Nutrition and you
Nutrition plays a vital, and often dynamic, role throughout life. Different phases in a person’s life such as growth, pregnancy, menopause, or even the process of aging, impact the body in diverse ways and keep changing its demand for nutrients. Meeting these demands with a balanced diet is a prerequisite for normal development and functioning of the body.
Certain infections, minor or major surgery, or cancer, influence normal body functions and hamper nutritional status. In these conditions, adequate nutrition not only helps meet energy and wear-and-tear needs but also plays a therapeutic role in improving recovery.
Hence, harnessing the power of right nutrition is significant at every step of an individual’s life and the first step towards doing that is to recognize its role in various conditions.
