Health Talks: Proteins for our Body

Without protein your body cannot function properly.Our nerves of the body, tissues, bones are all composed of proteins. Thus proteins become very necessary to grow and repair.

Proteins are large molecules composed of amino acids that our body and cells in our body needs to function properly.

Our body structures, functions, regulation of body cells, tissues and organs cannot exist without proteins. Our muscles, skin, bones and many other parts of the body contain significant amounts of protein. The protein is responsible for 20% of total body weight.

The enzymes, hormones and antibodies are proteins.

The proteins also function as neurotransmitters and companies of oxygen in the blood (hemoglobin). Imagine proteins as machines, machines that do all living things, from viruses, bacteria, butterflies, jellyfish, plants and humans function. Each cell has thousands of different proteins, which together form the cell to do its job - the machines are small proteins inside the cell. Amino acids and proteins - protein is fabricated up of amino acids; amino acids are the architecture blocks of protein, there are 20 of them. Imagine there are 20 altered types of bricks, and an abundant beyond cardinal of altered types of houses which we could name according to the way we accumulated the artery (their sequence). The bricks are amino acids and the houses are proteins.
