Question
hello Dr Stacy. I would like to purchase phosphorus 500 mg supplements. but I can't find it. I dont trust hylands or Boiron. where can I find phosphorus 500 mgs?  thanks a lot. Ann.

Answer
Hi Ann,

I am sorry but I am not familiar with any particular website that sells supplements online.  I would make sure that you use a reputable company and check the retailers' online reviews.  Supplements are largely unregulated.  Make sure you know what you are taking and that does not contain any fillers.  Check with your local pharmacist for recommendations.  

Thank you,
-Stacy
