The majority of adults in the United States take one or more dietary supplements either every day or occasionally. Today’s dietary supplements include vitamins, minerals, herbals and botanicals, amino acids, enzymes, and many other products. Dietary supplements come in a variety of forms: traditional tablets, capsules, and powders, as well as drinks and energy bars. Popular supplements include vitamins D and E; minerals like calcium and iron; herbs such as echinacea and garlic; and specialty products like glucosamine, probiotics, and fish oils.
Dr. Alvarez found that all vitamins on the market today have the main purpose of creating a simple, profitable formula. He worked closely with a reputable manufacturer to find and formulate the best vitamin complex possible, originally for his own personal use. His friends and family asked that he make the vitamins available to them, which eventually led him to offer them for sale at his clinic.
