Why Is Complete Nutrition Important? What Are the Benefits?

Today we are going to talk about why complete nutrition is important, and what are the benefits. While there are many benefits of complete nutrition, today we are going to talk about a few:

Stronger Immune System

When you have complete nutrition, your body has what it needs to function optimally. That means that it can focus energy on your immune system. When foreign invaders like bacteria and viruses hit your body, and this happens on a daily basis, your immune system kicks into action and isolates and kills the invaders. If you don’t have complete nutrition, your body has to compensate for that lack. When it has to compensate, it’s weaker.

More Energy

You need a number of nutrients in your body for your metabolism to function well. Your metabolism is a complicated system of hormones, enzymes, and chemical reactions. It needs specific minerals and vitamins to manage different levels of the process.

For example, your thyroid is a gland that releases hormones that impact your metabolism. When this hormone is low, your metabolism slows down. You feel lethargic, you get sick more often, and you gain weight. Vitamin D, B, and C are important for healthy thyroid function, as are many minerals including selenium.

Longer Life

Because your cells and systems require essential nutrients, when you fuel your body with these nutrients it has what it needs to thrive. It’s not compensated. It’s not weakened. It’s able to function optimally. When you’re compromised and your body has to work extra hard, that’s when disease happens, which ultimately shortens your life span.

One thing that we do to ensure complete nutrition is we drink Shakeology every day. It would cost well over $700 to buy everything that is in a bag of Shakeology and we pay about $3.33 a day for our one-serving. That is less then a Starbucks. In the last few weeks most of the people my husband works with have had the flu and one had the flu and pneumonia, and my husband didn’t get sick I think because of his strengthened immune system. Want to know more…just ask!

As you can see, complete nutrition is essential for optimal health. So why not take a supplement? Why rely on food when a pill can help you give your body the vitamins and minerals that it needs? That’s what we’ll talk about next week 😉
