As you may have seen lately, some suppliers of over the counter supplements may not be all that they claim to be. It is understandable that trying to decide which vitamin is needed for this or which mineral is needed for that and what at what dose can be a overwhelming experience let alone deciding on which brand has proven efficacy. How can you be sure you are buying the most affective and safest product? Well, unless you have been advised by someone that is specifically trained in this area, you cannot! You can be assured that the Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA) of Australia has the the most toughest standards for testing therapeutic supplements in the world. Supplements can and do work magic when they are practioner precribed in the right dose and form. But they need to be a part of a therapeutic health plan that has been prescribed by a practitoner trained in this area to be most effective.
