Nutrients explained

  • Nutrients in fresh, whole foods can help the body survive in today’s world.
  • They give the body the strength and energy to repair and restore every day.
  • Without nutrients, the body runs out of energy faster over time. It is like a car running low on fuel, oil and water. It becomes overdue for a service.
  • The body can become tired and suffer when pushed hard to keep going. It can become sick. They need fresh foods for the nutrients to repair and restore the body. 
  • Processed foods have little or no nutrients. They are not good quality fuel for the body.
  • Fresh food with the important nutrients is better for your body, mind and soul.
