Macronutrients vs. Micronutrients
There is a huge difference between, "Macronutrients" and "Micronutrients" and guess what your body needs both to function at its highest level of health.
I am sure you have heard talk on social media and health blogs about making sure to get in your “micros” or to start tracking your “macros”. But, what exactly is the difference between micronutrients and macronutrients? Macronutrients are the actual nutrients we get from the foods we eat that contain carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Let’s talk briefly about micronutrients! Every day our bodies carry out tasks on their own from digesting food and converting it to energy, to transporting oxygen and producing new skin cells. However, none of these tasks would be made possible without consuming the proper amount of micronutrients that our bodies need to stay healthy. Micronutrients are the vitamins and minerals that our bodies need each day in order to properly function. Unlike macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) which are needed in large amounts, micronutrients are only required in small amounts, hence the appropriate name. While macronutrients are typically measured in grams, micronutrients are measured in milligrams and micrograms. Macronutrients are required in larger amounts because they contain calories that provide the body with energy. However, if we fail to fulfill our bodies’ micronutrients needs then it can lead to a multitude of adverse health effects. Each vitamin and mineral has a specific purpose and function and since our bodies cannot synthesize a substantial amount of vitamins and minerals on its own, we must get them from the foods that we eat.

Let's face it, the food we eat today is far different from the food our mother's and grandmother's ate! This accommodates a supreme shortage in both Macronutrients & Micronutrients in our food. So where do we turn to for the micronutrients that we need? Glad you asked, the only resolve is pure and natural supplements designed just for our DNA and health needs.
