Micros vs. Macros: What's the Difference?

An important part of understanding your body's nutritional needs is understanding the difference between micronutrients and macronutrients. Micronutrients are tiny building blocks that support your body's health and include water, vitamins, and minerals. These nutrients can help your body fight disease and feel healthy. 

Macronutrients, such as proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, provide your body with energy and help it thrive. Having the right balance of macronutrients can help you maintain muscle mass, strength, and energy.

Nutritional Counseling

When you visit us for nutritional counseling, we’ll discuss your goals with you and any symptoms you may be experiencing.

Then, we’ll provide you with a personalized nutrition plan that can help with various health issues, including inflammation, chronic pain, and fatigue.
