Healthy Nutrition

"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." - Hippocrates
With each meal, our bodies absorb different nutritional components. When selecting our food, we can make the decision to supply our bodies with health-promoting substances that benefit our well-being.

Macronutrients such as carbohydrates, fat and protein are essential for supplying our bodies with the energy it needs to function. Macronutrients are involved in a variety of processes in our metabolism and should be a part of every meal in an appropriate proportion.

Micronutrients include vitamins such as vitamin C, minerals such as calcium and trace elements such as zinc or iodine. These, unlike macronutrients, provide no energy, but are just as important to our health.

In addition, not so long ago, scientists discovered a large group of “phytonutrients". Phytonutrients are compounds that give plants their color, flavor, and smell. They have various functions in plants, which ranges from self-defense mechanisms from toxins and insects, to protecting against radiation from UV rays. In humans, phytonutrients have a healing/medicinal/homoeopathic and health-promoting effect. There are many different groups of phytonutrients, which can be found in fruits and vegetables as well as spices and teas.

Since each food has a unique composition of different components, a well-balanced and varied diet is recommended to support a happy and healthy lifestyle.

A balanced diet should consist mainly of plant-based foods: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes like lentils and chickpeas, as well as nuts and seeds, which supply us with everything our bodies need.

A healthy and balanced diet increases our performance, improves our well-being and helps our body protect itself.
