The average adult has around 30 trillion cells in his or her body, and every day thousands of new cells are replicated from old ones. New cells are made to replace the old cells that become worn-out or damaged. Providing the raw materials for the creation of these new cells from nutrients in your food is one way that nutrition plays an important role in sustaining cellular, and therefore overall health. For example, Inositol ( found in whole grains) is a component of membrane phospholipids that are involved in various functions including cellular signaling. Increases in dietary inositol and choline have been found to significantly influence the concentration of membrane phospholipids and support healthy cell membranes. In addition, specific nutrients also protect your cells from damage and support the body's energy production machinery. (Source)
