Our Favourite Supplements
At Runners Health Hub we advocate FOOD FIRST, however there are times when a supplement is required for ergogenic performance or for optimal nutrition, many of which we have discussed in our podcast She Runs Eats Performs.
Nutritional supplements can support an individual when they contain appropriate (and safe) levels of nutrients in a therapeutic dose and bio-effective form.
Is it safe to take supplements whilst I’m on medication?

Our Favourite Nutritional Screening Tests
Nutritional Screening Tests may be used to gain more insight into your health status by
- Evaluating how the physiology of your body is functioning
- Assessing your nutritional status
- Identifying factors contributing to health issues
Test results and analysis may assist in developing a more targeted approach to supporting your health.
A test may involve a blood, saliva, urine or stool sample.
Dependant on the style of test you may be able to collect the sample at home or you may be asked to attend a health clinic to provide samples.
Some tests will require interpretation by a qualified nutritionist.
If you would like advice on which nutritional test(s) would be most appropriate for you please BOOK A CALL with us, we are happy to advise.
