Vitamins and Minerals
Ideally we should be able to obtain sufficient vitamins and minerals from our foods. However with the increased use of insecticides and pesticides which has depleted the soil of vital nutrients, imported products, processed foods, stress and lifestyle factors it is difficult to obtain all necessary nutrients from our diet. We are also all biochemically different and your need for Vitamin C may be a lot higher than someone else’s.
Nutrients have very specific purposes in the body, magnesium for example is vital for heart health, healthy bowel function and correct muscular function. Zinc is needed for the production of adequate stomach acid for digestion, brain function, growth, a healthy immune system and so much more.
At the clinic we assess which vitamins and minerals are deficient in the body and which are at optimum levels. The Nutrient test checks the levels of all the main vitamins and minerals in the body including; Vitamins A, C, D, E and minerals calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, selenium, chromium and all the B vitamins including B12 and folic acid.
Nutrients for digestive health -Good bacteria,digestive enzymes and essential fats are also assessed.
Nutrients are vital for all body functions including:
- Blood and Brain Function
- Immune Health
- Emotional stability and Nervous System function
- Hormone Balance
- Healthy Skin
- Bone formation
- Energy Levels
A Nutrient test is carried out at the first consultation and is included in the consultation fee.
It is vital to identify nutrient deficiencies, as it allows a very specific food and supplement programme to be designed for your individual needs. This allows you to see results faster.
You will receive a colour print-out of all nutrients tested which will be explained in detail to you.
