First on our list of resources are supplements and nutritionals. What makes these items functional nutrition? These supplements and nutritionals are high in nutrients which are lacking in today's foods and the Standard American Diet (SAD diet). These items offer higher than the pitiful RDA amounts of nutrients, in fact they offer therapeutic levels of vitamins, minerals, naturally occurring enzymes, probiotics, immune factors, antioxidants, bioflavanoids and so much more.
The recommendations below serve as a baseline of nutritional supplements which can be use to provide the foundation of anyone's functional nutrition plan. When I review a clients at-home test results, functional labs and nutritional questionnaire with them, I recommend additional supplements which help to correct and improve imbalances.
Professional Formulas offer individualized products that are easy to use and clinically proven, even for tough cases. Their broad line of targeted supplements and micro-dosed remedies work together - or with your existing protocols - to provide a synergistic biochemistry. The ability to tailor the program to meet each client's individual needs, makes this company one of my favorite functional nutrition resources.
Their products are grouped into four primary categories to make it easy to create a comprehensive, individualized program. The categories are as follows: Condition and Symptom Remedies (red), Organ and System Remedies (blue), Supplements (green) and Allergens, Pathogens and Toxins (yellow).
See some of the most frequently requested formulations below. With over 2,000 nutritional remedies, there is a lot of options. Don't let this overwhelm you though, I can help you determine which ones are approriate for your needs and health goals.
