Where do the calories come from ?
Macronutrients are made up of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Their goal is to provide energy to our body and to ensure the proper functioning of vital functions. A good distribution of macros, according to its needs, its morphology and its physical activity, allows to optimize its results, whether in the context of weight loss or muscle gain.
To calculate its macronutrients we must calculate in grams, calories or percentage, the amounts of protein, fat and carbohydrates that our body needs to be at the top of its form. The official distribution recommendations for a healthy and balanced diet are as follows:
Manganese is a trace element (necessary for humans to survive), manganese deficiency (less than 2 to 3 mg / day for an average adult), leads – depending on the animal model – to reproductive disorders for both sexes, bone malformations, depigmentations, ataxia and alteration of the central nervous system.
A precursor and constituent of coenzyme A, vitamin B5 promotes the growth and resistance of the skin and mucous membranes. It is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins and participates in the synthesis of certain hormones. Pantothenic acid is destroyed by heat in aqueous solution.
Consuming sugar provides short-term chemical energy, but it is not a form of energy storage for the body. Some of the sugar consumed can be used immediately for energy if needed within minutes, some will be stored in the liver and muscles (as glycogen) for use within hours, and, if there is an excess, some will be converted to fat (triglycerides) for storage in fat cells.
As soon as we consume glucose, a component of sugar, insulin is secreted: its main role is to promote the use of glucose by all the cells in the body. Insulin also stimulates glycolysis, blocks lipolysis (use of stored fat) and promotes lipogenesis through an enzyme (triglyceride synthase), i.e. the production of fat in adipose tissue. Indeed, the hepatic glycogen stock is limited and the muscular glycogen can only be used by the muscles themselves.
This regulation of glucose, with a system of storage and release, provides a continuous supply of glucose to the brain. Although the brain accounts for only 2% of body weight, it uses 20% to 30% of the available glucose, which is its only source of energy (apart from ketone bodies synthesized during prolonged fasting).
Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin.
In the body, it exists as retinol, retinal, retinoic acid (tretinoin) and retinyl phosphate. These molecules are altered by oxygen in the air, alterations accelerated by light and heat.
Foods of animal origin (meat, dairy products and especially liver) contain retinol and retinol esters while plants mainly contain carotenes which are precursors of retinol. A beta-carotene molecule, by hydrolysis of the 15-15 ′ bond under the influence of a carotenoid mono-oxygenase (ββ-carotene 15,15 ′ mono-oxygenase), gives two molecules of vitamin A. On the other hand, the other two carotenes (alpha and gamma) only give rise to a single vitamin A molecule.
Vitamin C is an enzymatic cofactor involved in a number of physiological reactions (hydroxylation). It is required in the synthesis of collagen and red blood cells and contributes to the immune system3. It also plays a role in iron metabolism as a promoter of its absorption, its use is therefore not recommended in patients with iron overload and particularly hemochromatosis. In its oxidized form (dehydroascorbic acid), it crosses the blood-brain barrier to reach the brain4 and several organs with high vitamin C concentrations. Skeletal muscle responds quickly to vitamin C intake, but also loses it quickly if the vitamin is not taken in sufficiently5. It is an antioxidant, a molecule capable of countering the harmful action of oxidants such as radicals. D-ascorbic acid is also used for this purpose, but unlike L-ascorbic acid, it has no vitamin activity.
