Micro-nutrient strategy: getting ALL the correct vitamins and minerals for optimal health
Most diets and food advice tends to focus upon your macros (the macro-nutrients fats, protein and carbohydrates). Whist macros are important, you should instead focus on your micro-nutrient intake. Micro-nutrients are the vitamins, minerals and chemicals that are required in tiny amounts for your body to function at its best. Macros are the fuel that goes into your car, micro-nutrients are the oil that ensures smooth running. 25% of the enzymes in your body require a micro-nutrient as a co-factor.
We cover all the fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) together with the critical water soluble vitamins (the B vitamins and vitamin C). We also cover all the essential minerals, fatty acids and amino acids. If you are deficient in several of these micro-nutrients, you will become fat, weak and suffer chronic illnesses. When the body is in times of nutrient deficiency it will prioritise metabolic processes needed for survival. Your body will de-regulate non-survival processes such as cell repair and muscle maintenance. Virtually every disease and health problem can be traced back to a micro-nutrient deficiency. We cover 70 micro-nutrients and give an intake strategy for each that covers mainly food and some smart supplementation.
