A Guide Of Nutrient Needs To Human Body Everyday

Each day, we need hundreds of nutrients to stay healthy, and these nutrients must be supplied by the food we eat. The following chart will give you a sense of the variety of some of the nutrients we must get each day from our food if we wish to experience a healthy weight and optimal health. Please note that this chart is by no means comprehensive; it doesn’t show you all of the nutrients you need.

Why You Should Follow This Guides?

For example, phytonutrients—plant nutrients such as carotenoids (beta carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin) and flavonoids (anthocyanins, catechins, quercetin)—are now known to be essential to health, but while researchers have identified approximately 10,000 phytonutrients, they estimate at least 40,000 phytonutrients may eventually be catalogued.

Even though they have yet to be named or identified in the laboratory, these phytonutrients are still very much present—in nutrient rich foods, like the World’s Healthiest Foods. In fact, that is the only place you can currently get them! They cannot, for example, be obtained from dietary supplements because they have not yet been
isolated from the whole, natural foods that contain them. Nor are they available in highly processed “fast” foods.

USA Food And Drug Administrations Charts

The following chart contains some well-established and well researched nutrients that are included in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s “Reference Values for Nutrition Labeling.” Next to each nutrient you’ll see the Daily Value (DV) that was established as part of the FDA’s labeling program. Please note that this DV value is a population-based goal and may not reflect the exact amount of the nutrient that would be best for you (for this information you should seek the advice of a nutrition-oriented healthcare practitioner). Yet,
these Daily Values can give you a sense of general nutrient intake goals and emphasize how nutrient-rich World’s Healthiest Foods can provide you with outstanding benefits in terms of Daily Values.

All DVs, except for omega-3 fatty acids, based upon the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration’s Reference Values for Nutrition Labeling. DVs
based on 2000 calories per day.

* As there is currently no DV set by the FDA for omega-3 fatty acids, we adopted the standards set forth in a 1999 workshop conducted at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The workshop concluded that at least 1.2% of daily calories should come from
omega-3 fatty acids, including 1% from alpha-linolenic acid and 0.1% each from EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) When translated into the context of an 1800-calorie diet, this workshop standard represented a recommendation of 2.4
grams of omega-3 fatty acids per day, which we adopted as our food and recipe rating system standard.
