This journal is highly useful to nutritionists, dietitians, medical students and a resource for clinical practice, as it is clearly describes the essential scientific information on medical nutrition, nutritional assessment as well as metabolic study related to diseases. This journal also covers the entire study on micro and macro nutrients as well as applied research on nutrition and dietetics education.
Open access journal is a platform in which all articles are published online with rapid review process and everyone in the world can access its articles free of charge.
The main aim of this journal is to approach the practical application of medical nutrition and foods knowledge to variety of clinical situations. The journal publishes original articles, commentaries, editorials, review articles and case report describing current and upcoming developments in the fields of nutrition & dietetics.

Arginine and omega-3 fatty acids, glutamine, nucleotides, beta-carotene and branched-chain amino acids are referred to as immune-enhancing nutrients. The term "immunonutrition" has been based on the concept that malnutrition impairs immune function. Immune function is depressed in critically ill patients in response to stress, trauma & sepsis. Patients with compromised immune function require specific nutrients in the form of immuno nutrition for rapid recover.
Functional foods are foods that have a potentially positive effect on health beyond basic nutrition. They promote optimal health and help reduce the risk of disease. A familiar example of a functional food is oatmeal because it contains soluble fiber that can help lower cholesterol levels.
Dietetics is the science of applying insight in food and nutrition to improve and maintain good health. It is the study which deals with the regulation of diet, health and hygeine. A registered dietetian can work in variety of places and have diversity in work functions.

Endocrine system comprises of hormone-releasing glands that are spread throughout the body such as hypothalamus, thyroid, pituitary, thymus, adrenal gland, pancreas, ovaries and testicles. These help in regulation of the reproduction, metabolism, sleep, blood pressure and heart rate. Proper nutrition plays a key role in regulating hormone. Nutritional deficiency may lead to impairment of endocrine gland function. On such example is physiological effect of insulin and growth hormone.

Parenteral nutrition, also referred as intravenous feeding, is a method of getting nutrition into the body through the veins. While it is most commonly referred to as total parenteral nutrition (TPN), some patients need to get only certain types of nutrients intravenously.

Enteral nutrition generally refers to any method of feeding that uses the gastrointestinal (GI) tract to deliver part or all of a person′s caloric requirements. It can include a normal oral diet, the use of liquid supplements or delivery of part or all of the daily requirements by use of a tube (tube feeding).

Nutrigenomics often interchanged with nutritional genomics is a multidisciplinary science deals with the study of how food affects our genes and how an individual’s genetic difference play role in responding to the nutrients and other compounds in the food we take. It is use of genomics to examine the interaction of diet and genes involved in health or disease. Recently nutrigenomics has gained a lot of attention in treating or preventing chronic diseases. It helps with personalized medicine and health. Certain factors are taken into consideration such as action of dietary chemicals directly or indirectly on the human genome.

Nutritional epidemiology is one of the disciplines of epidemiology describing the relationship between diet and health in human population. It deals with the examination of role of nutrition in etiology of the disease and monitors the nutritional status of a certain population. It also helps in evaluating healthy eating patterns among the population. It uses biostatistical analysis to understand the biological aspects of nutrition. The epidemiological studies helps in understanding of how to analyze and interpret the dietary data.

Nutraceuticals is broad term described as any non- toxic food component which in addition to normal nutritional values provides health benefits such as prevention of diseases and promotion of health. Nutraceuticals is grouped under following categories: dietary supplements, functional food, medicinal food, farmaceuticals.
The essential factor is that the component of the food must be standardized in the nutraceutical product and produced under good manufacturing practices (GMPs). Some key examples of nutraceuticals are allium compounds, anti-oxidants, digestive stimulants, flavanoids.

Human nutrition refers to the provision of essential nutrients necessary to support human life and health. Generally, people can survive up to 40 days without food, a period largely depending on the amount of water consumed, stored body fat, muscle mass and genetic factors.

A therapeutic diet is a meal plan that controls the intake of certain foods or nutrients. It is part of the treatment of a medical condition and are normally prescribed by a physician and planned by a dietician. A therapeutic diet is usually a modification of a regular diet.

The Nutrition Care Process is a systematic approach to providing high-quality nutrition care. It is management of substances, methods, and setting involved in ensuring the proper intake and absorption of nutriments, especially for the hospitalized patient. The Nutrition Care Process consists of distinct, interrelated steps:
• Nutrition Assessment: The RDN (Registered dietitian nutritionist) collects and documents information such as food or nutrition-related history; biochemical data, medical tests and procedures; anthropometric measurements, nutrition-focused physical findings and client history.
• Diagnosis: Data collected during the nutrition assessment guides the RDN in selection of the appropriate nutrition diagnosis (i.e., naming the specific problem).
• Intervention: The RDN then selects the nutrition intervention that will be directed to the root cause (or etiology) of the nutrition problem and aimed at alleviating the signs and symptoms of the diagnosis.
• Monitoring/Evaluation: The final step of the process is monitoring and evaluation, which the RDN uses to determine if the patient/client has achieved, or is making progress toward, the planned goals.

Diet therapy is a broad term for the practical application of nutrition as a preventative or corrective treatment of disease. This usually involves the modification of an existing dietary lifestyle to promote optimum health. However, in some cases, an alternative dietary lifestyle plan may be developed for the purpose of eliminating certain foods in order to reclaim health.

Enzymes are biological molecules (proteins) that act as catalysts and help complex reactions occur everywhere in life. Enzymes bind temporarily to one or more of the reactants — the substrate(s) — of the reaction they catalyze. In doing so, they lower the amount of activation energy needed and thus speed up the reaction.

Digested molecules of food, as well as water and minerals from the diet, are absorbed from the cavity of the upper small intestine. The absorbed materials cross the mucosa into the blood, mainly, and are carried off in the bloodstream to other parts of the body for storage or further chemical change. This absorption process may varies depends on the nutrients.

Food microbiology is the study of the microorganisms that inhabit, create, or contaminate food, including the study of microorganisms causing food spoilage. "Good" bacteria, however, such as probiotics, are becoming increasingly important in food science.
