Don’t Let Nutrient Interactions Get You Down! How Functional Medicine Can Help You Stay Balanced and Healthy
Nutrient interactions can be like a complicated dance – if one nutrient is out of step, it can throw off the whole routine. But don’t worry – functional medicine is here to help! In this blog post, we’ll explore some common nutrient interactions and how they can impact your health.
Why Nutrient Interactions Matter
Nutrient interactions can be like a domino effect – one imbalance can impact other areas of your health, and potentially lead to chronic health conditions. By understanding common nutrient interactions, you can take steps to maintain balance and support your overall health.
Common Nutrient Interactions
Here are some common nutrient interactions that we see in our patients, and how they can impact your health:
Calcium and Iron
Calcium and iron can be like two rival dance partners – if they’re not coordinated, they can interfere with each other’s absorption in the body. We can help you balance your intake of these important nutrients to ensure optimal absorption and support bone health.
Vitamin D and Magnesium
Vitamin D and magnesium can be like two peas in a pod – they work together to support bone health, but can also impact other areas of your health, such as your immune system and cardiovascular health. We can help you balance your intake of these important nutrients to support your overall health.
Phytic Acid and Zinc
Phytic acid and zinc can be like two frenemies – phytic acid can bind to zinc and interfere with its absorption in the body, potentially leading to zinc deficiencies. We can help you identify potential sources of phytic acid in your diet and suggest ways to support your zinc levels naturally.
