Macronutrients provide the majority of the energy required by the body for its functioning. Micronutrients repair the damaged tissues and also handle some of the bodily functions. Our body is a chemical system of many nutrients. Some of them are:

  1. Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are chains of sugar and they provide energy. They can be further classified into monosaccharides, disaccharides and oligosaccharides.
  2. Proteins: Proteins help in speeding up metabolism and DNA stimuli. They have chains of amino acids that are joined by peptide bonds.
  3. Fats: Fats regulate the body temperature and helps for a healthy hair and skin. Apart from this, they act as shock absorbers to the body organs. Fats are glycerine molecules with the attachment of some fatty acids.
  4. Vitamin: Vitamin acts as enzyme cofactors. They help in eyesight and are essential for preventing many diseases like rickets and beriberi.
  5. Water: Water is essential in keeping the body from being dehydrated thus preventing strokes, organ failures. They are the solvents in majority of the chemical reactions.

Some nutrients are produced internally by the body while some require supply from outside. Carbohydrates, proteins and fats are to be supplied through diet and are called essential nutrients.Dietary fibre is produced in the body and is called non-essential nutrient. One of the major causes of deaths worldwide is nutritional deficiency.

  1. Lack Of iron: It leads to a condition called anaemia which results in fatigue and weakness. Also, the red blood cells produced by the body will be weaker and its Oxygen carrying capacity reduces.
  2. Lack of vitamins: Their shortage can lead to numerous problems. Vitamin A deficiency hampers eye-sight and weakens immune system. Vitamin B deficiency causes weakness and can also lead to memory loss and confusion. Vitamin D deficiency causes the bones to become weaker.
  3. Fatty acid deficiency causes diarrhoea and liver damage.
  4. Lack of Carbohydrates leads to weaker body structure, in turn, leading to cramps, poor cognitive power and sleeplessness.
  5. Protein loss leads to growth retardation, depression, lethargy and
