Did you know that only about 60% of Americans view dieticians in a constructive light? Comparatively, only 51% of Americans view nutrition researchers positively.
It’s not surprising—after all, it’s difficult to know whether a source is reliable or not. Unfortunately, this often leads to Americans making poor dietary choices due to misinformation.
However, there are plenty of scientifically-backed nutritional methods that can help you improve your wellbeing. Functional Nutrition is one of the increasingly popular concepts that many holistic practitioners use to aid their patients.
But what is Functional Nutrition? And how can it help you? Keep reading below as we fill you in on everything you need to know about Functional Nutrition benefits.
Eliminates the Guessing Game
Unfortunately, ads on Instagram have convinced many people that if they take a special gummy vitamin or supplement, they’ll be able to eat whatever they want and maintain a healthy lifestyle. However, this is far from the truth. Not only do social media platforms and tabloids push these “magic pills,” but they also recommend various diet plans to help users achieve their health goals.
People often grow disheartened when a specific meal or diet plan doesn’t deliver on what they promise. This is because diets are not a one-size-fits-all formula.
Functional Nutrition approaches one’s diet holistically, and it takes into account things like a person’s activity levels, mental health, medical history, etc.
By using Functional Nutrition, you won’t have to sample a plethora of nutrition plans to see what works for you. Instead, we develop a personalized plan just for you based on all the data we gather.
Lessens Gut Irritability
If you suffer from IBS or other gut/bowel problems, Functional Nutrition can greatly benefit you. It works to help you from eating foods that may cause irritability and instead pushes foods that improve gut flora and health. We know that gut health is very important in many ways, including immune function. Let’s keep your gut happy!
Leaves You More Satisfied
Many of us subscribe to the idea that we need to eat three large meals each day. However, Functional Nutrition will look at the best way to approach food and nutrients according to your body.
Because Functional Nutrition is based on objective data we obtain directly from your body, we can personalize the recommendations. This means you will know exactly which nutrients your body needs more of and which nutrients you don’t. Getting all of your body’s building blocks met makes your body feel more satisfied, enabling you to keep up your mental and physical energy at its highest level.
Discover the Power of Functional Nutrition
It’s essential to tailor your healthcare around your personal needs. Utilizing a diet based on Functional Nutrition is a great way to take care of your body, and it’s a stepping stone for creating other healthy behavioral changes.
