Only the best supplement brands for you
Not all nutritional products are the same. At Williams Integracare we only use pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements, providing you with the optimum nutritional value.
Scientific studies show that most Americans are deficient in many essential nutrients. More than 80 percent of women and 70 percent of men consume less than two-thirds of the recommended daily intake for one or more nutrients. This causes most of us to have nutrition levels below those necessary for optimum health. Our physicians and caregivers scientifically assess your needs and guide you through the best methods to become (and stay) nutritionally fit.
A unique experience
The supplements sold at Williams Integracare are unlike the products you would find at a drug store. Integracare sells the best of the best – as selected by our medical providers. Along with your purchase of supplements you will receive a professional consultation from our staff if you would like.
You can rest assured knowing the supplements sold at Integracare are pharmaceutical grade supplements that receive independent testing.
Natural health remedies
After age 40, more than 50 percent of your health risk is related to lifestyle choices. Most of us think we know the aspects of a healthy lifestyle, but few of us put that knowledge into practice. Together we can help you incorporate positive, enjoyable, and practical lifestyle changes into your routine. We’ve helped patients reduce the risks of devastating health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer, and diabetes. Our lifestyle programs focus on smoking, obesity, and other factors that you have control over that can improve your health. You will find that incorporating Natural Health Remedies plays an important role in your overall health!
