The Clinician's Choice brand was founded in 1999 to make supplements that are safe and consistent with scientific developments in the field of nutrition. It is impossible for any one person to keep up with the abundant influx of nutritional information and knowledge discovery on the human body – especially if they do not have constant access to credible information and possess the medical expertise to understand its implications.
Clinician's Choice™ nutritionists, scientists, and medical doctors are the cornerstone of our company's knowledge base that distinguishes between real science and fad remedies. Like you, we have made a lifelong commitment to nutrition. Our medical and nutrition specialists are available to help you before and after you try our products - addressing dietary needs for both males and females through the different stages of life – and constantly improving the following four main aspects of making premium nutraceuticals: Ingredients, Formulation, Manufacturing and Testing:
Most ingredients found in domestic supplements originate outside of the USA, with little knowledge on the composition of the lands used to grow them. As a result, it is not surprising to find unsafe levels of contaminants such as Arsenic, Lead, Mercury and even radioactive material such as Uranium.
At Clinician's Choice, we believe premium supplements start by sourcing the finest ingredients and using safe water-based coatings (not solvents). Domestic suppliers provide the majority of our ingredients, along with their Certificate of Authenticity. Vitamins used in our products must meet USP (United States Pharmacopoeia) standards, while Minerals used are limited to USP, NF, or FCC standards. In addition, all vitamins and minerals must pass rigid testing requirements regarding potency, micro and physical characteristics.
Nutritional science is dynamic and constantly evolving, while most supplement brands remain static and unchanged. Knowledge is required on how much the body can metabolize of a particular vitamin, mineral or herb at any one time, and dangers can exist with products that contain excessive amounts of vitamins, for example A, C and E. It is estimated that over 80% of adults are taking the wrong dosages in improper combinations as part of fad remedies or diets.
Essentially calorie-free, Clinician's Choice supplements are safely formulated to be taken together, based on age, gender and health objectives. Each product is continuously updated by our Scientific Advisory Board consisting of accomplished medical doctors, PhD nutritionists and specialists, including but not limited to, Cardiologists, Neurologists, Orthopedists and OBGYN's. We stay current and adjust our products according to the fast-paced and complex world of evidence-based nutritional science...so you don't have to.
With limited industry regulation, almost anyone can make and sell supplements. Not all products are manufactured properly...in a way that gives your body the best chance to absorb them and receive their promised nutritional benefits.
Clinician's Choice supplements are manufactured in facilities licensed and inspected by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with a two-year guaranteed shelf life. This ensures that our products are made to the highest quality possible, while guaranteeing USP dissolution standards (35-45 minutes after ingestion). Quality control performs in-process testing for consistency (weighing tablets every 10 minutes to make sure they are all the same), uniformity prior to manufacturing (blending tablets well), hardness, friability, bioavailability and potency.
Most consumers believe that the ingredients listed on a supplement product label are present in every bottle and in every tablet. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Furthermore, contaminants can consolidate and be found at unsafe levels in finished products. Testing for what is (and what is not) supposed to be in supplements is not mandatory and a costly practice.
In addition to its rigorous Ingredient selection, Formulation and Manufacturing process, Clinician's Choice supplements are batch tested to confirm that our customers are getting the ingredients they are paying for, in every bottle and in each tablet. Equally important, our products are separately tested to make sure unsafe levels of contaminants haven't somehow found themselves in our products. We don't have to perform these tests, but we do it anyways, for the pride in offering the finest quality supplements available.
