Supplements Q & A

What are supplements?

Supplements are substances you take to help fill in any gaps in your daily nutrition. They come in several forms, including pills, tablets, powders, and liquids. 

You can certainly meet your daily nutritional requirements through food sources alone. Doing so, however, requires substantial time and effort. Meal planning, shopping, preparation, and cleanup take time, and many people struggle to eat the variety of foods necessary to meet daily nutrient recommendations.  

Supplements provide a means of giving your body what it needs each and every day. For people with a deficiency in one or more vital nutrients, supplements can help them feel and function better. 

How do supplements boost overall nutrition?

Supplements provide specific micronutrients that your body needs to thrive. Some people rely on a daily multivitamin that includes a blend of many different vitamins and minerals. For others, targeted supplement therapy works to resolve a specific deficiency.

When you take a supplement, your digestive system immediately breaks it down and incorporates the ingredients into your bloodstream. This fuels your tissues and organs at the cellular level. 

Many lesser-quality supplement brands are made with fillers that offer no nutritional benefit. Others are difficult for your digestive system to fully break down, and a portion of the tablet or pill passes through your digestive system completely, giving you no benefit. 

HealthyU Clinics is proud to offer HealthyU Med, a line of top-quality supplements and other products designed to support your nutrition at the most basic levels.  

How do I know which supplements are right for me?

The supplement industry is booming, and there are hundreds of different options competing for consumer attention. Knowing where to begin with supplementation can be challenging. 

Further complicating matters is that taking too much of certain supplements can be harmful. Some supplements also interact negatively with certain medications. That’s why working with a medical professional is important to find the right supplements for you. 

HealthyU Clinics offers blood testing to determine if you’re deficient in specific nutrients. This helps your practitioner devise a customized supplement plan aligned with your needs and goals.
