Growing Nutrient Dense Plants.
As we age, our bodies undergo a variety of changes, making it more important than ever to maintain a healthy diet. Nutrient-dense plants are a great way to get the vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and antioxidants our bodies need to stay healthy and thrive.
Growing your own nutrient-dense plants is a great way to ensure you get the freshest and most nutritious produce possible. In this class, we will explore the benefits of nutrient-dense plants, how to harness their power for longevity, and what I call senior health.
Growing nutrient-dense plants is a fascinating endeavour that aligns well with my interest in alternative health for seniors. It’s no secret that the quality of the food we consume directly impacts our overall well-being, and seniors, in particular, can greatly benefit from a diet rich in essential nutrients. So, let’s dive into the world of nutrient-dense plants and explore how this practice can contribute to healthy longevity.
Seniors often have specific nutritional needs due to metabolism, digestion, and overall health changes. Nutrient-dense plants, not only can they help boost immune function and energy levels, but they can also contribute to better cognitive function and joint health.
