Natural foods are filled with the nutrients you need for life. This includes vitamins such as vitamins A, B, C and D, minerals such as magnesium and calcium, as well as macronutrients (large nutrients) which are include carbohydrates, fats and proteins. All of the nutrients and macronutrients are important for keeping your body running as efficiently as possible.
Nutrients can help your body regulate things such as sweating to regulate your temperature. They help you maintain a healthy blood pressure and affect your thyroid function.
Carbohydrates are the main source of “fuel” your body uses for energy. Proteins, fats and minerals are the building blocks used for creating new tissues.
There is one more nutrient that is incredibly important: Water. Water helps to transport nutrients to your cells where they can be processed. It also helps to remove waste products from the body.
