Ensuring Supplement Purity: Not all Supplements are Created Equal

Today on Green Wisdom Health, Dr. Stephen Lewis and Janet Lewis dive deep into the world of supplement quality, unraveling the mysteries behind why some supplements may benefit you more than others and how you can ensure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. We know that even with the best diet, additional support from high-quality supplements can be paramount in achieving optimal health, and supplement quality is critical.

We’re delighted to introduce our guest, Casey Sartori, an expert in manufacturing high-quality supplements. With extensive experience in the industry, Casey brings invaluable insights into the manufacturing practices that ensure the efficacy and safety of the supplements you take every day. From sourcing the finest raw materials to implementing rigorous testing procedures, Casey is here to shed light on what makes some supplements stand head and shoulders above the rest.
