Nutrition is the combination of catabolism and anabolism of food in the body. Nutritional Science investigates the Metabolic and Physiological responses of the body to diet. The study of Human Nutrition is increasingly concerned with Metabolism and Metabolic pathways, the sequence of biochemical steps through which substances in living things change from one form to another.
It has been acknowledged that unhealthy eating and physical inactivity are leading causes of death. According to recent surveys, unhealthy eating and inactivity cause 310,000-580,000 deaths every year. Unhealthy eating and nutritional deficiencies are the major causes of the deaths. On the other hand, sales of vitamins and dietary supplements showed a positive growth trend, and sales contribution of herbal supplements and sports nutrition was the largest. Rising income levels, aging baby boomers, changing lifestyles, an increased focus on health, and high incidences of diseases are some of the factors that are driving the demand for nutrients & supplements in the market. Despite the recession, the industry has shown growth, particularly in the case of herbal, sports and weight loss product categories.
