Nutrition Elements Summary
Carbs and Sugars

Cholesterol is a lipid present in the body in the liver, brain and spinal cord. About 70% of cholesterol is made by the body, the rest comes from food. It is then found in many foods of animal origin. Cholesterol allows, among other things, to synthesize certain hormones as well as vitamin D. It is also a constituent of cell membranes. While a normal level of cholesterol is vital for the body, excess cholesterol can be dangerous for cardiovascular health. A distinction must be made between good cholesterol: HDL and bad cholesterol: LDL.
Vitamin B2, corresponding to riboflavin, or lactoflavin, is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for the synthesis of flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) and flavin mononucleotide (FMN), two cofactors essential to flavoproteins.
Vitamin B2 plays an important role in transforming simple foods (carbohydrates, fats and proteins) into energy. It is involved in the repair metabolism of the muscles.
Selenium is a trace element that is a constituent of selenoproteins, which include the main intracellular antioxidant, glutathione peroxidase . It is found in eggs (16-48% of the average daily requirement, depending on whether it is a duck, chicken, goose or turkey egg and on the farming system) , pork or beef kidneys, garlic, fish and shellfish. Western nutrition more than meets daily requirements for this element , but it is impossible to predict body selenium levels from dietary intake because its utilization and retention are dependent on the presence of folic acid, vitamin B12 and negatively affected by the presence of homocysteine.
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).
Thiamine or vitamin B1 (or aneurine) is a metabolic precursor of thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP), a coenzyme essential to certain decarboxylases. In animals, thiamine is a water-soluble vitamin from the family of B vitamins that they must find in their diet. On the other hand, it is synthesized by bacteria, plants and fungi. It is essential for the transformation of carbohydrates into energy by the Krebs cycle and is necessary for the proper functioning of the nervous system and muscles. It is in fact essential for the transformation of pyruvate produced by glycolysis and toxic for the nervous system.
In humans, a dietary vitamin B1 deficiency causes beriberi and can also cause Gayet-Wernicke encephalopathy.
