The difference between winning and losing in collegiate and professional levels of competitive sports often comes down to milliseconds or millimeters. Some experts believe that improvement in nutrition accounts for as much as three-fourths of the improvements in performance, in a well-trained athlete. Yet, a large number of athletes lack nutritional knowledge and often seek information about nutrition and dietary supplements from unqualified sources.
The NutrEval and ION Profiles allow clinicians to easily identify and target metabolic inefficiencies by assessing amino acids, fatty acids, vitamin status, nutrient elements, antioxidant needs, and oxidative stress. In addition, several biomarkers in these tests are suggestive of dysfunction in other body systems. The abundance of actionable information provided within these profiles make them excellent clinical tools in the care of the athletic patient.
In this one-hour, case-based webinar, the clinician will learn how to use the NutrEval to assess the nutritional status of the athletic patient. Important links between the NutrEval and other Genova profiles will also be addressed.
