The Science of Anti-Nutrients in Food




8.0 CECs / Webinar & Narrative Review / Quiz

In the course The Science of Anti-Nutrients in Food, you will learn how all nutrients from food play a critical role in maintaining the integrity of a number of different vital bodily functions. For most people, eating a colorful, whole-foods based diet is sufficient enough to provide an adequate supply of these nutrients to both promote and optimize health. But in some cases, these very same nutrients that are usually beneficial to our body (all of which are quite common) can be detrimental.

These nutrients are called anti-nutrients. And if you are a nutrition, health, or wellness professional who regularly provides coaching, counseling, or guidance to clients who regularly consume plant-based foods and have chronic or autoimmune disease, you need to be aware of how anti-nutrients may be impacting your clients.

At first, I didn't really enjoy this class very much. It seemed as though I could have received this information in 3-4 pieces of paper. The studies were quite boring; however, in the end, I learned much more than I thought I would and have been able to pass some of it on already. As I have always thought...there is no learning that's a waste of time. Everything has a purpose and necessary to move on the the next subject. Thank you for providing an excellent education.

Cheryl, we're so glad you stuck with The Science of Anti-Nutrients in Food to see experience the full benefits (:
