There are two water soluble vitamins that can be synthesized by some animals but not by others, including humans: They are Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) and Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin). Therefore these vitamins would not be essential nutrients for all species as they are for humans.
For your main post, choose one of the these to begin your thread. Don’t use up a lot of space re-stating all the functions we learned in class, but expand upon them instead. Do you feel you might be at risk for deficiency for the vitamin you choose to start with? What are the consequences of deficiency? Include food sources and how certain dietary choices affect the vitamin’s status in the body. Is it better to obtain the vitamins from food or supplements? Are there toxicity issues with the vitamin of your choice?
Feel free to include your own personal experiences, if applicable. Include at least one credible reference (Text book is OK if you also include an additional reference). Then, reply to at least two of your classmates. One of your replies must be on the vitamin that you did not choose. Feel free to post additional replies to your classmates and to me (replies to me do not count towards your grade). Your own words please!
Hello, this is Jessie Hardcastle over at the Refugee Resettlement Organization. We are dealing with a large number of women with infants who have recently been resettled in our town. However, the doctors tell us that they have some malnutrition problems and need information about how to eat healthily. The doctor has given them vitamins but they need basic nutrition for new mothers and infants up to 2 years old. Could you put together an educational program for them and choose 2 meal examples ( one breakfast and one lunch) for the mothers?
Answer each discussion question. Reference in APA style all information from any and all sources, including the lectures, textbook, websites, etc.

I need a nutrition presentation on weight loss that will show how hormones and the gut microbiome are often neglected but extremely important factors in successfully achieving and maintaining weight loss. I’ll need references and for certain hormones to be talked about in terms of their influence on weight loss. The hormones should include: cortisol, testosterone, estrogen, Kisspeptin-10, leptin, and ghrelin. The gut microbiome portion should also briefly cover the metabolites in the attached cheatsheet. This will give you the information needed to briefly cover each metabolite. This presentation is a sales pitch so it chould be informative but brief so the customer will want to learn more.
