Description

Features a comprehensive summary of the chemical, physiological, and nutritional relationships of all recognized vitamins!

Maintaining the standards of excellence set forth in the previous editions, the Handbook of Vitamins, Third Edition presents a thorough examination of the fundamental characteristics, functions, and roles of vitamins in human health.

Extensively updated and expanded to reflect the latest advances in analytical and separation methodologies!

Offering a compendium of authoritative, current knowledge on the nature and function of each known nutrient, the Third Edition discusses….

  • improvements in the methodology, isolation, identification, and the synthesis of vitamins

  • the chemistry, metabolism, and biochemical functions of vitamins

  • vitamin interactions with environmental factors, drugs, alcohol, and smoking

  • vitamins in disease prevention and health promotion

  • the efficacy and hazards of high vitamin dosages

  • and more!

    New sections cover…

  • the roles vitamins play as catalysts, cellular regulators, and co-substrates

  • biochemical markers for vitamin deficiency and groups at risk

  • the relationship of B12 and folate metabolism to homocysteine regulation, and the possible connections of homocysteine to vascular diseases and developmental defects

  • new roles for vitamins A, K, and D, and the role of vitamin E and flavonoids in oxidant defense

    Containing over 2800 literature references and 150 illustrations and tables, the Handbook of Vitamins, Third Edition serves as an indisputably valuable reference for human and animal nutritionists, dietitians, food scientists and technologists, biochemists, organic and analytical chemists, pharmacologists, toxicologists, physiologists, physicians in general practice, and makes an indispensable text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
