Nutrition, nourishment or aliment, is the supply of food required by organisms and cells to stay alive.
The human body requires seven major types of nutrients.
Not all nutrients provide energy but are still important, such as water and fiber.
Micronutrients are important but required in smaller amounts.
Vitamins are essential organic compounds that the human body cannot synthesize.
Not eating the right foods to support intense activity only holds you back. Without a proper nutrition regimen to complement your active lifestyle, you could be wasting your efforts, seeing the slowest—or non-existent—progress, or worse, putting your entire body at risk for a bevy of dysfunction, including injuries, hormonal imbalances, and adrenal fatigue.
