Herbal and Nutritional Supplements
There is very little regulation over the nutritional supplement market. Many supplements don’t actually contain the amounts or even the ingredients that they list on their labels. Nutritional supplement companies will often fill their products with synthetic versions of nutrients because they are less expensive. However, depending on the individual, these synthetic ingredients may not be easily absorbed. They often block absorption of the more natural version of the nutrient obtained in food. A specific vitamin or mineral may be vitally important for one person, but will actually be toxic or dangerous for another person. Dr. Goldberg only recommends high-quality supplements that have extensive quality assurance protocols in place. Her supplement regimens are individualized for each patient to make sure that they address their specific nutrient needs and health concerns.
