SCC: Nutri 300 (Kirkpatrick)

This book is organized by nutrient rather than using a functional approach, which means that the material is organized around nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, etc... rather than physiological functions, such as fluid and electrolyte balance, antioxidant function, bone health, energy and metabolism, and blood health.  Keep in mind that the nutrients must all work together in order for our body to function optimally.
