Micronutrient supply – the components of life and the key for healthiness
Nutrients get split into smaller molecules through digestive processes after being administered through the daily feed ration. Over the intestinal mucosa those smaller molecules reach the blood from where they are delivered to their target organs and finally getting metabolized by every somatic cell.
The macronutrients proteins, carbohydrates (sugar) and lipids serve the generation of energy and are the basic material the animal body consists of. For utilizing macronutrients, the organism needs energy and micronutrients: vitamins, mineral substances as well as trace and volume elements. Although only small amounts are needed those components of live are essential cofactors and important catalysts for enzymatically reactions (enzyme cascades).
Without micronutrients, those biochemical reactions – also known as metabolic reactions – in our body do not work. An optimal supply for the body with micro- and macronutrients is therefore not only the provision with basic supplies but rather the key to healthiness!
A balanced and to the situation adjusted supply with micronutrients is a substantial component of the nutritional medicine. On the basis of scientific discoveries feed concepts are created in the nutritional medicine for certain diseases and deficiencies.
