Why are nutrients important?

Nutrients make life worth living.

A healthy quality-of-life means more energy, a better mood, mental clarity, and physical fitness over a lifetime. Nutrients improve quality-of-life and prevent suffering from diseases like diabetes, cancer, hypertension, and being overweight or obese. Nutrients make the experience of life joyful.

 

THE KEY TO GREAT HEALTH… READ ON!

 

The human body is made up of more than 37 trillion living, working cells. All cells require nutrients every second of every day to do work – but cells don’t work alone – they work as a team.

 

Cells work together to form tissues like muscle and skin. Tissues work together to create organs like the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys. Your organs work with other organs to create organ systems like your circulatory system, nervous system, and respiratory system. And the organ systems work together; they make up the human body.

 

So the story of healthy, human life comes down to cells, and the nutrients they require to make life great. Because, when your cells are healthy, tissues, organs, organ systems, and you are healthy.

 

ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS PREVENT DISEASE

 

Every system in your body requires essential nutrients every day. Each system has a vital job, and you can read about each below. Imagine how healthy you’ll feel when these systems have essential nutrients and are working at their peak level.

 

Circulatory system

Diseases of the Circulatory System: High Cholesterol, Cardiovascular Disease, High Blood Pressure (hypertension).

 

Digestive system

The Digestive System is made up of the mouth, esophagus, stomach and intestines. It has mechanical and chemical actions that make nutrients available and eliminates waste from the body.

Diseases of the Nervous System: Poor Brain Development and Cognitive Function in children,  Dementia including Alzheimer’s.

 

Renal system / Urinary system

The Renal System is where the kidneys filter blood, removing waste and keeping essential nutrients inside the body. Diseases of the Renal System: Bladder Infections, Chronic Kidney Disease.

 

ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS MUST COME FROM YOUR DIET
