As stated previously, most of us know we need to lose weight, exercise, eat better, and quit smoking. Unfortunately, very few of us understand how to get out of the rut we tend to fall into. We all have heard “you are what you eat.” There are tests and tools to help patients have more information to help commit to lifestyle changes.
Why is Nutrition Important?
Your body can’t operate at its maximum capacity if it doesn’t have the nutrients it needs to function. When you’re younger, your body can sometimes get by with slightly fewer nutrients than it needs. But when you get older, maintaining a proper balance of nutrients becomes more challenging, even if you make an effort to consume a well-balanced diet. This is because it becomes more difficult for the body to both create and absorb certain nutrients over time.
Maintaining a proper balance of nutrients as you age can help drastically reduce your chance of developing certain diseases and conditions, and allow you to lead an active, healthy lifestyle at every stage in your life.
Some of the most common nutrients that people are deficient in include:
- Vitamin D
- Fish oil
- B Vitamins
Why buy supplements from the Benessere Clinic?
Many people don’t realize that over-the-counter supplements are not approved by the FDA and are subject to extremely relaxed regulations. There’s no way to know for certain that the supplements you’re purchasing actually contain the nutrients that they say they do.
At Benessere Clinic, we stock brands that do comprehensive testing to ensure that labeling information is accurate, and the supplements are of the highest quality. These nutrients are also specially designed to provide our clients with comprehensive nutritional care that is both safe and reliable.
