Nutritional medicine is the science of the components that exist within food, and within us, and how they influence our bodies.
The metabolism of glucose is an extraordinarily complex process with many nutrients working together in a perfect symphony. Nutrient deficiency, or environmental or genetic factors can influence this process, which can cause fatigue states, digestive dysfunction, or changes in mood. This is one small example of the interconnectedness of nutrients in the body and the large effect a small imbalance can generate.
