WHY NUTRITION?

Remember food is medicine. One of the major problems
affecting modern health is over consumption and under
nutrition. Research has been undertaken on the effect of
nutrition on our health and how foods affect our gene
expression. It shows your body may require more than what
is normally required depending on your genetic make-up,
or you may be prone to certain deficiencies because of
lifestyle factors, or an overly-processed diet. Nutrients matter
because without them we can’t properly use the energy we
have eaten. Put simply, if you eat high nutrient foods you
will be healthier; if you eat low nutrient food you will be less
healthy. There are 32 essential nutrients that we need from
food. If we don’t eat them, we don’t get them, it’s as simple
as that. Our advice is the same for virtually all conditions: Eat
quality protein at each meal, a very small amount of grains,
at least 5+ vegetables and fruits a day, eat your choice of
fermented food daily, eat something raw daily, eat quality
fats only, and drink water every day. Remember food is medicine.
