Expanded and updated, the new edition of Advanced Nutrition: Macronutrients, Micronutrients, and Metabolism continues in the tradition of its predecessor, serving as an essential textbook for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students studying human nutrition.

The book incorporates fundamental concepts in nutrition science—while also acknowledging the contributions made by other sciences such as biochemistry, genetics, and physiology—in order to help us understand why specific nutrients are required. It provides comprehensive coverage of both macro and micronutrients, emphasizing each nutrient’s description, absorption, use, and excretion.

Highlights of the Second Edition include

  • Chapters addressing exercise, obesity, starvation, and trauma
  • Updates with respect to nutrigenomics and nutrient-gene interactions within specific topics
  • Expansion of the aging effects with regard to life cycle and nutrient-specific chapters
  • Nutrition requirement comparisons among different species and animal models for human diseases
  • The chemistry and physiology of each essential nutrient and its integration in the body
  • Chapter summaries, case studies, problem-solving activities, and critical thinking questions
  • Web addresses and expansion and updating of the reference lists at the end of each chapter

Ancillary material designed to enhance the teaching experience is provided for instructors on PowerPoint® slides.
