In this episode we discuss herbal supplements and why and How to choose quality products, including what to look for on the labels as well as some of the shady and unethical practices currently being employed in the industry.

Additionally, we chat about our clinical nutrition degrees and the transition from student clinician to a real-world practitioner, including what it means to be a good coach and how our view of nutrition has changed over the years.

Lastly, because Brianna travels so frequently to lecture, I thought it would be helpful for her to drop some clinical pearls on travel nutrition and supplementation recommendations which I’m confident you’ll find helpful.
