Wishing you a great start to 2016!
Here are two nutrition tips from Holistic Nutrition Center to consider as you begin your healthy new year:
1. Minerals: are a requirement from your diet. They work with your DNA metabolism and need to be in a state of balance for proper function. You take them in from food and eliminate them through body fluids such as sweat, urine or diarrhea. Excess fluids leaving the body can flush minerals out. So health-promoting fitness programs that leave you drenched, like hot yoga, for example, can produce unintentional mineral deficiencies or imbalances. My tip - you need the exercise so keep it up, but check your mineral balance with nutritional lab testing.
2. Healthy Diet: a diet program may seem healthy, but if it doesn’t address your unique metabolic needs, it may reflect in your health. For example, an ideal diet for a fit, energetic 30-year old male may be inadequate for a 50-year old female with fatigue, sleep problems, and hormone changes. He doesn't need the specific nutrition that is required to run the complexity of her metabolism, so they need different diets. The best nutrition plans address the needs of the individual: age, gender, activity level, medications, BMI, lifestyle, genetics, microbiome, etc. My tip – to get the best results from your diet, so you feel vitally healthy, you may need a customized nutrition plan.
