The taste of electrons? Part 3: Zinc, Selenium, Iron

The role of zinc could write a whole article independently. It is the most important trace mineral in our body and fairly easy to develop its deficiency. Suffice it to mention that the administration of zinc in the period after the operation speeds up the healing of wounds nearly doubled.

Selenium - the average consumption in the Polish population is about 70% of the approved daily demand for this mineral. His main role in our body, it is said enzyme involved in removing free radicals. There are strong indications of anticancer and antifungal activity of selenium.

Manganese - is highly underrated mineral. It plays a very important role in the mitochondria, which produce energy for us. Mitochondria are such a small self-DNA microorganisms that live with us in close symbiosis. Their DNA is very susceptible to damage. And it is precisely in the wall formed the majority of mitochondrial oxygen free radicals. If their DNA is damaged by free radicals, they do not produce energy, they may also begin to produce even larger quantities of oxygen free radicals. This leads to a vicious circle leading to the final stage of a serious disruption to the entire cell.

Iron - we all know that iron deficiency causes anemia. Yes. With the proviso that anemia is the last symptom of iron deficiency. First, it lacks in tissues such asfor the removal of free radicals by catalase, which decomposes hydrogen peroxide. For iron deficiency, in particular, are exposed to plenty of menstruating women. It is estimated that this problem affects about 20% of the population of women of childbearing age.

Let us now turn to a brief discussion of the action of vitamins antioxidant. The two most important are vitamin C and vitamin E. Man is one of the few animals in nature, which does not can produce the vitamin C. There are various information the daily demand for this vitamin. According to the tables, it is about 60 mg. But the goat, for example, produces in a day for up to 10 grams (10000mg!). Academics threaten that consumption such large doses can cause kidney stones. But the winner Nobel Prize in 1962, Linus Pauling been taking daily for up to 12g this vitamin and lived in good health 93 years. I think it is definitely threatening to grow into. Many researchers indicate that day should consume at least 500-1000mg of vitamin and personally I share that opinion. Vitamin C directly absorbs free radicals, so that they do not require the use of antioxidant enzymes.

Vitamin E is a very important antioxidant for approximately 10-15 kg lipid membranes present in our body. One free radical could feel the whole cascade of reactions lead to oxidation unsaturated fatty acids. This cascade proceeds until another fatty acid radical formed does not meet on their way vitamin E, which only breaks the chain reaction. Oxidized portions of fatty acids are transformed such to malondialdehyde, a cell can not remove from its interior. Emerging in the later stage accumulate lipofuscin and ceroidy in a cell for life. They are referred to as colors of old age. This is particularly important in the case of nerve cells and muscle, which are given to us once in a lifetime. To regenerate Vitamin E, floating in the cell membranes is used, among others Vitamin C.

Vitamin A is especially important as a protective antioxidant in retina.

Another antioxidant is Coenzyme Q10 or ubiquinone. It is component of the so-called. respiratory chain in the mitochondrial membrane, process that moves the electrons from hydrogen to oxygen-grabbing energy, which is in the process emits. It is a compound that swim in independently in the cytoplasm itself is antioxidant. Body human can synthesize it, but the process of synthesis decreases with age. Hence the indication for its completion in older adults. Deficiency Coenzyme Q10 can lead to weakness in the energy production process mitochondria, which is required eg regeneration, ie reduction of other oxidized antioxidants. A special group of antioxidants with a broad spectrum of activity, including used in the oxidation of drugs and toxins are known. biotiole ie compounds having the group-SH. The two most important This represented a fairly large group of glutathione and acid alpha-lipoic acid. Compounds of this group are able to regenerate each other, ie when one is consumed more rapidly, it is regenerated at the expense of others. At the end of the chain is always needed regeneration energy. Glutathione is poorly absorbed and its supplement does not specifically make sense. In its place, can be administered while the acid alpha-lipoic acid, which has the ability to regenerate glutathione. In larger doses, however, it is available on prescription only. It should be noted that glutathione is used to capture free radicals may be regeneration, that is, after oxidation by the radical may be back reduced to the active form. If it is used in the process oxidation of the toxin or drug, it is irretrievably lost to the cells. Cell must generate the entire molecule of glutathione from scratch. This shows that all the conditions associated need to rewrite the liver of larger quantities of toxins or drugs are associated with potential deficit and a greater threat biotioli free radicals.
