Nutrients are the most essential factors in the human body responsible for growth. Carbohydrates, fats, proteins, minerals and vitamins are examples of nutrients, water and fiber are also some of them. All these nutrients have to be present in the meal in specific percentages. The imbalance of these percentages leads to the lack of some nutrients and overconsumption of others. This leads to certain negative health conditions.
