How to know FOR SURE which supplement is right for you?
Proper nutrition is absolutely essential for health. But we don’t always get all the nutrients we need from our food.
You may know people who take dietary supplements, or maybe you take some yourself. Perhaps you wondered whether you need a dietary supplement at all or what nutrients you needed to supplement. After all, you are an individual with unique needs, and one size does not fit all when it comes to supplementation.
NewSpring Pharmacy has partnered with SpectraCell Laboratories to offer you the most accurate method of assessing nutritional deficiencies. The test measure the function of 35 nutritional components, including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within the white blood cells. This gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies.
Why do I have a nutritional deficiency?
We know that a diet that does not contain enough of the nutrients we need can cause a deficiency. There are other causes as well. For instance, a disorder of the small intestine may prevent proper absorption of nutrients. Intestinal parasites will also often cause a deficiency, and so will certain conditions such as hypothyroidism. Pregnant women also need extra nutrients. Supplementation helps them prevent nutritional deficiency, in particular, iron deficiency. Micronutrient testing can therefore alert you to a health issue, thus enabling you to get resolution and improve your wellbeing.
Who should be tested?
All of us can benefit from micronutrient testing, even when we have no illness. Discovering nutritional deficiencies early gives us the opportunity to correct them and potentially prevent serious diseases later on, such as Osteoporosis, Arthritis and heart disease.
Remember though that supplementation is not a substitute for your physician’s advice if you have a medical condition.
