Nutrition in our food is highly important to consider in our diet, as its more than just calories for energy. When different foods are broken down, our bodies need to obtain certain elements in order to gain good nutrition to support and develop optimum cellular function. The most important is the minerals contained in the food we eat along with essential fatty acids, vitamins, antioxidants and good bacteria for the gut. Deficiencies in our bodies happen when we have poor nutrition from either digestion or absorption issues or from not eating the right foods and from lacking nutrients healthy foods.
It is essential for everyone to have good nutrition for good health, but it is even more so when trying to fall pregnant, during pregnancy and also post-partum and breastfeeding. There are a lot of cellular functions needed to become pregnant, so if the body is nutrient deficient, especially when there is little iron or ferritin for energy and oxygen, this will make it more difficult and things can potentially go wrong.
