HUMAN HEALTH SCIENCE AND FOOD RELATION & MODERN PRACTICE.
What does food do in our bodies?
The nutrients in food enable the cells in our bodies to perform their necessary functions.
“Nutrients are the nourishing substances in food that are essential for the growth, development and maintenance of body functions. Essential meaning that if a nutrient is not present, aspects of function and therefore human health decline. When nutrient intake does not regularly meet the nutrient needs dictated by the cell activity, the metabolic processes slow down or even stop.”
