Ever have patients question why they should buy supplements from you versus the grocery store? Need a solid explanation for how to properly read a vitamin label? With the avalanche of supplements readily available today, it's important to know how to read a vitamin label and determine its quality, potency, and efficacy. Unfortunately, vitamin labels aren't particularly telling—a "food-based" vitamin doesn’t necessarily come from food, and most vitamin D is not made from sunlight as it should be. The truth is, the majority of supplements on the market are high dose, synthetics that provide only marginal benefits at best and are most likely harming the body instead. This FREE webinar will give you the play-by-play explanation on whole food nutrition vs. synthetics so you can respond intelligently to any patient coming through your door. Drs. Marlene & Will have dialed-in their explanation over the past 13 years and will share it all with you. FREE for account holders, and approved for 1-hour towards the Applied Clinical Nutrition (ACN) Program.
