Biochemical metabolisms in the body


Metabolism: The metabolism represents a superior description for the totality of all vital, biochemical proceses with the construction, dismantling and rebuilding of an organism or by the exchange between the organism and his environment. These biochemical processes run off in plants, animals and human beings, as well as in microorganisms and serve the construction and the preservation of body substance or cell substance as well as the power production and with it the maintenance of the bodily functions.


Basic elements: Hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen and oxygen are four basic elements of the organisms. The whole biomass exists to 99% of these four elements. The body, primarily, consists of about 70% of water and of living tissue. 


1 Hydrogen - Component of the water: Medium for all cellular processes and material transports, organic compound - basic element: 10% of the human biomass  


2 Oxygen - for all respiratory processes of vital importance - basic element: 63% of the human biomass


3 Carbons - all living tissue is built up of organic carbon compound - basic element: 20% of the human biomass 


4 Nitrogen - is bound organically in an energy-intensive process and made available - basic element: 6% of the human biomass 


Mineral and nutrients: 1% of the biomass of the human being consists of mineral substances, like trace elements as well as other nutrients,as for example vitamins and amino acids. Every single nutrient has quite special functions in the metabolism balance. We can take up the mineral and nutrients about certain food or repair efficiently food-conditioned deficiency symptoms with the help of compact food supplements.
