Opportunities for Nutraceutical Customization


Complimentary to other prescribed treatments or prescriber on its own, the use of nutraceuticals has been shown to contribute to the overall health of an individual. With more and more patients eager to take control of their health through greater awareness, self-treatment, and natural therapies, the demand for nutraceuticals is greater than ever before. Indeed, the use of nutraceuticals has been shown to contribute to positive health outcomes in obstetrics, immunology, neurology, mental health, orthopedics, and cosmetics, among more.

In this webinar, participants will learn about the nutraceutical market, the possible health benefits of nutraceuticals, and the high demand for customized natural supplements and remedies. This activity will provide participants with the tools and knowledge needed to expand their compounding practice with new product offerings that satisfy current prescriber and consumer demands. Moreover, this webinar will address the current concerns within the nutraceutical industry with regard to product quality control and heavy metal testing. Participants will be introduced to product lines that offer high-quality solutions to these growing concerns.

JEFFERY A. JOHNSON, BS Pharm, PharmD, MBA, RPh, ND

Dr. Jeffery A. Johnson is a 30-year veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces, having gained extensive experience in a wide array of pharmaceutical care provision, both from military treatment facilities as well as his early work within community-based and hospital-based ambulatory care. His love for pharmaceutical compounding (both sterile and non-sterile processes) began during his tenure as an undergrad.

His most recent adventures in compounding have been focused upon reviving the appropriate and proper application of well-documented, specialty compounding practices within the area of operations (both hard-structure as well as field-environment techniques for military treatment facilities).

Dr. Johnson received his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from Purdue University’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (1978). He then earned his Doctorate of Pharmacy from the University of Kansas, School of Pharmacy (2003).  Between his BS Pharm and PharmD programs, Dr. Johnson also picked up a PhD in Naturology/Herbal Medicine (1998), becoming a Board Certified Naturopathic doctor (2008). He also bolstered his business savvy by earning an MBA (1995). Throughout his 38-year career as a pharmaceutical care provider, he has continued to strive to hone his compounding skills to a fine edge.
