Information on Nutritional Notes

Our body is made up of atoms, molecules and cells which are continually moving and changing, even though the structures of our tissues and organs and our external appearance remain relatively constant. As we maintain our body, our energy and nutrients deplete and whereby we will have to constantly replenish these loss from foods that we consume. Examples of this nutrients that are continuously depleted in order to maintain our body are minerals such as iron, which is lost from the body by excretion and water, a compound derived from two elements - hydrogen and oxygen. Minerals and water do not contain carbon. The other four classes of nutrients, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids and vitamins, are more complex. These nutrients contain oxygen, hydrogen and carbon, an element found in all living things. Carbohydrate, fat and protein are the three energy-yielding nutrients that are required by our bodies in relatively large amounts. Whereas, vitamins and minerals are required by our bodies only in a small amount. We need to be constantly nourished to maintain a good healthy life.
