Supplements

What are supplements?

Supplements come in the form of pills, capsules, powders for drinks, or edible bars. They typically contain micronutrients like vitamins and minerals that you can normally find in the foods you eat. However, you might need supplements alongside your diet if you have dietary restrictions or if you need more of a certain nutrient for better bodily functioning. 

The team at Advanced Health Solutions LLC can help you decide which supplements you need. They also offer BioTE® nutraceuticals to help balance your hormones with high-quality supplements. Your provider can inform you of the benefits you’ll get from taking the supplements you need.

Do I need to take supplements?

There are several reasons why the team at Advanced Health Solutions LLC might tell you to take supplements. Not everyone needs them because you can get all of the nutrients you need through a well-rounded diet. However, you might need to take supplements alongside your diet for these reasons:


  • You follow a vegan diet
  • You’re pregnant
  • You’re over 50 years old
  • You’re a developing child
  • You don’t get enough sun exposure


To be sure that you’re getting the nutrients you need through your supplements, you should describe your lifestyle, current health, and medical history to your provider in detail. It’s important to remember that supplements alone can’t replace a nutritious diet, so you should still focus on eating healthy while you take supplements.

How should I take my supplements?

When you get supplements, the team at Advanced Health Solutions LLC tells you exactly how and when to take them to get the most out of them. While taking supplements, you should:


  • Take only your recommended dose
  • Learn as much as you can about your supplements
  • Let your provider know about any impending surgeries or procedures
  • Discuss other supplements you already use before starting a new one
  • Read the label and the instructions for use
  • Store them where children can’t get to them


If you have any questions about your supplements or the effect they have on your body, be sure to contact Advanced Health Solutions LLC for the guidance you need.
