Why Nutrition:

The foods we eat contain vitamins, minerals, and amino acids-the building blocks of proteins, besides other nutrients. These elements contribute greatly towards health and longevity by imparting vigor and vitality to the body, fighting disease and thereby, prolonging life. Sir Robert McCarrison, a well-known nutritionist, aptly remarks, ‘The right kind of food is the most important single factor in the promotion of health; and the wrong kind of food is the most important single factor in the promotion of disease.’ The body builds and maintains healthy cells, tissues, glands, and organs with the help of various nutrients that are taken in the diet. The body cannot perform any of its functions, be they metabolic, hormonal, mental, physical, or chemical, without them. Food is also the utmost importance in the cure of disease. The primary cause of disease is a weakened organism or lowered resistance in the body, arising from the adoption of faulty food habits. It is believed that about 45 chemical components and elements are needed by human cells. Each of these 45 substances- carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals, and vitamins-must be present in the diet. Factor which leads to deficiencies of vitamins and minerals is the time lag between the harvesting and consumption of vegetables and fruits. Further loss of these nutrients occurs due to the storage, paring, and grating of vegetables, soaking them in water, and from the heat of cooking. Vitamins for Healthy living When taken in correct amounts and regularly, vitamins are responsible for good health and vitality, energy, growth, and longevity. Each of the essential vitamins has a specific function in the body. Used therapeutically, vitamins can be of immense help in treating disease and speeding recovery. They can be used in two ways: correcting deficiencies and treating diseases. Vitamin therapy has a distinct advantage over drug therapy: while drugs are always toxic and have many undesirable side-effects, vitamins, as a rule, are non-toxic and safe.
Vitamin A
• Those whose intake of vitamin A is only in the form of carotene should take a daily recommended amount as follows: Men: 2,400 mcg; Women: 2,400 mcg; Lactation: 3,800 mcg; Children: 1,600-2,400 mcg; Infants: 1,200 mcg.
• Approximately 80 per cent of vitamin A is absorbed in the human system. The absorption of vitamin A increases if it is taken with fats. Absorption is more rapid in men than in women. Vitamin A is stored in the liver.
• Vitamin C
Vitamin C is excreted by the kidneys through the urine. Excretion is diminished or absent when the body is already depleted of it. When there is an intake of over 3g of vitamin C per day, the unabsorbed ascorbic acid is largely excreted in the faeces, and to a smaller extent, in the urine.
Vitamin D
• Vitamin D was initiated in 1924, when H. Steenbock and A.F. Hess demonstrated independently that antiricketic activity could be induced in foods containing certain fat soluble substances by exposure to ultraviolet light. Excretion of vitamin D and its metabolites occurs primarily in the faeces with the aid of bile salts. Very little vitamin D appears in the urine.
Functions in the Body
• The best-defined function of vitamin A is its role in vision. In addition, vitamin A is required for growth, reproduction, and the maintenance of life. It builds up resistance to respiratory and other infections, and keeps the mucous linings and membranes of the body, especially those of the eyes, lungs, stomach, and intestines, in a healthy condition. It prevents eye diseases, aids in the secretion of gastric juices, and the digestion of protein. It also plays a vital role in preventing and clearing up infections of the skin, and in promoting healthy hair, teeth, and gums. It also helps prevent premature aeging and senility, increases life expectancy, and extends youthfulness. Ascorbic acid enhances the absorption of iron. It is needed for buoyant health, vitality and endurance. It ensures a clear skin, a fresh complexion, and healthy gums and teeth It is very important during infancy and adolescence for the proper formation of teeth and bones. It plays an important role in the prevention of dental caries. Vitamin D protects children against rickets. A good supply of this vitamin during pregnancy benefits the mother and helps to ensure the satisfactory future development of the child
Sources
• Foods rich in vitamin A(retinol) include those of animal origin such as sheep liver, egg yolk, wholemilk, butter, and ghee. Vegetables such as colocasia, turnip greens, drumsticks, beet, carrots, and spinach contain a lot of carotene. Fruits like mangoes, apricots, gooseberries, raspberries, and oranges are also rich in carotene. The main sources of vitamin C are citrus fruits and vegetables. Among fruits, Indian gooseberries, guavas, limes, lemons, oranges and papayas are the most valuable sources of this vitamin. Foodstuffs of animal origin contain only small amounts of this vitamin; the more important of such sources is fish. Vitamin D is produced from a substance present beneath the skin when sunlight falls upon the surface of the body. Its natural distribution is limited to small amounts in fish oils, ghee, eggs and butter. Compared with fish-liver oil, which is best for source of vitamin D, other foods are quiet low in vitamin D.
Deficiency Symptoms
• Prolonged deficiency of vitamin A may result in inflammation of the eyes, poor vision, and nightblindness. Infections, especially of the respiratory tract, in the form of frequent and prolonged common colds. Vitamin A deficiency may lead to lack of appetite and vigour, defective teeth and gums, skin disorders such as pimples, acne, boils, and premature wrinkles. When vitamin A is present in insufficient amounts, the mucous membranes of the nose, throat, and mouth, the bronchial tubes, lungs, intestinal tract, kidneys, and vagina are greatly affected. Other deficiency symptoms include retarded growth in children, dry and dull hair, dandruff, excessive hair loss, ridged nails, and a poor sense of taste and smell. Mild deficiencies of vitamin C may appear in the form of lassitude, fatigue, anorexia, muscular pain, and greater susceptibility to infection. A prolonged deficiency may cause scurvy. The growth and maintenance of the normal bones largely depends on this. Lack of vitamin D may lead to tooth decay, brittle or soft bones, retarded growth, and poor bone formation in children. Lack of vitamin in children can also give rise to improper activity of the parathyroid gland, and result in convulsions.
