Abstract(RBIP-149)

Nutrient is a chemical that an organization needs to live and grow or a substance used in an organism’s metabolism which must be taken in from its environment. They are used to build and repair tissues, regulate body. Processes and are converted to and used as energy. A nutrient is said to be “essential” if it must be obtained from an external source, either because the organism cannot synthesize it or produces insufficient quantities. Nutrients needed in very small amounts are micronutrients and those that are needed in larger quantities are called macronutrients. Organic nutrients include carbohydrates, fats, proteins and vitamins. Inorganic compounds such as dietary minerals, water and oxygen may also be considered nutrients. Nutrients do not work alone but is concert (synergistically) with other nutrients. The benefits of deriving nutrients from eating fresh whole foods such as those included on the list of the worlds. Healthiest foods are that they provide not only an abundance of individual nutrients but also the variety necessary for their optimal functions. The organic nutrients are: 1. Proteins – Essential to growth and repair of muscle and other body tissues. 2. Fats – One source of energy and important in relation to fat soluble vitamins. 3. Carbohydrate – It is the main source of energy. 4. Minerals – It is those inorganic elements occurring in the body and which are critical to its normal functions. 5. Vitamins – It is water and fats soluble vitamins play important roles in many chemical processes in the body. The inorganic nutrients are: 1. Water – It is essential to normal body function – as vehicle for carrying other nutrients and because 60% of the human body is water. 2. Roughage – the fibrous indigestible portion of our diet essential to health of the digestive system.
