Nutrition overview

Nutrition is important in everyday lives to maintain a healthy body and to lower the body's risk to diet-related problems and diseases. When relating nutrition to working out, the importance is just as high. Working out burns energy that is introduced into the body through food sources. The body cannot benefit from workouts unless it has enough of the required nutrients for rebuilding muscle. Also motivation and a general feel good factor are improved with a healthy body. The links above show more specifics on different nutrients needed for working out and maintaining health. There are more detailed insights on specific nutrients and recommended daily allowences of all key muscle and body developing nutrients on separate pages.
