My purpose of sharing this post is to help create an awareness of the body cells and its importance in human nutrition.
How often have you thought about your cells and how they are feeling or what they need ?
When the cells in our body are given adequate nutrients and water, each of our body parts will naturally be regulated and function properly.
Healthy cells = healthy tissues = healthy organs = health organ systems
Healthy cells are the foundation of human body. The human body has 11 organ systems :
The human body has trillion of cells. Each and every one of these cells “work” 24 hour a day,
365 days a year, to :
~ Eat/Feed : Assimilate nutrients from the bloodstream
~ Work : Perform a very specific function within the body
~ Eliminate/Cleanse : Release waste material into the bloodstream
~ Build/Reproduce : Cells are constantly growing and reproducing
~ Communicate/Interrelate : With other cells, enzymes, hormones, etc.
What are your responsibilities to your cells ?
~Ensure all the necessary nutrients (protein, water, oxygen, vitamins, minerals, etc) are plentiful in the bloodstream so that the cells can happily feast.
~ Ensure the bloodstream is not contaminated with detrimental or foreign substances, toxic chemicals, etc. Too much of these harmful substances cause our cells to become confused and desperate. In their attempt for survival, they begin to absorb things they shouldn’t.
~ Ensure the cell membranes are healthy so that the proper exchange of nutrients and wastes can occur.
The basic needs of a cell :
* Water : A constant supply of fresh, pure water
* Oxygen : A fresh, constant supply
* Protein (amino acid) : Make up the largest proportion of each cell aand are the building blocks of each and every cell,
hormone, tissue. muscle, enzyme, bone , etc
* Carbohydrates (polysaccharides), essential fats 9lipids), vitamins and minerals
The Importance Of Protein
Protein is the key ingredient in forming various organs and tissues in our body as well as the major component of our body’s hormones. It also regulates physiological functions. Therefore, every parts of our body need protein.
Protein Deficiency Will Lead To..
*Poor immune system to counter disease
*Unable to excrete excess water in the body which caused swelling of body
*Loss of muscle suppleness
*Change of hair colour
*Unable to produce blood and hormones
*Organ malfunction which eventually lead to death
