In our society there is a growing concern to deepen in all aspects related to Nutrition and Health. There is increasing evidence of the close connection between prevention and even treatment of various pathologies and different dietary patterns and strategies. Sport has not been unaware of this concern and we have long known that the athlete's diet is part of his performance and success. In this regard we consider that the so-called "Biological Training" of which nutrition, hydration, habits of life, etc. are part. Is, at the moment, something essential in the life of any athlete and of course anyone.... [-]

A good diet helps greatly to bring optimal health to the individual. This premise must take it into consideration. Therefore we must educate and raise awareness around us of vital importance.

The field of food and nutrition for many years has been in second place in our society. You will not be conferred the importance it really has. We currently have a health system based on healing, prevention must be our one and let it cure in a second term. In economic terms at adequate prevention programs would help reduce current health spending, targeted mostly toward palliative or curative treatments. ... [-]

The advance of sciences related to nutrition, such as biochemistry, molecular biology, pathophysiology, toxicology, and dietetics make nutrition one of the most applied, modern and fascinating sciences; therefore, it requires an analysis not only from a scientific perspective but also from a human one. In this context, vegetarian nutrition is being proposed as an alternative model of nutrition based on ethics, health and ecology principles.

The number of vegetarians in western countries is constantly growing; however, given this growing demand, professionals still do not have the available tools to respond to the requests of the vegetarians and those who wish to become vegetarians. Currently, the professional needs continuous training that allows him/her to receive a high level of specialization, as demanded by the users, clients or patients with whom he/she interacts as well as the public or private institutions where the professional works....

Have you ever wondered where the word gut feeling comes from, or why stress induces abdominal discomfort? If so, this Master's programme may be of interest to you.

Nutritional Molecular Medicine and Bioinformatics is a two-year international Master's programme using problem-based learning (PBL) and designed to offer students scientific knowledge and competence to understand the complex bidirectional signalling between the gut and the brain. It focuses on in-depth knowledge on how diet and nutrition, the intestinal microbes, the intestine and the brain interact, as well as: i) how this is related to aberrant function of the gut and the brain, ii) how this relates to clinical practice, and iii) how this can be elucidated by state-of-the-art clinical and experimental research. The programme also provides you with an understanding of: i) how cellular processes relate to organ functions, ii) how the (patho)physiology of gut-brain interactions relates to nutritional, microbiological, gastroenterological and neurobiological aspects (with a human and clinical perspective), and iii) how bioinformatics can be an important tool to reach that understanding. This knowledge is essential for the development of new strategies to diagnose, prevent and treat the often debilitating disorders related to gut and brain function.... [-]

Areas covered in the first semester of the programme include how different types of studies contribute to the knowledge which forms the basis for diet and physical activity recommendations, while also considering sustainability aspects. In-depth knowledge of molecular and genetic mechanisms underlying the impact of diet on the organism is also included. Assessment methodology for dietary intake, physical activity and fitness, focusing on understanding the validity, applicability and evaluation of the results is also dealt with. Methods for preventing disease and promoting healthy dietary habits and physical activity, e.g. by using internet and mobile phone technology, are also covered in the first part of the programme. Global perspectives and comparisons are included in all courses. The second semester consists of a degree project comprised of 30 credits. Here the student has the opportunity to choose a project...
