Nutrition science has evolved considerably in the past decade with
new concepts and discoveries. In response, advanced nutrition
courses now encompass material on macronutrients and
micronutrients, subjects that have traditionally been studied
separately. The brand new edition of Advanced Nutrition:
Macronutrients, Micronutrients, and Metabolism is a completely
updated and expanded revision of two prior works, Advanced
Nutrition Micronutrients and Advanced Nutrition Macronutrients,
Second Edition, combined into one book for the first time. 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 (R) slides of
additional material. These features make it a resource that will
spend more time on the desktop than on the bookshelf.
