Top Reasons to Create Your Own Nutrient Formula
Posted on by Margo Gladding
Did you know that at Village Green Apothecary, you can have a custom nutritional formula made specifically for you? Our compounding lab has over 30 years of experience creating customized formulas, which include nutrients (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, and herbs), and specialized prescription medications. And, we also make compounds for pets, too!
We passionately believe that each person deserves their own personalized plan for protecting and optimizing their health. We are committed to helping customers find the best solutions for their unique needs. That is why we carry such a wide selection of high-quality nutritional supplements and offer custom compounding, as well. If we don’t have exactly what you are looking for, we are happy to create it for you in our on-site laboratory.
If you are new to the idea of custom compounding, there are many ways it can benefit your health. For example, creating personalized formulas helps to ensure that you are getting the exact nutrients that you need. In addition, compounding can simplify one’s nutrient protocol, provide targeted support based on specialty lab test results, address specific nutrient deficiencies caused by taking certain medications, such as antacids, birth control pills, and steroids, or allow you to receive a blend of ingredients that may no longer be commercially available.
4 Reasons to Consider Custom Compounding
Everyone is unique and has different nutritional needs. One of the main benefits of custom nutrient compounding is that it allows you to create a tailored combination of nutrients in particular forms and dosages that are best for you. This allows you to get just the nutrients your body needs without excess levels of vitamins and minerals that may not be beneficial for you. And, we can make a formula in a delivery method of your choosing, such as powder, capsule, or liquid.
High Quality Ingredients & Hypoallergenic
The pharmaceutical grade ingredients used in our compounding formulas are rigorously tested to ensure that we provide customers with the highest quality raw materials, free of chemical contaminants. And, our custom formulas do not contain any additives, such as fillers, binders, dyes, preservatives, or possible allergens.
Convenient & Flexible
Our compounding pharmacy has the unique ability to combine the supplements that you are taking. So, rather than purchasing many bottles of different nutrients, we can make one formula that includes all of the nutrients that you need. This can make it more cost-effective and more convenient. And, having a personalized formula can enhance compliance by reducing the number of capsules needed daily and can also encourage consistency.
Enhanced Absorption and Bioavailability
Not all supplements are created equal. Some may not be easily absorbed, which makes it difficult for your body to benefit from them. With custom nutrient compounding, the formula is designed to promote better absorption and bioavailability. By mixing the right ingredients in the right proportions, you can ensure maximum uptake and utilization of the nutrients.
Learn More About Custom Compounding
If you have any questions about custom compounding or would like to have a formula created, we are here to help! Please note, having a custom compound prepared at Village Green requires a script from a healthcare practitioner, such as a doctor or nutritionist. This ensures that the formula is best suited for you. If you would like to learn about custom compounding or have specific questions, our nutritionists offer a free 15-minute introductory phone call. Once you are ready to have a formula created, you can schedule a compounding consultation, where a nutritionist will review your specific needs, address your goals, and formulate your personalized nutrient compound. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
