Handbook of Nutrients: Structures, Metabolism and Genetics provides a comprehensive overview of the supply and use of nutrients in the human body and how the body regulates intake. Chapters detail the principles determining digestion and absorption of food ingredients and how these compounds and their metabolites get into the brain, cross the placenta and pass through the kidneys. Each nutrient covered contains a nutritional summary that describes their function, their food sources, dietary requirements, potential health risks if deficient, and impact of excessive intake.
This handbook contains the latest information on the scope of structures, processes, genes and cofactors involved in maintaining a healthy balance of nutrient supplies. The book is likely of interest to a wide range of professionals because nutrient issues connect to so many audiences. The link to dietary supplements is an important one that could draw the attention even of educated lay readers.




  • Latest research findings on health and clinical effects of nutrients and of interventions affecting nutrient supply or metabolism
  • Each nutrient covered contains a nutritional summary describing their function, their food sources, dietary requirements, potential health risks if deficient, and impact of excessive intake
  • Nutrient information immediately accessible--from source to effect--in one volume
