Health and Nutrition

Nutrition is the most important source of energy for our body. It ensures our performance capacities. Components of food are involved in important processes of metabolism, regeneration and immune functions. Furthermore numerous ingredients with natural antibiotic effects exist, which are also capable of preventing infections.

Unhealthy nutrition and an inactive life style stimulate widespread diseases such as diabetes, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases. The effects of specific nutrition factors on overweight and cancer risk has been proven. With a healthy nutrition we can protect ourselves from disease and support recovery.

Let food be your medicine and your medicine your food.
Hippokrates (460 – 370 v. Chr.)

Recommendations for a healthy diet are numerous. But the question what constitutes a healthy diet in detail is often only answered unsatisfactorily by scientists. The passage of food ingredients in the human body is highly complex and despite extensive research still not completely understood to date.

With the projects supported by the Leonardis Foundation we would like to contribute to the understanding of the influence of nutrition in order to apply food in a more targeted manner in maintaining health in the future.
