The Science of Nutrition, Third Editionis uniquely organized using an applied approach, which organizes vitamins and minerals based on their functions and effects on the body. This applied approach is most evident in the functional organization of the micronutrient (vitamin and mineral) chapters. Rather than requiring you to memorize all the vitamins and minerals and their characteristics, the authors present them based on their functions (like fluid and electrolyte balance, antioxidant function, bone health, energy metabolism, and blood and immunity health), so that you can understand their effects on the body. The Third Editionof the book adds New Focus Figure spreads also appearing as tutorials within MasteringNutrition™that concentrate on the toughest topics to learn and understand. Expanded in-text and Mastering Math activities pump up the content. Key content innovations also enhance instructor teaching and student learning outcomes through smarter, more focused, and streamlined content organization.
