How does the body use nutrition?

Your body uses nutrition primarily in five ways:

  • To replace used up "building-block" nutrients (for body structure).
  • To provide essential nutrients that the body cannot make itself (essential nutrients for daily function). As nutrients are used daily in the body, they must be replaced daily.
  • For healing, repair and maintenance of all the body's tissues and structures.
  • To address various stress factors, environments and health conditions that increase nutritional requirements.
  • To detoxify and eliminate accumulated toxins and wastes from the body.

Remember: Your body is made of nutrients- not drugs.

Your body knows how to use nutrition.
