Nutrients are Building Blocks of Life 

Nutrients are an essential integral part of nutrition found in food. Essential nutrients include protein (amino acids), certain lipids (cholesterol), essential fatty acids (EFA's), vitamins, and minerals.

Nutrients are Studied in Biochemistry

Nutrients work for health by supporting, maintaining, and promoting the functioning of the body and any of the various systems, organs, glands, and tissues.

Many nutrients have many different important functions, are a part of healing, growth, and development which are studied and researched in biochemistry.

The greater density of nutrients in the diet will support a healthy weight and promote healthy performance; not having enough of any essential nutrient will cause poor performance of any organ, gland and tissue.

Nutrient Science Defined

Researching Food Nutrients 

Nutrient science is the theoretical study and scientific examination of why nutrients and other constituents are essential to the health of the body, emotions, and mind through biochemistry.

Nutrient Structure and Function

Biochemistry research of nutrients is done by identifying the molecular structures of nutrients and determining the functions of where any nutrient is concentrated and utilized in systems, organs, glands, and tissues of the body.

The Study, Research, and Theory of How Nutrients Work

Nutrient science uses theoretical research combined with empirical observational analysis of dietary supplementation to show how nutrients work in humans and animals by discovering and confirming any role of a nutrient in supporting, maintaining and promoting health and well-being.

Nutrients are Required for Optimal Health and Well-being

Not enough of a nutrient is associated with the poor performance of any system, organ, gland and tissue, therefore it is vitally important to increase nutrient density by eating complete balanced meals along with dietary supplements to achieve healthy performance.

Allopathic Medicine does not Heal with Nutrients

Scientific studies may show the healing role and effectiveness of a nutrient in supporting, maintaining, and promoting health, but scientific studies do not show the medical role nor do they show any degree of practical medical effectiveness of a nutrient concerning the treatment, prevention, mitigation and curing of the causes of diseases that have been diagnosed.

Nutrients do not Treat Disease 

This is regardless of the conclusion(s) made in a study, unless such conclusions are government approved, the medical role is quackery, since food, herbs and supplements do not treat, prevent, manage, and cure disease.
