Nutrition & Immunity – Pillar 2

World Wellness Weekend / 5 pillars of wellness / Nutrition & Immunity – Pillar 2

Trouble keeping an eye on your nutrition?

Healthy can be easy and savoury, boosting your energy and immunity.

It is time to check what has been on your plate lately…

Changing your diet is not the key.

While most people change their diet whenever they need to lose a few pounds, balanced nutrition is necessary for more than just getting your summer body ready. The human body is a complex system that needs to be treated with the proper nutrients. A diet deficient in vital nutrients will soon lead to unease and possibly disease. Healthy plates are essentials for your body’s cells, the growth and repair of your tissues, your immune system, the prevention of chronic diseases, and maintaining good mental health. Moreover, with potentially devastating effects on climate, nutrition is bound to be a hot topic for years to come.

  • Organic food sales more than doubled. Going from less than $20 billion in 2006 to $40 billion in 2015. Now, more than 6% of the foods at local markets are organic. (Eco 18, 2019)
