In brief: Nutrients

Nutrients is a broad spectrum definition of body's building blocks.
Of those, the most important are proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Others, not less importants, are vitamins and minerals. Without those, your body systems will not function properly, leading to the state of disease and potentially death.
