Nutrients for Health

Being healthy does not mean abstaining from all types of appetising food. It is about developing sensible eating habits and maintaining the balance between eating for joy and eating for health. In order to live healthily and in physical and mental harmony, it is essential to protect ourselves against diseases. We, therefore, have to be extremely careful about the type of food we eat.

Nature for one has its own way of giving us the most beneficial nutrients. As long as we do not ignore the basic requirements for sustenance, in line with nature's gift of healthy living, most of the problems of today will not even arise. They start only when we deviate from nature in order to please our taste buds. If we reduce eating food for pleasure and taste, and increase our intake of natural foods, then we are already on our way towards healthy living.

A carefully planned diet should be rich in the required proteins, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and vitamins. Nutrients are important for maintaining a healthy mind and body. They are interdependent and work together for the well-being of our body. For example, the healing quality of vitamin A is enhanced by the intake of vitamin E. Lecithin helps vitamins A, D, E and K as well as fat to be absorbed by the body. It is important to know the nutrient supplements required, their functions in our body and their source for a truly healthy diet.
