Abstract: There are many different dietary recommendations. So how does someone choose the right diet plan? Functional Nutrition is an understanding of how the presence or absence of a substance in a food determines how the body uses that food. Coupled with the factors that determine why certain food choices are better than others, Functional Nutrition gives a clear blueprint of what foods to focus on and why in order to use food as medicine to prevent, minimize or resolve a variety of chronic health conditions.
