Nutrition overall view
By David M. on 15. February 2018 for Nutrition

The slides and the lector overview we super nice form them only I was able to grasp the content of nutrition. I also liked the metabolic importance of the vitamins and the metabolic processing of alcohol. I really wanna recommend this to my lector of nutrition and those few peers who don't know about lecturio.

 
"nutrition"
By Caleb V. on 07. January 2018 for Nutrition

Incomplete information. I'm fascinated with the fact-based approach to the biochemistry of the human body. I like learning about the role that nutrition plays in disease prevention and the overall affects on human health. However, this course appears to still support the outdated views on proper nutrition and nutrition-related disease prevention. I feel that physicians do not get sufficient quality education on nutrition and that corporate interests still play too much of a role in both nutrition studies and nutritional recommendations. Today's healthcare system is more of a "disease care" system, and this profit-centered business approach, specifically with Pharmaceuticals, is doing little good, and in fact, doing a disservice to the overall welfare of the American people.

By Vit K. on 12. October 2017 for Vitamin B3, B5, B6 and B7

Very interesting. Maybe ratio of aminoacid tryptophan metabolized to niacin and niacin consumed with food is good to mention. B6 can be pyridoxine or pyridoxal?
