Nutrients Meaning in Hindi : Healthy Nutrition, पोषक तत्व (न्यूट्रिएंट्स)

Here, we are going to explain the nutrients meaning in Hindi language. You would be enjoy the article. So, keep learning with patience. It would be helpful to every common countryman of India.

पोषक तत्व (Nutrients meaning in Hindi) क्या है ?

भोजन से प्राप्त होने वाले वो रसायनिक पदार्थ (केमिकल सब्सटेंस), जो किसी भी जीव के शरीर के विकास, मरम्मत, रखरखाव और प्रजनन(रिप्रोडक्शन) प्रक्रियाओं के लिए अनिवार्य होते हैं, उन्हें पोषक तत्व कहा जाता है।

पोषक तत्व शरीर को पोषण प्रदान करते हैं और शरीर के विकास और रखरखाव के लिए अति आवश्यक है। पोषक तत्वों के हमारे शरीर में विशिष्ट कार्य हैं और उनके कार्य के अनुसार ही उनकी भिन्न-भिन्न मात्राएं हमारे शरीर को चाहिए होती है।

कृपया ध्यान में रखें कि पोषक तत्व(न्यूट्रिएंट्स) हमारे शरीर के पोषण का स्रोत हैं, जैसे भोजन, जो जीव द्वारा ऊर्जा में परिवर्तित किया जाता है। जबकि पोषण विज्ञान(न्यूट्रीशन) एक जैविक क्रिया है, जिसके अंतर्गत भोजन का पाचन करके अवशेष पदार्थो को शरीर से निष्कासित किया जाता है।

अलग-अलग प्रकार के जीवों की, आवश्यक पोषक तत्वों की जरूरतें अलग-अलग होती हैं।

बड़े पैमाने पर देखा जाए तो पोषक तत्वों को दो वर्गों में बांटा गया है।

पहला, जैविक या अकार्बनिक (ऑर्गेनिक)

दूसरा, अजैविक या अकार्बनिक (इनऑर्गेनिक)

जैविक(ऑर्गेनिक) पोषक तत्वों में ऐसे योगिक(कंपाउंड्स) सम्मिलित होते हैं जिनमें कार्बन शामिल होता है।

अजैविक(इनऑर्गेनिक) पोषक तत्वों में ऐसे योगिक(कंपाउंड्स) सम्मिलित होते हैं जिनमें कार्बन शामिल नहीं होता है।

जानवरों की तुलना में पेड़-पौधों के पोषक तत्वों की जरूरतें बदलती रहती हैं और अलग भी होती हैं, क्योंकि पेड़ पौधे बहुत से पोषक तत्वों को खुद ही निर्मित करते रहते हैं। पेड़ पौधों को लगभग 17 पोषक तत्वों(न्यूट्रिएंट्स) की जरूरत होती है जिनमें से 9 मैक्रोन्यूट्रिएंट्स हैं (nitrogen (N), phosphorus(P), potassium(K), calcium(Ca), sulfur(S), magnesium(Mg), carbon (C), oxygen(O) and hydrogen(H)) और 8 माइक्रोन्यूट्रिएंट्स होते हैं (iron (Fe), boron (B), chlorine (Cl), manganese (Mn), zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), molybdenum (Mo) and nickel (Ni)).


किसी भी जीव के पोषक तत्वों की आवश्यकता के आधार पर पोषक तत्वों को दो वर्गों में बांटा गया है

मैक्रोन्यूट्रिएंट्स(Macro-nutrients)

पहला, मैक्रोन्यूट्रिएंट्स: इस वर्ग के अंतर्गत वे पोषक तत्व आते हैं, जो जीवों को अधिक मात्रा में चाहिए होते हैं (ग्राम्स या ओंस )

  • इसके अंतर्गत रासायनिक पदार्थ जैसे- कार्बोहाइड्रेट, प्रोटीन, फैट और पानी आते हैं।
  • इसके अंतर्गत रासायनिक तत्व जैसे कार्बन, हाइड्रोजन, ऑक्सीजन, नाइट्रोजन, सल्फर और फास्फोरस आते हैं। यह 6 रासायनिक तत्व सभी जीवों के लिए मैक्रोन्यूट्रिएंट्स हैं।
  • माइक्रोन्यूट्रिएंट्स जीवो को विकास और रखरखाव के लिए ऊर्जा प्रदान करते हैं
  • जीवों के शारीरिक निर्माण में अहम भूमिका निभाते हैं।
  • कार्बोहाइड्रेट ऐसे पदार्थ हैं जो अलग-अलग प्रकार के शुगर से मिलकर बनते हैं। कार्बोहाइड्रेट को चार प्रकारों में वर्गीकृत किया गया है पहला, मोनोसैकेराइड्स दूसरा,डाईसैकेराइड्स तीसरा, ओलिगोसैकेराइड्स और चौथा पॉलिसैकेराइड्स।
  • प्रोटीन जैविक पदार्थ हैं, जो अमीनो एसिड्स से मिलकर बने हुए होते हैं और अलग-अलग प्रकार के अमीनो एसिड्स आपस में पेप्टाइड बॉन्ड से जुड़े हुए होते हैं। प्रोटीन भोजन के रूप में लिया जाता है और शरीर में पाचन क्रिया के दौरान प्रोटीएज नामक एंजाइम की सहायता से दोबारा अमीनो एसिड्स में तोड़ा जाता है ताकि अमीनो एसिड्स की अलग-अलग संरचनायें शरीर के विभिन्न हिस्सों में कार्य अनुसार प्रतिक्रिया में सहायक बने।
  • फैट्स या वसा, ग्लिसरीन और फैटी एसिड का मिलाजुला योगिक है, जिसमें कोलेस्ट्रॉल, ट्राइग्लिसराइड, एचडीएल, एलडीएल, वीएलडीएल आदि का भी योगदान रहता है।
    • ऊर्जा प्राप्ति: फैट्स (9 किलो कैलोरी पर ग्राम), प्रोटीन (4 किलो कैलोरी पर ग्राम), कार्बोहाइड्रेट्स (4 किलो कैलोरी पर ग्राम)। शरीर के कार्यों को करने के लिए जिस ऊर्जा की आवश्यकता शरीर को होती है वह ऊर्जा सबसे पहले कार्बोहाइड्रेट्स से, फिर फैक्ट्स से और अंत में प्रोटीन से ली जाता है।

माइक्रोन्यूट्रिएंट्स(Micro-nutrients)

दूसरा, माइक्रोन्यूट्रिएंट्स: इस वर्ग के अंतर्गत वे पोषक तत्व आते हैं, जो जीवों द्वारा मैक्रोन्यूट्रिएंट्स की तुलना में कम मात्रा में चाहिए होते हैं (मिलीग्राम या माइक्रोग्राम )

  • इस वर्ग में विटामिन और मिनरल सम्मिलित हैं।
  • कोशिकाओं के जैव-रासायनिक और शारीरिक कार्यों के लिए अनिवार्य हैं।
  • शरीर को बैक्टीरिया, वायरस आदि से बचाने में अहम भूमिका निभाते हैं।
  • मिनरल्स एसे तत्व हैं, जो चयापचय(मेटाबोलिक) क्रियाओं के लिए अति आवश्यक होते हैं।
  • विटामिंस एसे जैविक पदार्थ हैं, जो हमारे शरीर के लिए अति आवश्यक हैं और भिन्न भिन्न प्रकार के प्रोटींस के लिए को-फैक्टर या को-एंजाइम की तरह काम करते हैं तथा मेटाबोलिक नियंत्रक और एंटीऑक्सीडेंट्स की भूमिका भी निभाते हैं।
  • विटामिन्स की कमी से बीमारी होती है। लेकिन मिनरल्स की कमी से मौत भी हो सकती है, क्योंकि हमारे अंग प्रणाली में, मिनरल्स के बहुत ही अहम् कार्य होते हैं, जैसे- आयरन की कमी से शरीर में हिमोग्लोबिन का कम होना, कैल्शियम की कमी से हार्ट अटैक होने की संभावना आदि।

आवश्यक पोषक तत्व(एसेंशियल न्यूट्रिएंट्स)

ऐसे पोषक तत्व जो किसी जीव द्वारा उसकी शारीरिक और जैव रासायनिक क्रियाओं के लिए आवश्यक होते हैं। लेकिन उन पोषक तत्वों का जीव के शरीर में या तो अभाव होता है या फिर जीव के शरीर में बनते ही नहीं है। साधारण भाषा में हम यह कह सकते हैं कि जीव को उन पोषक तत्व को भोजन के रूप में बाहर से लेना होता है।

  • भोजन से ही लेना होता है।
  • मेटाबोलिक क्रियाओं के लिए अति आवश्यक पोषक तत्व होते हैं।
  • आवश्यक पोषक तत्वों की सूची: 9 अमीनो एसिड्स (phenylalanine, valine, threonine, tryptophan, methionine, leucine, isoleucine, lysine, and histidine), 2 फैटी एसिड्स (alpha-linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid) and linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid)), 13 विटामिंस (vitamins A, C, D, E(tocopherols and tocotrienols), K, thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B7), folate (B9), and cobalamin (B12), 15 मिनरल्स (potassium, chloride, sodium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese, copper, iodine, chromium, molybdenum, selenium and cobalt (component of vitamin B12).
  • उत्तम स्वास्थ्य प्राप्त करने के लिए, हमें इन पोषक तत्वों को अच्छे भोजन के साथ साथ खाद्य सप्लीमेंट्स के रूप में भी अलग से लेना होता है।

अनावश्यक या गैर जरूरी पोषक तत्व

ऐसे पोषक तत्व जो किसी भी जीव के शारीरिक और जैव रासायनिक क्रियाओं के लिए आवश्यक होते हैं। लेकिन उन्हें बाहर से लेने की आवश्यकता नहीं होती है, क्योंकि वे पोषक तत्व जीव के शरीर में स्वतः ही निर्मित होते रहते हैं एवं बाहरी स्रोत या शरीर में उनकी उचित मात्रा उपलब्ध होती है।

  • शरीर में खुद ही बनते रहते हैं।
  • खाद्य सप्लीमेंट्स के रूप में लेने की आवश्यकता नहीं है।

फाइटोन्यूट्रिएंट्स या प्लांट न्यूट्रिएंट्स

पेड़ पौधों से प्राप्त होने वाले मुख्य पोषक तत्वों को फाइटोन्यूट्रिएंट्स या प्लांट बेस्ड न्यूट्रिएंट्स कहा जाता है। ये पोषक तत्व पौधों से प्राप्त होने वाले रासायनिक तत्वों के रूप में जाने जाते हैं जिनमें पौधों से प्राप्त होने वाले पोषक और ग़ैर-पोषक तत्व दोनों ही सम्मिलित होते हैं। जैसे पॉलिफिनॉल्स, फ्लेवोनॉयड्स, रेसवेराट्रॉल और लिगनेंस आदि।

Phyto-nutrients are plant based compounds which are rich in antioxidants and are key ingredients to help neutralize free radical damages.

Combination of vitamins and minerals with phyto-nutrients induces high potential effect of nutrients for empowering immune system of an organism.
  • इनमें शक्तिशाली एंटीऑक्सीडेंट प्रभाव होते हैं। हम देखते हैं कि पेड़ पौधों का जीवन लंबा और शानदार होता है।
  • ये पोषक तत्व पेड़-पौधों के रंग और छिलके से प्राप्त होते हैं।
  • अभी भी इन तत्वों की खोजबीन जारी है कि, ये जीवों के स्वास्थ्य को बेहतर बनाने में कितने समर्थ हैं।

Nutrients meaning in English.

You might have learnt so much things about nutrients meaning in Hindi. This article would be helpful to you. So, please feel free to share your feelings with us to grow more in life. Normally, it is tough to find exact nutrients meaning in Hindi language. But, here you found lots of information about different types of nutrients in Hindi version.


Wonderful Health Tips in Hindi for Your Healthy and Wealthy Life

“Health is Wealth” is a very common proverb among us. But many of us are not aware about it. The role of health and fitness in our life is most valuable to achieve optimal health. Here, we are going to elaborate the facts of healthy life in Hindi. So, you are welcome to check health tips in Hindi language.

स्वास्थ्य क्या है ? (#Health tips in Hindi)

साधारण तौर पर अगर कहा जाए कि स्वास्थ्य क्या है ? तो हमारे समाज में यह समझा जाता है कि किसी भी व्यक्ति को यदि कोई बीमारी नहीं है तो वह व्यक्ति स्वस्थ है। यहां तक समझा जाता है कि किसी व्यक्ति को कोई चोट, कमजोरी या दर्द नहीं है तो वह व्यक्ति स्वस्थ है।

परंतु ,

डब्ल्यूएचओ, WHO (विश्व स्वास्थ्य संगठन) क्या कहता है?

डब्ल्यूएचओ, WHO स्वास्थ की व्याख्या करते हुए कहता है कि यह वह अवस्था है जिसमें कोई भी व्यक्ति शारीरिक, मानसिक और सामाजिक रूप से पूरी तरह स्वस्थ होता है। केवल रोगों का अभाव होना ही अच्छा स्वास्थ्य होना नहीं है।

(अच्छा स्वास्थ्य = शारीरिक + मानसिक + सामाजिक स्थिति )

हमारे शरीर, मस्तिष्क और व्यवहार के बीच का अच्छा संतुलन ही हमारे अच्छे स्वास्थ्य को दर्शाता है।

शारीरिक अवस्था (शरीर संबंधी)/ #Physical Health

  • शरीर की संरचनात्मक अवस्था संबंधी
  • भौतिक अवस्था
  • जैविक-रासायनिक अवस्था
  • शारीरिक अवस्था की जांच करने के लिए एंथ्रोपोमेट्रिक तरीके, सीवीसी (कंपलीट ब्लड काउंट टेस्ट), सीयूटी (कंप्लीट यूरिन टेस्ट), केएफटी (किडनी फेल टेस्ट), एलएफटी (लिवर फेलर टेस्ट), आर एस टी (रिनल फैलियर टेस्ट) आदि का उपयोग किया जाता है।

मानसिक अवस्था (मस्तिष्क से संबंधी)/ #Mental Health

  • मनोवैज्ञानिक अवस्था
  • आध्यात्मिक अवस्था
  • जीवन जीने की शैली
  • दूसरों के साथ संबंध
  • तनाव का स्तर
  • मानसिक अवस्था की जांच आइक्यू टेस्ट, पर्सनैलिटी टेस्ट आदि से की जाती है।
  • मानसिक परेशानियों का पता अनेक प्रकार के लक्षणों के अनुभव और अवलोकन के बाद ही चलता है और जिसका परिणाम साइकेट्रिक डायग्नोसिस के रूप में मिलता है। जबकि मनोवैज्ञानिक समस्याओं के साथ, चिकित्सक रोगी के सामाजिक और वातावरणिक कारकों से प्रभावित लक्षणों की परिकल्पना तैयार करता है।

सामाजिक अवस्था (व्यवहार से संबंधी)/ #Social Health

  • परिवेश में रहने का तरीका
  • सांस्कृतिक रूप
  • परंपरागत जीवन यापन
  • समाज में बातचीत करने का तरीका
  • किसी भी व्यक्ति के सामाजिक अवस्था की जांच उसकी व्यक्तिगत और सामाजिक व्यवहार उसकी साक्षरता का स्तर उसका रोजगार समाज में सम्मान बातचीत करने की योग्यता आदि से की जाती हैं।

इसके अलावा सर्वोत्तम स्वास्थ्य को हम यह भी कह सकते हैं कि यह वह अवस्था है जिसे हम शारीरिक व्यायाम, सकारात्मक मानसिक व्यवहार, उचित आराम और अच्छा पोषण लेकर प्राप्त कर सकते हैं।

सर्वोत्तम स्वास्थ्य के स्तंभ (Pillars: Health tips in Hindi)

पहला E(शारीरिक व्यायाम )

दूसरा A(सकारात्मक व्यवहार या रवैया )

तीसरा R(उचित आराम )

चौथा N(अच्छा पोषण )

इसलिए हम कहते हैं कि सर्वोत्तम स्वास्थ्य अपने आप नहीं मिलता है, उसे हमें कमाना (EARN) पड़ता है।

E(शारीरिक व्यायाम)= चिकित्सा विज्ञान और चिकित्सकों का अनुभव और सुझाव है कि हर व्यक्ति को दिन में कम से कम 30 से 45 मिनट शारीरिक व्यायाम करना चाहिए जिसमें पसीना निकलता हो।

A(सकारात्मक व्यवहार या रवैया)= दुनिया के हर एक सफल व्यक्ति का सुझाव है कि किसी भी क्षेत्र में सफलता प्राप्त करने के लिए सकारात्मक व्यवहार होना आवश्यक है और इस सकारात्मक व्यवहार को लाने के लिए हमें प्रतिदिन लगातार सकारात्मक किताबें पढ़ना चाहिए और उत्साहित करने वाली सकारात्मक ऑडियो या वीडियो सुनने/देखने चाहिए।

R(उचित आराम)= चिकित्सा विशेषज्ञों के अनुसार हर किसी व्यक्ति को रोजाना कम से कम 6 से 8 घंटे की नींद (घोड़े बेचके सोना) लेनी चाहिए।

N(अच्छा पोषण)= शरीर की हर एक कोशिका के विकास, मरम्मत, रखरखाव और बाहरी तत्वों से रक्षा करने के लिए प्रतिरोधक क्षमता को अच्छे पोषण के साथ ही प्राप्त किया जा सकता है।

इलाज से बेहतर रोकथाम है। इसलिए सावधान रहिए, अपनी स्वास्थ्य अवस्था के लिए सचेत रहिए एवं अपने और अपने चारों ओर के वातावरण को बचाए।

What Are Best and Powerful Macro Minerals and Their Functions

Do you know about macro minerals and their functions. In addition, we will share their types, sources, deficiencies and toxicity effects. Here is the detail of minerals like calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, chloride, potassium and sulfur.

Micro-nutrients (Micro means very small)

Nutrients, which are required in very much smaller qualities as compared to macro-nutrients in the body of an organism.

Types of micro-nutrients

  1. Vitamins (organic compounds): Water-soluble & Fat-soluble vitamins.
  2. Minerals (inorganic compounds): Macro-minerals & Trace minerals.

A). VITAMINS

Vitamins are micro organic compounds. These are made up by plants and animals which can be broken down by heat, acid or air.

Categorized into two types: i). Water-soluble & ii). Fat-soluble vitamins.

i). Water-soluble vitamins (Vitamin-B group & C)

ii). Fat-soluble vitamins (Vitamin A, D, E, K)

B). MINERALS

Minerals are inorganic compounds present in soil or water and cannot be broken down.

Categorized into two types: i). Major or Macro-minerals & ii). Trace minerals.

i). Major or Macro-minerals

Minerals which are required by an organism in greater amount (in mg) than trace minerals for performing specific functions of body.

Macro minerals and their functions

Calcium
  • Calcium: (RDA = 600-800 mg/day)
    • It is present in our body in greatest amount.
    • Mostly calcium in concentrated in the bones and teeth i.e. appx. 1000-2000gm.
    • Blood calcium level must be maintained within limits (9-11 mg/dl). Above range, it leads to muscle stiffness and below range, it leads to uncontrolled muscular contraction. Low blood calcium level occurs due to deficiency of Vit-D or due to abnormal parathyroid hormones.
    • Functions:
      • Active role in various metabolic reactions e.g. muscle function (contraction & relaxation), blood vessel contraction, blood clotting, heart functioning etc.
      • Helps in bone health with proper structure/rigidity/strength and functioning of bones & teeth.
      • Helps in blood pressure regulation and protection against hypertension.

Facts on the Importance of Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA)

What is recommended dietary allowance

The Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA)are the safe intake levels of the essential nutrients. These levels are found to be adequate or sufficient to meet the nutrients requirement of nearly all healthy individuals in a specific life stage along with gender group.

( RDA INTAKE = NUTRIENTS REQUIREMENT + SAFETY MARGIN )

Every organism need a wide range of nutrients to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. The amount of each nutrient requirement for an individual depends on his/her age, body weight, physical activity, physiological states i.e. pregnancy, lactation etc. So, the requirement of all nutrients varies from individual to individual.

Nutrient requirement is the requirement of particular nutrient in the minimum amount that needs to be consumed by an organism. It is used for preventing from the symptom of deficiencies. Also, it is required to maintain adequate level of the nutrient in the body of an organism.

RDA Chart for Vitamin A, Vitamin B – group and Vitamin C ( Report by a expert group of ICMR- Indian Council Of Medical Research)
RDA Chart for Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B7 and Vitamin B5
Displays RDA Chart for amino acids
RDA Chart for carbohydrates, protein, fats, calcium, iron, zinc and magnesium
RDA Chart for chloride, chromium, copper, iodine, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and sodium

Importance of RDA standards

  • RDA helps in comparing RDA intakes of individuals that allows in making estimation for probable risk of deficiency among individuals.
  • It helps in upgrading the nutrient requirements in clinical management of diseases.
  • Helps public health nutritionists to compose diets for schools, hospitals, gyms, fitness classes, an individual etc.
  • It helps in designing, developing nutrition programmes and policies for health care policy makers and public health nutritionists.
  • Helps in planning and procuring food supplies for different groups of population.
  • It helps in evaluating the adequacy of food supplies in meeting national nutritional needs.
  • RDA helps in making food consumption records of individuals and populations.
  • Helps in establishing standards for the national feeding programmes, implemented by the Government for its vulnerable population.
  • Helps in providing nutritional education programmes for the groups of population.
  • It helps in searching and developing new food product ranges and dietary supplements by the industry. It is beneficial for enhancing health of an individual.
  • RDA helps in establishing guidelines for the national labeling of packaged foods. In India it is done by Food Standards Safety Authority of India (FSSAI).

We can say that the RDA is just like a minimum level of lubrication oil in our vehicle engine (Engine represents our body).

If lubrication oil level of vehicle engine is low, then engine will run for sometime but not for a long life.

In same way, if RDA is not followed by us, we will run for sometime but not for a long life.

Fat Soluble Vitamin Functions, Sources and Definition

Here, we are going to know about fat soluble vitamin functions deeply. But, before that we need to understand basics about micro nutrients.

Micro-nutrients (Micro means very small)

Nutrients, which are required in very much smaller qualities as compared to macro-nutrients in the body of an organism.

Types of micro-nutrients

  1. Vitamins (organic compounds): Water-soluble & Fat-soluble vitamins.
  2. Minerals (inorganic compounds): Macro-minerals & Trace minerals.

A). VITAMINS

Vitamins are micro organic compounds, made up by plants and animals which can be broken down by heat, acid or air.

Categorized into two types:

i). Water-soluble &

ii). Fat-soluble vitamins.

i). Water soluble vitamins

Vitamin-B group & Vitamin C

ii). Fat soluble vitamins

Vitamin A, D, E and K:

Vitamins which doesn’t dissolve in water and best dissolve in fat or a source of fat. After complete absorption and consumption of these vitamins, they stored in liver and fatty/muscle tissues for a future purpose of body requirement.

Fat-soluble vitamin functions and feautures
Vitamin A
  • Vitamin A: (RDA= 600 mcg(µg)/day (retinol) & 4800 µg/day (beta-carotene)),mcg means microgram.
    • Exist in 2 natural forms = Retinol (animal source) & Beta-carotene (plant source)
    • Functions: Helps in vision/eye health (specially night vision), cell division, healthy skin, organ functioning and building immunity, healthy liver and bone health.

Vitamins Soluble in Water with Powerful Benefits for Healthy Life: Nutrients

Which vitamins are soluble in water? Here, you will get deep knowledge about vitamins soluble in water. So, look ahead and enjoy the article.

Micro-nutrients (Micro means very small)

Nutrients which are required in very much smaller qualities as compared to macro-nutrients in the body of an organism.

They are essential as much as macro-nutrients, for biochemical reactions and physiological actions in the body of an organism.

Micro-nutrients help in metabolism (biochemical processes in living organism) of macro-nutrients in living organisms. So, in our daily diet both types of nutrients are important for our healthy lifestyle.

Types of micro-nutrients

  1. Vitamins (organic compounds): Water-soluble & Fat-soluble vitamins.
  2. Minerals (inorganic compounds): Macro-minerals & Trace minerals.

Vitamins

Variety of food has different amount of nutrients i.e. phyto-nutrients, vitamins and minerals etc. so we must intake variety of foods to get enough amount of all nutrients.

healthjaagran

Vitamins are micro organic compounds, made up by plants and animals which can be broken down by heat, acid or air.

Categorized into two types:

i). Water-soluble (vitamins soluble in water) &

ii). Fat-soluble vitamins (soluble in fat).

Water-soluble vitamins (Vitamin-B group & C)

Vitamins which are dissolve in water and not easily stored in our body. They get removed out with urine when consumed in excess amount. Basically, these are vitamins soluble in water.

Salient features of water-soluble vitamins

Vitamin B1
  • Most of Vitamins B act as coenzymes that help in triggering chemical reactions which are essential for energy production.
  • Vitamin B1 (Thiamine): (RDA= 1.0 to 1.7 mg/day)
    • Found in unpolished and unmilled grains.
    • Functions: Helps in converting nutrient into energy i.e. carbohydrate and protein metabolism, nervous system, genetic synthesis (RNA & DNA), regular growth and uterus health.
    • Sources: Whole wheat, Kidney beans, Soy bean, Gram, Peanut, Sunflower seed, Sesame seed, Green pea, Cabbage, Mushroom, Egg, Orange, Watermelon, Yeast, Fish, Brown rice etc.
    • Excess tea and coffee lowers thiamine absorption level.
    • Baking soda in cooking hampers vitamin absorption rate.
    • Deficiencies: Dry beri-beri (nervous & muscular system), Wet beri-beri (Cardiovascular & Neurological system), Infantile beri-beri (breast feed infants), Cerebral beri-beri (in alcoholics).

Nutrients Definition and Powerful Benefits of Nutrients in The World

Nutrients are the fuel of your body. These can be taken only from outside through food. Do you know the powerful benefits of nutrients and Why do you need nutrients for your body? In fact, nutrients definition with their types and roles, must be clear in your mind for living with healthy food and happy lifestyle.

Nutrients
Nutrients and their powerful benefits

Hence, there may be lot of questions in your mind about facts of nutrients, nutrients definition and their functions in your body. But those doubts will be cleared here. Now, it depends on you whether you check given below information deeply or just on surface.

So, let starts from basics of nutrients definition.

Nutrients Definition

Nutrients are: The chemical substances present in the food. Although, these chemical substances must be supplied to the body of an organism in proper amount for its growth, repairing, maintenance and reproduction activities.

Nutrients provide body nourishment. These are essential for maintenance of life and growth. Also, different type of nutrients perform specific function in your body and required in different amounts.

Please keep in mind that nutrient is a source of nourishment such as food, that can be metabolized by an organism for giving energy and building tissues. While, nutrition is the organic process by which an organism assimilates food.

Different types of organism have different essential nutrients. Nutrients are categorized as Organic and Inorganic. Plants nutritional requirement varies as compared with animals because plants synthesize many of nutrients itself. Although, total no. of 17 nutrients are required by plants. But out of these nutrients, 9 nos. of nutrients (nitrogen (N), phosphorus(P), potassium(K), calcium(Ca), sulfur(S), magnesium(Mg), carbon (C), oxygen(O) and hydrogen(H)) are macro-nutrients and 8 nos. of nutrients (iron (Fe), boron (B), chlorine (Cl), manganese (Mn), zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), molybdenum (Mo) and nickel (Ni)) are micro-nutrients.

Broad classification of nutrients

Organic nutrients

Include carbon containing compounds.

Inorganic nutrients

Include non-carbon containing compounds.

for example iron, selenium, zinc containing compounds.


Classification of nutrients as per functions

Energy giving nutrients

Major nutrients responsible for providing energy are carbohydrates and fats. These help in providing energy for doing daily routine activities.

Body building nutrients

Major nutrient that is responsible for body building is protein. It helps in growing body by formation of new tissues.

Protective nutrients

Major nutrients those are responsible for performing defence mechanism of our body are vitamins and minerals. These nutrients help in protecting our body from infections by building immune system.

Regulatory nutrients

Major nutrients are vitamins, minerals and water. These helps in maintaining regulatory function of body like fluid balance, body temperature etc.


Nutrients classification as per describing nutritional requirement of organisms

A. Macro nutrients definition & function

Nutrients consumed in large amounts (grams or ounces).

  • Includes chemical compounds i.e. Carbohydrates, Fat, Protein and Water.
  • Includes chemical elements i.e. CHNOPS (Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Phosphorus, Sulphur). These 6 elemental nutrients are macronutrients for all organisms.
  • Used to provide energy for growth and maintenance of an organism.
  • Play role in giving energy and body building of an organism.

Carbohydrate

  • Carbohydrates are compounds made up of types of sugars. They are classified as monosaccharides, disaccharides, oligosaccharides & polysaccharides.

Protein

  • Proteins are organic compounds consist of amino acids which are joined by peptide bonds. Through digestion, proteins broken down back into amino acids with the help of proteases.

Fat

  • Fats are glycerin molecules with fatty acids. Fatty acids are molecules with -COOH group attached to unbranched hydrocarbon chains.
  • Energy content: Fat(9kcal/gm), Protein(4kcal/gm) & Carbs(4kcal/gm).

Plant nutrient

Plant nutrient

Plant nutrient

Micro-nutrient

B. Micro nutrients definition & function

Nutrients consumed in small amounts (milligrams or micrograms).

  • Includes Vitamins and Minerals.
  • Biochemical and physiological functions in cellular processes, like vascular functions and nerve conduction.
  • Play role in protection of an organism from foreign particles e.g. bacteria, viruses etc.
  • Minerals are trace elements and essential for metabolic activities.
  • Vitamins are organic compounds essential for our body and act as a co-factors or co-enzymes for various proteins in our body, metabolic regulators or antioxidants.
  • Vitamin deficiency lead to diseases but Minerals deficiency can cause even death because minerals have vital role in functioning of organ system e.g. lack of hemoglobin due to iron deficiency, heart attack due to calcium deficiency etc.

Essential nutrients: Definition & Function

Nutrients required for normal physiological or biochemical operations in an organism which are not synthesized in the body either completely or in sufficient quantity.

  • Must be taken from dietary sources.
  • Relevant for various metabolic activities.
  • Detail of essential nutrients : 9 amino acids (phenylalanine, valine, threonine, tryptophan, methionine, leucine, isoleucine, lysine, and histidine). 2 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid) and linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid)). 13 vitamins (vitamins A, C, D, E(tocopherols and tocotrienols), K, thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B7), folate (B9), and cobalamin (B12). 15 minerals (potassium, chloride, sodium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese, copper, iodine, chromium, molybdenum, selenium and cobalt (component of vitamin B12).
  • Need to take additionally from dietary supplements for optimum health.

Non-essential nutrients: Definition & Function

Substances within foods that can have a significant impact on health and found abundantly in body and resources. Also available in sufficient amount for body functions.

  • Can be synthesized in our body.
  • Need not to take additionally from dietary supplements.

Phyto-nutrients: Definition & Function

Means plant based nutrients. These are phytochemicals those include all nutritional and non-nutritional components of plants e.g. polyphenols, flavonoids, resveratrol, and lignans.

Phyto-nutrients are plant based compounds which are rich in antioxidants and are key ingredients to help neutralize free radical damages.

Combination of vitamins and minerals with phyto-nutrients induces high potential effect of nutrients for empowering immune system of an organism.
  • They have strong antioxidant effects. We observe that plants have long and effective life span.
  • Found in plant colors and peels.
  • Phytochemicals are still under researches for knowing their potentials on human health.

Healthy food and healthy life

Antoine Lavoisier (French chemist), is known as Father of Nutrition & Chemistry”. In 1770, he discovered the concept of metabolism. Most importantly, metabolism is the transfer of food and oxygen into heat & water in the body and consequently it creates energy. So, the metabolism signifies the role and process of different reactions in the body.

Nutrition plays a significant role in your healthy food and healthy life, even before your birth. Although we may not always be aware of it but it continues to affect us in major ways till we die. So, it is a really amazing topic to check out with patience.

Types of nutrition: Healthy Food and Healthy Life

Autotrophic Nutrition

In this type of nutrition, an organism synthesizes high energy organic molecule(food) from low energy inorganic molecules. Although, the low energy molecules are available in nearby surroundings like carbon from CO2, nitrogen from nitrates etc.. So, autotrophic organisms are dependent on themselves.

For example, green plants.

Symbiotic Nutrition

In this type of nutrition, two organisms live in mutual association and derive nutrition from each other. So, they are interdependent to each other.

For example, E.coli lives in intestine of man & synthesizes B12 and in return E.coli gets energy from intestine of man.

Heterotrophic Nutrition

In this type of nutrition, an organism obtains food by feeding on other organisms. But this type of nutrition is further categorized as follows –

  • Holozoic Nutrition: An organism engulf complete food into the body, digests it and then absorbs nutrients through digested food. For example, human beings (herbivores, carnivores and omnivores).
  • Saprotrophic Nutrition: In this type, an organism digests food outside the body through digestive enzymes and then absorbs nutrients. For example, some bacteria, spider, housefly etc.
  • Parasitic Nutrition: In this category, an organism derives food from other living organism by living on or inside the body of organism (called as host). But host may or may not be affected by this relationship. For example, some bacteria, tapeworm, roundworm etc.

In addition, Nutrition is the science that includes processes, by which an animal or plant takes in and utilizes food substances.

Nutrition involves following processes

  1. Firstly, Ingestion of food.
  2. Secondly, Digestion of large particles of food into small particles within GI tract.
  3. Thirdly, Absorption of nutrients in small intestine.
  4. Fourthly, Transportation of nutrients through blood stream.
  5. Fifthly, Utilization of nutrients within cells and
  6. Sixth, Excretion of waste product.

Factors affecting the nutrition of an organism

  1. Social compulsions of food and eating habits.
  2. Cultural implications of food and eating habits.
  3. Economical problems of food and eating habits and
  4. Psychological issues of food and eating habits.

Feeling good about yourself and taking care of your health are important for your self-esteem and self-image. So, always try to maintain healthy lifestyle by doing things positively.

Good nutrition is an important part of a healthy food and healthy lifestyle. Therefore, along with physical activity, positive attitude and adequate rest, good food/nutrition helps you to reach an optimal health. This complete balance helps in maintaining a healthy weight, reduced risk of chronic diseases and promotes overall good health.

Healthy food is the key of healthy nutrition. Therefore, you need to take good nutrition through healthy food for keeping yourself healthy. Essential nutrients like protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamin, mineral and water, are utmost requirement of an organism to live healthy life. Because these nutrients gives energy and protection for growth, maintenance and repairing of body cells.

In current situation, healthy food means to have organic and pure food that contains all essential nutrients in its pure, potent and safe form. Because of so much adulteration and environmental bad conditions around you, your life has been hassled. So, you need to fulfill your daily requirement of all nutrients for getting healthy life. Healthy food helps in maintaining full tank of your body nutrition so that life could be easy and enjoyable.

Insufficient amount of essential nutrients in the body leads to degenerative disorders due to lack of proper nourishment.
