More on Amino Acids

You probably are wondering about what amino acids are what exactly they for are so here are some tidbits on amino acids.

Amino acids are organic acids that come from protein. When we eat protein containing products such as meat, our body breaks down the protein so it can be digested in a simpler form. This is the amino acid.

Amino acids are colorless and are tiny crystalline substances that are soluble in water and are easily diffusible. When we have amino acids in our body, this means that our body can break down the protein we take.

Amino acids serve a good purpose in our body. They are necessary in building up cells of living organisms therefore we can say that they are also needed in the repair of damaged areas in the body especially when the protein breaks down during metabolism. They therefore help in the wear and tear process.

Amino acids are also protein storages. This goes for such cases such as our grandparents. There are some amino acids which cannot be synthesized by the body and they are called essential amino acids. We need these nutrients too for the function of our bodies.

Amino acids also help in the synthesis process. They synthesize bile acids, plasma proteins, hemoglobin, hormones, milk proteins in breast feeding mothers, and a lot of other enzymes and hormones that we produce I our body.

Amino acids also give us the energy that we need. They also help in the excretion of harmful toxins inside our body. Without amino acids, we might not be able to have wastes excreted from our body and we could get sick.

Amino acids are essential in our lives. They help our body function to its best performing state. Take note, amino acids are always essential to the growth and maintenance of life.

Best Fish Oil – Your Basic Knowledge About Fish Oil!

Nature, for men has been the sole and the primary reliance for nutrition and different sources and needs that make life easier. For much of the years that have built the foundations of medicine, nature has become medicine’s sole producer of subjects. These are so called subjects whether they may be used for certain experiments like defining the nature of a disease, a cure for a disease and even for the search of new essential nutrients that can help men achieve the health to ward off diseases and other ailments. And just like its usual role, nature has once again portrayed that it must not be taken for granted in the form of essential nutrients that can be found in some of nature’s off springs-the fish.

For most people fish has become a source of income for regardless of social standing as well as a significant source of food and nutrient like iodine. However, tuna and salmon among the long line of family of fishes which only God knows how many, have been found to have the richest sources of best fish oil, or the essential fatty acids. Omega 3 as they are called or n-6 fatty acids scientifically, has gained attention when research and science have found out that these essential fatty acids help in certain processes in the body. It has been linked to the development of a supportive and a defensive aspect of the kidneys, dermal or skin integrity and digestion as well. In the market, you may have encountered several sources of fatty acids being offered like plant sources. These may include flaxseed and linseed oil. However, these sources have been found to be less efficient in preventing heart diseases and protecting the cardio vascular system than their fish-source counterparts. This is due to the fact that when taken orally, the plant source fatty acid may take a longer time for the body or the gastro intestinal system to be specific, making it harder to break down. It may also have less efficient effect since it can only be converted to ala and not DHA or EPA, both of which are essential for the human biology. So it is better to opt for fish source of fatty acids.

There have been several studies that have proven that people with exercise, medication, diet and along with the best fish oil, have shown significant weight loss and reduction with the risks of heart diseases as well as cancer. It has also been found to increase survival rate for prostate cancers with less tumor growth.

Health In A Can: Cheap, Tasty & Really Really Good For You

Part of the reason I started this blog was so that I could write on things that I am passionate about. I love researching, talking and discussing everything to do with health and fitness. It impacts a lot on my life, and outside of my Volleyball it’s my main focus. There are certain things I write about because I see a trend in a gym, or in the industry that I want to discuss, clarify or completely discredit. Sometimes I just write about things because I love them. I love Tuna.

Tuna rocks. Really, it is a great food. I get that it is an acquired taste, and some of my friends gag when I get my tuna dishes out. I think it all started with my father. His famous and most eaten dish right through my childhood was Tuna based. Lettuce, Tomato, maybe some Carrot, a LOT of low fat Italian Dressing, two cans of Tuna, some sliced cheese…all topped with Tomato Sauce (Ketchup for you Americans). Disgusting eh. It really does stink the kitchen out. And no, I’m not going to add it to my list of recommended recipes. What I am trying to get at is, I was bought up with Tuna around my house, and I love it. I’m an athlete, and I live alone in a foreign country and I’ll be honest, my cooking skills are minimal. I love Tuna on Rice, with a bit of Sweet Chili sauce, I love it in Salads (minus the Tomato Sauce), I love Tuna bakes (even if I have safety issues with hot ovens) and I love Tuna on top of Veggies (with a bit of Pasta Sauce and Cheese).

What Is So Good About Tuna?

Mmm, for one, it’s very tasty. But that’s subjective.

  • Tuna is a great source of lean protein. Protein is essential to building muscle.
  • Tuna has high quality protein that is easily digestible.
  • Low in Saturated Fat.
  • It’s pretty cheap.
  • It is a low cholesterol food.
  • Tuna is a rich source of nutrients that are essential to healthy and balanced diets.
  • It has a lot of Omega 3 fatty acids, which have been shown to
    • lower the risk of heart disease,
    • ease joint pain,
    • reduce asthma complications,
    • and are essential in the growth of young children.

Tuna…get on it.
