The Human Body needs essential Nutrients which are necessary for supporting human life and to keep healthy. Good Nutrition promotes physical growth in children, also good health in all humans, children and adults, and is also highly important when recovering from illness and injury.
Tribeca Nutrition work towards helping people to develop good, life-long, eating habits in their children, and to change bad eating habits right away. We also support mothers, and other adults responsible for preparing food for their families, to eat better and prepare healthy, balanced meals for the whole family.
Tribeca Nutrition focuses on the body’s metabolism and the metabolic pathways which nutrients follow through the body. We understand the biochemical steps which are different for each substance and understand the necessary transformation from one form into another, to enable absorption.
Understanding the function and importance of nutrients will go a long way towards explaining why the human body needs them, how the body uses it and how much of each is needed daily. Not all nutrients provide energy, for instance, fibre and water, and some are needed in rather small amounts.
Knowing your nutrients and knowing where to look for them, will make the task of preparing and cooking good, healthy and nutritious food much easier.
