Nutrition Elements Summary

Calcium is by far the most abundant metallic element in the body (1 to 2% by mass). It is mainly stored in the bones, of which it is an integral part. It contributes to the formation of the latter, as well as that of the teeth, and to the maintenance of their health. The mechanisms for maintaining a normal plasma ionized calcium concentration are, if necessary, at the expense of the skeleton and too great a decrease in calcium intake as well as an increase in excretion poses a risk to the skeleton and health. (osteoporosis in adults, rickets in children, increased risk of lead poisoning, etc.).
Calcium also plays an essential role in blood clotting, the maintenance of blood pressure and the contraction of muscles, including the heart, through its importance in neuromuscular functions. It is involved in the functioning of many enzymatic processes.
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) defines carbohydrates as a class of organic compounds containing one carbonyl group (aldehyde or ketone) and at least two hydroxyl groups (-OH). Included in this class are substances derived from monosaccharides by reduction of the carbonyl group, by oxidation of at least one functional group at the end of the chain to a carboxylic acid or by replacement of one or more hydroxyl groups by an atom of hydrogen, an amino group, a thiol group or any similar atom.
Copper is a trace element essential for life (humans, plants, animals, and micro-organisms). The human body normally contains copper at a concentration of about 1.4 to 2.1 mg per kg. Copper is found in the liver, muscles and bones. Copper is carried in the bloodstream by means of a protein called ceruleoplasmin71. After copper is absorbed from the intestine, it is transported to the liver, bound to albumin. The metabolism and excretion of copper is controlled by the delivery of ceruleoplasmin to the liver, and the copper is excreted in the bile. At the cellular level, copper is present in a number of enzymes and proteins, including cytochrome c oxidase and certain superoxide dismutases (SOD). Copper is used for the biological transport of electrons, e.g. the “copper blue” proteins, azurine and plastocyanine. The name “copper blue” comes from their intense blue color due to an absorption band (around 600 nm) by ligand / metal charge transfer (LMCT). Many mollusks and some arthropods, such as horseshoe crab, use a copper-based pigment, hemocyanin, for oxygen transport, rather than hemoglobin, which has an iron nucleus, and their blood is therefore blue, and not red, when it is oxygenated72.
Iron is a trace element and is one of the essential mineral salts found in food, but can be toxic in some forms. An iron deficiency is a source of anemia and can affect the cognitive and socio-emotional development of the childs brain or exacerbate the effects of certain intoxications (lead poisoning, for example).
Magnesium is involved in more than 400 biochemical reactions. It is particularly involved in the osmotic transport of glucose, the insulin transport of glucose and in all stages of energy production. A major mechanism of biochemical activation, consisting of adding a phosphate group to a protein, magnesium is a cofactor of phosphorylation. It is also an actor in homeostasis, a mechanism allowing the conservation of an internal balance (cell, heart rate, urination, digestion, body temperature, etc.) and an essential cofactor in the polymerization of nucleic acids.
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.
Potassium is an essential nutrient in the human diet.
Potassium in the form of the cation K+ is the major intracellular ion in the body. There is a concentration gradient in favor of the exit of the ion from the intracellular compartment to the extracellular compartment. This gradient is maintained by pumps located in the cell membranes, in particular the sodium-potassium pump is responsible for the existence of a negative resting potential present in all living cells.
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).
Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin represented by three main forms: pyridoxine, pyridoxal, and pyridoxamine.
Present in a wide variety of plant and animal foods, it is necessary for proper cell function, particularly the nervous system and skin.
Isolated B6 deficiency is rare. It is most often associated with multiple vitamin deficiencies, particularly the other B vitamins. These deficiencies are observed in particular in chronic alcoholics.
