Nutritional Supplements Q & A
What are nutritional supplements?
Nutritional supplements contain a variety of nutrients your body needs to function optimally. Supplements can also lower your risk for certain chronic diseases, including osteoporosis and heart disease. They also support your eye health and metabolism.
Depending on your needs, nutritional supplements may contain one or more of:
- Amino acids
The supplements are available in a variety of forms, including capsules, tablets, and liquids, to make them easy to incorporate into your diet.
Why would I need nutritional supplements?
Ideally, you should get the essential vitamins and minerals you need from your daily diet. However, not everyone is able to absorb these nutrients properly because of existing health conditions or because of a poor diet, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies.
If left untreated, nutritional deficiencies can lead to malnutrition and serious, long-term health issues, including:
- Joint pain
- Skin disorders
- Chronic fatigue
- Digestive disorders
- Irregular bone growth
- Migraines and headaches
The providers at Total Health Primary Care, PLLC, can recommend which nutritional supplements you need to add to your diet to protect your health and lower your risk for chronic disorders.
They offer on-site lab services to identify any nutritional deficiencies you have and determine which supplements are right for you.
