One might wonder why JumpstartMD would recommend individualized vitamin supplementation on a healthy weight and wellness journey founded on a nutrient dense, whole food nutritional guide path?
That’s a good question and one with multiple reasonable and evidence-based answers:
For one, it’s well known that levels of essential micronutrients and vitamins decline as we age, making supplementation particularly important at mid-life and beyond.
Second, The Institute of Medicine and others have reported that most of the U.S. population is below the estimated average requirement for one or more vitamins and minerals.
Third, vitamin supplementation during weight loss may also minimize cravings spurred by micronutrient deficiencies that override satiety signals and specific supplements are also tied to improved weight loss outcomes.
Lastly, targeted vitamin and micronutrient supplementation in combination with nutrient dense real food intake, ensures members have the micronutrients, minerals, and vitamins needed to thrive, defend themselves against diseases associated with aging, and promote longevity proteins.
What Oral and Injectable Options are Available at JumpstartMD?
In short, individualized supplementation and select pharmacologic support in combination with healthy lifestyle changes at JumpstartMD can not only promote our member’s weight loss outcomes, quality of life, and well-being but extend their healthspan and lifespan.
What curated supplementation options exist at JumpstartMD and how are they beneficial?
JumpstartMD micronutrient supplementation comes in two forms: oral support packs and supplements and injectables. Both are targeted to address specific common life challenges and medical indications our members face. Injectables have the advantage of greater “bioavailability” (translation: higher blood levels) by injecting those vitamins and micronutrients to be directly taken up by the blood stream without encountering barriers in oral absorption through the gastrointestinal tract.
For oral support packs, there are 5 broad offerings that have been individually curated with high quality supplement ingredients designed to address common health and lifestyle challenges our members face.
Oral supplementation options include our:
- Weight Loss Support Pack
- Sleep Support Pack
- Stress Support Pack
- Immunity Support Pack
Injectable supplementation options with improved bioavailability include:
- ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid), MetabolizeME
- Glutathione, DetoxME
- NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Daily Essentials Support Pack
- Dinucleotide), RevitalizeME
- Methionine, inositol, choline (MIC) + B1, B2, B5, Methylated B12, and Carnitine, EnergizeME
- Vitamin D, DefendME
- Amino Acid Blend, RestoreME
Packs and injectables can also be combined
Each support pack and injectable have distinct benefits and indications that your clinician can discuss in the light of your lifestyle and medical history. Packs and injectables can also be combined as desired.
Injectable and oral supplementation are a complement to our service offerings
Injectable and oral supplementation are not a panacea but a complement to our additional service offerings – medical weight management, hormonal and cardiometabolic health, and now vitamin and micronutrient supplementation – that can improve weight loss, health and quality of life outcomes. In the end, vitamin and micronutrient supplementation is simply one more means to help Jumpstart your healthy, happy, long, and well-lived life.
