Nutritional Supplements Q & A

Why do I need nutritional supplements?

Even if you follow the picture-perfect diet and strive to get all of your essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients through healthy foods, chances are you’re still going to come up lacking in certain areas. Nutritional supplements fill in the gaps where your nutrient levels fall below where they should be.

In many cases, supplementing certain fats, herbs, and amino acids, as well as other nutrients, can promote healing and decrease inflammation. Nutritional supplements can also help:

  • Minimize joint pain
  • Boost metabolism
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Promote regularity

Because each type of nutritional supplement works differently, it’s important to seek medical advice before starting a new one.

Which nutritional supplements are best?

In most cases, identifying the best nutritional supplements for you depends on your current health status, any underlying injuries, and your diet. The wellness experts at Root Medical proudly offer two different product lines of medical-grade nutritional supplements: Standard Process® and Systemic Formulas®.

These advanced dietary supplements have undergone rigorous testing by medical researchers, so you can feel confident that your supplements are going to be safe and effective. The best and most popular types of nutritional supplements these companies offer include:

  • Probiotics
  • Vitamin B complex
  • Musculoskeletal health products
  • Whole food supplements
  • Detox and purification programs

Because the health and wellness experts at Root Medical understand that nutritional supplement labels can be overwhelming, they spend time going over how each one works and when to take it.

Are dietary supplements safe?

In general, nutritional supplements aren’t regulated by the FDA, so it’s important to select supplements that come from reputable companies. The clinically tested Standard Process and Systemic Formulas products offered at Root Medical are proven to be safe, with little to no risk of side effects.

Some dietary supplements can interact with your prescription medications. Supplements containing St. John’s Wort, for instance, can reduce the effectiveness of oral contraceptives. Because of these possible interactions and to help tailor your nutritional supplement plan, it’s important to sit down with Dr. Nelson and discuss all of your current medications.
