Good nutrition is the foundation for good health. Every person needs the four basic nutrients: water, protein, carbohydrate and fats in their daily diet as well as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
As Hippocrates said all those years ago "Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food"
Fresh seasonal food and produce provides us with the essential nutrients needed for our bodies to function optimally and maintain homeostasis.
However due to mis-guided food choices and every day stresses such as; physical, environmental, chemical, emotional and mental stress, our bodies aren’t always able to keep up with the nutrient demands that are needed to keep systems in the body running optimally. The effect of these stresses may eventually cause a deficiency or an excess in vital nutrients.
