Supplement Evaluations Q & A

How does nutrition affect my health?

Nutrition is the foundation of your overall health. Vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients affect your bones, blood, heart health, sleep, and brain function. 

Yet many Americans suffer from nutritional deficiencies that can cause fatigue, interfere with metabolism, and increase their risk for serious health complications.

Good nutrition is also essential as you age. Nutritional deficiencies put older men and women at a higher risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, and other conditions that already affect aging adults at a higher rate. 

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, increasing muscle mass, and promoting your overall health.

How do supplement evaluations work?

The vitamins you can buy in the grocery store take a one-size-fits-all approach to supplementation, but the experts at BioviveMD understand that every individual has unique nutritional requirements. 

Therefore, your skilled provider performs a physical exam, reviews your health history, and orders blood work to determine if you have a vitamin or nutrient deficiency or another condition that may be affecting your body’s ability to absorb nutrients from the food you eat. 

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

They may also recommend additional lab work to determine if you have an underlying condition that is affecting the way your body absorbs vitamins and nutrients, such as food allergies or sensitivities, hormonal imbalance, or digestive disorders. 

Once your provider has reviewed all of your information, they will recommend a supplement plan to meet your personal needs. The team recommends high-quality supplements formulated by companies that have been extensively vetted by BioviveMD.

Are there other types of nutritional support available?

BioviveMD offers several options to address your nutritional goals, such as:

  • Nutritional counseling
  • Medical weight-loss programs
  • Physician-supervised detoxification
  • Sarcotropin therapy to oppose loss of lean muscle
  • Growth hormone-releasing peptide therapy

If your physician determines that an underlying condition is contributing to your nutrient deficiency, they may recommend care for that condition, such as bioidentical hormone replacement for menopause, or allergy testing and treatment.

Physician-preferred supplements can help you look and feel your best at any age. For supplement evaluations performed by a caring, experienced provider, call the BioviveMD location nearest you to schedule a nutritional consultation or make an appointment online today.
