Nutrition

There are many reasons to choose natural products over processed foods. Natural products are often more nutritious, as they retain all the vitamins and minerals present in their natural state. They can also be easier to digest, as the body is able to break down natural products more easily than processed foods. What's more, natural products often contain antioxidants and other nutrients that can improve overall health. Finally, natural products are generally considered to be more environmentally friendly than processed foods, as their production requires less energy and resources.

Nutrients, the role of the dietician and nutritionist

Nutritionists use ideas from molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics to understand how nutrients affect the human body. Nutrition also focuses on what people can do through their food choices, both to reduce their risk of disease and to solve the problems they may encounter if they consume too much or too little, due to an imbalance in the needs met by food groups such as protein sources, notably meat products, carbohydrates containing whole grains such as rice and potatoes, etc.
