NUTRIENTSFONCTIONS
PROTEINS (protides)Proteins are essential, because these energetic substances, but also plastics, contribute to the construction of the organism. They participate in the development of muscle, nervous or bone tissues, and are the basis of blood, urine and antibodies
LIPIDS (Fat)Lipids are energetic substances. They release heat and are the body’s source of energy. They fall into two categories: complex lipids and simple lipids.
CARBOHYDRATES (sugar)Carbohydrates also provide energy to the body. Their assimilation is very fast and the work to digest them is minute, the body does not have large reserves. It is therefore necessary to bring it to the body with each meal. We will differentiate quick release sugars from slow-burning sugars.
FIBERS (celluloses)Fiber is a substance that has no nutritional value but is necessary for the proper functioning of the body. They intervene in the speed of absorption of nutrients and slow it down. But their primary role is to facilitate intestinal transit
WATERContributing 50 to 70% of the weight of the human body, water is absolutely vital. It provides the cells with nutrients and facilitates the elimination of waste and toxins.
VITAMINSVitamins are not energetic substances. They are nevertheless necessary for our organism, because they play a role in the chemical reactions of the body and thus allow the use of the energetic substances consumed.
MICRO-NUTRIENTSPresent in infinite quantities in the body, micro-nutrients (zink, copper, fluorine) have a function close to that of vitamins, because they allow the use of energetic substances.
MINERAL SALTMinerals (calcium, iron, magnesium) are energetic substances, but they are necessary for the constitution and proper functioning of the organism
