The Power of Supplements

Unlocking Optimal Health with GetUFit Fitness and Nutrition


Welcome to the GetUFit Fitness and Nutrition blog! As a board-certified functional diagnostic nutritionist, I am passionate about helping you achieve optimal health through personalized nutrition strategies.   Over the last 14 years, we have served our nationwide audience by helping them increase their energy and optimal wellness. In this article, we’ll delve into the world of supplements and explore why they play a crucial role in supporting your well-being.

Why Consider Supplements?

Bridging Nutritional Gaps

While a balanced diet should ideally provide all the essential nutrients, the reality is that our modern food supply often falls short. Here’s why:

  1. Nutrient-Depleted Soil: Intensive farming practices have depleted the soil of essential minerals, affecting the nutrient content of our produce.
  2. Processing and Cooking: Food processing and cooking can lead to nutrient loss. For instance, vitamin C is sensitive to heat and can degrade during cooking.
  3. Lifestyle Factors: Stress, pollution, and certain medications can increase our nutrient requirements.

Supplements act as a safety net, filling in the gaps where our diet may fall short.

The Role of a Trained Practitioner

Personalized Recommendations

Not all supplements are created equal, and their effectiveness depends on factors like dosage, quality, and individual needs. That’s where a trained practitioner comes in:

  1. Tailored Guidance: A functional diagnostic nutritionist understands your unique health profile and recommends supplements specific to your requirements.
  2. Avoiding Megadoses: Excessive doses can be harmful. A practitioner ensures you take the right amount for optimal results. We are also able to work with you to “titrate” or manage the dose so that we can dial in the right amount.

Choosing the Right Source

Dispensary vs. Manufacturer

  1. Supplement Dispensary:
    • Quality Assurance: Dispensaries stock professional-grade supplements vetted for purity and potency.
    • Expert Guidance: Staff can guide you based on your health goals.
    • Third-Party Testing: Many dispensary products undergo independent testing for quality.
  2. Direct from Manufacturer:
    • Convenience: Ordering directly may be convenient, but quality can vary.
    • Research: Ensure the manufacturer follows strict quality control standards.
