Every day at Pharmaca, our health care practitioners recommend remedies for customers from all walks of life. But what do they take home with them? We asked Jami Sheth, pharmacist at our Pacific Palisades location, for her must-have Pharmaca products.
Metagenics Omegagenics EPA-DHA 720
“Omega-3 fatty acids are one of the most researched nutritional supplements on the market right now. The list of benefits are extensive. The reason I take 4 capsules of these daily is to help reduce inflammation and to optimize memory, learning and cognitive function.”
Pure Encapsulations B12 liquid 1000 mcg
“B12 deficiency is overwhelmingly common especially amongst vegetarians and vegans. My last blood work showed I was deficient, so I started supplementing with a liquid form that I could keep in my purse. This methylated formulation is the active form of B12, which assists the liver in removing toxins from the body and is the perfect antidote to low energy and lack of mental clarity.”
Designs for Health Vitamin D Supreme
"Most people are deficient, and despite living in southern California, my latest blood work showed I was, too. Vitamin D regulates thousands of genes in our bodies. I use it to keep my immune system at peak and my mood high. What I love about this formulation is that it is blended with vitamin K2 which provides a synergistic balance that enhances bone health and prevents overdose of vitamin D.
Thorne Research CystePlus
“Once inside the body, it is converted into glutathione (also known as “the master antioxidant”). It’s responsible for helping the liver remove toxins as well as recycling other antioxidants. I use it to lift brain fog or to break down mucus when I have a cold.”
jane iredale PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation
“My favorite compact powder! Makeup from jane iredale is beloved for their lack of irritating chemicals. This foundation provides a natural finish with built-in SPF protection and does not clog my pores.”
SpaRitual Nail Lacquer in In The Buff
“Nude nails are the current rage and create the perfect clean esthetic for both work and evening wear. These lacquers are formulated without DBP, toluene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and are 100% vegan. They have all the benefits of a professional-grade lacquer without the toxic components of standard polishes!”
