Micronutrient therapy is based on substances that are normally present in the human body, and these include approximately 45 essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids, and essential fatty acids. A practical color system guides you through the various parts of this manual: Healthy nutrition, where the elements of balanced nutrition are presented; Nutritional supplements, which discusses micronutrients, their functions in the body and their therapeutic value; Nutrition and aging about the changing demands of the body in various stages of life; Prevention and therapy with micronutrients, which provides specific recommendations for micronutrient therapy in the presence of diseases; and an Appendix, with additional information regarding the interaction between medications and micronutrients. Laboratory methods for determining levels of micronutrients are described.
