The Proteins Myth.


Protein has been explained as the building block of life and a necessity in our diets.
What is proteins?

Proteins are large, complex molecules that play many critical roles in the body. … Proteins are made up of hundreds or thousands of smaller units called amino acids, which are attached to one another in long chains. There are 20 different types of amino acids that can be combined to make a protein.

Protein is found throughout the body—in muscle, bone, skin, hair, and virtually every other body part or tissue. It makes up the enzymes that power many chemical reactions and the hemoglobin that carries oxygen in your blood. At least 10,000 different proteins make you what you are and keep you that way.

Protein is made from twenty-plus basic building blocks called amino acids. Because we don’t store amino acids, our bodies make them in two different ways: either from scratch, or by modifying others. Nine amino acids—histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine—known as the essential amino acids, must come from food.

Phenylalanine is found naturally in the breast milk of mammals. It’s highly valuable for its analgesic and antidepressant effects.

Phenylalanine (symbol Phe or F)[3] is an essential α-amino acid with the formula C

  1. It can be viewed as a benzyl group substituted for the methyl group of alanine, or a phenyl group in place of a terminal hydrogen of alanine. This essential amino acid is classified as neutral, and nonpolar because of the inert and hydrophobic nature of the benzyl side chain. The L-isomer is used to biochemically form proteins, coded for by DNA. Phenylalanine is a precursor for tyrosine, the monoamine neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), and epinephrine (adrenaline), and the skin pigment melanin. It is encoded by the codons UUU and UUC.

Seaweeds demonstrate original and interesting nutritional characteristics. Protein concentration ranges from 5% to 47% of dry basic. Its value depends particularly on species and the environmental conditions. Seaweed protein is a source of all amino acids, especially glycine, alanine, arginine, proline, glutamic, and aspartic acids. In algae, essential amino acids (EAAs) represent almost a half of total amino acids and their protein profile is close to the profile of egg protein. In case of non-EAAs, all three groups (green, brown, and red seaweeds) contain the similar amount. Red seaweed seems to be a good source of protein because its value reaches 47%. The issue of protein malnutrition supports the trend to find a new and cheap alternative source of protein. Algae could play an important role in the above-mentioned challenge because of relatively high content of nitrogen compounds. Algae may be used in the industry as a source of ingredients with high nutritional quality.

All animals get there Amino acids from there mothers breast and then some from plants and sea vegetables, this including fish. This enables them to produce there own proteins in there bodies like they have been coded to do. Humans have decided to rob the animals of this proteins since they don’t have enough supply of it in the food supply. This Animal protein comes with other attachments such as fat, microbes, parasites, worms, other animal dna, mucus and energies. Our bodies are coded to make there own proteins. Sea vegetables are a powerful source of balanced omega acids which promotes the growth of proteins in the body. Get your sea vegetables at upendofoodsandherbs.com
