Do Multivitamins Help You Lose Weight?


You’ve probably heard your family, doctors, or teachers tell you about the importance of vitamins and minerals in your diet. One question that gets asked often is whether these vitamins can do anything for weight loss.  The short answer is yes, but it’s also a complicated answer. While vitamins can play a role in losing weight, they do so indirectly and behind-the-scenes. For many people, vitamins will make a good “workout buddy” when trying to lose weight, but they won’t be able to achieve that feat alone.  With that being said, let’s explain a little further how multivitamins can help you lose weight.  Multivitamins Improve Metabolism If you’re trying to lose weight, your main goal is going to be burning...

Is Your Body Getting Enough Magnesium?


Magnesium is an essential part of our body’s chemical reactions. In fact, it’s essential to more than 300 biochemical reactions in our body that happen simultaneously. For those that are deficient in this mineral, proper supplementation will be recommended.  What does magnesium do for us, anyway? Not only will it help convert food into energy, but it will aid in the creation of proteins, muscle movements, regulating neurotransmitters, and repairing/forming new DNA and RNA. Outside of that, magnesium can indirectly help your athletic performance, fight depression, lower blood pressure, promote a healthy heartbeat, and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Nutrigenomics, Epigenetics & MTHFR


Nutrigenomics and epigenetics are two fancy words that have circulated around the world of medicine for decades. If you see a functional or an integrative health practitioner, you may be familiar with one or both of these words. Let’s break it down into simpler terms:  Epigenetics is a term that is used to identify how the environment interacts with our genes. Epigenetic research has shown that our lifestyle choices, our environment, and our exposure to toxins can actually impact how genes are expressed. Genes that are expressed explain some of our differences, including our individual vulnerabilities to certain health conditions.  Nutrigenomics is the study of how nutrition affects the expression of genes.

SSRIs, L-MethylFolate and Pregnancy


Maternal depression is not something that should be taken lightly. The World Health Organization reports that ten percent of all pregnant women are depressed. With depression being so common in today’s society, it is important to understand how it can manifest in women. Depression can be broken into two categories depending on the severity of symptoms. Major depressive disorder is severe and is categorized by persistent feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness. Persistent depressive disorder is also a chronic form of depression, but it is considered more mild. Studies have looked at the brains of depressed individuals and have noticed lower levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin. This observation has led doctors to prescribe depressed patients different types of SSRIs...

Low Folate Levels and ADHD


Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD) has been defined by the medical community as a neurologically-based disorder. When disorders are neurological in origin, this means they typically affect the brain in addition to the nerves around the body. Unfortunately, brain-based disorders (and psychiatry in general) are areas of medicine that are typically studied in isolation. “Psychiatry” is a separate practice on its own. It is rare for psychiatrists to work alongside functional and integrative medicine practitioners. Additionally, some psychiatrists can be quick to prescribe brain-based medications (stimulants, SSRIs, among others) before looking into the potential root cause of the problem. How Does the Body Communicate with the Brain? The brain and the body communicate through an intricate system of neurotransmitters. According to...
