Nutrition and Nutrition Therapy

It is a science that deals with the process of providing nutrients required by the body for growth and survival. These nutrients can be obtained through food. Our body is also capable of synthesizing some of the nutrients while the others have to be consumed through food. A food should be rich in nutrients in order to meet the requirements of the body. Less nutrition in the body leads to various diseases and hence affects the metabolism of the body.  Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.
