If you’re eating enough but you still lack the energy and enthusiasm to get through the day, the culprit might be your metabolism and/or your gut.
“Fatigue can be secondary to maldigestion and malabsorption of important nutrients for energy,” according to Dr. Rolando ‘Oyie’ Balburias, Health Optimization Medicine Consultant at the BioBalance Wellness Institute.
Your body converts what you eat and drink into energy. But despite your best efforts to eat ‘right,’ your body may still be deficient or in excess of several vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants.
When something’s amiss, you experience a range of symptoms, including chronic fatigue and other generalized symptoms from mood swings, frequent headaches, to digestive problems. There’s no foolproof fix unless you know what’s really wrong.
Taking the Core Nutrient and Metabolic Test, which measures your body’s nutrient status and energy conversion efficiency, can be your first step to getting better.
By answering these four critical questions, the test gives you more insight to your energy, disposition, and overall health.
Is my body efficiently producing energy? The Core Nutrient and Metabolic Test assesses how you convert your carbohydrates, fats, and proteins to energy. If it’s not enough, you might be deficient in necessary nutrients such as B Complex Vitamins, antioxidants like Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Magnesium, which are key in the food breakdown and metabolism process.
How healthy is my gut? Because the gut absorbs the required amount of nutrients for daily function and immunity, any imbalance due to a diet high in sugar and yeast (fermented foods) is problematic. You can suffer from chronic digestive woes while your body struggles to adequately absorb important nutrients. With the Core Nutrient and Metabolic Test , know the status of your gut and need for interventions like Probiotics, Vitamin B6, or other medications.
How does my brain affect my current disposition? Fatigue may also be caused by imbalances in important brain markers such as epinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin. These substances influence how we sleep, handle stress, and respond to emotional and mental challenges. Nutritional intake and gut health, which the Core Nutrient and Metabolic Test measures, equally affect how we produce them.
Am I getting enough nutrients? A nutrient deficiency signals an imbalance in your body way before illness sets in. When this remains unaddressed, the body can still function but not as well as you want. The Core Nutrient and Metabolic Test identifies your nutritional status, including specific levels of vitamins, anti-oxidants, and minerals.
From the results of the Core Nutrient and Metabolic Test, you will receive a personalized and ideal nutritional protocol (food and supplements) to optimize overall health and energy production.
