Acquired metabolic disorders are linked to nutrient transition, which is the switch from traditional to modern diets that are high in calorie density and low in nutrient diversity. The human diet is made up of a variety of different ingredients, including both nutrients and non-nutrients, which provide the raw materials needed to power various metabolic processes in every cell of the body. Numerous pathways can be used by these substances and their metabolites to control gene expression and cellular function. While some of these ingredients have positive benefits, others might be hazardous. According to studies, chronic disruption of nutrient metabolism and/or energy balance brought on by either nutrient excess or shortage causes cellular stress that eventually results in metabolic dysregulation, tissue damage, and the emergence of acquired metabolic syndromes [1].

It is now clear that host/microbiota interaction, extrinsic factors like food, xenobiotics, and the environment, and intrinsic factors like sex, age, and gene variants all affect metabolism and alter the risk of acquiring various acquired metabolic illnesses. It is increasingly becoming clear that eating diets strong in variety of nutrients but low in energy density may be the best way to maintain and promote good health. The relevance of nutrition and metabolism for human health is demonstrated by changes in contemporary lifestyle and illness epidemiology. Governments, funding organisations, and scientific organisations have accelerated nutritional and metabolic research as a result of awareness of its importance. Preclinical studies, which created the foundations for our current understanding of nutritional and metabolic care, have played a significant role in defining molecular interactions, genetic mechanisms, and metabolic pathways in the domains of nutrition and metabolism. However, it is still difficult to translate preclinical results to humans.Food is made up of a complicated mixture of various ingredients that can be divided into nutrients and non-nutrients. Traditional classifications of nutrients include macronutrients and micronutrients. Animals and plants do not have the same nutritional needs, and they may also create different nutrient metabolites. Only trace levels of micronutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, are necessary for the healthy operation of critical proteins and enzymes. Usually, a lot of the macronutrients—carbohydrates, proteins, and fats—are required. Since macronutrients' constituent parts are used by all living things as both energy substrates and as the building blocks of cellular structures, their advantages are obvious [2].

Some species require get essential metabolites from other species since they are unable to generate them on their own. Together with minerals, these important metabolites make up a group of compounds known as essential nutrients. Food ingredients that fall outside of the macro- or micronutrient categories are considered non-nutrients. The specialised periodicals and publications in this area, which have seen a dramatic development in the previous 20 years, show that the scientific community is paying increasing attention to nutrition in sport. A true parallel world has emerged for nutritional supplements in addition to nutrition as food. Currently, the role of the sports nutritionist is well-known. We have demonstrated in prior studies that it is not the same for dietary supplements. The most popular places to find information on nutritional supplements are the internet and training partners; in combat sports (CSs), particularly at the amateur level, it is frequently one person who deals with technique, nutrition, and dietary supplements [3].

Because of this, even though the specific one, namely supplements in combat sports, is not very comprehensive, we would like to suggest some hints based on scientific literature. Recently, we looked at a popular empiric practise from a scientific perspective. demonstrate how the strategy is efficient and secure. In addition to supplements, research has looked at a common combat sport practise called "making weight," which involves losing a lot of weight quickly before a bout, then gaining it back even faster. This practise is frequently employed without a sound scientific basis. Traditionally, nutrients have been thought of as food that provides the building blocks for cellular development and proliferation as well as the energy to drive cellular metabolism. However, it is also clear that in addition to these functions, nutrients and their metabolites play a significant role in the facilitation, control, and coordination of the enormous number of cellular activities necessary to preserve cellular homeostasis. Contextual factors including sex, age, and appropriate nutrition supply all affect how well cells work. The prevalence of processed foods in Western-style diets may be a significant contributor to the growth of acquired metabolic disorders in developed cultures [4].

The long-term consumption of these foods, which typically have poor nutrient diversity and excessive energy content, lead to deficiencies in key nutrients and excess fuel substrates that likely trigger the loss of cellular nutrient/energy homeostasis. Due to the continued exposure of cells to stressors, the metabolic changes at the cellular level intended initially as adaptive strategies, persist and ultimately become the driver of metabolic dysfunction at the organismal level. Recent advances in high-throughput analyses, creation of animal models of human metabolic diseases and bioinformatic tools hold promise for accelerating the process of formulating more effective nutritional recommendations. In the meantime, consumption of foods with low-energy density and high nutrient diversity seems to be a prudent approach for minimizing cellular stress and the promotion of optimal cellular function and health [5].
