Are you getting enough nutrients in your diet to ensure optimal health?  Even Americans often suffer nutritional deficiencies!  This is often true of dieters and athletes.  Including supplements in your diet is an important step towards protecting against such deficiencies.

Why do you suppose so many people in the U.S. consume insufficient amounts of at least one or more essential vitamins and minerals?  Perhaps one of the main causes of malnutrition in our country is living off diets that consist mainly of high-calorie, high-fat foods that offer very little nutritional value!  Fast food is a prime example of this type of diet.

Consequences of Nutrient Depletion

Everyone has daily nutritional needs.  Active individuals typically need extra amounts of water, electrolytes, magnesium, iron, calcium, protein, fat (especially Omega-3 fatty acids), carbohydrates, B vitamins, antioxidants, and other nutrients.

During intense physical activity, the body undergoes metabolic changes that require reaching into the body’s store of nutrients.  After exercise, the body goes through a period of adaptation and recovery.  During both strenuous activity and the recovery process afterwards, athletes need to replenish the essential nutrients in their bodies to avoid the consequences of nutrient depletion.

Every individual has specific needs with regards to nutrition and supplements. Meet with Dr. Carlson for an initial consultation.  Get started by downloading this Symptom Survey.
