Man's Food Module 6 - Water   Key Terms • Intracellular Fluid Compartment ­ fluids found inside the cell • Extracellular fluid compartment ­ fluids found outside the cell • Interstitial fluids ­ fluids found in between cells • Electrolytes ­ charged ions that create an electrical current in solvents like water • Solvent ­ the kind of liquids that substances dissolve in (water is universal solvent • Water balance ­ equal amount of water leaving and entering the body • Insensible water loss ­ water that the body loses through daily activity (ex/ sweat) • Dehydration ­ state where there is not enough water in the body • Diuretics ­ substances that make the body lose water (ex/ alcohol) • Osmosis ­ a solvent moving from higher concentrated areas to lower concentrated areas to  create balance • Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH) ­ a hormone that makes the kidneys concentrate and reduce  the volume of urine to bring down rates of water loss • Hyponatremia ­ a condition where there is not enough sodium in the blood   Compartmentalization • Compartments are in the body so that water can be controlled ◦ Water inside the cells (intracellular) makes up 50% of water in the body and holds potassium  • Water outside body cells (extracellular) holds remaining water; holds sodium • Potassium and sodium work together to move water in and out of cells through "pump"  system   • Extracellular water had three sub­compartments ◦ Intravascular (water in vascular system) • Water in blood vessels ◦ Extravascular (water outside vascular system) • Holds water surrounding the blood vessels ◦ Interstitial  • Water surrounding and in between cells • 80% of extracellular cells   Exchanges  • Various body exchanges allow water to move through compartments • Water as a medium allows small molecules of nutrients to be transported • Specific exchanges ◦ Alveolar Air (lung) ­ blood plasma, oxygen in/carbon dioxide out ◦ Blood plasma ­ erythrocyte fluid ­  oxygen, carbon dioxide, and other small  molecules move in and out ◦ Blood plasma ­ interstitial fluid ­ water, carbon dioxide, inorganic ions, and small  organic molecules move in and out ◦ Interstitial ­ intracellular ­ gases, water, and small organic molecules are  exchanged   Functions of water • Keeps bones healthy • Universal solvent ­ most bodily nutrients are soluble in water; allows it to efficiently  transport nutrients (the one nutrient not soluble in water is fat) • Bio­chemical reactions ­ many biochemical reactions need water as a reactant (ex/ digestion water is needed to break bonds) • Lubricant ­ helps moisturize skin and prevent heat damage etc. • Regulating body temperature ­ we sweat so that our body can cool down; sweat evaporating off the skin takes heat with it   Sources of water • Water comes from the foods we eat as well as the liquids we drink • Another source is metabolic water that is produced through the metabolism of sugars, fats,  and proteins   Water Balance • There has to be a balance of water going into and out of the body • Condition of edema ◦ Edema makes tissues swollen ◦ Water acts as a transport system that is a give­and­take; if it is not in balance then  excessing fluid will move into tissues • Edema normally causes swelling in various parts of the body   Maintaining water balance • Balance in regulated by changes in osmotic pressure ◦ Force that keeps water in the correct compartments • Osmotic pressure on one side of barrier and hydrostatic pressure on the other • Osmotic pressure ­ ratio of concentrations of solutes to concentration of solutions • Change in osmotic pressure picked up by osmoreceptors in blood ◦ Signal the hypothalamus in the brain ­­> signal pituitary gland (which determines  whether to store or eliminate water)   Dehydration • Natural water loss occurs through: ◦ Kidneys ◦ Skin ◦ Lungs ◦ Tear ducts of eyes ◦ Intestinal flu or diarrhea   Preventing dehydration • Normally greatest percentage of water loss comes from exercise • To prevent dehydration ◦ 20 oz. of water 10­15 minutes before exercise ◦ 4­6 oz. of water 10­15 minutes after exercise ◦ 16 oz. of water for every pound of water lost during exercise     Module 7 - Proteins   Key terms • Acid group ­ The COOH group that is part of every amino acid. • Amine group ­ part of amino acid with nitrogen • Amino acid pools ­ A limited supply of amino acids stored in your blood and cells that is  used to build new proteins. • Amino acids ­ The building blocks of protein containing carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and  nitrogen. All amino acids are composed of an acid group, an amine group, and a unique  side chain. • Catalysts ­ Substances that speed up reactions in your body without being changed,  damaged, or used up. • Coenzymes ­ Substances that are needed by enzymes to perform many chemical reactions  in the body. • Collagen ­ A ropelike, fibrous protein that is the most abundant protein in the body. • Connective tissues ­ Tissues that support and connect body parts and provide protection and insulation. • Denatured ­ The alteration of a protein’s shape, which changes the structure and function of the protein. • DNA ­ The blueprint in cells that stores all genetic information. DNA remains in the  nucleus of the cell and directs the synthesis of proteins. • Enzymes ­ substances that act like catalysts and speed up reactions in body • Gene ­ a DNA segment that codes for a specific protein • Peptide bonds ­ bonds that connect amino acids • Precursor ­ substance that comes before a step or reaction and converted to another  substance in the body • Protein turnover ­ continual process of degrading and synthesizing protein • Proteins ­ compounds that are polymers of amino acids and are in all living cells • RNA ­ A molecule that carries out orders of DNA • Sickle­cell anemia ­ blood disorder caused by a genetic defect in development in  hemoglobin • Side chain ­ side group of an amino acid that provides with unique qualities • Urea ­ nitrogen­containing waste product that is excreted in urine   Amino acids • Proteins are made of long chains of amino acids  (made of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and  nitrogen) • Amino acids bind in various combinations • Muscle has unique shape ­­>proteins make up "structural functional relationships" in the  body   How proteins are made • DNA is a genetic indicator that has template to making protein ◦ RNA copies the DNA template • Messenger RNA signals the transport RNA to bring in individual amino acids • Three different codons represent 20+ amino acids ◦ Purpose is to indicate structural position of each amino acids • Amino acids are added to the chain at their appropriate structural positions ◦ Process continues until the protein is done   Structure of Proteins • Proteins are formed in a three­dimensional structure • Specific structure of proteins have 4 types ◦ Primary • Amino acid backbone • Forming starts with first amino acid and then moves on • Dictates what will happen through all the other types ◦ Secondary ◦ Tertiary ◦ Quaternary   Secondary, tertiary, and quaternary structures • Secondary ◦ Twisting of the protein ◦ Protein begins to twist on itself (hydrogen bond) ◦ Has three sub­structures • Helix, sheeting, and random coiling • Tertiary ◦ Molecule fold to make three­dimensional shape ◦ Includes interaction of amino acid side groups that cause the molecule to twist  and bend ◦ Drive it to a functional shape • Quaternary ◦ Two or more protein molecules interact to make one functional protein ◦ Ex/ hemoglobin ◦ Not all proteins have a quaternary structure   Function of proteins • Muscle fibers • Bones and teeth • Elastin and collagen • Skin • Hair • Nails • Blood vessels   • All enzymes are protein • Proteins regulates actions within the body   Dietary requirements • World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that men and women obtain % of their  calories as protein (approx. 38 grams for a man burning 3,000 calories/day and 29 grams  for woman burning 2,300 calories/day) • Studies show that adult women have 46 grams of protein/day and adult men have 58  grams/day   Measuring proteins • Protein quality can be measured with protein efficiency ratio (PER) technique   Types of vegetarian diets • Strict vegan ­ eats only plant material/foods of plant origins • Selective vegetarian ­ eats plant material and selectively chosen meat • Lacto­ovo vegetarian ­ eats plant material, eggs, and dairy products • Fruitarian ­ eats only fruits, nuts, oil, honey ◦ This diet makes it difficulty to meet body's protein requirement   Dietary risks and benefits • Risks ◦ Lack of quality protein ◦ Body not getting enough vitamin B12, calcium, iron, zinc ◦ Plant toxicants • Benefits ◦ Lower risk of heart disease and some cancers because let fat content ◦ Economical for environment because food takes less energy to produce ◦ Diet results in a list of food that is almost identical to USDA recommendations for a healthy diet • Mitigation ◦ Eat a variety of foods to ensure the body has enough protein ◦ Search for plant foods in these minerals, or supplement the diet with vitamins ◦ Be knowledgeable about cooking requirements for plant foods   Protein deficiencies • Lack of protein = protein deficiency • If malnutrition becomes starvation, then the body breaks down everything to maintain  energy balance • Incaparina is a product developed to fight malnutrition when there is not enough protein   Consequence of protein­less diets • Essential amino acids are needed in protein synthesis ◦ Synthesis stops if not enough amino acids • Some symptoms if there are not enough quality proteins ◦ Brittle hair/nails ◦ Fatigue ◦ Flaky skin ◦ Cuts that will not heal
