Nutritional Supplements Q&A

 

What are nutritional supplements?

The human body needs a range of nutrients to thrive. Mere survival is possible with suboptimal nutrient levels, but there is a price to be paid. In some cases, that price is a weak or ineffective immune system. For others, it’s weight gain, obesity, and a host of serious chronic health problems. 

Because the human body does not produce the nutrients it needs to thrive, things like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes must be obtained through food sources. However, even men and women who have excellent dietary habits can still fall short when it comes to nutrients. 

Nutritional supplementation delivers high-quality micronutrients to your system. It’s a great way to augment a healthy diet, and can dramatically improve your daily quality of life. 

What is sports nutrition? 

If you engage in athletics, fitness pursuits, or other high-intensity physical activities, your body needs even more energy and nutrients than a less active person of your same sex and age. You lose a significant volume of nutrients during the metabolic process, and those nutrients need to be replaced as soon as possible. 

Eating a healthy and varied diet is an essential part of good nutrition, but it isn’t usually enough to fulfill your total micronutrient needs. That’s where nutritional supplementation comes into play. Adding high-quality supplements into your health program gives your body what it needs to thrive. 

Nutritional supplementation can enhance your performance. It also plays a vital role in recovery, helping your body renew itself and repair any damage. 

How do I know where to begin with nutritional supplementation? 

Part of the reason so many people avoid nutritional supplementation is the vast array of confusing and often conflicting information available from multiple sources. Supplementation is a billion-dollar industry, and there’s no shortage of companies who strive to sell you miracle cures in a bottle. 

The best way to incorporate nutritional supplementation into your overall health optimization plan is to work with a skilled physician who understands the role that supplementation plays in health and wellness. Dr. Bryant begins with a comprehensive health evaluation, including blood work to determine your current nutrient levels.

He creates a customized health plan to give your body the proper nutritional support. A great deal of research goes into choosing the best supplements on the market, so you can rest assured your products are top quality. 

There are supplements that come in pill form, and others that are obtained through shakes or even injections. Dr. Bryant will provide all the details you need to make an informed decision about your supplementation plan.
