Endocrinologist-nutritionist Arina Tertyshnaya listed the basic elements, without which it is impossible to maintain health and well-being, MedicForum reported.
Our body has basic deficiencies. If they are not eliminated, it is useless to treat any disease; there will be no effect, the specialist notes.
Violations of these basic deficiencies are the first alarm signals, which, if ignored, will lead to serious illnesses.
Gastrointestinal tract is the first place to go: it is important to normalize its work, otherwise all the vitamins and minerals won’t be assimilated.
Protein – if you don’t get protein from food, you simply do not have the main building material for the body. Adjust and balance your diet. Add collagen as an additional source of amino acids.
Vitamin C is important and necessary for every cell. However, it should not be taken without collecting a history. If there is inflammation in the gut, taking vitamin C can only be detrimental.
Magnesium – is involved in over 1,000 reactions. The daily requirement is 400 mg. It is very difficult to get this mineral through food, so we connect an additional intake. Basically you can take the chelate form, which is suitable for everyone.
Iodine is a prophylactic dose of 150 mcg. It is important to check the thyroid condition before use. Most have an iodine deficiency. Keep in mind that iodized salt will not fully compensate for deficiencies.
Iron – To prevent anemia, it is important to monitor ferritin early on. It is the breathing, energy of every cell. Doses of iron are prescribed after tests are taken.
Vitamin D is not just calcium-phosphorus metabolism. It’s also energy for cells, immunoprotection, and so on.
