Muscle, skin, hair, nails and brain are just some of the body parts that are protein-based. Estimates suggest that about half of the human body's dry weight is made up of protein. Many of the foods we eat contain protein, particularly foods like chicken, beef, lamb and fish and legumes like beans and lentils. These proteins are digested to release amino acids. In the body the amino acids are used to make new proteins, converted into hormones such as adrenalin or used as an energy source. Proteins are made up of chains of smaller chemicals called amino acids. There are about 20 different amino acids that, in different combinations, make up the countless millions of proteins available in nature.
A protein can consist of between 50 and tens of thousands of amino acids, linked together by a kind of binder called a peptide bond. There are two broad classes of amino acid, those that can bemade by the human body (non-essential amino acids) and those that can only be supplied by food (essential amino acids).
The human body cannot store protein, so it must be supplied on a daily basis from the foods we eat. Strict vegetarians who do not consume any animal products at all are at increased risk of protein deficiency if they do not eat a wide range of complementary plant proteins. Symptoms of protein deficiency include:
- Wasting and shrinkage of muscle tissue
- Edema (build-up of fluids, particularly in the feet and ankles)
- Anemia (the blood's inability to deliver sufficient oxygen to the cells, usually caused by dietary deficiencies such as lack of iron)
- Slow growth (in children)
A protein-rich food, such as meat, is broken down into individual proteins by the gastric juices in the stomach. Pancreatic enzymes released into the first portion of the small intestine (duodenum) split the proteins into their separate amino acids. The amino acids are absorbed by the small finger like projections or villi line the intestine walls, and are taken to the liver via the bloodstream.
One of the byproducts (conversion) of protein metabolism is ammonia. In high levels, ammonia is extremely toxic and dangerous to the body. Ammonia is converted into urea by the liver; it is then processed by the kidneys and passes through the bloodstream as a filter to the blood and blood cells. It is then eliminated from the body via urine. Nutri-Mastic supports the conversion and the excretion of the toxic byproduct ammonia.
The normal gastrointestinal tract contains the most toxic environment to which most people are ever exposed. From the mouth to the anus, every centimeter is colonized by bacteria, with the colon bearing the greatest load. Scavenge ammonia (toxicity) that has not been incorporated into urea makes it impossible for probiotics to reach its desired area (the colon) People on the autistic spectrum generally do not colonize intestinal flora easily, and their digestive systems tend to fall out of balance very easily. Nutri-Mastic™ lessens scavenge ammonia, which is critically important for digestive health, to help grow probiotics in the intestines. >> Read more about Nutri-Mastic™
While you are finishing your latest meal, digestive enzymes are pouring into your small intestine from your liver, pancreas and gall bladder to break down the large macro-molecules into easily absorbable smaller particles. In order to process food as it passes through the intestines the body must absorb nutrients into the bloodstream as they are broken down into smaller micro-molecules. Minerals that are absorbed in their Ionic Form are electrically charged and have unique properties that distinguish them from each other and allow them to freely take part in biochemical communication throughout the body. These communications help nutrients to move to specific areas of the body, such as all the peristalsis muscles (involuntary muscles) such as the heart, lungs and digestive system which significantly help in all forms of digestive functions.
