Vitamins and minerals are catalysts, which play an important role in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrate, protein, and muscle functioning. Research indicates that physical activity increases the need for some nutrients. Those nutrient amounts can be met by consuming a balanced diet. Most everyone can benefit from taking a balanced multivitamin and mineral supplement to provide nutrition insurance. A personalized nutrition analysis will determine your nutrient status and display the key nutrients and amounts required to balance your diet.


Physiologically, no two people have the same nutrient requirement. People who consume trace nutrients from foods and/or are nutrient deficient may improve their nutritional status and performance level, but there is no evidence to support the theory that nutrients in the form of oral supplements will improve athletic performance. The preferred method of supplementation is the consumption of a variety of nutrient-dense foods. The increased caloric intake of athletes, providing a variety of foods are consumed, should provide the nutrients necessary to enhance performance. A nutrient guide will determine your nutrient status and define the functions of the essential nutrients and their primary food sources.

Research indicates consuming a balanced supplement suited to one’s individuals needs may enhance nutrient status. A personalized nutrition analysis will detect a nutrient imbalance and hopefully eliminate deficiency toxicity in effort to improve nutrition status and prevent disease.


Balanced supplementation has been proven beneficial for most in many circumstances, such as dieting and illness. Beware of supplement manufacturers making “to good to be true” claims about their product. The supplement may cause harmful side effects as opposed to the “magical cure” promised. Although during athletic training, illness, and dieting one requires a higher demand for certain nutrients, there is no advantage to consuming a nutrient from one source as opposed to another. Our body cannot detect whether a nutrient has been derived form a natural or synthetic source. Eating a variety of foods will ensure one receives a variety of nutrients. A personalized nutrition analysis will provide an accurate comparison of the nutrients you consume in comparison to RDA suggested amounts.
