This book discusses in detail the effects of vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, and beta-carotene and other caroteniods on human physiology and health. The expert panel also explores the evidence relating these substances-loosely termed dietary antioxidants-to the reduction of risk of chronic disease, including a research agenda for using biomarkers to confirm the relationship between antioxidant intake and disease.
The book explains how DRIs-which include Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA), Adequate Intake, and other measures-are derived for men and women throughout their life stages. This volume reflects several important new insights: a revised approach to estimating vitamin E requirements and a complete review of the literature to allow a determination of RDAs and upper levels (or maximum intakes) for vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, and beta-carotene and other carotenoids. This book will be important to professionals in nutrition research and education.
Extends the scope and application of previous quantitative nutrient guidelines. Presents what is known about how the nutrient functions in the human body, what the best method is to determine its requirement, and which factors may affect how it works. Hardcover, softcover not yet available. For nutritionists. DNLM: Nutritional Requirements.
