secrets to understanding nutrition

Nutrition is the science that describes the biochemical reactions, and levels of concentration of the essential nutrients that our body needs. Nutrition is concerned with the synthetic (there gathered) components of food in such a way that an organism remains healthy.

We do not consider nutrition as a science, but as a descriptive way of describing what an organism enjoys, grows, and develops. We must include nutrition in our search for improvements to our health. Also provide the enjoyment and the best possible conditions under which those improvements can occur.

In an article on “Nutrition and You” by Dr.ldawson, she states that a major purpose of her career is to inform and educate physicians, health professionals, government agencies, the medical profession and the public at large about the importance, and available resources of nutrition.

Science of nutrition

She reminds everyone that no matter what the medical authorities may say, we must continue to search for improvements to our health through improved understanding of the science of nutrition. To fulfill this task, we need to have a Merriam-Webster Dictionary close at hand. It is that dictionary that can help us find what is out there. The Webster dictionary is freely available to all. So, even if we happen to be dealing with complex scientific words, we can use the word, ‘available.’

Using the food pyramid, we find that milk is a primary source of calcium, an organism must obtain 10 to 14 servings daily, whereas meat doe not provide calcium, an organism must obtain 2 to 3 servings daily. Five to seven servings of fruits and vegetables a day can meet any daily requirement for fruits and vegetables while any cereal, whether whole grain or refined, will provide at least 5 to 7 servings. For any five to seven servings a day, it is sufficient if the grains are whole wheat, whole rye or brown rice.

The next item available is fats. Oils are fats that hold body substances together. Fats provide the kind of comfort and relative calm that is needed during stressful times. Further, fats are necessary in diets to increase satiety. Foods that are healthy fats are nuts, such as walnuts, almonds, cashew nuts, and peanuts. Fish, poultry, and extra-fat dairy products are more complicated types that provide more nutrients than simple fats. Superfoods, like bee pollen, are considered to be more beneficial than simple superfoods because they are more beneficial.

Water, a great source for the body and all its processes

The next visible ingredient in food is water, a great source for the body and all its processes. This item operates in every process, from building and repairing tissues to charging and transporting hormones and nutrients in the blood. Water is also used in feces and urine to flush out bacteria as well as other waste products. The recommended water intake is 64 ounces, or about ten 8 ounce glasses of water a day.

In choosing foods, we must always remember nutrients minus the useful energy (calories) and useless wastes. Choosing foods that are low in nutrients and higher in uses than nutrients is a sure fire ticket to obesity.

The way we eat is so important in the way we age and die. Eating the wrong way can slow the aging process by providing the body with more energy. Eating the right way can increase longevity and improve the quality of our lives at the very least.
