The Importance of Nutritional Supplements

The Importance of Nutritional Supplements

You probably recognize the importance of a healthy and well-balanced diet. But it isn’t always easy to buy and prepare fresh and healthy meals every day. Plus, everyone has different micronutrient needs based on gender, physical activity, eating habits, age, state of health, and medication.

Nutritional supplements enhance your regular diet to ensure a healthy supply of nutrients. They contain vitamins and minerals that help you feel better, look better, and even sleep better. 

Nutritional imbalances can cause symptoms you didn't even realize were because of a vitamin or mineral deficiency. 

At Balance Hormone Center in Norman, Oklahoma, Gordon Hart, PA-C, and our specialized wellness team offer clinical-grade nutritional supplements, so you can start feeling your best.

Do I have a nutritional deficiency?

A nutrient deficit can have serious health consequences, affecting your daily life and overall well-being. Some signs of a nutritional imbalance include:

If you have a busy, chaotic life, you probably wish you could get more sleep, stay more hydrated, or eat your daily quota of fruits and veggies. Unfortunately, most people don’t have the time or energy to keep track of proper nutrition every day. 

We understand the struggle to maintain health, so we offer nutritional supplements to help.

Reasons for taking nutritional supplements

No matter how healthy and balanced your diet is, you could experience nutritional deficiency. Supplements help you get all the nutrients you need, from vitamin A to zinc.

Close nutritional gaps

Eating proper amounts of essential vitamins and minerals plays a role in the long-term health of your immune system, bones, joints, and heart. According to one study, at least 31% of Americans are deficient in at least one vitamin. 

Nutritional supplements close any dietary gaps to maintain or enhance the nutrient density in your body.

Regulate nutrient absorption

Malabsorption occurs when your body doesn’t take in enough nutrients from your food. For example, patients with lactose intolerance, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, or cystic fibrosis have a more challenging time absorbing all the vitamins and minerals required for overall health.

Taking antibiotics or using laxatives for a prolonged period can also result in nutrient malabsorption. Nutritional supplements prevent the loss of essential vitamins and minerals.

Avoid costly health problems

At Balance Hormone Center, we specialize in treating nutritional imbalances to prevent future health problems. We use a holistic approach to create the best treatment plan for you, helping you avoid costly or dangerous health conditions.

A weekly intravenous (IV) therapy session quickly boosts your nutrient levels without requiring digestion. Vitamins and minerals administered through IV therapy can resolve symptoms rapidly because they're absorbed directly into your bloodstream.

You may also need over-the-counter clinical-grade dietary supplements. We can help you choose nutritional supplements tailored to your specific needs.
