Advanced Nutrition: Micronutrients

Advanced Nutrition: Micronutrients, a continuation of the first Advanced Nutrition text on macronutrients, focuses on how vitamins and minerals operate at the genomic level. It reflects the major research endeavors by nutrition scientists throughout the world in studying nutrient-gene, nutrient-nutrient, and nutrient-drug interactions. The book is organized in units-ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level courses-as well as for research. Unit 1 provides an overview of the effects of micronutrients on human health. Unit 2 discusses the integration of functional aspects of vitamins and minerals. The next three units, fat-soluble vitamins, water-soluble vitamins, and other organic nutrients, provide important data such as:
