If we want our bodies to function properly, there are certain nutrients that we cannot afford to go without.
Foundational Nutrients: the three types
Here are three building blocks that are essential in forming what is referred to as “foundational nutrition.”
- Macronutrients: protein, fat, and carbohydrates
- Micronutrients: vitamins and minerals
- Phytonutrients: organic components found in fruits and vegetables
To have optimal health, we have to feed our bodies all three types of nutrients Every Day.
According to a Global Phytonutrient Report, 80% of Americans are not getting the fruits and veggies they need from diet alone.
Building a solid foundation
Think of your body as a house. The building blocks play an essential role in providing the key nutrients that affect your well-being. They help keep things running smoothly.
Protein helps us grow and repair ourselves.
Vitamins and minerals perform hundreds of roles that keep the foundation strong, and help sustain life.
Phytonutrients help protect the integrity of the bricks and mortar by supporting vital systems and fighting against cell damage.
Omega-3 fatty acids help support the health of our nervous and cardiovascular systems that keep our bodies running.
Most of us can’t get all the nutrients we need simply from the food we eat. And that means just about anyone can benefit from a foundational supplement. The simplest way to discover your basic nutritional needs in order to build a proper foundation is to take a scientifically proven personalized nutrition assessment.
