Nutrition Q & A

What is good nutrition?

Good nutrition is essential to living a long life and lowering the risk of chronic conditions like heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. You achieve good nutrition by eating a healthy, balanced diet that provides daily energy and essential nutrients like:

  • Fats 
  • Vitamins
  • Minerals 
  • Proteins
  • Carbohydrates
  • Water  

The healthiest diets are colorful and include a mixture of fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, orange and red vegetables, full-fat milk products, and protein-rich food like legumes, nuts, or meat. 

Why is nutrition important?

Getting the right nutrition is vital for children and adults alike. In adults, it promotes:

  • Muscle health
  • Bone strength
  • Healthy skin, hair, and teeth
  • A healthy weight
  • Immunity
  • Good digestive function
  • Long life
  • A reduced risk of some cancers, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes
  • Healthy pregnancies and successful breastfeeding

In children, nutrition and eating healthy support all of this, along with brain development. 

How can I improve my nutrition?

When you visit Adaptations Wellness to improve your health, Mechelle works with you to develop a personalized eating plan that helps your body function at its best. In addition to teaching you how to best eat for your body, Mechelle offers supplements by Ortho Molecular Products®. 

Taking supplements is a simple way to get additional nutrients into your body. They contain formulations that deliver concentrated levels of vitamins, minerals, and ingredients such as:

  • Vitamins B12 and D
  • Calcium, iron, and magnesium

  • Probiotics
  • Amino acids like glutamine and tryptophan
  • Botanical compounds like rosemary leaf extract and Schisandra berry extract

Some supplements contain fruits and vegetables like pumpkin, beetroot, banana, orange, spinach, and raspberry to protect against free radicals.

It’s important to note that though dietary supplements can help your health, they are not a substitute for eating good, nutrient-dense foods or getting regular physical activity.
