Micronutrition, a personalised approach to nutrition

What is micronutrition ?

It is a medical discipline based on how micronutrients affect the body’s functions.

Micronutrition considers the individual as a whole and offers treatment specific to the stage of life (pregnant women, growing adolescents, athletes taking part in intensive activity ... ) in the knowledge that :

- We are all unique : we have neither the same needs nor the same metabolism

- Because of our personality and our history, we feed ourselves differently

- Micronutritional advice must take into account the state of health of each individual

Focus on… Micronutrients

These are nutrients required by the body in small quantities, but whose role is essential for its proper functioning and the maintenance of health. They are provided by food. If there is a deficiency, the impact on health is direct, such as the fatigue inherent in a lack of iron, or iodine. Alongside the standard micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals, trace elements, the importance of other molecules has been identified, such as essential fatty acids, antioxidants, microbiotic strains and fibres and even methyl and acetyl radicals on the activation or repression of our genes.
