We want to help you to understand the importance of nutrition in your life. By learning about basic nutrition you will be able to make the proper adjustments to your eating behaviour.
Proteins are the building blocks for our muscle and other cells like skin and hair. The body needs proteins to run all processes associated with muscle work.
Carbohydrates act as fuel for our cells and therefore an important source of energy for intense physical activity and exercise. Carbohydrates are divided into "good" complex carbohydrates (whole grain products etc.) and "bad" simple carbohydrates from simple sugars.
Fats are also essential for our body. They are involved in processes in our cells and influence our hormonal balance. A distinction is made between saturated fatty acids and mono/polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Our body needs essential micro nutrients to survive and to maintain all vital functions (cardiovascular system etc.). A supply of all essential vitamins and minerals is fundamental to strengthening our immune system and fighting free radicals in the body with the help of antioxidants.
