One of the most challenging aspects of the current pandemic and its restrictions on in-office care has been a loss of safe avenues for finding and buying supplements. Experts agree that while a healthy diet full of whole foods is the best source for your health needs, many people find that they need to supplement their diet with vitamins and minerals that support their unique health challenges. Most patients are aware that shopping for supplements online can be quite a gamble, and that the best option is to purchase supplements directly from their health care providers – but right now, making a trip to replenish your supplement supply isn’t an option for many. What can you do to stay safe and get the supplements you need to stay healthy?
Many people turn to Amazon or other online resale options in order to get the supplements they need. However, this comes with inherent risks, such as: counterfeit products, expired products, and stolen products. Amazon has implemented practices to help curb the proliferation of counterfeits, but as supplements represent a lucrative market, it is a safe bet that at least some expired or counterfeit products are going to escape notice. Smaller, less well-known resale outlets are likely to have similar issues, but without the resources to curb fraud.
To safeguard the health and safety of our patients, Olivera Health + Wellness is partnered with FullScript, an online dispensary that offers online shopping convenience while minimizing the risks associated with buying supplements online. Our patients often buy recommended supplements in person at the time of their appointment, but don’t want to have to make a separate trip just to come back and get a refill. We are doing our part to ensure that you have safe and convenient access to quality supplements suited to your unique health needs. FullScript ensures that all purchases are shipped from verified manufacturers, which have their own product quality verification processes to guarantee that products are genuine and well within their safe usage date. When you purchase from FullScript, you can rest assured that your supplements have come straight from the manufacturer, with no possibility of counterfeit or stolen products. While it takes a few extra steps to get to our FullScript online store, we believe it is worth the extra steps to ensure your health and safety. To get started, look through our Vitamins + Supplements page to see our recommended products, then click on the FullScript logo at the bottom of the page. You will be prompted to enter your email address for approval. One you have confirmed access, you will be able to log in and shop from our entire FullScript catalog at any time of day or night, and get the right supplements delivered safely and securely to your door.
The pandemic has had a tremendous impact on the health and lifestyle of people worldwide, but we pride ourselves on helping you achieve your healthy living goals no matter the obstacle. We encourage our patients to stay active, stay safe, and stock up on supplements through the safest online dispensary available. We take your health seriously, and we hope you will too.
