An Introduction to Nutrients


Nutrition is the science of food and its relationship to health. Nutrients are the building blocks of the human body. They are chemicals in foods that are used by the body for growth, maintenance, disease prevention, health restoration, and energy. Nutrients that cannot be synthesized by the body and thus must be derived from the diet are considered essential.
