Good nutrition plays an important role in your health and can prevent many major causes of death, disability, and illness such as coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, atherosclerosis, obesity, some forms of cancer, Type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, dental caries, gallbladder disease, dementia, and nutritional anaemia.
We need nutritious sources of food for energy, protein, essential fats, vitamins, and minerals to live, repair and function properly. When you choose to consume the right foods for your body's needs you can maintain your immune system, boost energy, delay the effects of ageing, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, increase your focus and by adopting health foods, positively affect your mood.
A wide variety of foods will provide all the right nutrients in the correct balance keeping you in good health. There are government guidelines which are designed with an average healthy person in mind and to fit the masses, not the individual. These guidelines are a useful tool if you fit that criteria. However, if you are at greater risk of developing, or have already developed a health issue, then there is a greater need to make food work for you.
Everyone is different in how we interact, consume and digest food; Tailored Nutrition was created with the individual in mind.
