Do you know whether you’re taking too much or too little of your current supplements? Or maybe you wonder whether you really need supplemental nutrients.

Even when you eat a balanced diet it can be hard to get your minimum requirement for some nutrients. You can be sure you’re missing essential vitamins and minerals.
When you face daily stress, chronic disease, intensive athletic training, emotional distress, or an injury, your body uses more nutrients than normal, quickly draining your reserves and creating a deficiency. As you get older, natural changes in stomach acids and digestive enzymes block your ability to absorb certain nutrients.
In other words, there’s a good chance that you need supplements, but you shouldn’t guess about the type of nutrient or dose. Nova Vita Wellness Centers experts can answer those questions with information obtained during your vitamin supplement evaluation.
Nova Vita Wellness Centers strongly encourages using vitamin and mineral supplements to help treat medical conditions, prevent deficiencies, and support your energy and metabolism needs. To reach those goals, it’s important to be sure you’re taking the optimal dose of the right supplements and following a protocol that doesn’t interfere with your medications.
Using a vitamin supplement evaluation, the team of experts collect information about your diet, current supplements, and health status. They usually run blood work, urine tests, hormone tests, or other diagnostics to verify your blood levels of nutrients.
After reviewing all your information, they develop a plan that includes the vitamin and mineral supplements you need and the dose that’s best for your health.
Nova Vita Wellness Centers recommends high-quality brands that contain natural ingredients and provide the actual dose and ingredients listed on the label. They often ask patients to take supplements, such as:
A nutraceutical is a whole food or part of a food that provides medicinal or health benefits. For example, fish is a whole food that’s a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, but the omega-3 fish oil can be extracted and sold as a nutraceutical.
