You are what you eat

Nutrition West Des Moines

We have all heard the saying, “you are what you eat” before, which is true. Every cell in your body is basically made up of the last several meals you have chosen to eat.  This is why it is so important to choose a well-balanced diet. If we eat healthy, our bodies will be more likely to be healthy and strong. On the other hand, if we eat a poor diet, our bodies will lack the nutrition needed to allow our bodies to be strong, pain-free, and full of energy.

The sad truth, however, is that most American diets lack the vitamins and minerals needed to allow us to develop, grow, and function at optimal levels. Even those of us who work hard to achieve proper nutrition often fall short due to the high levels of processing and chemical additives used to make many of our food products today, even the so called “natural” ones.

High-Quality Vitamins and Supplements

This is why it is so important to augment our meals through the use of high-quality vitamins and supplements. This allows us to reach the high level of nutrition our bodies truly need to function.

Dr. Nelson will not only offer you dietary guidance and suggestions to help make your diet the best it can be, but he may also recommend which high-quality vitamins and supplements are needed for you to perform, function, and live at your best!
