The most accepted concept in nutrition is that it serves three main functions:
a) To provide energy (through the consumption of carbohydrates, some fats, and protein).
b) To regulate body functions (through the consumption of water, fiber, lipids, carbohydrates, and protein, among others).
c) To help the body develop (through the consumption of minerals, vitamins, protein, and carbohydrates that aid in our body's different metabolic processes).
In conclusion, nutrients and food help nourish our bodies. They help our bodies become energized, as well as develop, grow, and stay healthy.
