Nutrition refers to the absorption of the vitamins and minerals from food. Some foods are packed with the vitamins and minerals your body needs while others have little to no nutritional value at all.
Non-nutritional foods can make you feel sluggish or gain weight. Some foods may even contain elements that contribute to the onset of illness.
You can achieve good nutrition by eating foods rich in vitamins and minerals. Eating a balanced diet containing sufficient amounts of fruits, vegetables, dairy, and protein can help your body fight off illness and stay robust and healthy.
Other benefits of good nutrition include:
Maintaining healthy habits is the most important thing you can do to improve your nutrition. You can do this by changing your diet to include foods that are high in vitamins and minerals. Vitamin and mineral supplements can also help you achieve better nutrition when integrated into a healthy diet.
You can also improve your nutrition by:
