The sole purpose of food is to feed the body the nutrients that it needs to survive and thrive. The human body is designed to grow, repair, defend itself, and live long. It needs nutrients daily, the right ones in the right amounts, and in general, the more often, the better. Nutrient’s foods are nutrient-dense and exceed 100 nutrients in every meal, while poor-quality foods are low in nutrients.
We use the USDA Food Composition Databases to determine the nutrient counts in all our products.
Most of us do not get enough nutrients, which must come from our diet. To live, our bodies need oxygen, water, and nutrients. Without nutrients, we have early cell death and weakening of the body, causing body parts to wear down, not work properly, and cause sickness. Nutrients support growth and regeneration of worn out cells, healing, and the creation of compounds such as hormones to support life.
Obtaining inadequate amounts of nutrients from the diet leaves the body deficient in what it needs to function optimally, leading to early and rapid aging and an increased risk of disease, including what we all want to avoid: chronic disease.
