Set a Better Foundation for Health
Active living and healthy aging make some strong nutritional demands. But modern nutritional fuel often fails to provide enough gas to go very far down the right roads. Fast food lifestyles may contribute to a lower intake of health-promoting nutrients, while contributing to "overnourishment" of fats, sugars, and energy intake that can negatively influence health. The aging process, genetic variations, and gastrointestinal health also influence the body's ability to absorb nutrients.
How Supplements Help Meet Nutritional Needs
While food is the optimal source, nutritional supplements may be strategically recommended to help fill dietary gaps or meet special requirements for key nutrients. But not all supplements contain active ingredients or dosages supported by solid science. And some may contain ingredients with lower bioavailability , higher allergen potential, or contaminants. All of which jeopardize program success and increase the risk for adverse events and additional health complaints.
Foundation Nutrition Support for Wellness and Active Living
Metagenics offers many science-based, natural formulas that provide quality support for foundation nutrition. Including daily multivitamin/ mineral formulas to promote overall health and single nutrient formulas for both general and targeted applications.
Helping Patients Return to Good Health
Today, chronic health conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease have become so common that most people don't remember what it's like to be in excellent health. And if they're not feeling their best, they can't be their best. In truth, many chronic health conditions are preventable. They're the result of years of poor eating habits, lack of exercise, and prolonged exposure to stress. And leading health organizations now tell them that by returning to a healthier lifestyle-by getting the right nutrients, becoming active, and learning to manage the stressors in life-many of these conditions can be prevented, managed, or even reversed. The solution seems so simple, and yet, the incidence of chronic illness is continuing to rise at an alarming rate. At Metagenics, they're aiming to change all that.
Addressing Chronic Illness with Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes
Their groundbreaking therapeutic lifestyle change (TLC) programs have helped tens of thousands of chronic illness sufferers all over the world regain their health-so they can once again enjoy their lives to the fullest. Not quick, short term fixes, these programs work because they're focused on helping people develop healthy, life-long habits that they can easily incorporate into their busy schedules. Their TLC programs are available only from specially trained licensed health care professionals-the people qualified to recommend and tailor a regimen that's unique to each individual's needs.
Patient Success Depends on Provider Success
Let's face it. Most doctors' offices have neither the time nor the expertise to provide the individualized lifestyle counseling that's necessary to effect real change. In designing their TLC program, they asked health care providers to tell them what it would take to implement TLC successfully in their practice. The answer was teamwork-getting support staff involved, enlisting practice extenders and ensuring smooth office flow. Today, providers who implement our TLC programs overwhelmingly report that they're busier and more successful than ever in helping patients achieve their desired health outcomes.
Addressing the Root Cause of Illness through Science-Based Nutrition
Back in 1983, they had a big idea: the right nutrition could help people realize their best health possible by positively influencing what makes them unique-their genes. They called it realizing "genetic potential" for good health. Today, it's known as the science of nutrigenomics -the study of food as one of the most important environmental modifiers of gene expression in determining health and disease patterns. Through their substantial and ongoing commitment to nutrigenomic research, they 've been able to identify natural compounds with powerful therapeutic applications, to be used in their science-based TLC programs, medical foods, and nutraceuticals.
Setting the Standard in Research, Quality & Innovation
Knowing that professionals rely on them to make people feel better isn't something they take lightly. It's the reason they lead the industry in research, professional education, and quality manufacturing. But they're also brave enough to search for the next big thing to make an even greater impact on health. The result? An impressive list of patented formulas and ingredients, and a revolutionary product development process to help make natural approaches even safer and more effective.
