Nutrition Q & A

What are the benefits of good nutrition?

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:

  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Reduced cholesterol
  • Increased energy
  • Reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other diseases
  • An increase in the body’s ability to fight off illness

How can I improve my nutrition?

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:

Eating the rainbow

Fruits and vegetables of different colors contain nutrients that can increase your body’s overall health. Adding an assortment of colorful vegetables to your salads and eating plenty of fruit throughout the day gives your nutrition a boost.

Eating whole grains and healthy proteins

Whole grain pasta, brown rice, and whole grain bread are healthy and tasty substitutions that can help improve your health. Choose lean meats, poultry, and fish over other cuts of meat for better nutrition.

Can I use vitamin and mineral supplements?

Yes. Vitamin and mineral supplements like Metagenics can help provide an all-natural boost to your nutrition. You can replace meals with Metagenics’ vitamin-packed protein shakes and smoothies, and take their specially-formulated vitamin and mineral supplements to maintain good nutrition.
