Top 5 Micronutrients Your Body is Missing
For a long time, doctors and nutritionists have been focused on macronutrients of one's diet; that is, the carbs, fats and proteins. 

Until now, little attention has been paid to the micronutrients, which are the vitamins, minerals and amino acids that your body needs to function.

With this lack of emphasis, it's no wonder that 90 percent of the U.S. population is deficient in at least one micronutrient; and many are deficient in multiple.

Jayson Calton, PhD and Mira Calton, CN, authors of The Micronutrient Miracle: The 28-Day Plan to Lose Weight, Increase Your Energy, and Reverse Disease, share their top five micronutrients that everyone should be getting on a regular basis.
  • A good multi-vitamin
  • Omega-3s (eat them or take them in supplement form)
  • Amino acids (found in either animal- or plant-based protein)
  • Probiotics 
  • Good source of fat (best at the same time you take your multi, because you need fat for fat-soluble vitamins to be absorbed)
Listen in as the Caltons join Andrea and Lisa to share more about the importance of micronutrients, as well as the top five to start incorporating right now.
