Do you make healthy diet choices but still have nutritional problems? Dietary supplements can help. However, in order to reap the health benefits, you should only take the supplements you truly need. So, the first thing to ask yourself is ‘What supplements should I take.”
At Best Self Medical Arts, we believe that proper nutrition is the key to good health, but we’re also aware that pre-existing medical conditions and other factors can impact overall health. Consequently, we sometimes advise patients to take health supplements to ensure their nutritional needs are met.
What are Health Supplements?
Health supplements are substances that you eat or drink to add nutrients to your diet. They are available in various forms including capsule, liquid, powder, or gel tabs, and may contain vitamins, minerals, herbs, and plant products, fiber, or amino acids. Health supplements are available in different doses and combinations and are designed to enhance healthy living.
Eating a variety of healthy foods is the best way to get the vitamins and minerals your body needs to remain healthy and fight infection and disease. However, if you are not getting the essential nutrients you need from your daily diet, you may experience nutritional deficiencies. Health supplements can, therefore, be taken to improve nutrition.
Metagenics Consultations Available
What is Metagenics?
Metagenics are innovative health supplements that are available only from a registered health practitioner. They are science-based nutritional formulas made from high-quality ingredients. Metagenics products contain micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals, probiotics, flavonoids, anti-oxidants, and omega3-fatty acids.
Metagenics has a wide range of products that provide targeted nutrition to boost immune health and function and support overall health.
When Should We Take Supplements?
Doctors generally recommend taking health supplements if your basic nutritional needs are not being covered by your daily diet. Supplements can also be taken to boost brain health, promote healthy sleep, and improve gut health. A healthy gut is important for overall well-being because it aids digestion, and contributes to a strong immune system.
