Copper picolinate

Mineral uptake by tissues in our bodies is far greater when the mineral is a picolinate.

As our bodies utilise picolinic acid to absorb and transport certain minerals, and our cells recognise mineral picolinates and readily use them, it makes sense to use them in supplementation.

It can be very confusing and often complete guesswork if you go into a supermarket – type pharmacy looking to purchase supplements. Especially given the huge varieties available.
