Health Essential #3: Maximized Quality Nutrition

Nutritional science that sustains well-being, disease prevention, and ideal weight.

The food we eat fuels the trillions of cells that control our heart beat, our oxygen intake, our digestive tract, and every other complex process of our body. What exactly can we do to make sure our body's life supply is running on high? We must maximize the quality of the nutrients we  consume!

Fuel Your Body the Right Way

Unfortunately, most Americans run their bodies on convenient, processed, and chemical laden foods. Due to the fast paced world we live in, many consumers feel it is easier to visit their local McDonalds or Burger King than to shop and cook. The bad news is that it comes at a price. Our bodies were not created to run off of French fries and Krispy Kreme donuts, and this new diet of convenience is posing a serious threat to healthy cell life.

Essentially, we are what we ingest, and the sugary colas, coffee drinks, and artificial "juices" are causing just as much distress on our bodies as the fast food down the street. Dousing your organs and cells with these beverages and other processed foods does not allow them to properly function and attain optimal performance. If a fish cannot survive in a bowl filled with those types of beverages, what makes you think your cells can?

Eliminating or reducing processed foods and replacing them with whole foods rich in nutrients is one way to ensure cell performance and survival.
