When it comes to supplements, how do you decide what you should take? Visit any grocery or health store and there are countless options lining the shelves — some riskier to play around with than others.
But there is also a certain level of risk that comes with not taking supplements. Food can only provide is with a certain level of nutrition, even when we eat a proper diet.
Take one of my clients, for example. He came to me at 48 years old with brain fog, fatigue in the afternoon, sleep trouble, and consistently sick.
I looked at his blood results and confirmed he had chronic inflammation, a tendency for high inflammation, and aggressive pro-inflammatory genes. He also didn’t process folic acid from food or vitamin D from food or the sun.
What did we do? We gave him:
- a topical calming cream to help with sleep
- B vitamins with active folate, active B-12, and B-6
- liquid vitamin D to help with immunity
- mucuna supplement to help with focus at work
His response to me?
“This treatment is a game-changer.”
What can your genes tell you?
I can do the same for you that I did for my 48-year-old client. Using your genetic profile, I can:
- see how your body absorbs and transports the basic vitamins, A, B, C, D, E, and K;
- tell your likely levels of magnesium, selenium, zinc, and iron, which are cofactors, or what is necessary for basic vitamins to work;
- see predispositions for faulty metabolic processes in your body, such as under- or over-methylation;
- look at neurotransmitters to determine your needs for gaba, serotonin, and dopamine;
- look at genes that eliminate toxins, reduce oxidative stress, and reduce inflammation.
All of these factors help in determining the best supplements for you.
