Module 7 What? We are also Made from Nutrients?
7.5 Let’s take a look at nutrients one by one
When I was invited to deliver a lecture in a hospital, a doctor had kidney stone and received clinical treatment and was recovered. From then onwards, she had been drinking tap water, and the kidney stone recurred. Therefore she consulted me and took my advice of drinking mineral water. Since then she started drinking mineral water, the kidney stone never recurred.
The quality of water is very significant, because water is the source of life, and water accounts for 55-65% of human body weight.
Water is an indispensable carrier for all the metabolism in the body. Without water, the body’s biochemical reactions cannot proceed, and life will stop.
The main functions of water: transport nutrients, excrete waste, regulate body temperature and maintain the body’s pH.
Protein accounts for about 20% of the human body. Protein is the most important material for human body structure.
The human body’s cells, blood, muscles, tissues and organs all rely on protein composition.
Except for the absence of protein in urine and bile, the human body is mainly composed of protein.
Living organisms cannot survive without protein. Protein is the support frame of life.
Carbohydrate, also known as “sugar”, is the main source of energy for the human body. Carbohydrate mainly comes from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Where do the carbohydrates that we eat every day go? There are three main places to go.
220.127.116.11 It is consumed as energy.
Energy is required for various biochemical reaction in the body, energy is required for exercise, metabolism and thinking.
This is why some people lose weight and do not eat carbohydrates, their legs become soft, and even suffer from hair loss.
If your blood sugar is low, you will feel hungry.
18.104.22.168 A small amount is stored in the liver and muscles
What is stored in the liver is called liver glycogen, and what is stored in the muscles is called muscle glycogen.
When the human body needs explosive energy, such as weightlifting, boxing, etc., muscle glycogen will be converted and used first.
Liver glycogen plays a pivotal role in stabilizing blood sugar, which I will explain in detail in Module 26 on diabetes.
22.214.171.124 Excess carbohydrates become fat and are stored in the body
As the saying goes: Have breakfast like an emperor, have lunch like a minister, and have dinner like a beggar, which may sounds shocking to you but really makes sense, because during the day we consume a lot of energy for work, exercise, and brain use, while at night we consume a lot less energy when we rest and sleep.
If a person often has bad eating habits, turn it upside down, overeat at dinner and intake too much energy to consume at night, the extra energy will turn into fat. Where is the fat stored? The body is very smart. After running around, it finds that the abdomen has a large space under the skin, so it is stored under the skin of the abdomen. This is the reason for the formation of the “Beer Belly”.
As another saying goes: Long belt leads to short life-span. If you wear longer belt due to the “beer belly”, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to offend you, I just try to explain the objective facts and health knowledge as clearly as possible, I hope you can understand. Because people with “beer belly” generally have higher blood lipids, high blood lipids may cause cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Therefore, people with “beer belly” should attach great importance to their own health, pay attention to eating habits, strengthen exercise, control weight, and actively maintain their health.
Fat accounts for 15-25% of the human body, and fat can provide durable energy.
The main component of fat is triglycerides.
