Each protein is made of amino acids linked like beads in a necklace

We use about twenty different kinds of amino acids, and arrange them into thousands of proteins like the twenty-six letters in the alphabet can be made into thousands of words.

Each protein is organ specific which means the protein your skin needs is different from what your lungs or heart needs. It’s like you have a protein production plant that uses twenty amino acids as raw ingredients.

Functions in the body

Proteins are used for growth and repair of body tissues.

Proteins form the structure of the soft tissues (such as skin and muscles) and hard tissues (such as bones and teeth) that make up most parts of the body. All these tissues are constantly being produced.

Proteins control fluid, electrolyte and acid-base balance in the body.

Proteins also provide some energy.Severe deficiencies are rare in developed countries and when occasionally seen, would be related to child abuse or extreme cases of anorexia nervosa.

Lower than recommended intakes of protein in young children slow the growth rate of all parts of the body, including the brain.

Animal protein contains all the essential amino acids you need to make protein. That’s the main reason people eat animals. We also get protein from plants.

Several dietary sources of proteins include nuts, beans, milk, egg whites, and meat.

More common in industrialised countries. When more protein is eaten then required, the amino acids that make up the protein molecule are deaminated; meaning the nitrogen-containing amine group is separated.

Deamination produces ammonia, which the cells release into the blood stream. The liver then takes this up.

Liver cells convert the ammonia to urea and release this into the blood to be filtered out by the kidneys and excreted in the urine. The carbon section that remains can be converted to energy if required, or stored as fat.

Carbohydrates are eaten and digested

They are then converted to glucose, which is the main human fuel.

Carbohydrates come in three types:

Simple (Monosaccharides)

Double (Disaccharides)

Complex (Poly saccharides)

Various examples of carbohydrates:






The name carbohydrate means “hydrated carbon”, or carbon with water. Thus, it isn’t a surprise that carbohydrates are made up of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.

Nutrition can be defined as the science of the action of food, beverages, and their components in biological systems

A nutrient is a compound that provides a needed function in the body.

Nutrients can be further classified  into groups based on the amount  needed in the body.

The major nutrient groups are Macronutrients and Micronutrients.


Macronutrients are various types of nutrients needed in larger amounts for the body. The types of nutrients that are found in this group include carbohydrates, proteins, lipids and water.

Micronutrients are types of nutrients needed in smaller amounts for the body. These nutrients are just as important. The types of nutrients that are found in this group include vitamins and minerals.

Psychology is the science of behavior and mind, including conscious and unconscious phenomena, as well as thought. It is an academic discipline of immense scope and diverse interests that, when taken together, seek an understanding of the emergent properties of brains, and all the variety of epiphenomena they manifest. As a social science it aims to understand individuals and groups by establishing general principles and researching specific cases.

In this field, a professional practitioner or researcher is called a psychologist and can be classified as a social, behavioral, or cognitive scientist. Psychologists attempt to understand the role of mental functions in individual and social behavior, while also exploring the physiological and biological processes that underlie cognitive functions and behaviors.

Nutritie terapeutica

Medical nutrition therapy (MNT) is a therapeutic approach to treating medical conditions and their associated symptoms via the use of a specifically tailored diet devised and monitored by a medical doctor physician, registered dietitian, or professional nutritionist. The diet is based upon the patient’s medical record, physical examination, functional examination and dietary history.

The role of MNT when administered by a physician, dietitian or professional nutritionist is to reduce the risk of developing complications in pre-existing conditions such as type 2 diabetes as well as ameliorate the effects any existing conditions such as high cholesterol. Many medical conditions either develop or are made worse by an improper or unhealthy diet.

Terapii Complementare

Naturopathy or naturopathic medicine is a form of alternative medicine that employs an array of pseudoscientific practices branded as “natural”, “non-invasive”, and as promoting “self-healing”. The ideology and methods of naturopathy are based on vitalism and folk medicine, rather than evidence-based medicine. Naturopathic practitioners generally recommend against modern medical practices, including but not limited to medical testing, drugs, vaccinations, and surgery. Instead, naturopathic study and practice rely on unscientific notions, often leading naturopathic doctors to diagnoses and treatments that have no factual merit.

Labyrinth walking

A labyrinth is a patterned path, often circular in form, used as a walking meditation or spiritual practice. A labyrinth’s walkway is arranged in such a way that the participant moves back and forth across the circular form through a series of curves, ending at the labyrinths’s heart or center. It is unicursal, which means that it has only one entrance and leads in only one direction. Although the word maze is often used as a synonym for labyrinth, mazes…

Qualitative, quantitative, and mixed … what does it mean?

At its most fundamental, qualitative research tends to focus on the specific, the individual, the particular; while quantitative research looks for the generalisable, and large amounts of data and/or participants. But, along with these, qualitative and quantitative research are often taken to imply different sorts of orientations towards the nature of knowledge, and even reality. In general, the term ‘mixed-methods’ is used to describe methodologies that combine qualitative and quantitative research in some way. Different researchers take different positions on…

Research Question design

There are a number of ways that survey questions may be problematic. You should not ask questions that your respondents are unlikely to know the answers to, or imply a demand for an unreasonable degree of precision. If you provide a set range of answers for participants, make sure that they are clear about whether you are requesting that they select only one answer from the set, or that they should indicate all that apply. Be careful that the language…

Reflecting on Research Design

It is useful to think of research as involving a number of components, which in combination constitute a research design. However, before we begin these explorations, it may be useful to reflect on the broader research design considerations into which methods would be situated: Research question(s): the specific question(s) that the researcher believes can be answered using particular methods. For example: How do non-asian teenage fans of Japanese anime construct identity online? A conceptual framework: the theoretical perspective that underpins the research.…

Găsește-ți adevărata sursă de motivație cu Self Transformer!

Stimularea, inspirația, conducerea, entuziasmul, impulsul și forța motrice sunt doar câteva din sinonimele pe care le-am găsit când am căutat în dicționar cuvântul “motivare”. Una dintre premisele succesului pe care Narcis Cernea o menționează în Self Transformer si care constă în îndeplinirea oricărei provocări este motivarea. Fără ea, orice provocare, în cele din urmă va deveni prea descurajantă pentru a o putea vedea pană la finalizare. Cu toții trebuie să găsim acest lucru special, ceva care ne duce dincolo de obișnuit.…

De unde ne procuram vitaminele?

Vitaminele sunt substante cu structura complexa (compusi organici) care nu pot fi sintetizate dec atre organism, insa a caror prezenta in corpul uman este absolut obligatorie pentru indeplinirea unor functii esentiale ale acestuia. Fiecare vitamina are anumite roluri specifice in organism. Vitamina A, se gaseste in produsele animale, de obicei in asociere cu lipidele (de exemplu in produsele lactate si in ficat), dar si in margarina. Precursorii vitaminei A (carotenoizii) se gasesc in plantele colorate (fructe si legume galbene si…

Pizza mea vegana preferata

  Noaptea este facuta ca sa mananci Gambino`s Pizza– lucru care trebuie prețuit. In casa noastra se mananca pizza cel puțin o dată pe săptămână. Și dacă se intampla ceva la jumătatea săptămânii (să zicem) este și miezul saptamanii pentru pizza, adica miercuri. Pentru că viața este scurtă și ne iubim pizza și intenționăm să o mâncăm. De multe ori. Nu sunt un mare fan pentru brânză, dar nu exista pizza dacă nu are un strat gros de mozzarella și puțin parmezan pe…

Ce sunt vinurile organice si care sunt beneficiile acestora

Vinul este, in esenta, nimic mai mult decat suc de struguri fermentat. Un produs perfect natural, a fost o parte integranta a civilizatiei din timpurile biblice. In timpul secolului XX, cererea pentru productie a crescut si uniformizarea mai mare a condus multi producatori spre o forma de viticultura industrializata, prin utilizarea substantelor chimice, atat in vie cat si in podgorie. Cu toate acestea, inca de la inceputul anilor 1970, a existat o miscare de indepartare a acestui punct de vedere…
