Are You Missing Something From Your Diet?

Dr. Antoine Geffrard and RMS Consultations encourage you to fuel your body with healthy food. Come see us in Southfield, MI, to find out what's missing from your diet.

Examining your diet and making adjustments to get the proper nutrients can transform your health. Most people are lacking some nutrients in their diet. Read about just some of the most common things we are lacking and what foods you can get them from.

Calcium is important for your bones especially as you age. Low-fat dairy foods are some of the best sources of calcium. If you have a dairy allergy or are lactose intolerant, try dark green leafy vegetables, nuts, and seeds. There are also many calcium-fortified products available.

Vitamin C isn't just important for your immune health, it actually helps repair cells in your body. Citrus fruits have a lot of vitamin C and so do dark, leafy greens, berries, and melons.

Potassium promotes strong bones and is important for your nerves and muscles. Bananas are high in potassium but you can also get potassium from potatoes, milk, and orange juice, and dark green vegetables like spinach and broccoli.

Vitamin A is important for your immune system and your vision. Some food sources of vitamin A are eggs, orange and yellow fruits and vegetables, and dark leafy greens.

Iron is an essential mineral that helps transport oxygen to cells throughout your whole body. You get iron from lean meats and plant sources like soybeans and spinach.

You need vitamin D to help your body absorb calcium and promote bone growth. A few food sources are eggs and fish, and there are also many vitamin D-fortified products.

Lacking any of these nutrients can cause various health issues, and revamping your diet is a natural way to get the right nutrients and improve your health. Take the time to assess your diet, and call Dr. Antoine Geffrard and RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, at (248) 663-5353.
