Few people think every day about what to eat and how to optimally build your diet. Unfortunately, the food most often think only people with serious health problems. Everyone knows that the diet should be protein. What is this stuff?

Difficult properties

what is protein

Proteins (Proteins) are giant macromolecules of life, which can consist of multiple chains. The smallest blocks from which to build these magnificent buildings – amino acids. The result is that, according to the rule of emergence, the whole molecule becomes very complex properties not reducible to properties of amino acids. The number of functions performed by the proteins in the human body is incalculable, although the function group is still allocated.

And if you make a mistake?

So squirrels? What it is and how one type differs from another? Proteins differ in the number and sequence of amino acids. One small shift – and molecules of the proteins can no longer perform its functions. Sometimes the genetic code creeps in error, and by property encoding of amino acids are replaced by wrong - there are serious disease like myasthenia gravis, or sickle cell anemia. Very important for the body protein. What is genetic disorders associated with its structure? It is an inevitable and serious disease at the level of the whole organism.

Mechanism of catalysis

protein molecules

Biological macromolecules proteins are particularly important to humans because of their catalytic activity. Most of the processes in our body cannot occur without this activity, because the reaction is unable to begin spontaneously due to energy reasons. Why is protein important? What he envisaged is in relation to catalysis? You may seem more familiar concept-a synonym of "enzyme". It communicates with components of the reaction active points, allowing the reaction to start, and after happily “releases” substance. Thus, it facilitates the beginning of the reaction, but the it is not consumed, like any other catalyst.

Based movement

A Very important structural function. Proteins in almost pure form are found in the muscles. Meat that many people eat to get proteins – the muscles of animals. Although the best proteins – shredded (as in protein shakes). Meat is also quite good. Worse is the situation with that of soy products and legumes. There's a lot of protein, but extract it from the product is difficult for the body.

At a microscopic level

best proteins

Proteins form the basis of the cell called the cytoskeleton, which gives shape. Another important part of the protein in the transport of many substances that are not able to pass through the cell membrane. At the cellular level is the already mentioned catalytic activity.

What proteins are best to eat? Traditionally, animals are considered to be important, but they can be substituted with soy if this plant was pre-treated well enough. For example, protein shakes made from soy contain complete protein and absorbed better muscle meat. Why plant protein is better for your health? It is not associated with a huge number of fat and does not contribute to the development of cholesterol.
