These meds interact w/ many others & foods ...Read more

All nutrients.: Your brain cells need whatever your other cells in your body need, only more often. One nutrient needed most is glucose, which is vital to correct brain function.

Oxygen is also very important, and a lack of oxygen to the brain can cause massive brain cell death or a stroke. ...Read more

Body makes it: Building blocks of proteins, called Amino Acids - some we can make from other substances, some we have to ingest - you can find lists in biochemistry or nutrition sites or books.

No consensus on 90:
By definition "essential nutrients" are essential for health so we need to ingest all of them for optimal health, but while Joel Wallach DVM, ND claims we need 90 essential nutrients most authorities only list 45: http://tinyurl. Com/yb2vrjbq

There is no real information regarding nutrients per day.
I strongly suggest you make an appointment with a dietitian who can help you decide how and when to take food and nibbles. The answer won't come after only one visit with a dietitian but in a short period you will fully understand things and tell your family and friends. ...Read more
Nutrients: I'd say that calcium, vitamin d and Folic Acid (if you're of child bearing years) are probably the most important ones to get. Most of the food here in the U.S. Is fortified with so many of the other vitamins and nutrients that you'd rarely be deficient in much else (unless there's a specific medical condition causing the deficiency). ...Read more

Yes: Farming practices do not recycle the minerals through the use of manure. So even the vegetables are compromised. Vitamin enrichment is not good enough in many common foods.
