Nutrition can be a tricky subject. So much is written about it and opinions differ and of course every body has different needs. Our advice is to eat as many fresh, organic fruit and vegetables as you can – 8 portions per day is ideal. This way you are maximising the amount of nutrient rich fuel for your body and minimising sugar and junk food. It is important to go for fresh food, to vary your meals adequately and to avoid unnecessary additives as much as possible. In addition, healthy fats are important to include in your daily diet. If you’re buying processed food, take the time to look at the ingredients and make conscious choices.
Everything starts with the right nutrition
The orthomolecular starting point is that food must ensure that our body is supplied with the necessary micronutrients. Only then can the body function properly.
What is a healthy diet
Everyone is unique
There is no one diet that works perfectly for everyone. The food you eat should suit YOU and that depends on many factors, including what stage of life you are at, what your lifestyle is like and really importantly what sits well in your digestion.
People vary greatly in what they can and can’t digest. To take the best care of our body, not only is the quality of the food important, but also the functioning of the digestive system. There are many reasons why our digestive systems might be compromised. When this is the case, liposomal supplements can be very useful as they bypass the digestive tract and deliver the nutrition directly into the cells.
