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.

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.

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.

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).

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.
