Food Matters: Getting your nutrients for optimum health from foods alone may not be realistic.

Consider intake of  omega 3 fatty acids for optimum health ranging between 1.1 - 1.6 g/d in adult humans. It is very unlikely to meet these omega 3 intake needs from even the highest sources of omega 3 nutrient rich foods.

This can help us to understand why we need nutritional supplements to meet the body's demands for optimum health. moreover, demands for nutrients vary with the status of the body's activity (level of physical activity, health status - fighting disease, etc.).

It is also worthwhile to note that we can only realize the effectiveness of food in preventing disease and maintaining optimum health when optimum nutrient levels are achieved in the body.
