Taking a nutritional supplement is part of the daily routine for millions of people. And for women who are trying to conceive or who are currently pregnant, a prenatal vitamin is a must. However, with dozens of over-the-counter and prescription nutritional supplements available, determining which one is best when you are trying to get pregnant, and then which is best once you are pregnant can seem like a daunting process. At Shady Grove Fertility, we advise selecting based on an ingredient comparison, safety and quality certifications, and price.
Shady Grove Fertility is proud to announce its partnership with Theralogix. Theralogix, a nutritional science company headed by Mark Ratner, M.D., has proven to share many of the same values as Shady Grove Fertility when it comes to caring for patients.
“Our primary goal is to help our patients build their families safely and effectively,” states Shady Grove Fertility’s Medical Director, Eric A. Widra, M.D. “Getting the right nutritional components whether you are trying to conceive or are currently pregnant is very important. Theralogix has developed safe, effective, evidence-based nutritional supplements designed specifically for the needs of women and men who are trying to conceive and throughout pregnancy,” adds Widra.
Shady Grove Fertility Partners with Theralogix
Launched in 2002, Theralogix originated from a group of healthcare providers who collaborated with prominent academic physicians and scientists to develop nutritional supplements that they trusted and could recommend to their patients. These supplements support a variety of conditions, with a significant focus on female and male fertility. Specifically, they aim to:
- Support preconception health
- Reduce the effects of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) on conception
- Promote normal sperm function and motility
- Provide prenatal nutritional support
“This collaboration in patient care offers our patients access to vitamins that are formulated based on sound medical research and that provide exactly what their body needs based on their unique situation,” explains Dr. Widra.
Physician-Led Medical Advisory Board and High Value on Evidence-Based Medicine
One of the major differentiators between Theralogix and other supplement brands is the physician-led medical advisory board. The Board is comprised of specialists in their respective fields of fertility, urology, and men’s health. They come from esteemed academic medical centers, such as Weill Medical College of Cornell University, Duke University School of Medicine, Georgetown University School of Medicine, and other leading centers. The formulation of each product Theralogix offers has been approved by the Medical Advisory Board after a detailed review of exhaustive scientific data.
Evidence-based medicine has always guided the medical recommendations made by SGF physicians. Similarly, Theralogix’s nutritional supplements are based on scientific evidence. The Board regularly discusses the most recently published research, and then reviews the formulations of all existing products to direct the development of new products.
Lab Certified Nutritional Supplement
Theralogix supplements undergo more rigorous testing than the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations require. All Theralogix supplements are manufactured in an NSF GMP-registered facility and have received an NSF nutritional supplement certification for product content accuracy, and purity by NSF International.
NSF International® is a not-for-profit organization that is the world leader in standards development, product certification, education, and risk management for public health and safety. The NSF seal guarantees that each Theralogix supplement contains exactly what is stated on its label, that there are no contaminants or other ingredients that are not listed on the label, and current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) established by the FDA have been met during the production of the product.
Affordable Nutritional Supplement
Many consumers think the more they pay for nutritional supplement the higher the quality is. In the vitamin world this is most often seen when comparing a prescription vitamin you get from a pharmacy to an over-the-counter option. Since Theralogix products are not sold in traditional stores the marketing and sales expenditures are a fraction of what other suppliers pay, decreasing the out-of-pocket cost for patients. SGF partnership with Theralogix means you will get all the benefits of a quality-certified, premium formulation, at substantial savings compared to your co-pay or what you would pay for a comparable over-the-counter.
