Which nutrients are necessary for a healthy diet?

Food and beverages contain a wealth of nutrients, including carbohydrates, protein, fat, fluids, fiber, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, antioxidants, and more. All nutrients serve vital functions in the body, including growth, development, disease protection, repair, and good nutrition.

Good nutrition is no mystery yet the complex way in which nutrients work together to promote health is highly sophisticated. Eating a variety of foods is the best way to ensure a nutrient-rich diet. Colorful foods are often the ones with the richest sources of nutrients, especially disease-fighting antioxidants. Aim to select foods that are high in nutrients yet low in fat and calories at each meal.

Eat a nutrient-rich diet each day and supplement your eating plan with a once-daily multivitamin and mineral for nutritional insurance. If you have a health condition that requires additional supplementation, consult your doctor. A healthy diet along with a physically active lifestyle is the best formula for wellness, disease prevention, and good health.
