The concept of food as medicine is not new; foods have been used for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years and is a feature of many cultures around the world. However nutrition science has evolved and developed significantly over the recent years; our knowledge of nutrients, bioactive compounds of foods, and their relationship with disease, is significantly more advanced and our understanding of the role of food in health continues to grow. Despite this there is still a lot of debate and expectations of ‘foods as medicine’.
Explore its current role in health and disease; expand your understanding of nutrition science and how it guides us on what and how much to eat for health; learn how to apply evidenced-based nutrition knowledge to guide what food can be used as medicine for you and your family.
