The Chain of Life
Six distinct groups of nutrients that support optimal health make up what GNLD calls the “Chain of Life.” Each “link” depends on the strength of the others to function properly.
Lipids and sterols: Essential fats required for energy and to maintain healthy cells.
Carbohydrates: The “fuel” that keeps all body functions running. Responsible for energy and endurance.
Protein: Builds and repairs cells in hair, skin, organs and muscles.
Enzymes: Biochemical “keys” that unlock powerful nutrients. Critical in digestion and metabolism.
Minerals: Help build bones, teeth and soft tissue; crucial to muscle response.
Vitamins and food-related factors: Vitamins and phytonutrients like carotenoids and flavonoids help promote lifelong health and vitality.
