Nutritional Therapy, Nottingham
Nutrition is the study of how food and drink affects our bodies with a special regard to the essential nutrients necessary to support human health. It looks at the physiological and biochemical processes involved in nourishment and how substances in food provide energy or are converted into body tissues. These nutrients which are the source of energy for our bodies are classed as: carbohydrates, fats, fibre, minerals, proteins, vitamins, and water.

Nutritional Therapy looks at the diseases that can result from malnutrition and the role food plays in the development of chronic disease.
