Overview: When discussing dietary supplements, it is important to remember that ‘Food is First’ in the foundation of nutrition. In addition to food, supplements are often needed and serve a purpose in addressing nutrient insufficiencies as well as deficiencies. In this module, we will consider not only food consumption, but also digestion, absorption, and utilization of nutrients; as well as genomic factors that can increase individual needs. We’ll detail laboratory assessment (including Functional Medicine Labs) of nutrient status.
We’ll explore nutrients as they support biochemical and physiologic function as it’s important to know not just that you have enough via a serum assessment but enough to support optimal function and overall health as well.
In this Module, we detail nutrients and their corresponding supplements at a comprehensive level. For each, we’ll cover…
- Their role in health and disease (Special emphasis on immune support!)
- Deficiency signs/symptoms and risk factors
- Laboratory biomarkers, including functional Lab assessment
- Genomic considerations as they are relevant
- Food Sources
- Supplementation types and dosing
- Research supporting responsible and effective use in practice
- Toxicity concerns
We’ll also explore assessment modalities including laboratory biomarkers and clinical signs/symptoms that aid us to best determine our patients’ needs for supplementation and provide the basis for responsible recommendations. Likewise, the importance of follow-up to adjust recommendations over time.
