What Is Total Nutrition?

Total nutrition is a plan for healthy living. Nutritious meal plans and dietary supplements in combination with an effective skin and hair program will help you look and feel your best. What you eat and drink affects your shape, your skin, how fast you age and how you feel. That's why it's so important to drink plenty of water, eat plenty of healthy meals including colorful fruits and vegetables and use pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements to balance out what we can't get from foods.

It has been estimated that up to 97% of Americans have diets that do not contain the recommended daily allowance of vitamins and nutrients. Healthy nutrients nourish your cells. Plant-based nutrients provide vitamins, antioxidants and minerals to support cell function. Cellular nutrition products deliver healthy nutrients to cells throughout the body, as part of a healthy diet.

Cells are the basic unit of the human body, providing the power for everything you do from thinking to growing. Cells form tissues, tissues form organs, and organs form body systems. The systems working together make up a human being. Good nutrition that begins on the inside will flourish on the outside.

There is a growing consumer awareness of the connection between nutrition and skin. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and we all forget to treat it like one. It absorbs and assimilates nutrients like any other organ, however also absorbing pollutants at the same time. Today, as the stability of our environment is threatened, there is a greater need to protect our skin and hair. Your skin has three major functions

1.Protecting you. It provides a barrier from pathogens between the internal and external environment.

2. Providing sensation. Supports nerve endings that react to heat, cold, touch, pressure, vibration, and pain.

3. Providing insulation. Blood vessels, hair, and sweat glands cooperate to keep your body at just the right temperature. Sweating, shivering and goose bumps are examples of this.

A proper skincare regimen consists of cleansing, exfoliating, toning/freshening with an astringent, and moisturizing. You should even add protection to this list and finalize with a foundation, powder and/or sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15.
