Chiropractic Woodbury MN Looking For The Right Supplements

Many of you who seek a chiropractor in Woodbury MN do so for many reasons, whether it's because you have stress, fatigue, pain, digestion issues, hormonal imbalances, just to name a few. For many of these complaints, they will also have a nutritional component to them. Today, diets are usually high in sugar and carbohydrate content and are full of refined and processed foods. The average person usually does not eat enough fresh foods that are high in nutrients, minerals and antioxidants that will help preserve overall health and wellness. People should have a diet that consists of good fats, vegetables, grass fed proteins (organic vegetables, low grains and limited sugars and starches). Most of these individuals will benefit from high quality supplements in order to get the proper nutrients.

Supplements in Woodbury MN

Quality is better than quantity when it comes to supplements. Sometimes, people think that more is better, but the body can only absorb so much, then the rest is eliminated. The body goes through this process: digestion, absorption, transportation, metabolization, storage and elimination. A good supplement that includes whole food ingredients is more complex, meaning they are a mix of compounds that are used to address a wide range of the body's needs.

Look beyond the labels. You may recognize some ingredients. Look for a product that has ingredients that you can understand; however, some research may be involved if you have never heard of some ingredients. Take glucosamine for example. Glucosamine is a food isolate that can be used in supplements to help provide optimal nutritional support because research shows that it has strong evidence for efficacy. Sometimes nutrients are not available in the quantities that are needed for maximum effect, so ingredients like glucosamine are added to enhance the products efficacy.

According to Dr. Royal Lee, the founder of Standard Process, "Whole food nutrition begins with the sun, water and a fertile soil." With your research it would be ideal to find a manufacturer that has certified organic farming that will assure the quality ingredients by growing raw materials organically. There are steps put in place that will enforce the rules and regulations with farming. The MOSA Midwest Organic Services Association, for example, keeps detailed records of manufacturer's farming practices. Also, make sure that there are no GMO's (genetically modified organisms) allowed in the manufacturer's crops. Most organic farms do not allow GMO's to be planted. This will enhance the healthiest products. The DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act) and FDA (Food and Drug Administration) also help regulate routine inspections of the facilities, regulate claim labels to make sure they are truthful and not misleading. They acknowledge the importance of nutrition and dietary benefits these supplements can provide.

Here is a list of possible supplement manufacturers that you may want to research: Standard Process, Metagenics, Garden of Life. Please seek out your local chiropractor, nutritionist or other professionals to help point you in the right direction.
