27: How to Identify and Correct Nutrient Deficiencies | Chris Kresser M.S., L.Ac.

Did you know that nutrient deficiencies are common even in people eating a healthy diet—thanks to declining soil quality, a growing toxic burden, and other challenges in the modern world? The human body needs over 40 micronutrients to function properly—yet most Americans don’t get enough of several of these vitamins and minerals. Today, I’m excited to take a deeper dive into this topic with one of my most trusted sources when it comes to nutrition and dietary research, Chris Kresser, M.S., L.Ac. Chris is the co-founder of the California Center for Functional Medicine, the founder of Kresser Institute, the host of the top-ranked health podcast Revolution Health Radio, the creator of ChrisKresser.com, and the New York Times best-selling author of The Paleo Cure and Unconventional Medicine. Chris is one of the most respected clinicians and educators in the fields of Functional Medicine and ancestral health and has trained over 2,000 clinicians and health coaches from over 50 countries in his unique approach. He recently launched Adapt Naturals, a supplement line designed to add back in what the modern world has squeezed out and help people perform and feel their best.  What you'll learn from this episode:What is nutrient density & why are we nutrient deficient?Why the concept of RDA (recommended dietary allowance) is problematicHow to discern fact from fiction when it comes to reading clinical studiesCan we "over-supplement" & is nutrient toxicity something we need to be concerned about?Specific nutrient deficiencies associated with chronic diseaseThe optimal diet from a nutrient density standpointChris' thoughts on the carnivore dietHow to take supplements for optimal absorption& So much more!Resources:Chris Kresser Website | Instagram | Youtube | FacebookRevolution Health Radio PodcastYour Personal Paleo DietWhy Quality Trumps Quantity When it Comes to DietMoving from a Paleo Diet to Paleo TemplateChris' new supplement line - Adapt Naturals (code wellnstrong for 15% off)Join the WellnStrong mailing list for exclusive content here!Follow Jacqueline: Instagram Pinterest Youtube To access notes from the show & full transcripts, head over to WellnStrong's Podcast Page
