Nutrients are ( chemicals supplied from environment that an organism requires for survival ) in metabolism and used to build up (anabolism) or to break down (catabolism ) chemical compounds to support life. Some nutrients that we need, like certain amino acids, we cannot synthesize. These are called ( essential nurtrients ) Complete the Graph below about the hormones which interact to affect appetite by affecting the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus.
