Top 10 Brands on Fullscript
A question that we get asked often by practitioners is “What are other practitioners recommending for their patients?”
Though this list might not come as a surprise to you, it might still be interesting to see how the different brands rank in terms of number of products sold. It is not a coincidence that all of the listed brands have received the Gold standard under the Emerson Quality Program℠ (EQP). And if you missed it, checkout Dr. Warren Brown’s article on Product Quality: 3 Things You Need to Know. Also be sure to check out our Top 10 Products.
Something else to note is that because Thorne Research was only recently made available for Fullscript, it is not part of the list yet. However, we don’t doubt it will make its debut soon!
