Nutrition and Physiology

Nutrients are broadly classified into two types – Macronutrients and Micronutrients. Macronutrients are those which are required by our body in large amounts (carbohydrates, proteins, lipids) while micronutrients are required in small amounts (vitamins and minerals). Macronutrients are responsible for structural development and energy requirement. Nutrition physiology is the study of the effect of the nutrients on the body’s metabolism and how it functions.

Depending on requirements nutrition can be classified into various types like:

Clinical Nutrition: Nutrition of patients in health care.

Maternal Nutrition: Nutrition of mothers while they bear and nurture children.

Paediatric Nutrition: Nutrition of children so that they are exposed to all the required nutrients essential for healthy growth.

Sports Nutrition: Nutritional requirements of sportspersons, especially the quantity of food and fluids consumed by athletes to optimize their activity.

This track will also discuss the metabolism of the various nutrients and their nutritive value.
