Transcript of Protein

Protein Protein Makes Up your Body structure! Protein is an essential component of the diet and helps your body repair muscle, grow tissue, control metabolism, defend against illness, and more. Protein is what makes up your immune system, ligaments, tendons, muscles, hair, nails, skin, teeth, tissue, organs, and bones. About half of the non-water mass of your body is made up of protein. Since most of the body's proteins are continually broken down, the body needs to manufacture thousands of proteins every day to replace them. The more active you are, the faster your proteins break down, and more protein you need to replenish them. Individuals typically need 1 gram of protein daily for each kilogram of their body weight. For example, a 180-pound man would need at least 80 grams of protein a day to meet his body's needs; a 140-pound woman would need a minimum of 60 grams. Protein cannot be stored for later use, like fat or carbohydrates can, so the body needs daily replenishments. Most of the Protein We Eat Is Burned as Calories Although you get much protein through your daily diet, the body cannot, unfortunately, digest and use all of it. A nutritional label may indicate 10 grams of protein in a food, but your body won't assimilate all 10 grams. Most likely you'll assimilate only 10-20% and convert the rest to calories. Why? Because in order for protein synthesis to take place, all 8 of the essential amino acids must be present. All 8 must be at the cell at the same time; otherwise protein cannot be made. Protein cannot be stored, so these essential amino acids must either be in place or the body will burn the protein as energy, or store it as fat. Just cooking a Soccer ball
takes alot of protein to just
do! You can get Protein in many
different types of food like meats
or some vegetables and grains
or even some dairy products. Foods with proteins in them 1. Cheese 2. Mature (Large) Beans 3.Lean Veal and Beef 4.Roasted Pumpkin, Squash,
and Watermelon Seeds Proteins are biochemical compounds consisting of one
or more polypeptide typically folded into a globular or
fibrous form facilitating a biological function. And they are chains made out of amino acid. #5 Lean Meats (Chicken, Lamb, Pork, Turkey) 6. Fish (Tuna, Anchovies, Salmon) This part is Protein on the
Human body. 7. Fish Eggs (Roe and Caviar) You can get more
Proteins in these
types of food: 8.Yeast Extract Spread 9. Lobster and Crab 10. Lentils, Pulses, and Peanuts For instance, your body uses protein to make
hemoglobin , the part of red blood cells that carries oxygen to every part of your body. So as much as you know, protein is very important for your body. If you don't have any protein you'll start getting weak,eventually you might even die. Protein isn’t particularly dangerous, but if do you get too much proteins you might/will: gain weight, have risk of disease, kidney problems, seizures, dehydration, nutritional deficiencies, intestinal irritation and many more problems. Just be sure to have just
the right amount of proteins!! Here is some pictures
of how proteins look like There are two types of protein- Incomplete and Complete Protein.
Complete proteins usually comes from animal
sources, such as cheese, milk, and eggs. However, these food source are high in saturated fat so we should monitor the amount of proteins from these sources.

Incomplete proteins usually come from plants ( etc corn, beans ,and peanuts) since these proteins
are incomplete, they must be supplemented with
other incomplete proteins to provide the necessary nutrients to make them complete. Proteins may be purified from other cellular components using a variety such as ultracentrifugation,precipitation,electrophoresis,and chromatography; the advent of genetic engineering has made possible a number of methods to facilitate purification..Methods commonly used to study protein structure and function include immunohistochemistry, site-directed mutagenesis, nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectrometry. Other proteins are used to build cardiac muscle. What's that? Your heart! In fact, whether you're running or just hanging out, protein is doing important work like moving your legs, moving your lungs, and protecting you from disease. If you eat lots of food that has proteins that are good for you, then it'll make you strong .
LIKE THIS: By: Connor By:Annie By: Connor Proteins is more important than you think,
it' s as important as water. Proteins
helps our body function properly. So now you know how proteins
are very important for your body.
I bet, now you know more information
about proteins than you use to. More Facts About Protein By: Bryan By: Connor, Annie, Bryan, and Andrew Importance of Protein Proteins are essential nutrients for the human body. By: Andrew They are one of the building blocks of body tissue, and can also serve as a fuel source. Proteins are polymer chains made of amino acids linked together by peptide bonds. Aside from water, proteins are the most abundant kind of molecules in the body. Proteins are one of the key nutrients for success in terms of sports Milk and milk-derived foods are also good sources of protein. We would like to Thank you for Listening to us About Protein. We hope you learned something more then you knew about Protein! The End
