Having ensured a basic knowledge in nutrition with Introduction to Human Nutrition, this book allows students to explore nutrition and metabolism across the various systems of the body rather than to deal in advanced aspects of nutrition and metabolism on a nutrient by nutrient basis or by group of nutrients. Thus there is not an identifiable chapter on Vitamin A; this vitamin is covered in all of these chapters: The Nutrient Requirements of Tissues and Organs, The Sensory System, Molecular aspects of Nutrition, The Reproductive System, The immune and inflammatory System and Under-nutrition. Nutrition & Metabolism provides the student with the detailed information they need about how different nutrients effect and are required by different parts of the body. This allows the student to concentrate on parts of the body at one time rather than concentrating on each individual nutrient or mineral, making the information more assessable and easier to digest.

The science that interprets the interaction of nutrients and other substances found in food and their role in the health of an organism is known as nutrition. It also deals with the maintenance, growth, reproduction and disease in organisms with respect to nutrients. Some of the processes which are studied under nutrition are food intake, assimilation, biosynthesis, catabolism and excretion. Proper nutrition is essential to avoid deficiency-related diseases like anemia, blindness, scurvy, stillbirth, preterm birth and cretinism. Metabolism is a group of life-sustaining chemical reactions in organisms. It helps in the conversion of food to energy for running cellular processes. It also converts the food to building blocks for proteins, nucleic acids, lipids and carbohydrates. Proper nutrition is essential for metabolism since metabolic pathways depend upon nutrients which they breakdown to produce energy. This book is a compilation of chapters that discuss the most vital concepts in the fields of nutrition and metabolism. The topics covered herein deal with the core aspects of these areas. This book will provide comprehensive knowledge to the readers.

As in the original editions, this book has been written for those with a background in biochemistry and physiology who may or may not have a background in nutrition and dietetics. The first half of the text introduces integral concepts in nutrition science, such as energy, regulation of food intake, nutritional biochemistry, cell cycle, nutrigenomics, and epigenetics. The second portion of the book focuses on specific micronutrients and macronutrients with respect to their roles in metabolism. For ease of understanding, each chapter follows a specific format detailing each nutrient’s definition, absorption, use, and excretion. Chapters include discussions on protein, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, and minerals. Woven throughout the text are topics of clinical interest such as obesity, diabetes, lipemia, renal disease, and other conditions influenced by nutrition. New in this Edition: Regulation of food intake and feeding behavior Daily recommended nutrient intakes Metabolism Toxicology Nutrigenomics, epigenetics, and gene expression Cell cycle and life span nutrition The book presents a wealth of illustrations, diagrams, and tables that make complex concepts easy to grasp. It also provides references and a glossary of terms. The accompanying CD-ROM includes PowerPoint® slides of additional material.

The science of interpreting the interaction of nutrients and other substances in food with respect to various processes needed to sustain life in organisms is known as nutrition. Some of the processes which are studied within this discipline in relation to food are health, maintenance, reproduction, growth and disease of an organism. The set of chemical reactions which are essential for the sustenance of life is known as metabolism. There are three major purposes of metabolism. The first purpose is the elimination of nitrogenous wastes. The second one is the conversion of food to energy for running cellular processes. The third purpose of metabolism is the conversion of food to building blocks for proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, etc. This book provides comprehensive insights into the fields of nutrition and metabolism. It consists of contributions made by international experts. Coherent flow of topics, student-friendly language and extensive use of examples make this book an invaluable source of knowledge.
