The Weil Vitamin Advisor is the result of more than a decade of research and development. It combines state-of-the-art nutrition and lifestyle research with sophisticated computer algorithms to create healthy lifestyle plans tailored to your specific needs.

Unlike other online supplement configuration engines, the Weil Vitamin Advisor is optimized for both health and safety from start to finish.

It begins with a selection of supplements containing 162 high quality ingredients. Then, based on your answers to questions within seven "modules," it develops customized supplement and lifestyle plans. The number of possible recommendation configurations is nearly endless, but all are optimized to:

1. Avoid overdosage. If you provide information indicating several reasons that you may require - for example - supplemental calcium, your ultimate recommendation won't give you a calcium overdose. Instead, you'll get a calcium recommendation that's calibrated to keep your dosage level safe and effective.
2. Reduce pharmaceutical interactions. If your responses indicated that you take pharmaceutical drugs, potentially dangerous drug-nutrient interactions are taken into account in the recommendation. Dosages are adjusted appropriately. However, if you are taking any medication, it is important to work with your healthcare provider to ensure you are getting the best possible advice.
3. Optimize effectiveness. Age, gender, environment, diet and other considerations can all impact how much and what kind of supplements and lifestyle tips you need. The Weil Vitamin Advisor considers all of these factors in developing its custom profiles.

"This is a highly sophisticated tool," said Tieraona Low Dog, M.D. "We've expended a great deal of time and effort to create what we believe is by far the most versatile and useful custom vitamin configuration tool on the internet, We're both proud and happy to share it with the world."
