Why is Nutraceutical Compounding Important for Your Patient?

More and more, your patients are changing their lifestyles, taking control of their health through greater awareness and self-treatment, and looking to pharmacists for their trusted knowledge concerning many types of conditions and treatment options.

Combined with a healthy diet, the use of Nutraceuticals may contribute to health promotion and disease prevention at all stages of life.

  • Prenatal multivitamins and minerals are prescribed to address nutrient needs during pregnancy and to protect against some birth defects.
  • Vitamin and mineral supplements have been shown to improve immune function in adults and the elderly.
  • Adequate nutrient intake helps maintain energy and mental health.
  • Antioxidant supplements have been shown to have a positive impact on eye health and the health of cognitive function in the elderly.
  • Calcium and Vitamin D help build optimum bone mass during childhood and can be useful for bone loss that naturally occurs with aging.

Some prescription drugs can reduce or rid the body of important nutrients by interfering with their absorption, excretion or metabolism. Nutritional supplements play an important role in addressing nutrient deficiencies that may occur over time in response to certain drug therapy regimens.

Why Choose MEDISCA Nutraceuticals?

A major concern for the Nutraceuticals industry is the lack of product quality-control and testing, where heavy metal testing is not compulsory. At MEDISCA, our line offers over 100 Nutraceutical ingredients, with every single lot undergoing ID and heavy metal testing.

Heavy Metals, Why We Test

Heavy metals can readily accumulate in the human body , as they are difficult to metabolize. The toxic effects of most metals are attributed to their ability to bind to vital cellular components, such as structural proteins, enzymes and nucleic acids, disrupting their functions. The main threats to human health from heavy metals are associated with exposure to arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury. Acute heavy metal toxicity has been implicated in impaired mental and central nervous function, as well as damage to cardiovascular and gastrointestinal systems, lungs, kidneys, liver, endocrine glands and bones. Chronic exposure to heavy metals has been associated with several degenerative diseases of these same systems and may increase the risk of some cancers.
