Macro and Micronutrients

Macronutrients provide us with energy, allow our bodies to function correctly, and can even help prevent disease. There are three macronutrients: carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Each macronutrient performs vital roles in our bodies. Carbohydrates are the body’s preferred source of energy, as well as the primary energy source for the brain. Without carbohydrates, we may have issues maintaining body temperatures, keeping the heart beating, and even digesting food. Fats also provide the body with energy but assist in hormone production, cell growth, and many other vital functions. Proteins are necessary for keeping muscles, bones, and tissues healthy, amongst other responsibilities. Without an adequate intake of macronutrients, which will vary depending on factors such as age, fitness levels, existing health conditions, and more, your body may begin to struggle in varying ways.
Micronutrients, which are vitamins and minerals, don’t give energy but are needed for important chemical reactions in our bodies. Some examples are: Vitamin A, an essential factor in normal vision and immune function; Vitamin C, an antioxidant in your blood and cells; and Iron, which is required for synthesis of DNA. While there are many different micronutrients, a deficiency may cause you to feel tired or get sick frequently
Consult with the knowledgeable resource at Intrinsic Lotus who will assist in finding the right balance of both macro and micronutrients for you, your body, and your mind.



Enzymes are proteins that help speed up chemical reactions in our bodies, such as metabolism. There are thousands of enzymes, each with varying functions, but they may help with digestion, breathing, building muscle, nerve function, or ridding your body of toxins. Enzymes are normally received through diet, but certain health conditions may prevent that from occurring. Enzymes can be added to your diet through supplements. Although this may sound intimidating, enzyme supplements are very common. For example, an individual who struggles with lactose intolerance may take a lactase supplement. Lactase is simply the enzyme that breaks down the lactose sugar. This supplement, as well as other enzyme supplements for other conditions, helps the body perform the functions it can’t do by itself.

For thousands of years, many herbs have been used as medicine for physical and mental ailments.

Intrinsic Lotus offers a variety of herbs that have been used in various medicinal traditions for millennia. Here, you will find relief through natural remedies.


Pro & Prebiotics

Probiotics are a combination of beneficial bacteria that live in your body that work together to keep you healthy. Probiotics help maintain a healthy balance in your body, as well as support your immune function. This healthy bacteria helps you digest food, create vitamins, break down and absorb medications, and they keep harmful bacteria from making you sick. They can also help with issues such as diarrhea, constipation, IBS, UTIs, eczema, and other physical ailments. Probiotics may even alleviate some symptoms of depression.

Prebiotics are specialized plant fibers that help stimulate the growth of probiotics. Prebiotics are used to offer better digestive health, resulting in other mental and physical benefits. Some prebiotics may help improve calcium absorption, change how quickly the body processes carbohydrates, and support probiotic growth. They may even improve mental function, such as assisting with symptoms of depression and anxiety.

At Intrinsic Lotus, pro and prebiotics are offered so that you can find the right balance for your body and be the healthiest you can be.


Antioxidants function to protect your body from unstable atoms called free radicals that may cause negative effects in your body, such as cancer, vision loss, or other chronic conditions. There are hundreds of antioxidants, each with unique behaviors and properties. Some antioxidants may help with heart disease, lung disease, cognition, anxiety, and other conditions.

With the help available at Intrinsic Lotus, you can start taking the antioxidants that are right for you and your physical or mental ailments.



Anti-Inflammatories are used to help relieve pain and reduce swelling. While there are many over-the-counter anti-inflammatories that assist with various pain, inflammation, fever, arthritis, and even some autoimmune conditions, natural options have been used by various cultural traditions for thousands of years. Some natural anti-inflammatories are Omega-3 fatty acids, Zinc, and green tea.
