Do you practice good nutrition?

Nutritional Counseling Services at Culbertson

Nutrition is the study of how our body uses the nutrients absorbed from the foods we eat. Nutritionists pull from the studies of molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics to properly determine how certain nutrient intake affects the body. Understanding how your body processes food can be helpful to achieving short- and long-term healthcare goals.
