Nutrition is what we provide to our bodies, in the form of food and drink, to support life within our body's cells. It is what we eat and drink, which is known as our diet. People provide themselves with all kinds of nutrition, and not all of it is beneficial to supporting life. Experts recommend that we eat and drink certain nutrients for good reasons. In this article, we discuss ten reasons for giving your body proper nutrition.
Ten reasons for giving your body proper nutrition are:
1. Reduce the risk of certain illnesses.
Most people want to have the chance of a long healthy life, and therefore want to reduce illnesses like heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and certain cancer. Proper nutrition goes a long way towards reducing the risks.
2. Improve our Immune System
By taking certain nutrients, we build up our immune system, and are less susceptible to viruses that other people have.
3. Get Fit
If we are unfit already, it's a real challenge to exercise because of the lack of energy. So, if we feed our bodies with proper nutrition, we'll get more energy and feel like exercising to get fit.
4. Have Fun and Do the things we Want to do
If we are on a good diet most of the time, we can do new and strenuous activities like rock climbing or wind surfing, or scuba diving, things that take a lot of energy and strength. Having the right nutrients in our bodies, builds our strength and confidence to do different things.
5. Look Good and Healthy
When taking good nutrition, we look good. Our bodies are trim and lean, and our skin looks clear and healthy, nails are stronger, and our hair looks shinier.
6. Feel Good
I believe this is the most important. With good nutrition, we feel much better because our cells are getting the nutrients they require.
7. Improve the Quality of Our Lives
When we look and feel good, we have a lot more confidence. It's easier to get the job we want or to have a successful business, or just to do the things we love doing.
8. Learn More Easily
Healthy children learn more easily, and this is shown by research studies. I believe this is true for adults also, and that learning is a fun part of life at any age.
9. Improve Vision
Good nutrition improves our vision, including night vision.
10. Improve our Memories
Our memories will be improved if we take certain nutrients, and this will improve our working life, or make it more fun in relationships with other people, to remember things we've heard or read before.
By reading about these ten reasons for good nutrition, I hope you were inspired to learn about proper nutrition and to think about what you eat and drink.
