Do you need to take nutritional supplements?

You don’t always have time to cook, you are note sure about the quality of the food eat, your life is stressful, your diet is not ideal, you don’t drink enough mineral water, you don’t practice enough sports, you live in a polluted area, you don’t sleep well…  there are many reasons that would make your metabolism lack vitamins, minerals or have disbalanced elements. These deficiencies could cause on the long term some serious diseases, or chronic illnesses. Nowadays a lot of nutritional supplements are available without any prescription or medical advice. And why not to take some since they are supposed to be natural and they help our body.  Stop right here! Each human is unique and not everyone should take any supplements. Note that for some patients, supplements may have side effects, especially if taken before surgery or with other medicines. Supplements can also cause problems if you have certain health conditions.

So the main point to start with is to  have a serious followup with a therapist specializing in preventive medicine and nutrition.

This being said, we can talk about some specific supplements that we notice are regularly advised by our specialist:

Let’s begin with lack of vitamin D, the populations of the less sunny countries, but also certain categories of population which go out rarely (sick, elderly …) can suffer from deficiency due to a lack of exposure to the UV of the sun.In addition, the body’s ability to absorb and synthesize vitamin D decreases with age. It causes muscle pain, increases the risk of fracture (osteoporosis) and is associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. In general, it seems that vitamin D is correlated with many diseases even if no study can prove for the moment. In case of deficiency in vitamin D, it’s recommended to have a daily intake of 3000 to 5000 IU especially during the winter seasons with less sun.

Another interesting supplement would be Omega 3. It nourishes the whole of your body for the whole of your life. Without it, we just don’t work quite as well.  It’s an essential polyunsaturated long chain fatty acid. It’s called essential because we can’t make it on our own. We can turn sunlight into Vitamin D, for example, but the only way to get Omega 3 is to eat it. There are many different types of fatty acids that belong to the Omega 3 family, but EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) are the three types that you hear about most often, because they’re the most useful to us. Omega 3 fatty acids support healthy blood vessel function, which promotes blood flow and helps maintain blood pressure already in the normal range, while also inhibiting inflammatory factors. These essential fats also help maintain healthy LDL and HDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels that are already within the normal range. Omega 3s promote healthy cognitive function  and mood. All of these benefits support heart health and encourage longevity. The western diet often lacks of Omega 3 that you find in oily fish such as sardines and mackerel. So good Omega 3 supplements can be an answer to Omega 3 deficiency.

And lets finish this small survey with the incredible benefits of curcuma.  In recent years, the scientific community has begun to show interest in the potential health benefits of the turmeric root. Curcuma longa, and its main active component curcumin, have been evaluated as potential natural remedies for conditions like cancer, allergies, Alzheimer’s disease, cognitive decline, cataracts, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and cardiovascular disease. The potential health effects of turmeric are believed to be particularly strong when you eat turmeric in combination with black pepper as piperine in black pepper boosts the effectiveness of curcumin in turmeric.

Our therapist specializing in age management provides a deep blood and urine analysis that allows him to help the patient to improve his daily life with supplement such as cucurma.  Our preventive check-up identifies and treats the nutritional and hormonaldeficiencies and provides a personalized approach. By optimizing lifestyle, diet, exercise, stress levels, detoxification, we want to boost your energy, your well-being, your happiness and your sex life.
