WHAT IS A REGISTERED NUTRITIONAL CONSULTANT?

Registered Nutritional Consultants (RNC's) are professionals trained in nutrition and complementary therapies who educate individuals and groups about the benefits of a sound nutritional program and a healthy lifestyle to encourage the body to achieve optimum health.

Since every person is biochemically unique, individual nutritional imbalances and weaknesses must be assessed. A RNC will recommend specific diets and nutritional support to help their clients build and maintain well-being.

RNC's help others to make the best possible food choices. It is important to eat a wide variety to ensure all essential nutrients are included in the diet. A RNC will introduce new dietary habits, incorporating the latest nutritional breakthroughs, but it may be difficult to achieve optimal health through food alone. In such cases, RNC's are trained to personalize dietary supplement programs.
