You have but one body - nourish it with the best of ingredients.

How many times have you heard a news report revealing that a shocking percentage of products tested for quality standards were found to contain only a fraction of the ingredient potency claimed on the bottle? Or read a news story about a supplement found to be contaminated with heavy metals or adulterated with cheap materials? Or just picked up your daily multivitamin bottle only to realize it was manufactured in a country where cleanliness, production standards, and shipping regulations are suspect at best?

The Food and Drug Administration is supposed to regulate dietary supplement quality, safety, and labeling, while the Federal Trade Commission monitors advertisements and marketing; still, vast enforcement challenges remain, and optimal governmental oversight has not been achieved. Meaning the composition and quality of ingredients cannot be reliably ensured.

In fact, according to a 2015 study by the Office of Public Health Studies, “supplements need not be evaluated for efficacy, and only limited data on safety are required…” and “supplements may theoretically be marketed at any concentration, as long as the daily recommended value, if available, is specified on the label.”

Now more than ever, taking quality vitamins and supplements is critical to building your health and maintaining a strong immune system. And you should know what is inside each capsule you swallow.

For over 20 years, Dr. Rohde has been personally evaluating and reformulating supplements with American manufacturers who use the highest quality raw ingredients for their formulations, rely on stringent clinical trials for effective composition, and can demonstrate standardized dosage levels for each of their products. He is relentless in his pursuit of high-quality vitamins and supplements to ensure his patients see RESULTS!

So, what does that mean for you? Unlike drugstore brands, all supplements available for purchase at Renew Total Body Wellness Center provide the highest quality ingredients and accurate dosages in every bottle. Our goal has always been to create and provide the highest quality medical-grade vitamins and supplements at a fair price.

The Science and Service of Quality Nutritional Supplements

The supplement creation process begins with 2 critical specifications: the formulation of ingredients (the “recipe” as it were), and the form or source of each ingredient (think olive oil, vs. extra virgin olive oil). After all, there can be tremendous variation in two ingredients from different sources, both called “Vitamin C.” At Renew, we work with product manufacturers that hold themselves to the highest standards of raw ingredient quality and practice rigorous testing for quality and purity.

Domestic Sources – Made in the USA

We are proud that our Renew supplements are manufactured in facilities right here in the United States. These facilities are strictly controlled by rigorous standards that meet Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), and routinely pass FDA and third-party audits. Extensive testing on every product means you can trust the consistency, purity, strength, identity, and composition of each supplement purchased from Renew.

Product Potency

Of course, even if you have selected evidence-based ingredients and provided them in a superior form, the formulation will not work if the dosages are too small. That’s why Renew supplements always include the right therapeutic dosing of each ingredient based on established research. This approach is what separates good supplements from great supplements – formulas that truly help our patients get better faster.

Product Quality Assurance

Renew supplements are created following rigid Standard Operating Procedures through every step of their production. Nothing is left to chance.

All the incoming raw materials are tested in a state-of-the-art laboratory for identity, purity, and composition. The materials are combined in the highest-level clean laboratories following strict protocols. The finished products are tested again for identity, composition, and purity to ensure that no contaminants have been introduced during production.

Are you detecting a theme? The entire production process – from formulation, to sourcing, to manufacturing, to laboratory testing of incoming materials and finished products, to bottling and labeling – is controlled to ensure high quality supplements are produced.

A Focus on Quality

What does all this mean to you, the consumer? When taking Renew supplements, you never have to worry about the quality of your nutritional supplements. All you need to do is follow your doctor’s prescribed health protocols and see RESULTS!

When I hear patients say they are taking XYZ Vitamin and did not feel that it made a difference, I always ask who made that vitamin? Where did you buy it? What dosage were you taking? Those answers really matter when you are talking about getting healthy, maintaining your immunity, and getting the results you want. If you are still buying low-grade drugstore vitamins that are probably sourced and manufactured in China, please stop wasting your money and risking your health!

At Renew, our goal is to educate our patients on how to maintain their health so they can feel great and live their best lives. High quality nutritional supplements create lasting, healthy results that you can count on.

So here’s to your health!

Be well,
Doc Rohde
