According to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Affect, as amended, Section 201 (g) (1), the term drug is defined as an “article intended for use in the diagnosis,mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease.” Technically, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids, herbs, or homeopathic remedies are not classified as drugs. However, these substances can have significant effects on physiology and must be used rationally.
In our office, we provide nutritional counseling and make individualized recommendations regarding use of these substances in order to upgrade the quality of foods and a patient’s diet and to supply nutrition to support the physiological and biomechanical processes of the human body.
Although these products may also be suggested with a specific therapeutic purpose in mind, their uses are chiefly designed to support given aspects of metabolic function. Use of nutritional supplements may be safely recommended for patients already using pharmaceutical medications (drugs), but some potentially harmful interactions may occur. For this reason, it is important to keep all of your healthcare providers fully informed about all medications and nutritional supplements, herbs or hormones you may be taking.
Our nutritional supplements, Body Food is manufactured according to GMP (good manufacturing principles) and is of a specific formulation that Dr. Mahl has found to be optimally nutritious and beneficial. All of our supplements, vitamins and nutraceuticals are of the highest quality and purist available, while still being competitively priced for patients, even though the supplements may be a bit higher in financial cost than those found on the shelves of pharmacies or health until stores. Their cost reflects our assurance of their purity, quality, bioavailability (ability to be properly absorbed and utilized by the body), and effectiveness. The chief reason we make these products available as to ensure quality. You are not guaranteed the same level of quality when you purchased supplements from the general marketplace. We are not suggesting that such products have no value; however, given the lack of stringent testing requirements for dietary supplements, product quality varies widely.
In addition to GenLife Regenerative Medicine BodyFoods, we recommend “TA 65” to lengthen telomeres and “Celegen” for overall wellness and energy. These are two of the most exclusive products available in the world today for your health and wellness. They are expensive compared to other supplements, but the data and research have shown that they are clinically relevant and beneficial. Again we highly recommend them for use in patients.
