Nutrition Q & A

How does nutrition affect aging?

Nutrition is the foundation of your overall health at any age, but changes that occur in your body as you grow older make proper nutrition an even more critical factor in leading a long, high-quality life. 

Hormonal fluctuations, digestive system changes, and the natural slowing of internal organ function have an impact on your nutritional needs as well as your body’s ability to absorb nutrients from the food you eat.

Vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients affect your bones, blood, heart health, sleep, and brain function. 

Yet many Americans suffer from nutritional deficiencies that can deplete energy and put you at a higher risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, cancer, and other conditions that older adults have a higher chance of developing.

The good news is that making healthy changes to your diet now, including targeted nutritional supplementation, can lower your risk for many conditions while improving your energy, metabolism, muscle mass, and overall wellness.

How does nutritional counseling work?

Good nutrition doesn’t mean the exact same thing for every person. Your genetics, health history, lifestyle, and personal food preferences all contribute to your body’s unique nutritional requirements. 

The experts at BioviveMD begin your nutritional counseling by performing a comprehensive physical exam, reviewing your health history, and discussing your current food choices with you in detail. 

Your provider may recommend metabolic code profiling, a cutting-edge assessment of how your metabolic process impacts your overall health. 

They also may order blood work to determine if you have a vitamin deficiency, food allergies or sensitivities, hormonal imbalance, or another condition that may be affecting the way your body absorbs nutrients from the food you eat.

Once your provider has reviewed all your information, they design a customized plan to optimize your nutrition for robust health and longevity.

What is involved in a nutrition program?

Based on your individual requirements, your personalized nutrition program may include:

  • Dietary guidelines
  • Meal plans
  • Physician-recommended supplements
  • Physician-supervised detoxification
  • Sarcotropin therapy to oppose the loss of lean muscle
  • Growth hormone-releasing peptide therapy

Your physician may also recommend treatment to address underlying medical conditions, such as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy or allergy treatment. 

If you’re overweight, they may recommend that you have an evaluation for a medical weight-loss program, available at BioviveMD.
