NUTRITION

INTRODUCTION

According to the WHO, nutrition is the consumption of food according to the body’s nutritional needs. Good nutrition, understood as an adequate and balanced diet combined with regular physical exercise, is a key element in maintaining a healthy life.

Nutrition is the process by which our body uses food to maintain a good working condition and repair damaged areas. This involves a variety of processes, including food uptake, uptake, and transformation, that allow the body to incorporate nutrients for its maintenance, growth, and proper functioning.

The term food is often used as a synonym for nutrition, but there are differences that need to be taken into account, in particular the fact that diet is an involuntary action and that eating food depends on voluntary and conscious action.

For this reason, we can follow a diet, including healthy foods in the right proportions, to enjoy a proper diet.

Nutrition is one of the pillars of health. Proper nutrition at all ages strengthens the immune system, reduces disease and generally good health.

WHAT IS NUTRITION?

Nutrition is a biological process in which animal and plant organisms absorb vital nutrients from food.

Nutrition is important because it is necessary for the functioning and maintenance of the vital functions of living beings, it helps to maintain the homeostatic balance of the body in both macrosystemic processes such as digestion or metabolism.

It also allows molecular processes (amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, minerals) to be performed, which are physiological and biochemical processes in which energy (calories) is consumed and depleted.

Similarly, human nutrition is a science that studies the relationship between human food consumption and health (diseases) in order to maintain well-being and human health.

Proper nutrition protects against many chronic diseases and is associated with a healthy lifestyle.

Many health problems can be avoided by eating a healthy diet or by following the right proportions of each food.

The six types of nutrients that the body needs on a daily basis are water, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, proteins and fats.

are responsible for planning meals, creating menus, and managing people’s food and nutrition programs.

TYPES OF NUTRITION

AUTOTROPHIC DIET

This is known as the autotrophic diet, which is used by autotrophic organisms, i.e. organisms that produce their own food, from inorganic substances such as carbon dioxide, to synthesize the basic substances needed for metabolism.

There are different types of autotrophic creatures, such as so-called chemolithotrophs, which are bacteria that use the oxidation of inorganic compounds such as sulfur dioxide or iron compounds to produce energy. There are also photolithoautotrophs, which are organisms that use photosynthesis, such as plants.

HETEROTROPHIC DIET

Heterotrophic nutrition is defined as heterotrophic organisms that are creatures that need others to live, i.e. they feed on organic matter synthesized by other organisms.

Examples of heterotrophic nutrition are seen in fungi, animals, and many bacteria and protozoa or protozoa that produce complex organic molecules using the energy of eaten autotrophic creatures.

There are various types of heterotrophic creatures that can be divided into four classes according to their diet: holotrophs (food chain, carnivores, herbivores or phytophagous and omnivorous), saprophages (they feed on
