Nutritional Supplements Q & A

What are nutritional supplements?

Nutritional supplements are forms of dietary supplements that complement a healthy diet to meet your body’s daily essential nutrient needs. Examples of common nutritional supplements that can benefit your health include:

  • Vitamin and mineral supplements
  • Herbal supplements
  • Fiber supplements
  • Protein-rich meal replacements
  • Omega-3 supplements
  • Probiotics
  • Supplements for women’s health or menopause symptoms
  • Men’s health supplements
  • Anti-aging supplements

The type of dietary supplement that best suits your needs depends on your age, gender, health, and disease risk factors. Though dietary supplements aren’t regulated as tightly as foods and drugs, the expert medical team at True Potential MD recommends quality products at an affordable price.

What are the benefits of nutritional supplements?

By taking quality nutritional supplements that match your personalized needs, you can reap the following health and wellness benefits:

  • Fewer nutrient deficiencies
  • More energy
  • A healthier weight
  • Less body fat
  • Better overall health and wellness
  • Healthier hair, skin, and nails
  • A stronger immune system
  • A reduced risk of illness and disease
  • Better brain and mental health

Nutritional supplements can help lower blood cholesterol or blood sugar and give you the nutrients you might lack through diet alone. Supplements help prevent health problems before they arise or become problematic.

What should I expect during my appointment?

When you arrive at your appointment at True Potential MD, your practitioner checks your weight, blood pressure, and other vital signs. They review your medical history and ask questions about your lifestyle and symptoms.

Your True Potential MD specialist examines you and uses blood tests to determine if you have a nutritional deficiency or a chronic disease requiring medical treatment. They might recommend taking nutritional supplements along with healthy lifestyle changes as part of a holistic, personalized disease treatment or weight loss plan.

Which nutritional supplements are right for me?

Everybody is different, which is why the True Potential MD team customizes each treatment plan to meet your unique needs. They might recommend more than one nutritional supplement to restore your physical and mental health, prevent diseases, lose weight, or give you the boost of energy you desire.
