Nutritional Supplements Q & A

What are nutritional supplements?

Nutritional supplements contain vitamins, minerals, and/or nutrients missing from your diet. They come in several forms, including capsules, pills, liquids, and powders. 

Some people take nutritional supplements to address vitamin and nutritional deficiencies; others use them to maintain equilibrium or treat specific health problems. 

The integrative medicine specialists at Preston Arndt, MD Medical Clinic often recommend supplements as an alternative to traditional prescription medications.

Who should consider using nutritional supplements?

You might be a candidate for nutritional supplements if you have a vitamin or mineral deficiency. For example, many Americans don’t get enough vitamin D. Vitamin D supplementation improves your ability to absorb calcium and reduces inflammation.

You might also benefit from nutritional supplements if you:

  • Are pregnant (or hoping to get pregnant)
  • Have been diagnosed with a chronic illness, like arthritis
  • Are an athlete and want to improve recovery after races or games
  • Don’t get adequate nutrition from your diet

Some people use nutritional supplements to improve their focus and mental acuity.

What type of nutritional supplements will benefit me?

Only a qualified medical professional, like the providers at Preston Arndt, MD Medical Clinic, can determine the type of nutritional supplements that will most benefit you.

Before making any recommendations, your provider reviews your medical history, asks about your symptoms, and completes a physical exam. Then, they order lab testing, including blood work and urinalysis to check for vitamin or nutritional deficiencies. 

After gathering a complete picture of your health, your provider develops a personalized supplementation schedule.
