Four Pillars: Affordable, Quality Nutrition


There are many times that even though we want the best for our patients and want to supply them with quality nutrients from whole foods and herb supplementation, they feel the need to cut corners. Off to the internet—or worse, Wal-Mart—they sometimes go, to purchase low-quality, lower-priced supplements—until now.

Before patients buy cheap supplements to fill in nutritional gaps or round out their daily vitamin regimen, it may be in their best interests to discuss with you the many benefits of Four Pillars from Pharmax. A few of our physician practitioners have recently called Four Pillars the “Wal-Mart supplement buster” since it packs so much value for the price.

Four Pillars includes the 4 major foundations of nutrition that researchers agree are required on a daily basis—vitamins and minerals, broad-spectrum antioxidants, probiotics and omega-3 essential fatty acids—in a convenient, portable strip that makes it easier than ever for patients to get all of the essentials at once.

Pillar #1: Vitamins and Minerals

This broad-spectrum multi-vitamin and mineral tablet includes 31 vitamins and minerals that provide a great foundational supplement for active adults.

Pillar # 2: Essential Fatty Acids

Pharmax and its sister company Genestra are the only sources on the market for non-heat-treated, non-chemically-treated, EPA/DHA-concentrated fish oils. Fish oils support cardiovascular health by altering lipid metabolism, inducing haemodynamic changes, decreasing arrhythmias, modulating platelet function, improving endothelial function, and inhibiting inflammatory pathways. EFAs also help support brain health in adults and children, and research shows that they have been linked to decreased rates of major depression.

Pillar #3: Plant-Sourced Antioxidants

This tablet contains a full spectrum of antioxidants to help fight free-radical damage every day, including Vitamins A, C, and E, and other important antioxidants for general health, such as Alpha Lipoic Acid, CoQ10 and polyphenols. Polyphenols are naturally occurring compounds found primarily in fruits, vegetables, cereals and beverages. Fruits like grapes, apples, pears, cherries and berries contain up to 200–300 mg of polyphenols per 100 grams. Epidemiological studies have repeatedly shown an inverse association between the risk of chronic human diseases and the consumption of a polyphenol-rich diet.

Pillar: #4: Probiotics

Pharmax boasts the most-researched and clinically proven human-strains of probiotics available today. Pharmax has carefully chosen the top 4 human-strain probiotics from more than 600 possible human strains to make up its proprietary HLC Consortium. Human-strain probiotics lead the pack in efficacy because of their acid and bile resistance, and superior adherence capabilities. The probiotic capsule contained in the Four Pillars is a great daily maintenance dose.


With a retail price of $57.60 for 30 strips, that’s less than $2 a day for four incredibly high-quality daily supplements to help fulfill any patient’s nutritional needs. In fact, it would cost more than $100 to purchase those products separately! The Four Pillars is also available without Copper, Nickel or Iron.
