Isn’t My Diet Good Enough?
Supplements are often overlooked until we realize that our diets may not be providing us with all the necessary nutrients. While a well-balanced diet is essential, it’s important to acknowledge that our food may not be as nutritionally dense as we assume. Studies have shown that over farming has led to less nutrient-rich soil, resulting in crops with lower nutritional value. Additionally, unless we consciously choose grass-fed and hormone-free meats, we may be compromising our own health.
How Supplements Can Help
Don’t worry, there are ways to improve our diets and ensure we meet our nutritional needs. Dietary supplements can complement our overall diet. They act as backups to ensure we receive vital vitamins and nutrients that might be lacking. For example, many people struggle to obtain enough iron, magnesium, and vitamin D through diet alone.
While it may be tempting to grab a bottle of multivitamins from the grocery store, there are a few things to consider. Firstly, you may not need all the vitamins and minerals provided by a multivitamin, potentially leading to overcompensation. Secondly, off-the-shelf vitamins may not be of the highest quality. Nutritionists and supplement experts often mention that regular multivitamins are more likely to end up in your toilet than in your bloodstream.
What Are The Best Supplements to Take?
To determine which supplements are right for you, consider getting a full panel blood test and professional consultation like the ones available at Dragonfly MedSpa and Hormone Wellness. With this information, you can make informed decisions about the supplements you should take and which ones you might not need. Additionally, it’s crucial to choose high-quality supplements to ensure value for your money and enhance your wellness.
We recommend consulting a compounding pharmacy for the highest quality supplements. Compounding pharmacies create custom medications tailored to individual patients by combining base ingredients. Instead of providing a generic formula, they offer personalized solutions.
At Dragonfly MedSpa and Hormone Wellness, we collaborate with trusted compounding pharmacies that have their products independently tested like Farmakeio, Nutrascriptives and MedQuest to prescribe specific combinations of supplements that match our patients’ specific needs.
