Are you familiar with amino acids? It is very commonly used in daily life. For example, when making some western medicinal supplement, amino acids may be used. Amino acids are organic compounds. They may also contain its ingredients in some health care products and some nutritional products. Common, but is there a limited understanding of the efficacy and role of amino acids? What are the functions of amino acids? How amino acids play the roles? Let's take this opportunity to learn about amino acids.
As the first nutrient element in the body, protein has an obvious role in food nutrition, but it cannot be used directly in the human body, but through It is used after it becomes a small amino acid molecule.
When the quality and amount of protein in the daily diet are appropriate, the amount of nitrogen ingested is equal to the amount of nitrogen excreted from the feces, urine and skin, which is called the total balance of nitrogen. In fact, it is the balance between continuous synthesis and decomposition of protein and amino acids. Normal people's daily intake of protein should be kept within a certain range. When the intake is suddenly increased or decreased, the body can still regulate the metabolism of protein to maintain nitrogen balance. Ingestion of excessive protein, beyond the body's ability to regulate, the balance mechanism will be destroyed. If you don't eat protein at all, the tissue protein in your body will still be decomposed, and negative nitrogen balance will continue to occur. If you don't take corrective measures in time, it will eventually lead to the death of antibodies.
A-keto acid produced by the catabolism of amino acids is metabolized along the metabolic pathway of sugar or fat with different characteristics. a-keto acid can be re-synthesized into new amino acids, or converted into sugar or fat, or enter the tri-carboxyl cycle to oxidize and decompose into CO2 and H2O, and release energy.
The chemical nature of enzymes is protein (amino acid molecular composition), such as amylase, pepsin, cholinesterase, carbonic anhydrase, transaminase, etc. The components of nitrogen-containing hormones are proteins or their derivatives, such as growth hormone, thyroid stimulating hormone, adrenaline, insulin, enterotropin and so on. Some vitamins are converted from amino acids or combined with proteins. Enzymes, hormones, and vitamins play a very important role in regulating physiological functions and catalyzing metabolism.
Fifth, The requirement of human essential amino acid: The requirement of adult essential amino acid is about 20% to 37% of the requirement of protein.
