The intake of nutrition is important because the molecules are vital. Natural fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes etc. all contain essential raw vitamins and minerals that are not found elsewhere. Supplements are good if pure but sometimes can be fake.
More important than simply taking these raw foods is how well your body can utilize the nutrients. How efficient is your body at breaking the foods down and moving them fluidly throughout your body?
Your body is made of mostly water. Water is the main essential part of you that lets your body take advantage of the foods you eat. If your body is hydrated correctly and if you eat the right foods you have a much higher chance to get the nutrition to the parts of your body that need them most.
tl:dr: Nutrient utilization is more important than nutrient consumption.
