Our food is currently nutrient depleted and supplementation in combination with a well-balanced food program is essential for optimal wellness. The majority of vitamins consumers purchase are unregulated or from local vitamin shops filled with unhealthy ingredients including fillers, coloring, and sugars.
There is increased concern regarding the quality of supplements from these types of suppliers. Consumers question the quality as well as the active ingredients in these products. It is questionable who is regulating these manufacturers and the uncertainty of the ingredients listed on the label.
Vitamins that are lower priced result due to dilution of ingredients within the products and removal of key ingredients impact optimal wellness. These products are inconsistent in their ingredients and approximately 10% of active ingredients are included that are necessary for vibrant health.
WOW Wellness Center recommends supplements that are physician-formulated and maintain the purity and quality of the ingredients. Pharmaceutical-grade supplements are required to meet certain standards, which includes the product must contain 99% purity with no binders, fillers, dyes, or other unknown substances.

Studies demonstrate a multivitamin can help us meet our goals of more energy, improved brain function, stress management or all of the above. A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial gave 215 middle-aged males either a multivitamin containing a high amount of B-complex vitamin or a placebo. Researchers found significant improvements in stress, mental health, brain function, and physical vigor among the group taking a multivitamin.
Another randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial conducted in 50 middle-aged men, found that compared with placebo, a multivitamin/mineral/herbal supplement improved alertness and significantly reduced mood imbalances such as anxiety and stress, while supporting overall well-being.
One question many patients ask, "How long will it take to feel better?" One randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial study with 58 healthy adults aged 18 – 40 found taking a multivitamin/mineral for four weeks significantly improved mood as compared to placebo.
Consistent stress in your life can deplete B vitamins and research demonstrated taking a multivitamin can impact stress-related symptoms. One 16-week study among 138 healthy young adults taking a multivitamin with high levels of B-vitamins had significantly reduced stress, physical fatigue, and anxiety levels compared with the placebo group.
