What you'll learn

Micronutrients or vitamins and minerals are essential for healthy development, disease prevention, and wellbeing. These are not produced in the body and must be derived from the diet. They are required in small amounts. They are iron, vitamin A, vitamin D, iodine, folate, and zinc. They have their own specific role in the human body. Deficiencies happen when the body does not get or cannot absorb the necessary amount of nutrients from diet or other sources. read more »»
