Choosing A Multi-Vitamin You Can Trust - A Surgeon's Guide
Your bones are constantly being remade – old bone is broken down, and new bone is made. As you age, you reach peak bone mass around age 30. Your body will still create new bone, but at a slower rate than it did when you were younger. To combat this, you should consume more calcium-dense foods and supplement if necessary.
Most people are not getting the nutrition they need on a daily basis from their diet which hinders their ability to recover from orthopedic issues or surgical interventions – especially as they age.
There are many multivitamins on the market, but orthopedic surgeon Dr. Meredith Warner wasn’t able to find one formulation that provided all the essential vitamins and minerals she wanted for her patients in one single bottle and with the appropriate dosing needed – especially those who are considering surgery and will need help recovering quickly post-op.
As we age, hormonal changes alter how our bodies process vitamins and minerals from our food, slowing things like calcium absorption, which is an essential part of maintaining bone health. As it becomes more difficult to take in the right amount of vitamins, it becomes more necessary to supplement where needed to maintain your standard of wellness.
Even a decrease in mobility can affect your vitamin intake. Vitamin D, which you can receive from sunlight, plays an important role in calcium absorption. If you go outside less often due to things like joint inflammation, you will receive less Vitamin D – which creates a vicious cycle.
With less exposure to Vitamin D, you will have more difficulty absorbing the right amount of calcium, which will directly affect your musculoskeletal health – further limiting your mobility as you age
And often as we age, our appetites decrease. The best way to efficiently absorb nutrients is naturally, through our diets – but with less food intake, you receive fewer vitamins and minerals. This loss of appetite combined with slower bone replacement – which happens naturally as you age – make supplements that specifically support bone health essential for avoiding fractures and maintaining your quality of life.
When you walk into the pharmacy section of any grocery store, you are presented with a multitude of choices – countless brands offering different multivitamins, and an even greater number of individual vitamins, minerals, and supplements.
Choosing the right multivitamin or supplement regimen isn’t as easy as picking up a bottle or two off the shelf – blending essential nutrients into a single dose is a complicated process.
Absorption effectiveness of certain vitamins depends heavily on what other vitamins you pair with them, and in what dosage size.
For example, taking Vitamin C alongside an Iron supplement can help your body process the iron more efficiently.
Other vitamins, when taken at the same time, either “compete” for absorption or could even cancel each other out.
To further complicate matters, the FDA struggles to regulate supplements. Many multivitamins that make claims about improving things like health, sleep, and overall wellness may be making inaccurate claims.
Needless to say, it can be difficult and time-consuming to research the accuracy of those health claims yourself. This creates a problem for consumers who are uncertain of how to vet their supplement intake. Choosing the right multivitamin for your specific needs is difficult enough as it is, but made more complicated with these factors.
You should seek the advice of a physician before beginning a supplement regimen – chances are, they will be able to direct you to a blend suitable for your particular needs. You also want to look for multivitamins that have been tested in a 3rd party lab and are registered with The FDA to assure the purity and safety of their ingredients.
This way, you will know that the ingredients listed on the bottle are actually in the bottle – and in the indicated amounts. This is especially useful information to have if you are taking other medications and want to make sure your new multivitamin won’t interact negatively with your prescription.

Most multivitamins are filled with vitamins you don’t need, in amounts that are unnecessary, or even in ratios that cancel each other out. At Well Theory, we believe that less is more. Dr. Warner made sure to include only the essential nutrients that she recommends for her orthopedic patients, to provide targeted benefits for your musculoskeletal health.
This unique blend is ideal for surgical patients, but a great option for optimizing your overall health. Surgical candidates are often advised to make lifestyle changes so they’re at peak health before and after their procedures – and this multi is designed to do just that.
At Well Theory, we are dedicated to providing you with a way to improve your overall health and reduce your pain – safely and naturally. We believe in helping you build a better lifestyle, holistically and with the guidance of an orthopedic surgeon’s expertise.
In her years of clinical practice, Dr. Warner has often found that in many cases, natural alternatives to heavy pharmaceuticals and invasive procedures can be just as successful or more successful.
As an orthopedic surgeon, she has to consider the context of the condition she’s treating – how it affects other parts of the musculoskeletal system, and how the treatment will change her patient’s lifestyle. This is why she prefers gentle therapies whenever they can be utilized, because while in many cases they are as effective as mainstream medicine, their impact on the body tends to be less jarring.
With this in mind, Dr. Warner founded Well Theory – and developed our revolutionary new Bone and Joint Multivitamin.
You may begin to feel the health-boosting effects immediately, but consider benefits – like increased energy and improved mood – added bonuses while you’re improving your overall health. Most people begin to feel a difference towards the end of the first month of regular dosage, but the things that are happening inside your body are what counts.
