Understanding Nutrient Bioavailability

May 11, 2017

Bone cells, brain cells, and liver cells all have different functions, but they all have one thing in common: They need the right nutrients to perform efficiently.

Some nutrients are supportive nutrients, meaning that when they are consumed together, they support one another’s bioavailability. One such example is magnesium, calcium, and vitamin D.

On the other hand, some nutrient combinations impede each other, and negatively affect the other’s absorption.

Supportive nutrient combinations enhance cellular metabolism for more cell growth, to repair damage and adapt to changes in the environment.
