Nutrition is a simple yet wide term if we go for its meaning. The definition of nutrition involves:

  1. Selection and preparation of the food that is needed for growth and life
  2. Ingestion of food (to eat or drink something)
  3. Assimilation of food by the body (the biology of inhalation, composition, and absorption of the food)

Micronutrients are:

  1. Vitamins (Fat-soluble, Water-soluble)
  2. Minerals (Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Potassium, Sodium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Cobalt, Nickel, Phosphorus, Zinc, Iodine, Selenium, Chloride, Molybdenum, Fluoride, Sulpher, Selenium)
  3. Trace elements

Water

Water is not involved in the list, but however, the content will remain incomplete if we do not mention this very important fluid.

Importance of Nutrients

Food is an incomplete term without macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients, which supports health and life. They are stored in the form of energy, fat, and muscle mass, and that’s why a person can survive for 2-8 weeks without taking food. Poor nutrition or malnutrition results in less productivity or poor performance, whereas good nutrition promotes growth and development.

Where nutrition can save one from various chronic diseases, lack of them or poor diet can show its adverse impact on health too. It may cause one to suffer from:

  1. Deficiency diseases: Kwashiorkor and scurvy
  2. Unhealthy conditions: Metabolic syndrome and obesity
  3. Common systemic chronic diseases: Diabetes, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular
