NUTRITIONAL BIOCHEMISTRY

NUTRITIONAL BIOCHEMISTRY

By presenting actual studies, "Nutritional Biochemistry" is an exciting and unique book that allows students to receive a hands-on perspective of the field. Each case study either leads to a subsequent discovery or enables an understanding of the physiologic mechanisms of action of various nutrition-related processes. This "real-world" approach allows students to come away with a realistically informed view of the basis for much of our understanding of nutritional biochemistry. The text: integrates biochemistry and nutrition in a case-oriented method; emphasizes a "hands-on" approach to learning - case histories and clinical and research data illustrate all major points; places emphasis on metabolism - metabolic pathways, enzymology, and nutrient requirements (including new RDA values); contains clinical nutrition applications - new functions of zinc, new drugs for ulcers, monounsaturated fatty acids and their use in treating cardiovascular diseases.
