Fibra:Fiber is a complex carbohydrate of plant origin. Humans
cannot digest fiber or use it as a source of energy or
matter, but it is nonetheless essential for the functioning
of the digestive system.

Nutrients:Organic nutrients: are complex molecules produced by

Inorganic nutrients: are simple molecules that can be
found in living organisms, but have not been produced by
them. These nutrients are essential to your body but do
not supply any energy.
○ Minerals (such as calcium and sodium)
○ Water
○ Oxygen

Vitamins:Vitamins are organic components that the body either
cannot produce or produces only in insufficient
● These must be obtained from food.
● All vitamins are needed in small quantities and they are
essential for regulating many cellular processes in the

Vitamins are classified into
two groups:
○ Fat-soluble vitamins, which
are stored in the fatty
tissues of your body.
○ Water-soluble vitamins,
which cannot be stored in
the body and must be taken

Unsaturated fats:Unsaturated fats, which are usually liquid at room
temperature. They are considered to be healthy.


nutrition:Obtain nutrients
● Transport these nutrients to the cells and remove
the metabolic
● wastes from the cells.
● Carry the wastes out of the body.

Digestive system
○ The digestive system extracts nutrients from
foods, breaking down foods into molecular components
that can be absorbed by cells

● Respiratory system
○ The respiratory system obtains oxygen from the air and
adds it to the blood; it also releases carbon dioxide,
a waste product of cellular respiration.

○ The circulatory system transports nutrients to all
cells in the body and removes metabolic waste from the
● Urinary
○ The urinary system filters waste and extra salt from
the blood. These are eliminated in the urine. This
system also regulates the body’s water balance.
