Julie Certified

Dr. Flynn does not certify just any old supplement on the market. There are certain standards the supplements must meet in order to get her stamp of approval. If she would not take it herself and/or recommend it to a family member, and if the following criteria are not met, as seen below, then you will not find the Julie-Certified label next to the product.

Remember, not all supplements are created the same. In order for a supplement to get the Julie-Certified label, it must meet the following criteria. Click on each category to learn more…
