Our food does mainly consist of macros and micros. Micronutrients (micros) are required in smaller quantities such as vitamins, minerals, trace elemens, phytochemicals and antioxidants, which are found in natural food sources. Good examples of ‘popular’ micros are Vitamin C and D, Magnesium or Calcium. But just because we do not need the same amount like in macros, it doesn’t mean that they are less vital! They are. Good providers of those micros are fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes!
