Functional food is food that has a positive effect on health beyond basic nutrition. Such foods play a role in fighting disease and promoting optimal health. This app offers information on over 150 functional foods to encourage wellness. Information on each food can be found from within their food group or as organized into seven of the most important body systems.
Descriptions of these body systems show the importance of nutrients needed for our body, mind, and mood. These nutrients are the building blocks for your health and are critical to preventive healthcare. A varied diet full of vegetables and fruits ensures you get needed nutrients, including phytonutrients found in colorful plants. Macronutrients are needed in larger amounts than micronutrients, and include proteins, healthy fats, and carbohydrates. Micronutrients describe vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes.
A detailed page of each food offers a summary of specific nutrients and benefits, along with the option to favorite or the ability to add on a personal shopping list. The shopping list makes it easy to remember your choices, conveniently divided into the food groups commonly found at your grocery store or farmers market. Another tool to choose is the search icon for finding foods associated with a search word.
