Good Health = Good Nutrition

Our modern diets are poor in nutrients.  

Our foods are not as nutrient dense as our grandparents used to eat. Our busy lifestyles cause us to eat prepackaged meals or fast foods. We consume very little fruits, vegetables, and fresh filtered water--which are necessary for maintaining mental health, fighting illness, and replenishing cells. Our reliance on coffee, energy drinks, sugared and salty snacks, and sodas combined with busy lifestyles contributes to feeling poorly. We offer options to feel good, and function. Many of these conditions can be improved. 


Why nutrition Matters


Amino Acids

A number of amino acids have direct or indirect effects on the levels of specific neurotransmitters, they have the potential of helping to control some of the symptoms of ADHD.

Vitamin A

Protects the body against polluted air and is important for healthy eyesight and mucous membranes. It is needed during pregnancy and lactation. Helps the body build resistance to infections and disease; and is particularly important for healthy skin (high doses of synthetic vitamin A are prescribed for acne).



Vitamin B12

Vitamin B-12, known as cobalamin, methylcobalamin, and hydroxycobalamin,  boosts energy. It prevents  macrocytic anemia, a condition that prevents RBC's from carrying adequate amounts of oxygen and glucose;  causing fatigue, low energy, and  poor concentration. Vitamin B12 influences energy production, cognitive function, digestive health, blood cell production, and nervous system functioning.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient as it is known for its immune supporting effects. Vitamin C is used to treat a variety of health issues like colds, flus, and skin diseases. It serves as a healing mechanism, and anti-oxidant which promotes immune function, pro-oxidant  to combat cancer cells, and improves blood vessel integrity. Helps remove heavy metals, is an antioxidant, and helps brain & nervous system function.

Vitamin D-3

Improves mood, strengthens bones, regulates acid/base balance, boosts immune function, and supports muscle contraction.

Folic Acid & Folate

Folic acid or other vitamin B deficiencies have been linked with depression and high homocysteine levels, which impairs methylation needed for synthesis and metabolism of neurotransmitters regulating mood.

Folate (aka cobalamin, methylcobalamin, hydroxycobalamin) has many effects on the body such as energy production, cognitive function, digestive health, blood cell production, and nervous system functioning.

Magnesium

Magnesium is linked with lower levels of C-reactive protein. It helps soothe muscular tension and eases all types of pain including muscle and menstrual aches. Aids vitamin D.

Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids

     Essential fatty acids (EFA) are needed for normal sensory, cognitive, and motor function. Doco-sahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an EFA and essential for the growth and functional development of the brain in infants. DHA is also required for maintenance of normal brain function in adults. The inclusion of plentiful DHA in the diet improves learning ability, whereas deficiencies of DHA are associated with deficits in learning. DHA is taken up by the brain in preference to other fatty acids. 

Zinc

We need approximately 10-20mg daily as low body levels alter the taste of protein and lead to protein aversion. Deficiency of zinc increases hyperactivity, impulsivity, and impaired socialization in children with ADHD.
