Nutrition screening provides a detailed analysis of your current diet, including both macro- and micronutrients. All results are compared against the NRVs (Nutrient Reference Values) based on your age, gender, life stage and activity levels.
Why is nutrition screening an important step?
Many people are nutrient deficient and yes, even if you are doing “everything right” in the nutrition department. Coupled with stress, physical activity, illnesses and medications, we are at risk. When our bodies are not getting the right nutrients in the right amounts, our body fails to function optimally. When that happens, we wouldn’t be looking and feeling our best.
Nutrient deficiencies manifest itself in many different ways, often subtle making it hard to detect. Common examples are:
- Fatigue/low energy
- Poor concentration
- Mood swings
- Cracked lips
These are just some of the indications that you may be deficient in one or more nutrients. Of course not all of these are nutrition related, but the possibility is definitely there.
Already on a nutrient supplement? Are you taking it with good reason? Remember that over supplementation of certain nutrients can be just as harmful to the body.
