Do Americans get all the nutrients they need from food alone? Sadly, the answer is, ‘No’. About three-fourths of the American population consumes very little vegetable, fruits, dairy and oils*. This low intake of healthy food also lowers the amount of essential nutrients required by the body. In addition to this, the high intake of calories, sedentary lifestyles, stress, loss of sleep, emotional strain, use of alcohol or tobacco and many other such factors may affect the nutrition index of your body leading to chronic diseases such as Obesity, Diabetes, Hypertension, Cancer, etc., numerous health issues and also impacting the potential for a profound longevity increase. The escalation in health issues brings forth the likelihood of a massive increase in health expenditures as well.
Making changes to eating patterns can be overwhelming but combined with correct nutritional consultations, it can help you avoid most of these issues, which will lead to an increase in your life span and help slow your aging process.
