In a nut-shell… what is compounding ?
Many of you may know a bit about compounding and what it’s all about. We are regular pharmacists who have undertaken additional training to formulate and make medications /supplements using raw ingredients … mixing them up into various forms .. creams , capsules , solutions etc .. resembling the old fashioned mortar and pestle style of pharmacy !
We as humans are unique , therefore our needs are medication-wise too.. compounding enables us to create, usually from a Dr’s prescription or over the counter, customised products to meet your needs and optimise your health outcomes.
There are a multitude of areas of health that we can look at …even including veterinary compounding !
