English | April 22nd, 2015 | ASIN: B00WKFYTKK, ISBN: 1941908004 | 148 Pages | EPUB | 11.26 MB

Nutrition is more than the food on your plate.

Have you ever promised yourself you'd make better dietary choices tomorrow, only to find yourself stuck in the same routine patterns day in and day out? Have you considered that the way you eat is just part of the picture?

While food is critically important, it is secondary to the area of primary food-loving our lives, moving our bodies, having meaningful careers, and embracing the things that feed us on a mental, emotional, psychological, and spiritual level.

In order to effectively improve our diets, we must be willing to look not only at the food on our plates, but at the experiences that feed us on a daily basis. Primary Food offers a fresh perspective on nutrition-one that considers the aspects of well-being that cannot be measured in calories.

Explore your primary food today, and learn to:
create honest, authentic relationships
make exercise a habit you enjoy
conquer your limitations and find a career path that suits you
align with who you are as a spiritual being
bring meaning, balance, and purpose to everything you do

Blackwell Publishing | ISBN: 0632064781 | 2004-11-01 | 448 pages | PDF | 5 Mb This single-source reference draws together the current knowledge of the vitamins' biological properties in the context of human nutrition. Vitamins are co-enzymes, antioxidants or precursors of hormones and are therefore involved in a great many biochemical and physiological processes. They play a vital role in the maintenance of health, and there is evidence that dietary sources of vitamins have beneficial effects in the prevention of heart-related diseases, bone diseases and possibly cancer. Following introductory chapters on historical and nutritional aspects of vitamins, the next four chapters cover relevant and detailed aspects of physiology and functional anatomy, biochemistry, immunology and the regulation of protein synthesis by nuclear hormone receptors. These background chapters, supported by a glossary of terms, provide the scientific principles upon which vitamin functions are based. The following thirteen chapters deal with each vitamin in turn. Subject areas include chemical structure, intestinal absorption, transport, metabolism, biochemical and physiological actions, immunoregulatory properties, deficiency-related diseases and potential toxicity. An extensive bibliography refers the reader to the original research literature. Vitamins is aimed at nutritionists, biochemists, physiologists and physicians whether they be researchers, teachers or students. Food scientists, food technologists and many others working in the health professions will also find much of use and interest in the book. The inclusion of the theoretical principles in the background chapters makes the book an ideal starting point for those working outside the area who need a solid overview of the subject.
