No crutches needed to walk after supplementing nutrients
Jiayou Zhang, the chief physician of the Department of Neurology of Chimei Hospital, pointed out that from the perspective of nutritional medicine, the key to good health is to keep the cells in a normal metabolic state. In addition to enough rest and exercise, it is necessary to give the cells the basic nutrients needed for metabolism. In the past, the nutritional problem was mainly insufficient calories; but now the problem lies in uneven or poor nutrition.
According to the survey of the national nutrition and health status from 2013 to 2016, the most severely deficient vitamins in Chinese dietary intake are fat-soluble vitamin D and vitamin E; calcium deficiency is the most serious in mineral intake, followed by magnesium, zinc and iron. , Sodium intake is too high.
At present, the status of serum vitamins and serum minerals of Chinese people is evaluated from the viewpoint of preventive medicine, combined with the prevalence of deficiency and marginal deficiency, to assess the status of vitamin D insufficiency in Chinese people. The insufficiency rate of men aged 13 to 44 and over 45 is nearly 60% and 4 Women are as high as 80% and 60% respectively. The problem of uneven nutrition among Chinese people is worthy of attention.
Zhang Jiayou said that “micronutrient” screening can help Chinese people find answers to their health problems. Through nutrient supplement intervention, symptoms can be improved.
