About this book

Introduction

This book provides an overview of microgravity-induced changes in human metabolism, muscle, bone and the cardio-vascular system, and discusses in detail the nutrient uptake required during spaceflight to counteract these adaptive mechanisms and ensure an improved physical constitution upon returning to Earth. It addresses the needs of professors, researchers and students working in the field of human physiology and nutrition.

Keywords

cardiovascular system macronutrients microgravity effect on physiology muscle and bone metabolism nutrient supply during space flight vitamins
