1. Why Is Nutrition So Important?
A healthy nutritious diet provides the body with all essential nutrients required for cells, tissues and organs to function properly. Unfortunately, the modern diet is very poor on some essential micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) including vitamin D, vitamin E, magnesium and more. Nutritional deficiencies can lead to many health problems ranging from tiredness and lack of energy to serious problems related to the function of vital organs and lack of growth and development. According to Dr. Bruce Ames, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of California, Berkeley, most of the world’s population doesn’t get enough of one or more of the 30 essential vitamins and minerals.
