The philosophy and understanding of "Essential Nutrients" is real. How many and which nutrients that are essential is what medical industry struggles with. If essential nutrients was such a myth then doctors may not waste their time in writing a prescription for prenatal vitamins. Unfortunately some prenatal prescriptions may contain anywhere from 15 – 40 nutrients (a few more or less), so why the disparity? One thing for sure doctors know that the body requires essential nutrients that helps the unborn baby for sure.
According to the World Health Organization, these nutrients must come from food, and they are vital for disease prevention, growth, and good health. My only question is "What if the foods we're eating don't contain enough essential nutrients? I would then naturally assume that we would need to supplement our nutrient intake. Once again if the doctor believes that there's enough quality essential nutrients in the right amounts in our consumption, there would be no need to write that prenatal prescription.
So what is an "Essential Nutrient"?
