Handbook of Nutrients

Nutrient Metabolism, Second Edition, 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's coverage contains a nutritional summary that describes its function, its 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. Of interest to a wide range of professionals because nutrient issues connect to so many audiences, the book contains a useful link to dietary supplements. 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 its function, 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

Nutrient Metabolism defines the molecular fate of nutrients and other dietary compounds in humans, as well as outlining the molecular basis of processes supporting nutrition, such as chemical sensing and appetite control. It focuses on the presentation of nutritional biochemistry; and the reader is given a clear and specific perspective on the events that control utilization of dietary compounds. Slightly over 100 self-contained chapters cover all essential and important nutrients as well as many other dietary compounds with relevance for human

"Availability of nutrients and optimal nutrient metabolism are essential for maintaining health. Intrinsic factors (e.g., sex, gene variations) and extrinsic factors (e.g., diet, drug) affect nutrient metabolism, leading to different disease risks. To gain insight into sex-related effects of gene loss-of-function, the transcriptomes of the small intestine from male and female mice with functional or inactivated intestinal fatty acid-binding protein (Fabp) genes encoding Fabp2 and Fabp6 were compared. The analysis showed that male and female mice have inherently

Almost every aspect of energy and nutrient metabolism is altered by hormonal and other physiological changes during pregnancy and lactation. While it is evident that hormonal adjustments affect nutrient requirements, these are rarely considered when nutrient recommen dations are made for pregnant or lactating women, and often neglected during evaluation of nutritional status. In addition, changes in nutrient metabolism during the stages of pregnancy and oflactation are usually considered separately, while in reality events during pregnancy can have a major

Acute clinical illness caused by an infectious process is typically characterized by a catabolic response, which includes loss of body weight, wasting of body protein, anorexia, increased metabolic rate, and negative nitrogen, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, sulfur, and zinc balances. Part of the catabolic response can be reversed in laboratory animal models by providing an adequate supply of amino acid and calories via oral or intravenous route.
