Supplements

You are at high risk for many deseases  if you have suboptimal levels of:

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Essential Fatty Acids
  • Antioxidants
  • Amino Acids

 Research over the last 60 years has shown that by taking simple nutrients, you may:

  • Be able to perform better at any age
  • Add healthy years to your life
  • Promote weight loss
  • Lessen your chances for developing degenerative diseases

For example, 75% of breast and colon cancer deaths could be prevented thanks to vitamin D.

Unfortunately most doctors, nutritionists, and personal trainers underestimate the importance of supplements

No wonder.  Doctors receive only a few hours of training in medical school, and lack adequate time to keep up with new research.

 It will take years before supplements and nutrition are a part of most doctors training.              

Anti-oxidants slow down the aging process because they neutralize free radicals before they can attack:

  • Cell membranes
  • Mitochondria 
  • DNA           

Some supplements can also help for:

  •  Healthy blood sugar levels
  • Prostate
  • Cardiac muscle
  • Weight loss
  • Muscle gain
  • Metabolism
  • Sleeping
  • Bowel movements
  • Detoxifying
  • etc.

WARNING!

With so many nutritional recommendation, how do you know which ones are right for you?  In my 8 principles for healthy aging  we can:

  • Evaluate your overall nutritional status
  • Measure your functional need for vitamins and minerals
  • Personalize your supplementation

Many American people take vitamins and supplements to feel better and prevent diseases. While this practise can be beneficial, many variables exist.

It is important to understand which supplements are right for your body and your lifestyle.

Taking suppements you do not need can be unnecessary and even harmful.

In my 8 principles, you have access to a personalized nutrional testing, performed by an integrative physician, who will devise a plan to achieve optimal health.

As a lifestyle personal trainer and nutrition consultant, I have studied for many years the importance of supplements. I work in Palm Beach, West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens.
