The Diversity of Life; By Ken O’Connor, Chief Science Officer
Whether a wallaby or whale, man or mouse, the diversity of life is made possible by proteins and amino acids. There are more than 50,000 different proteins in the human body, making up our hair, bones, organs, enzymes, antibodies, and hormones. As each person’s set of proteins is unique to themselves, the overall number of proteins possible in mankind numbers well into the hundreds of billions.
A PROTEIN IS LIKE A SERIES OF COLORED BEADS STRUNG TOGETHER INTO TWISTED AND VARYING SHAPES
"It is their ability to form intricate shapes that give proteins form, functionality, and stability".
This great variety of proteins is due to the infinite number of sequences that just 20 or so amino acids can create to make us who we are. It may not seem that just 20 or so amino acids could result in much variety, but consider this: The English dictionary includes 450,000 words made up of 26 letters. And these words have rules governing the placement of vowels and constants, whereas amino acids in a protein have no such rules to follow. Plus there is no limit to how long a chain of amino acids can be.
One of the main reasons we need protein in our daily diet is to ensure we’re getting enough amino acids. Without sufficient quantities of amino acids, we cannot build the proteins we need to repair and replace new tissues. Our bodies require a continuous supply of amino acids in sufficient quantities to meet the demand of our organs.
DID YOU KNOW THAT PROTEINS ARE BY WEIGHT THE LARGEST PERCENTAGE (NEXT TO WATER) OF ALL THE COMPONENTS FOUND IN OUR BODIES?
Enzymes are involved in nearly every chemical reaction in our bodies. This very important function makes having the correct amount and type of amino acids available to every cell in our bodies, crucial to a normal life.
Most hormones are made of proteins.
Antibody proteins are our primary defense against disease and allergens. Each antibody protein is designed to fight only one specific invader. We have an antibody making machine in our bodies to fight every cold or virus that we’ve had since childhood. Without sufficient amino acids to build the specific protein off a re-invasion, our bodies cannot maintain its resistance to disease.
Fluid balance must be carefully maintained for a cell to remain alive, and proteins help maintain that balance. Too much fluid and a cell will rupture, too little fluid and the cell will cease to function. childhood. Without sufficient amino acids to build the specific protein to fight off a re- invasion, our bodies cannot maintain its resistance to disease.
Our blood must remain within the narrow pH range of 7.35 and 7.45, and proteins help keep our blood pH in check. If these limits are exceeded, your health would be severely jeopardized.
THE FLUIDS WITH OUR BODIES ARE LIKE A NUTRIENT BROTH, THE AMINO ACIDS THAT CIRCULATE THROUGHOUT OUR BODIES ARE LIKE THE LETTERS OF THE ENGLISH ALPHABET WAITING TO BE PUT INTO A DIVINE ORDER WE KNOW AS HUMAN LIFE.
As you can see, amino acids play a critical role to the proteins we need, and therefore, selecting a good source of protein becomes imperative. The recommended daily intake of 45 – 65 grams of protein must contain all 20 amino acids. Although our bodies have the synthesize amino acids, nearly half of the 20 cannot be synthesized. These are called the essential amino acids.
To avoid a serious deficiency in your body be sure you’re getting all 20. There are two ways to accomplish this – from eating complete proteins or through mutual supplementation. Complete proteins include red meats, fish, poultry, and milk products. Some nutritionists recommend these foods be eaten in moderation only. So another dietary choice is mutual supplementation. This is where you combine two or more sources, each of which supplies the amino acids missing from the other.
