There’s so much talk about using different health supplements for everything from weight management to better brain function. Can health supplements enhance health and performance? Yes! Is shopping for health supplements on your own usually the best answer? In reality, using any health supplement without taking into consideration optimal conditions for absorption often leads to:

  • Incorrect dosages.
  • Use of untested, inferior products.
  • Ineffective supplementation due to minimized bioavailability.
  • Dangerous contraindications with medicines.
  • Exacerbated health conditions stemming from improper supplementation use.
  • Wasted time and money.

At Functional and Metabolic Medicine of Colorado, we educate our patients on the science of supplementation. We want our patients to know that smart, effective supplementation is so much more than popping the latest pills advertised by a celebrity or online influencer. It’s important to know the way that different supplements interact with your unique physiology to create results. Supplementation done wrong can be everything from ineffective to harmful. What’s more, malabsorption issues caused by a digestive disorder may be preventing you from properly absorbing nutrients. It’s so important to work with a functional medicine doctor capable of providing the care and education needed for optimal absorption and bioavailability!

How Supplementation Can Help You Live a Healthier Life

Supplementation can be essential for filling in the gaps left by diet, exercise and a healthy lifestyle. Not all of us can stay completely on track with getting the dosages of vitamins, minerals and nutrients needed for optimal physical health 100 percent of the time. What’s more, things like stressful life events, illnesses and chronic conditions can make us more susceptible to deficiencies that can create a snowball effect with our health if we can’t restore optimal levels of certain vitamins, minerals, nutrients or hormones.

At Functional and Metabolic Medicine of Colorado, we help patients who are interested in supplementation for mental sharpness, weight management, better athletic performance, exercise recovery and hormonal balancing. In fact, we offer specialized supplementation paths for men, women, athletes and people concerned with aging.

Frequently Asked Questions About Health Supplements

Yes! Here at Functional and Metabolic Medicine of Colorado, we offer health supplement counseling and education to help you identify supplements and resources that can help you to achieve optimal levels of key vitamins, minerals, nutrients and hormones. Many patients find that they are able to save time and money while getting better results when working personally with a functional medicine doctor instead of trying to piece together their own supplementation plans using information from scattered sources. We also offer testing to help you identify deficiencies for targeted supplementation.

We offer IV nutrition services in the Denver area that allow our patients to get infusions of key vitamins and nutrients. Popular options offered here at our office in Littleton include NAD infusions, immunity drips (glutathione, vitamin C and zinc), vitamin B complex and vitamin C.

Many people who begin supplementation aren’t addressing the digestive issues that are leading to poor nutrient absorption. As a result, they spend tons of money on supplements that their bodies can’t utilize because they aren’t addressing the underlying issue. That’s why we focus on whole-body, integrated health designed to help you get the most out of the supplements you take.
