How This Helps
A balanced diet is the most important factor in the promotion of a healthy body. The body builds up and maintain healthy cells, tissues, glands and organs with the help of various nutrients. The body will fail to perform its functions, be it metabolic, hormonal, mental, physical or chemical if it does not get specific nutrients.
The other essential factor is that, these nutrients are appropriately utilised by the body. Nutrition is also of utmost importance in the cure of diseases. No illness can not be cured if one is particular with what they eat and when they eat. The common cause of weakened immune system or lower resistance in the body is caused by adapting to a poor nutritional pattern. The body is built in such a way that it can fight infections on its own but it is not always the case with many. After feeding the body with wrong food stuff, the body is again forced to digest 24/7. No time for healing or utilising the nutrients.
It is believed that at least 45 chemical components and elements are needed by the human cells. The two most essential nutrients being oxygen and water. These two are like a couple, for oxygen to be transported it must move with water, the two are inseparable. Often people are ignorant of drinking of water and look for alternatives, some will crave for a coke/coffee/tea instead of drinking water. Some of these beverage are never the best to substitute taking of water because these products do not add any water to the system instead they subtract the little water in the system. The effects are detrimental, more diseases and more complications because the body has been deprived to get enough oxygen and water.
The other 43 are classified into five main groups, namely, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, minerals and vitamins. All the 45 nutrients are vitally important and they work together. Absence of any of them will result in disease and eventually death.
Undersupply of various nutrients attribute to diseases. The undersupply are a result of various factors such as the intense processing and refining of foods. It is important to make note of the later because our bodies need to be well nourished.
