Nutritional Supplements for Better Health

nutrametrix_isotonixPeople may need to take dietary supplements to augment their nutrition for optimal health. There are many choices in the marketplace, and some are higher quality than others. In some cases, the form of the supplements is such that much of the vitamin or mineral content passes right through the digestive system.

Van Amberg Chiropractic made an exhaustive search of the available information and identified nutraMetrix Isotonix ® supplements as the line that meets our high standards. The isotonic suspension allows nutrients to pass directly into the small intestine and absorb rapidly into the bloodstream to be utilized by the body with very little waste. The company’s stringent quality controls reassure us that you are getting the best value for your money.

We ultimately made the decision to carry a line of nutraMetrix Isotonix supplements so that our patients could conveniently access the important nutrients they are seeking.

Some of the products our patients have found helpful include:

nutraMetrix Isotonix ® Vitamin D with K2:

(containing Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol)5000 IU and Vitamin K2 45 mcg)

Natural sources of fat-soluble vitamin D include cod liver oil, salmon, mackerel and tuna, and exposure to sunlight. However, many people have vitamin D deficiencies. nutraMetrix provides a combination of vitamin D and K2 because they work together to support calcium absorption and utilization.

The inclusion of Vitamin K2, which is a fat-soluble vitamin found in meat, eggs, dairy and natto, is especially crucial for women with low bone density. The body stores very little of this essential nutrient which supports proper calcium utilization. Vitamin K is rapidly depleted without regular dietary intake. A K-dependent protein called Gas6, which is thought to regulate cellular activities, is found throughout the nervous system, heart, lungs, stomach, kidneys and cartilage.

Benefits of improved intake of vitamin D and K2:

  • Promotes normal bone mineral density
  • Promotes calcium absorption and retention
  • Promotes healthy arteries
  • Supports immune health
  • Promotes normal regulation of T-cell function
  • Supports the modulation of many genes responsible for encoding proteins that regulate normal cell cycle activity
  • Helps maintain bone health
  • Helps maintain bone mass by supporting normal osteoclast activity
  • Promotes elasticity of blood vessels
  • Helps maintain normal blood pressure through the healthy expression of the gene encoding renin

Who might benefit from vitamin D supplements:

  • Women with low bone density have been found to be deficient in vitamin K
  • People who lack enough exposure to sunlight or have reduced skin synthesis of vitamin D
  • People who do not have sufficient vitamin D dietary intake
  • People with impaired intestinal absorption and reduced metabolism to active forms of vitamin D by the kidneys
  • These conditions typically increase with aging

Consequences of insufficient vitamin D:

  • Weak bones
  • Muscle weakness
  • Less support for neuromuscular function
  • Less support for immune function
