Nutrition Elements Summary
Carbs and Sugars
Source: Nutrient data for this listing was provided by USDA
Fat is one of the three main groups of macronutrients in the human diet, along with carbohydrates and protein, and the main components of common food products such as milk, butter, tallow, lard, bacon and cooking oils. They are an important and dense source of food energy for many animals and play important structural and metabolic functions in most living things, including energy storage, waterproofing, and thermal insulation. The human body can produce the fat it needs from other food ingredients except for a few essential fatty acids which must be included in the diet. Dietary fats are also the carriers of certain flavor and aroma ingredients and vitamins which are not soluble in water.
B vitamins facilitate the conversion of food (carbohydrates) into energy (glucose). Niacin is helpful in the process of regulating stress hormones and improves blood circulation. These vitamins are water soluble and the body does not store them.
Proteins are assemblages of amino acids, 9 of which are essential for the body. There are two sources of protein sources: proteins of animal origin and proteins of plant origin.Proteins are essential for all functions of the body because they provide amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of all body tissues, including muscle and body tissues. Eating protein at every meal can also make you feel full for a longer period of time.
Whether you eat protein to lose fat, gain muscle, or both, it is important to look for lean protein, or protein that contains very little fat. Some fats are important (see next section), but the type of fat is very important, so not all fat-rich proteins are equally healthy. Examples of lean proteins include skinless chicken, tuna, tilapia, extra-lean ground beef, egg whites, Greek yogurt and low-fat or fat-free cottage cheese, and tofu.
When reading a label, be sure to check the protein-to-fat ratio. Lean protein has much more protein than fat (for example, egg whites are fat-free but have a lot of protein).
Saturated fatty acids are lipid molecules in which all carbon atoms carry the maximum possible hydrogen atoms. No hydrogen atoms can be added, the fat is said to be “saturated” and all bonds between carbon atoms are single (no carbon-carbon double bonds).
The impact of saturated fats on the body depends on the food you eat and its quantity. In excess saturated fatty acids form bad cholesterol in the body, which leads to clogged arteries. But, in reasonable amounts, saturated fatty acids are good for the body because they provide energy and vitamins (A, D, E, K).
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.
Sodium is a mineral that plays an important role in the body’s state of hydration. It is present in the blood and in the extracellular fluid in which cells are bathed. Sodium also helps maintain the acid-base balance and is essential in the transmission of nerve impulses and muscle contraction. However, in excess it can have deleterious consequences. This is why current recommendations aim to limit sodium consumption.
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.
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.
Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin essential to the normal functioning of the brain (it participates in the synthesis of neurotransmitters), the nervous system (it is essential for maintaining the integrity of the nervous system and especially the myelin sheath that protects the nerves and optimizes their functioning) and for the formation of blood. It is one of the eight B vitamins. It is normally involved as a cofactor in the metabolism of every cell in the human body, especially in the synthesis of DNA and its regulation, as well as in the synthesis of fatty acids and in energy production.
It exists in several forms belonging to the cobalamin family: cyanocobalamin, hydroxocobalamin, methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, the first two being its stable forms. Cobalamins have a chemical structure similar to heme but the central iron atom is replaced by a cobalt atom, hence their name.
In very small quantities, zinc in assimilable form is an important trace element, essential to plant and animal organisms. When properly assimilated by organisms, it activates enzymes, influences growth, and promotes biochemical reactions and controls in the lung surfaces. The human body contains 2 g to 4 g. Daily requirements can be estimated at a minimum of 15 mg for a normal man, and up to twice that amount for a nursing woman.
Zinc is contained in a variety of yeasts (up to 100 mg per kilogram), in red beef (in the range of 50 mg to 120 mg per kilogram), and in a variety of commercial foods.
The bioavailability of zinc in food is not known. The bioavailability of zinc from plants is sometimes questioned. While it is true that plants contain antinutrients that decrease zinc absorption, zinc deficiency does not appear to be more common among vegans.
