Our health is dependent in large part on what we put into our body, and National Nutrition Month is a great reminder to make nutrition a priority.
That month is March, so now is the perfect time to think through how you handle nutrition.
If changes need to be made, now is the time to start. If you do not focus on healthy choices, you may be wasting all the other good things you do.
The Guyer Institute has long made healthy eating a key ingredient of its care. Dale Guyer, MD, is a master gardener. He knows from firsthand experience that plentiful fresh produce is essential to optimal body function.
“There is no underestimating the importance of what you consume,” Dr. Guyer says. “To maximize health and ward off disease, great nutrition needs to be a constant, not an afterthought.”
The Guyer Institute is seeing several positive nutrition trends this year:
Increase in Plant Based Diets: Many patients take advantage of this type of diet to help reduce systemic inflammation. They also know it is healthier for the environment.
More Nut Milk: Patients are often eliminating traditional milk from their diets. They opt for macadamia nut, coconut, cashew, almond or other nut milks. Nuts may help reduce risk factors for many chronic diseases, including heart disease and diabetes.
Meal Delivery Plans: This year more than ever, patients are taking advantage of meal delivery plans. The benefits include saving time, pre-portioned amounts, and the ability to tailor many different dietary styles, vegetarian, vegan, paleo, organic, and many more.
Nutrition can and should be buttressed with supplements. Three popular products we carry:
SynerG – A potent multivitamin and antioxidant that helps fill the gaps in nutrition
Vitamin D – Supplementing with Vitamin D3 5000 helps promote healthy metabolism and better immune function
KMG – blend of potassium and magnesium in a highly absorbable form, which helps balance electrolytes.
For lifestyles on the go, the supplement store also sells the nutrition based ProBar line. http://bit.ly/TheSupplementStore
At the Guyer Institute, we advise: your body is only as healthy as the food you consume.
