Many labels have claims on what there products contain, and some of the amazing benefits that you can get from a plant that only grows on top of mountains once every 20 yrs (no offense intended). While some of these exotic elixirs may be a great addition to your diet, you may be suprised to find that much of the wonder supplements available today are not essential. So what is essential? Essential nutrients are nutrients that your body cannot produce itself, but needs to function properly; this means they are essential for you to consume!
What Happens When You Don’t get Essential Nutrients?
You lose function. You may not notice it and it may take years of repeated malnutrition for a problem to manifest itself, but you are creating new cells everyday and those cells require the proper raw materials to duplicate themselves. Many theories exist that improper raw materials during cell division is what leads to premature aging and the onset of chronic illnesses.
Find a way to include essential nutrients in your diet everyday and the result will be a healthier, younger looking, and happier feeling you.
