Boca Raton (PRWEB) October 18, 2016
Nutritional supplements are increasingly becoming an integral part of the treatment plan recommendations of many medical practices and other health care providers. Health care providers across specialties, who incorporate nutritional guidance into their practices, frequently recommend supplements for intestinal health, weight loss, cardiovascular health, stress and mood relief, insomnia, joint and inflammation relief and general wellness.
A 2014 article from Nutritional Outlook reports that “between one-half and three-quarters of all adults in the United States report taking dietary supplements. And while nearly half of consumers (48%) purchase their supplements from well-known retail outlets, according to a report published in 2011 by dietary supplement association the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN; Washington, DC), more than half of them (55%) point to their medical doctor or physician as being their number-one most-trusted source of reliable information on dietary supplements.”
For practitioners, this data presents an opportunity as well as a challenge. Lack of experience regarding dosage, ingredient quality and sourcing, brands and formula can decrease one’s confidence about where to start and what to recommend. Many practitioners report that selling supplements out of their offices can be a formidable undertaking. Managing inventory levels, choosing the right products from the best companies, stocking, accounting, sales tax and patient [compliance? retention?] can all be a challenge and can negatively impact a provider’s bottom line. The desire to incorporate lifestyle programs to improve patient wellness and increase practice revenues often turns into a financial burden and a time-consuming, efficiency drain on the practice.
Metabolic Code provides a comprehensive platform which addresses many of these challenges to help practitioners provide high quality personalized nutritional support programs with less hassle and expense. The Metabolic Code supplement formulary is thoroughly researched, clinically proven, and personally selected by Jim LaValle, Founder and Chairman of Metabolic Code.
Jim LaValle, RPh, CCN, was selected as one of nine Americans for the Inaugural Dietary Supplement Education Bureau Board and has extensive experience on product formulation and raw materials.
“To have some of the most preeminent and leading supplement manufacturers partner with us is exciting and will allow the healthcare practitioners using our platform to recommend to their patients, the best products, with the best ingredients to ensure the best possible health outcomes,” says Jim LaValle.
In addition to its leading-edge science with its preventive health assessment capabilities, Metabolic Code also provides a turn-key supplement fulfillment solution which enables clinical practices to sell multiple preferred supplement brands seamlessly to their patients through an auto-order program. Each product shipment includes comprehensive marketing that can be branded for the physician’s practice.
The most dynamic aspect of the Metabolic Code platform is that health care providers can choose from several leading professional brands including Ortho Molecular Products, Designs for Health, NuMedica and Compounded Nutrients (a specialty personalized nutrient company). These companies provide transparency in ingredient quality, manufacturing methods, and final product testing, ensuring that providers are recommending some of the most efficacious medical-grade natural supplements to their patients.
