My Personal Connection to Cystic Fibrosis
Having been in the industry for over 35 years, most of my time has been directed towards the mainstream pharmaceutical industry and prescription medications, but I have also seen how vitamins and nutritional supplements can significantly help fulfill specific needs for various patients. Multivitamins are vitally important for many people, and especially those who suffer from malabsorption of key vitamins and nutrients in their normal diet.
I discovered this event first-hand when my youngest grandson, Blake, was born with cystic fibrosis. I watched my daughter and son-in-law struggle with the diagnosis and then witnessed my grandson go through various treatments that brought a new appreciation for individuals who have this disease. They endure hardships daily that many of us would never fathom.
Having this personal connection played a big factor in deciding that we should offer patients and their families another avenue to quality vitamins and supplements that conform to Good Manufacturing Principles and ensure quality and potency. In the end, your healthcare provider is the one to consult with and has first say in any treatment, but we hope that providing quality vitamins can help those suffering with this unique need.
