The simple way to build a strong nutritional foundation

Some things are just essential. No matter where we live, how we spend our days, or what our age, there are some nutrients that we all need in order for our bodies to function properly. So how do we get it right?

Defining foundational nutrients

From cardiovascular to neurological systems, there are specific nutrients required as a basic foundation for optimal health. That’s why these essential building blocks form what’s referred to as “foundational nutrition.”

Three types of foundational nutrients

We can think of foundational nutrition as covering three important categories:

  • Macronutrients: protein, fat, and carbohydrates
  • Micronutrients: vitamins and minerals
  • Phytonutrients: organic components found in fruits and vegetables

For optimal health, we need to feed our bodies all three types of nutrients, every day.

Did you know?

80% of Americans aren’t getting the fruits and veggies they need from diet alone. (Global Phytonutrient Report)

Building a solid foundation

Think of your body as a house. Macronutrients, micronutrients, and phytonutrients are all essential building blocks that help keep things running smoothly, day in and day out. Each nutrient plays an important role in our well-being:

The bricks

Protein helps us grow and repair ourselves.

The mortar

Vitamins and minerals perform hundreds of roles that keep the foundation strong, and help sustain life.

Security

Phytonutrients help protect the integrity of the bricks and mortar by supporting vital systems and fighting against cell damage.

Electricity

Omega-3 fatty acids help support the health of our nervous and cardiovascular systems that keep our bodies running.

    VERY frustrated Amway has discontinued the E-85 replacement filter. This is not what we were told. I will be on social media sharing this information of the truth be told. My 95 year old grandmother will be wanting a refund for her system since she will not be able to get a replacement filter as we & she was told.
    I am unbelievably frustrated.
