Current, comprehensive, and redesigned, longtime best seller ADVANCED NUTRITION AND HUMAN METABOLISM, 5e, couples its signature quality content with a new, more accessible presentation for students--and stronger support for instructors. With a new design and an updated, user-friendly art program, this respected market leader is packed with relevant examples, illustrations, applications, tables, and figures to emphasize key concepts for students. The text continues to set the standard through the authors' ability to clearly and accurately explain even the most complex metabolic processes and concepts. It remains the only book in the market written for the undergraduate student, and it stays at that level consistently. With thorough, detailed coverage, the text provides a sophisticated understanding of digestion, absorption, and metabolism of fat, protein, and carbohydrates. It covers the biochemistry of vitamins, minerals, and energy nutrients. It also examines the structure and function of water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins and their regulatory role in metabolism, looks at electrolyte and fluid balance, and covers the role of nutrition in the development or exacerbation of chronic disease. In addition to more student accessibility, the new edition includes stronger instructor support. The Multimedia Manager Instructor's Resource CD-ROM includes a PowerPoint package redesigned to be a more useful teaching tool. With ADVANCED NUTRITION AND HUMAN METABOLISM, 5e, your students will be well prepared as they continue their journey in the field of nutrition.
