Health = Nutrients/Calories  or  H = N/C

So when we consume foods high in nutrient density, we provide our bodies with the building blocks it needs to make new brain cells, replace heart cells and grow immune cells properly to fight infections and cancer.  So we remove interference to our innate intelligence and expression of vitality with outstanding nutrient density.  Not to worry….it gets clear and easy on todays podcast!
