Did you know that just taking a single vitamin could possibly do worse for you than good? Becoming too focused on one type of vitamin or nutrient can have you overlooking some important stuff. Some people think, for example, if they are feeling tired, that they can simply take iron or vitamin B12 to build energy. That is not always the case. Did you know for optimal health that your body requires, in proportion, a certain amount of vitamins and minerals? This condition (the nutrients being in proportion and working together) is synergy, and there’s a way to tell if you’re lacking — and what you’re lacking — when it comes to synergy.
A blood test called micronutrient testing, done on your white blood cells, can give detailed insight on what nutrient(s) your body is deficient in. Too much or too little of each nutrient could lead to low energy levels, allergies, migraines, arthritis, chronic fatigue, depression, and more. Taking the guesswork out of the equation, a micronutrient test will allow your doctor to determine what actions to take in correcting these issues. You can have this test done at Alternative Health Clinic of Myrtle Beach.
The Foods We Eat
Because the foods we eat contain the nutrients we need, we should learn to consume them in correct proportions. Fore example, our bodies need vitamin C, which are found in fruit and green veggies, to absorb iron that is found in meats, fish, beans, and some leafy veggies. Being low or deficient in iron may not necessarily mean you should go out and buy an iron supplement. It may very well mean that you eat a lot of meat, so you need to eat a lot more fruit and green veggies to absorb more iron. On the other hand, it may be an indication that you just need to eat less meat. A doctor who specializes in this test can guide you in the right direction. Dr. Jin Li Dong at Alternative Health Clinic of Myrtle Beach can provide this help to you. Her office number is (843) 692-9243
When They Do Harm
Getting too much of one or more nutrients can potentially cause problems. According to WebMD, scientists are not sure yet if routinely getting a little bit too much of a vitamin or mineral can be harmful as opposed to getting mega-doses, which “are” harmful. Depending on the nutrient(s) abroad though, going over in small doses, can show subtle signs of difficulty sleeping or concentrating, nerve problems such as numbness or tingling, or feeling more irritable.
After testing and getting you back on track, your doctor may advise an all-in-one dietary supplement or multivitamin such as intraMax. It has 71 organically bound trace minerals, vitamins, macro-minerals, herbs, antioxidants, digestive enzymes, essential fatty acids, and more. The focused goal is nutritional synergy. Eating the proper proportions of foods and utilizing all-in-one supplementations can accomplish this.
Order intraMAX. (843) 692-9243
Three Nutrients You Should Watch
As crucial as it is that we intake all essential vitamins and minerals for good health, it is equally crucial that we intake these nutrients from a synergistic approach. Being deficient in one area does not necessarily mean that we should be supplementing that nutrient. It could as well mean that the nutrient needs another to assist the body in absorbing the deficient nutrient. Because too little or too much consumption of any specific vitamin can do you harm, it is wise to have a specialist give you a micronutrient test and began watching your daily IU consumption.
