Proper Nutrition

really depends on a few factors, such as:

the individuals regular diet, condition, location (of the problem), severity (of the issue), their age and weight; as well as medication(s) and/or treatment(s) your healthcare provider prescribes; the current activity level,  exercise routine, and other physical goals... ALL OF THAT can also impact what a body needs, and the proper dosing.

IF you have a serious, pre-existing, or chronic problem, you’ll likely need a bit more to start with… but it honestly depends on the STAGE you're at, and how long you've had the problem; as well as WHAT ALL IS CAUSING the pain, suffering, and discomfort, and WHAT the GOAL IS. Often, the questions are: HOW can the product help, WILL it really help, how much is necessary (to start with), for how long, and can less still help?


The reality is:

No one wants to ‘maintain’ a problem, they want to improve it, help it improve, or at least slow it from getting worse, when possible. However, using a 'maintenance dose’ when there is a serious problem will NOT USUALLY HELP SOLVE MOST PROBLEMS. This is especially true if 'the problem' occurred from injuries, or years of wear!

Our products can help many issues. However, NO ORAL SUPPLEMENT can

  • alter structural abnormalities,
  • remove bone spurs,
  • reattach ligaments torn lose,
  • eliminate scar tissue, or
  • straighten maladjusted healing. 

Surgery is what fixes those things, and ANY COMPANY claiming to 'treat' or 'heal' those type of issues with an oral SUPPLEMENT is clearly not telling the truth!

    Awareness is key

MD's Choice started out on the Human side in 1995; then transitioned certain products to animals in 1998, when VetSupplements.com was officially started.

All our products are manufactured with human quality ingredients, in human manufacturing facilities, to human nutritional standards, under FDA Guidelines, to GRAS Standards (Generally Recognized as Safe), and cGMP certifications (certified Good Manufacturing Practices). That includes our animal products. We do this because we KNOW some people use our animal products for themselves, AND frankly because we want the best, most consistently effective products for our loved ones - whether human or animal. 

Our products are designed to work the RIGHT WAY; without pain killers, masking agents, or herbal symptom blockers!

Yes, our products are ‘Natural’ – NOT JUST TO NATURE, but NATURAL TO A MAMMAL’S BODY! That is another huge difference.

Plus... the ingredients are in forms the body CAN USE, is already looking for, and is ready to process correctly.

Safe and effective. PURE NUTRITION!

OUR Joint Supplement FAQs

Our products CAN ACTUALLY HELP improve and increase the quality of the synovial fluid; providing the basic building blocks necessary to have healthy ligaments and tendons, with improved strength and flexibility, which adds mobility and reduces pain and discomfort over time. 

MD's Choice offers pure, quality NUTRITION… the body CAN ACTUALLY USE!

What does it do?

Supplies key nutrients a body already uses, needs, and is genetically looking for... in forms the body ALREADY KNOWS HOW TO ACTUALLY USE.

Reduced RECOVERY time

CAN REDUCE RECOVERY TIMES when you have an injury, or have to deal with surgery, on those type of more serious things. This is why Orthopedic Surgeon’s often recommend or prescribe our products before, during, and after joint related surgeries.

How?

Our nutritional products supply the body the nutrients it needs, in forms it can actually use, to help expedite the repair and maintenance of the body in a natural and reasonable fashion. 

No HERBS.

No magic or illusions; no quick fixes; no masking agents or pain blockers (use those as needed, when needed, and as your doctor recommends).

Reality is: 

Nutrition is NOT fast acting!

Despite the marketing claims from some companies, you will NOT honestly 'see results' in a few hours, days... or even '7 to 10 days' as some claim. "Healing" takes weeks, and sometimes even surgery or specialized care. That 'quick fix' stuff many can MASK symptoms or PAIN in that short time, and potentially even give the ILLUSION OF HELPING... as the issue continues to really get worse.  With most 'herbal' and 'quick fix' supplements, it's THAT hidden "symptom masking" that allows them to claim "it works."

In Reality: you can ONLY MASK the symptoms, reduce or KILL PAIN for a short time USING DRUGS. Longer effects require actual structural support, healing, and sometimes Surgery (when necessary).

Pain killers have their place, when used responsibly, sparingly, and NOT daily for long periods of time (which enable bodies to actually further the damage, and worsen the situation - because their brain doesn't FEEL 'the warnings' - the "I'm Injured" - "Hey, slow down and let me heal"). Instead, the strained ligament becomes torn; the pitted cartlidge becomes bone on bone, and surgery becomes necessary. 

With MOST companies: 

the quality and consistency of their product(s) is NOT THE SAME from batch to batch, lot to lot, month to month, much less year to year. That isn't the case with MD's Choice.

Science matters to reality, and there really is NO actual "QUICK FIX" that doesn't involve surgery. Killing the pain doesn't address the under lying problem, or REASON PAIN EXISTED to begin with. Irrational pain killing allows the potential for injuries to increase, and damage to further. 

Herbs have their place, but the reality is HERBS ARE plant derived DRUGS designed to mask symptoms, kill or block pain, and give an illusion of a 'quick fix.' Even if herbal, the majority of 'herbs' used in joint supplements are in fact 'plant derived drugs' that don't help fix or heal anything, but rather BLOCK, MASK, and KILL pain... or disrupt symptoms that cause discomfort or other negatives; thereby giving an ILLUSION OF improvement. "IT WORKS" - not because it's healed, helped, or actually improved; but rather because it was masked. You won't see positive structural changes from pain blockers, just a brain that doesn't register 'as much' pain for a time. 

In MD's Choice products, there are NO PAIN KILLERS, masking agents, or symptom blockers! None! No Herbs... because the doctors believe pain should be knowingly controlled, and not irresponsibly masked, hidden, or blocked; for HEALTH & SAFETY REASONS. 

The MD's Choice products are PURE NUTRITION; concentrated, in the most bioavailable forms for the money; designed by doctors that really know their stuff, knowing what the body actually needs, and supplying it in forms it can readily use!

The doctors developed these products specifically to help

  • treat their patients, themselves - their family & friends
  • with a clear understanding of both human and animal health
  • fulfill their patient's nutritional requirements
  • knowing there really wasn't a 'one size fits all' type of dosing, as so many of the companies advertise and claim. 

  • The doctors that formulated and approved products for MD's Choice specifically looked for specific nutrients for the goal they were needing to support and otherwise help solve certain issues.

    They purposefully wanted FLEXIBLE DOSING, that varies based on individual SITUATION, NEED and CONDITION, and other key factors, such as: age, size, severity of the problem, as well as OTHER Therapy & Medication the patient was using. Obviously, one doesn't need a 'high level' dose of something if they are generally healthy, and a body with a recent injury is dealt with differently than one that is older, well worn, and has years (to decades) of tissue damage. The home body will have different needs than the athlete, the blue collar manual laborer differently than the white collar person merely because of the differences in muscle tone, chronic injuries, repetitive wear, and inability to 'take it easy' while the body returns to a more optimum condition. Same is true with dogs, horses, and other mammals... pasture pets are different than barrel racing, jumping, or even dressage horses... and there are canine breeds that are highly active, nearly to literally bouncing off the proverbial walls, to those that lounge around unless they have to step in to threaten or protect their wards. The dosing is different for chihuahua's vs Great Danes!

Nutrition vs Herbal Remedies

Herbs

  • Sadly, all herbs used in supplements are generically classed as 'dietary supplements' by the FDA.

  • However, the reality is the majority used in supplements are merely DRUGS, albeit PLANT DERIVED drugs, but drugs all the same. Most herbs used in supplements are NOT intent on HEALING, but rather MASKING, BLOCKING, and often KILLING PAIN or other symptoms; which can have it's place, but NOT IN A DAILY SUPPLEMENT intended for prolonged use.

  • What these herbs actually do in a body is completely different from NUTRIENTS and NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT. Herbs give an 'illusion' of helping, by reducing or blocking the symptoms (the signs there is a problem, the discomfort or pain) NOT THROUGH HEALING (despite some marketing claims). There is no repair, or actual improvement of anything... other than the temporary relief of the symptom(s)! But hey, the pain is temporarily gone, therefore 'it must work.' Right? NOPE!

  • You can learn much more about herbs at: HerbsAreDrugs.com

Nutrition

  • The key to life! ALL MAMMALS require certain nutrients to live, grow, survive, and maintain any rational sense of the word 'live.'

  • Nutrition is all about eating, getting NUTRIENTS into a body to grow and stay healthy. A healthy body tends to have a balanced diet, of food and drink that provides that individual all the energy and nutrients needed to be 'healthy.'

  • Food eaten provides energy (calories), giving us the strength to move, walk, run, and do things. But most people don't get a 'balanced diet' of the necessary nutrients. Our bodies require protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and water to sustain a healthy life; that's just reality. 

  • Nutrition involves good food choices, wise hydration options, and often the additional SUPPLEMENTATION of key nutrients we aren't able to easily, or consistently get from our normal diet. It's vital that we get certain Vitamins, Minerals, Trace Minerals, Enzymes, Calories, Carbohydrates, Glucose, Electrolytes, and Amino Acids a body requires for sustenance. 

Our
Results Based Guarantee

The professionals that formulated our products considered everything that normally impacts certain areas of the body, and things they’ve actually dealt over the years. They looked at things from a position of ‘What can better solve this problem?’ or ‘Help this body’ – from a trained medical standpoint, on a nutrient level, cellular level; taking bio-availability, absorption rates and minimum digestion speed in to account, as well as the other cost effective regimens available.

RESEARCH

You either NOTICE A DIFFERENCE within 3 bottles, usually enough for 6 to 12+ weeks of a sufficient level dosing for the problem, or you get your money back! We assume you WILL be using as directed, and you’ll call us if the problem is serious, or body isn’t considered ‘average’ for the instructions on the bottle.

ANALYSIS

We want to HELP SOLVE PROBLEMS, and have experienced a high success rate over the years with our focused supplements. Our Results Based Guarantee to exist since 1998, for over 23 years!

PROCESSING

That type of guarantee should be an industry standard, but it’s not… and won’t likely ever be.

Our Approach

ONE

Research

DEFINE the problem: our doctors considered what WAS AVAILABLE... 

TWO

Analysis

Determined both WHY the options available at that time were NOT working, and what DIFFERENT THINGS *MIGHT* WORK (better, and at all). How and Why... 

THREE

Processing Data

Test, Evaluate, Define, Adapt, Improve, Improvise, Over Come, and Test again... UNTIL IT WORKS AS NEEDED, helping solve a problem or deal with targetted issues, to acheive the goal of improving things. 

Laboratory Research

Each of our supplements are made with specific high-quality ingredients, in specific forms, mixed in precise amounts – with specific ratios, and each batch of product is triple tested - the bulk, after blending, then again randomly after bottling. So you get what is on the label, what is necessary… and what YOU PAID FOR, with CONSISTENT: 

  • potency,
  • purity, and
  • ratios and concentrations, of the already highly concentrated nutrients 

  • from batch to batch, from year to year! Quality is something MD’s Choice customers never have to worry about.

    Our minerals are generally Amino Acid Chelates. Amino Acids are the basic building blocks of proteins, and an absolute requirement for healthy bodies. Which makes them more bio-available, more absorbable, more readily used by a mammals body. While every body produces amino acids, and most come initially from food, nearly all mammals (people and animals) benefit from PROPER SUPPLEMENTATION.

    A healthy body absorbs amino acids through the small intestine, where the blood then carries them throughout the body, feeding and helping cells be the healthiest they can be. 

    Chelation is a type of bonding of ions and molecules to other ions (usually either metals or minerals). It involves combining two or more separate ingredients into a single central atom. Chelated minerals are minerals that have been combined chemically, often with amino acids, to form “complexes” that are more readily absorbed in a mammals body.

Our company stands behind our product, because the science is solid, and we have a results based guarantee you can honestly trust! MD’s Choice has had zero complaints with the BBB for over 20 years, and either A+ or 'unrated' (because we don't pay for ratings); something few businesses of any type can brag about, especially businesses in the nutrition or health industries.

Science, especially nutrition, is a vital part of life... living... and longevity. Nothing on this website, or any other, should ever be given more power or authority than your actual doctor: that has seen the body, ran the tests, poked, prodded, x-rayed or ultra-sounded when necessary, thoroughly examined, and genuinely evaluated the history of the patient. Part of the reason the FDA has regulations and requirements, such as “These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease.” is to help protect the consumer from false claims, 'magic cures,' 'miracle claims,' and dangerously avoidable contraindications (side-effects). We understand and agree!

Drugs should have quality control regulations, safety requirements, and that includes all plant derived drugs (herbs) which have their place, but seldom ever in a 'daily supplement, intended for prolonged use.'  Supplements should be tested for all the common contaminants, including heavy metals, which MD's Choice has been doing since the very beginning.

Nutrition is key, good nutrition important, but even the best nutrition doesn't replace the hands on experience of doctors able to evaluate the individual on a case-by-case basis. There are far too many ailments, types of diseases, genetic issues, contributing factors, and medical issues producing side-effects and symptoms for any responsible person - especially a doctor or healthcare related professional - to do more than generalize or suggest some elevated or minimized concern, without in-person testing and a real world exam.

Our products are great, and have had the best Results Based Guarantee in the nutritional industry for over 23 years, which should tell you a whole lot about us and how we do business. WE CARE... If you have a serious concern, or life threatening situation, PLEASE CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR, or a specialist that can see the body, do the tests, and evaluate the individual situation.   Our Privacy Policy
