Good nutrition can help prevent disease and promote health. There are six categories of nutrients that the body needs to acquire from food: protein, carbohydrates, fat, fibers, vitamins and minerals, and water.
Protein supplies amino acids to build and maintain healthy body tissue. There are 20 amino acids considered essential because the body must have all of them in the right amounts to function properly. Twelve of these are manufactured in thebody but the other eight amino acids must be provided by the diet. Foods from animal sources such as milk or eggs oftencontain all these essential amino acids while a variety of plant products must be taken together to provide all these necessary protein components.
There are 33 elements you should be aware of to keep your body functioning at the proper levels. If you would like to know if you are properly balanced, take this test:
