Have you ever heard of macronutrients and micronutrients? Are you curious what the difference is? Let’s take a look.
They are both very important nutrients that are needed for our bodies to function optimally. Macronutrients are the main components within our diets: fats, carbohydrates and protein. We consume them every day through the foods we eat. Micronutrients on the other hand are required in trace amounts for the normal growth and development of living organisms. Micronutrients encompass vitamins and minerals and it’s very common for people to consume too little of these in their diet. It’s paramount to include both micro and macronutrients in our meals because they both impact how our bodies function.
Macronutrients are needed in larger amounts while micronutrients are only needed in small amounts. Unfortunately, much of our convenience foods like fast food, are devoid of micronutrients. When we consume calories without real nutrients, we not only continue to feel hungry because we are nutritionally deprived, but this can lead to long term malnourishment.
Ensuring you are not deficient with micronutrients is important because not only do they help your body function optimally, they can help prevent life threatening health issues. Vitamins and minerals are essential for your body and overall health. Many processed foods don’t contain the important micronutrients needed to potentially prevent the development of diseases like diabetes and high cholesterol which can increase your likelihood for other serious problems like a stroke.
Changing your eating habits is a big lifestyle change and not very easy for the majority of the population. This is one reason why supplements were created, to help improve individuals’ health by giving them what their body needs because it’s not in the food they eat. Finding what supplement is best for you can be a challenge, but with Protea Nutrition there is no second guessing.
