Nutritional Supplements Q & A
What are nutritional supplements?
Nutritional supplements include any vitamin, mineral, enzyme, or herbal product that you take to help improve health. While most people in the United States take nutritional supplements, you may find it difficult to figure out what supplements you should take.
If you think you would benefit from nutritional supplements, Dr. Anderson can help. She is a functional medicine physician who devotes her practice to helping you improve your health by investigating how your lifestyle, environment, and diet affect gene expression and health.
What is Metagenics?
Metagenics® is a line of medical-grade supplements that Dr. Anderson offers at her practice. These specially designed supplements work by altering your genetic expression to improve health. The line of supplements includes specially formulated vitamins, minerals, and herbal products to improve health and treat certain health concerns, including:
- Multivitamins for women, men, and children
- Stress management formulations
- Nutrients to support gastrointestinal health
Metagenics also provides supplements that support the keto diet and lifestyle. Dr. Anderson is an expert in the keto diet and uses it to help her patients lose weight and manage chronic conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
The line also includes medical-grade detox supplements, enzymes, and omega-3 fatty acid supplements. All of the supplements offered by Metagenics are gluten-free, non-GMO, and vegetarian.
How do I know what nutritional supplements I need?
Dr. Anderson takes a holistic approach to care and spends needed time listening to your health concerns and symptoms to find the root cause of your health issue so she can develop the most appropriate treatment plan.
If she suspects that a nutritional deficiency is the underlying cause of your symptoms, she offers vitamin deficiency testing to assess your levels. She then uses the information gathered from your examination and testing to create a nutritional supplement plan to improve your overall health.
Nutritional health plays a significant role in how your body functions. While you may choose healthy foods, your body may not get all the nutrients it needs to optimize your health. To learn more about how nutritional supplements can help you, call The Art of Health today to book an appointment.
