How to Get Your Nutrients



Are we really what we eat? No, this is not an entirely true statement. We are what we absorb from the foods we ingest. However, in some cases, our bodies may fail to absorb the nutrients we take in. This failure can be for a variety of reasons, so therefore it is important to check with your primary care provider to ensure you are not deficient in any of the essential components (vitamin B’s, D., etc.).
