Nutraceuticals are foods containing health-bolstering effects so significant that they are seen to have medicinal benefit. These specifically formulated vitamins and supplements can be taken accompanying Hormone Pellet Therapy, or as part of a nutrient-enriching dietary regimen. Be sure to ask Dr. Brzezinski about which Nutraceuticals are right for you at your next appointment!
Nutraceuticals are pharmaceutical-grade standardized nutrients and are treated differently in different countries. In the United States, most nutraceuticals are regulated as dietary supplements and food additives by the FDA. They can also be called functional foods and in Canada, for example, there is no distinction between functional foods and nutraceuticals and are considered a product with a physiological benefit or protective capacity. The definition and quality of nutraceuticals in other countries may vary. All of Dr. B's Nutraceuticals are produced in FDA outsourcing compound pharmacies located in the United States and are held to the highest potency and quality standards.
