Did You Know?
Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass, and the maintenance of normal bones, so it's important to consume enough protein each day to meet your daily requirements. Having plenty of energy helps us to make the most of life, a comprehensive range of B vitamins are known to offer a range of health benefits, contributing to normal energy yielding metabolism for energy, endurance and stamina, a reduction in tiredness and fatigue, and a healthy nervous system.
Green vegetables are an important source of daily nutrition and are bursting with antioxidants, fibre, vitamins, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium. However, many of us simply don’t include greens in our daily diet, and when we do, much of the valuable nutrition is often lost during cooking.
