Micro & Macro Nutrients

Lots of people ask what the difference is between Micronutrients and Macronutrients.

Well the definition is, Macronutrients are the structural and energy-giving caloric components of our foods that most of us are familiar with. They include carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Micronutrients are the vitamins, minerals, trace elements, phytochemicals, and antioxidants that are essential for good health.

Balancing these are what drives you your muscle gains or your fat loss. The proteins will help the muscles repair themselves, the carbs will help with the energy and the fats actually help protect your cells and aid with absorbing nutrients.

Micronutrients are basically your vitamins and minerals, such as calcium, vitamin B, and zinc to name a few. These are what help with boosting health and immunity.
