What is included in the Nordic Strong Health Package by Valida Health?

The package offered by Valida Health in collaboration with Nordic Strong includes a look into the levels of cholesterol markers, triglycerides, long-term blood sugar, blood percentage, and testosterone (for men) and iron for women. It's a comprehensive health package that supports heart health, improved performance, diabetes screening, and male sex hormone.

Below, you can read more details about the specifics and why they are important to our body. 

Blood Percentage: Hemoglobin binds oxygen and transports it around the body, delivering the oxygen to the body's organs and muscles. Low hemoglobin levels are, per definition, anemia, and there are many causes for anemia. Many symptoms of anemia and low hemoglobin levels are due to oxygen shortage, e.g., palpitations, breathlessness, dizziness, and fatigue.

Cholesterol: LDL, HDL, and triglycerides: Elevated cholesterol can negatively affect health and is one of the main causes of cardiovascular disease. High cholesterol is not a disease in itself but is a condition that can lead to arterial narrowing and increase the risk of blood clots. Therefore, it is important to regularly monitor your cholesterol levels, as high cholesterol increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Often, a shift to a healthier lifestyle can lower high cholesterol by 10 to 15 percent.

Long-term blood sugar: A measurement of long-term blood sugar shows the level of blood sugar over the past 2-3 months. Long-term blood sugar is a risk indicator for the development of diabetes and cardiovascular disease (prediabetes).

Iron: Four out of ten women of childbearing age suffer from iron deficiency. The most common cause is too little iron in the diet. Women with heavy menstrual periods are especially at risk due to increased iron loss. During pregnancy, the need for iron increases due to the growth and development of the uterus and fetus. The first signs of iron deficiency are often paleness and fatigue. Symptoms are often overlooked initially because they are not very pronounced. Later symptoms include reduced immune system, shortness of breath, and dizziness. 

Testosterone: All men experience a decrease in testosterone production over the years. Research shows that testosterone is involved in the aging process and decreased testosterone affects libido, drive, strength, muscle mass, and mental stamina. Current research also shows that testosterone treatment for men in well-considered doses under careful supervision is a safe and often effective treatment.

  • The effects of testoterone treatment for men who are lacking the hormone include: Improved mood, energy, and concentration
  • Increased muscle mass and strength
  • Improved erection and libido
  • Strengthened bones
