The human body is a complex system that requires multiple nutrients to function properly. Most of the micronutrient components are not energy-yielding substances and include vitamins, minerals, and water. This chapter focuses on studying the importance of these micronutrients as key components in a balanced and healthy diet. They are indispensable in good health and the human body uses them to perform its functions.
