How do supplements work with nutrition?

By learning what nutrients you are deficient in due to the medications you may be taking. A combination of nutrient dense foods and supplements will help replenish what's been lost. For example, one of the most common depleted nutrients is CoQ10 from statin drugs. The very nutrient needed for heart health is being depleted by a touted "heart health" drug. We recognize that supplementation is not a substitute for wholesome, nutritious foods but that it may be helpful in recommended form, dose and frequency.
