Hi,

The nutrients in food enable the cells in our bodies to perform their necessary functions.

Nutrients are the nourishing substances in food that are essential for the growth, development and maintenance of body functions .When nutrient intake does not regularly meet the nutrient needs dictated by the cell activity, the metabolic processes slow down or even stop.

In other words, nutrients give our bodies instructions about how to function. Thinking about food in this way gives us a view of nutrition that goes beyond calories or grams, good foods or bad foods

Most of us are sure that we are getting what we need in our diets and that we are healthy but the truth is that most of us are lacking in some vital nutrients. We assume that because we eat three square meals a day that we're getting what we need.. Health issues like anemia, osteoporosis, diabetes and plethora of other diseases have been associated with lack of nutrition.

A definite solution would be to have a certain level of knowledge about the food we eat necessary regarding the nutrient content, their anti-oxidant strength. Every effort should be made to have all the nutrients in right quantities, proportion, hygienic and free from harmful germs and chemicals.

Thank you.
