o People who eat poorly ▯ RDA for vitamin C  90 mg/day for males  non toxic ▯ ▯ Water  Water is regulated but NOT stored  Muscle contains 73% water ▯ Electrolytes  Ions are minerals that have electrical charges – called electrolytes  Where sodium goes water follows (know)  Ions: the amount of water in each compartment mainly ▯ Fluid balance is  Controlling the electrolyte concentration o “where ions go water is sure to follow o ex: drinking sea water  movement of water from a less concentrated to a more concentrated solution  osmosis o movement of water from less concentrated to a more concentrated solution Functions of water  body temperature regulation o water absorb any excess heat o body secretes fluids via perspiration o skin is cool as perspiration evaporates  removal of body waste o via urine o urea excretion o role of protein and sodium  typical volume of urine produces per day is 1 liter or more o a greater urine output that that is fine ▯ Minerals  Inorganic elements o Essential o 4% of body weight  Major minerals o Need > 100 mg/day o Sodium, calcium, phosphorus  Trace minerals o < 100 mg/ day o iron, zinc, iodine, fluoride  they make possible the transfer of nerve impulses  they are constituents of important body compounds  they DO NOT provide energy  they help maintain water balance  CALCIUM is the greatest amount of mineral in the average human body Bioavailability  Not all ingested minerals can be absorbed  Animal products are better absorbed!!! o No fiber  The same mineral present in two different foods may have different bio-availabilities  The trace mineral content of plants o Depend what type of soil serves as the medium  The refining process removes most trace minerals ▯ Sodium  Positive ion in extracellular fluid Aldosterone regulates sodium balance  Key for retaining body water  Excretion regulated by kidneys ▯ ▯ “Today’s sodium intake is tomorrow’s urine output” ▯ ▯ Causes of Hypertension  Aging  Atherosclerosis  Obesity 6x greater o Increase fat mass ▯ Sodium and Blood Pressure  Increased blood pressure to excrete sodium from the kidney o Salt sensitive people ▯ Minerals and Hypertension (NEED TO KNOW)  >1000 mg calcium a day lowers blood pressure  2-4 gm of potassium a day lowers blood pressure  magnesium may lower blood pressure at 2x the RDA (RDA about 400 mg we are low) ▯ Potassium  Associated with lowering blood pressure  Food sources o Milk, grains, fruits, vegetables  Adequate intake o About 5000 mg a day  Don’t need to know deficiency!!! ▯ Calcium  MAJOR MINERAL IN BODY  Makes up 40% of minerals in our body  Don’t absorb it very well  If deficient.. o You absorb it better than someone who isn’t deficient  Factors influencing absorption of calcium o Enhancing…  Slightly acidic environment  Vitamin D  PTH (parathyroid hormone) o Limits…  Fiber intake (phytates and oxalates)  Presence of polyphenols in tea  Aging  Lack of vitamin D  Blood calcium is regulated (ON REVIEW) o Blood level is maintained at the price of bone calcium o High or normal calcitonin is released  Signals for calcium to be released by bone o When low  Parathyroid hormone stimulates for calcium to be released by bone  Tells kidney to hold on to calcium  Tells kidney to activate vitamin D  Activate vitamin D and increases intestinal absorption of vitamin D  Functions of Calcium o Forming and maintaining bones  major role o Essential for  Blood clotting  Nerve impulses  Muscle contraction o Food sources  Milk, canned fish, tofu, calcium fortified food (orange juice)  spinach, kale, collard, mustard greens  but these contain fiber so harder to absorb o RDA is 1000 mg/ day  We consume about 40- 800 mg/ day  Benefits of calcium o Weight loss ▯ Magnesium  May decrease blood pressure  Primarily in green leafy plants  Food sources o Whole grains, chocolate, nuts, seeds o Found in hard tap water  RDA is 420 mg for men and 320 mg for women ▯ ▯ Trace Minerals  Needed in small amounts  Essential  Difficult to study due to the trace amounts needed by the body  Food content dependent on soil content ▯ Iron  Most common nutritional deficiency world wide!  Only trace mineral that is added back in the enrichment process o Because anemia is so common  Very hard time absorbing iron  If anemic it is easier to absorb iron than someone who isn’t low  Food sources o Heme iron (meat products) Vs. Nonheme iron (plant products) o Enriched grains, red meat, fortified cereals (Nonheme) o Milk (POO SOURCE)  Meat is the easiest way to absorb iron o Iron is wrapped up in fiber  Enhancing absorption.. o Vitamin C  Limits absorption o Phytic acid (grains – cereals) o Oxalic acid (leafy greens) ▯ ▯ KNOW IRON ABSORPTION IN THE GI (picture) ▯ ▯ jh ▯ ▯ ▯ DON’T NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ZINC ▯ ▯ Fluoride  Helps prevent tooth decay  Preventions of cavities  Sources o Most of it is absorbed o Fluoridate water o Toothpaste o Tea, marine fish (with bones), natural water sources  Adequate intake o 3.1-3.8 mg/ day for adults  toxicity o Colorado brown stain o Mottling (fluorosis) of the teeth in children o In high amounts can weaken teeth in children  over time ▯ Selenium  Readily absorbed  Excreted through the urine and feces ▯ Chromium  Enhances the effect of insulin  Increase the transport of glucose across the cell membrane  Popular with dieters and athletes  Lost in milling process  Sources o Beer, eggs, nuts, mushrooms, meats o Increased by using stainless steal utensils ▯ ▯ Osteoporosis  Bone types o Osteoclast: breaks down bone o Osteoblast: rebuild bone  Bone remodeling o Bone turnover  Osteoporosis is… o Decreased bone mass o Porous bone o Breakdown of bone exceeds rebuilding of bone o Bone becomes weak and brittle  Bone strength o Depends on bone mineral density and bone mass achieved o Related to age, gender, genetics, and dietary history o Peak bone density in childhood, adolescence ▯ Estrogen Exposure  Estrogen protective  Increased risk of not normal cycles  Amenorrheic o No cycle for about 6 months o Oligomenorrhea  36 days and 3-6 per year ▯ ▯ Anaerobic glycolysis  Limited oxygen to the muscle cells  Intense physical activity (sprinting) o Anything under 3 minutes is considered anaerobic  Pyruvate is converted to lactic acid  Only can use glucose  Come from muscle glycogen  Liver will store glucose  Uses dietary CHO  Can breakdown body to use body proteins for energy o Dietary protein Fat Fuel  Majority of stored energy in the body  Produces 120 ATP from a 16 carbon chain fatty acid  Trained muscles have more mitochondria to utilize fat as fuel  NOT useful for intense/brief anaerobic exercise  The more fatty acids released into the bloodstream, the more fat will be used by the muscle ▯
