What Should I Eat? Nutritional Supplements

I can not emphasize enough about the importance of vitamins and micronutrients for our body's health. Of the thousands of micronutrients that the body utilizes every day, there are a select few that bear more importance than others. Over the next few weeks, I will be discussing a few of the most important supplements to take, and provide you material to understand if you could be suffering from deficiencies.

Vitamin D: Vitamin D acts more like a hormone than a vitamin in the body, as it transfers ingested calcium to the blood. We gather vitamin D from the sun on our skin, and if you live north of the Mason Dixon Line, you are most likely deficient from late September to April. Vitamin D is essential for immune response, bone strength, weight loss, and overall wellness of the human body.

Common symptoms and diseases that have been clinically proven to be associated with low serum levels of Vitamin D include:

  • Weight Gain
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Chronic Sinus Infection
  • Ear Infection
  • Premenstrual Syndrome
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Muscle Pain
  • Cognitive Dysfunction
  • Osteoporosis
  • Rickets
If you have suffered from any of these symptoms or illnesses, take the Vitamin D Deficiency Quiz. New-Start Health Center will guide you through a healthier lifestyle.



Magnesium: Magnesium is one of the most vital micronutrients in the human body. Magnesium and calcium work together to contract and relax muscles in the body. Serum levels of magnesium and calcium need to remain about the same level, but this is often overlooked by most health professionals. Every person, especially females, have heard that they need to supplement with calcium, and most of us do. We drink fortified milk, we take Centrum, we eat Tums, etc. As we all increase our serum calcium levels, we often cause an imbalance of our calcium:magnesium ratio. This imbalance has been linked to sudden heart attacks, fibromyalgia, and even is responsible for insulin sensitivity, aka Diabetes.

Common symptoms and diseases that have been clinically proven to be associated with low levels of magnesium include:

  • Migraines
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Heart Attack
  • Diabetes
  • Weight Gain
  • Anxiety
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic Illness
  • Fatigue
  • Elevated Blood Pressue
  • Muscle ache
  • Premenstrual Syndrome
  • Constipation
  • Sleep-disorders

If you have suffered from any of these symptoms or illnesses, take the Magnesium Deficiency Quiz. New-Start Health Center will guide you through a healthier lifestyle.
