Better Living is proud to dispense the Vita Aid line of nutritional supplements to our Toronto clientele. For over 20 years Vita Aid has been providing natural health care practitioners with the very best in nutritional supplementation products.
Vita Aid is manufactured in British Columbia by Naturo Aid Pharmaceutical Inc under strict pharmaceutical-grade standards; they have their own product development department, professional in-house formulator and production facility, meaning no step in the process is contracted out and production is precisely controlled from start to finish.
Vita Aid distinguishes themselves by producing formulations that are not solely for prevention but can also be used for patient treatment. Vita Aid also uses a specific encapsulation process which removes the need for any magnesium stearate. Magnesium stearate is a fatty substance (similar to a super-saturated fatty acid) that is not water soluble; it coats every aspect of an ingredient and acts as a lubricant, allowing production to proceed faster and decreasing wear and tear on machinery. A coating of magnesium stearate on the ingredient delays and decreases absorption of the active ingredients in the gastrointestinal tract which leads to poor absorption.
Furthermore, unlike a high capacity, fully automated production line, there are always two people involved in the process who carefully observe for quality control and assurance. The high quality herbal extracts utilized in supplement production are made by U.S. or European companies which have met all standards set by Health Canada for heavy metal, pesticide, solvent and microbial levels.
Vita Aid offers a wide variety of supplements for our patients here in Toronto which range from anti-inflammatory and antioxidant support, bone and joint support, cardiovascular support, cognitive and neural support, detoxification and liver support, digestive and gastrointestinal support, immune support and anti-microbials, sleep and stress management, urinary, kidney and prostate health, blood sugar and weight management, women’s health, vision support and vitamins and minerals. Vita Aid also offers Chinese medicine formulations.
Complementary products are also available through the Vitazan line of supplements available through our Toronto Dispensary. Always be sure to consult with your Naturopathic Doctor or one of our qualified professional staff prior to starting a supplement regimen.
