Nutrition and Metabolism

A section of Nutrients (ISSN 2072-6643).

Section Information

Nutrition and metabolism have a synergistic effect on human health. While nutrition is the process of nutrient acquisition from the environment, metabolism is the coordinated process of transforming nutrients into substrates. The homeostatic interactions between nutrition and metabolism can be altered markedly by varying degrees of undernutrition or overnutrition. As an example, obesity, a condition of overnutrition, has transformed health world-wide with the concomitant rise in metabolic diseases. This section on Nutrition and Metabolism invites contributions in topics spanning from epidemiology, clinical trials, observational and metabolic reports in humans, animals, in vitro and in silico-based studies. Submission of novel findings derived from current work on nutrition and metabolism that can provide insightful perspectives into the homeostatic processes are welcomed.

  • Diet through the life cycle
