Attaining Healthy Nutrition Habits: How You Can Do It
by John Gibb

Question: What nutrients does my body need to maintain healthy nutrition habits?

Answer: There are plenty of nutrients that can help your body become the picture of
health. Vitamin A is a key nutrient that can be found in fruits and vegetables. Aiding cell
reproduction, Vitamin A helps vision, promotes bone and tooth development, and helps
to maintain healthy skin, hair, and mucous membranes. A lack of this vitamin can cause
such woes as night blindness, poor bone growth, dry skin, and weak tooth enamel.

Doctors recommend 10,000 IU a day for an adult male, and 8,000 per day for adult
females to maintain healthy nutrition habits.

Vitamin C is another one of the most important vitamins for maintaining your health. 60
milligrams per day are recommended for adults of both sexes. This vitamin works as an
antioxidant, protecting your body’s tissues from the damage of oxidation. Vitamin C also
has been found to be an effective antiviral agent, protecting your body from various
sicknesses.

A key factor in attaining healthy nutrition habits is to keep your mineral consumption at
its proper levels. The word “mineral” describes any non-carbon based compound that
serves a function in the body. Some build bones and teeth, while others perform such
tasks as regulating muscle contraction. Minerals are classified into two groups based on
the human body’s need for them.

Major minerals are minerals that our bodies require in amounts greater than 100
milligrams per day. Major minerals include calcium, phosphorous and magnesium.

Minor minerals are minerals our body needs less then 100 milligrams per day of. Iron,
zinc, and iodine all fall under the minor minerals category.

Proper usage of these minerals combined with a diet that fits your life style can lead you
well on your way to attaining healthy nutrition habits.
