Nutrition (1)- 2012

Copper (Cu)

It is essential in all higher plants and animals. Copper is a mineral available in traceable amounts throughout the body incorporated into organic complexes, such as enzymes involved in brain function and the circulatory system. It is also extremely important for the development of the long bones, like the femur. Copper deficiency results in thin bones that fracture easily. Copper is an oxidant, yet in the body it has an antioxidant function by being a co-factor in the enzyme superoxide dismutase (S.O.D.). This enzyme protects the cells from the damage caused by free radicals and peroxides. Copper is also part of the protein, ceruloplasmin, found in the blood plasma. Ceruloplasmin regulates the level of certain hormones in the blood and is also required for the formation of red blood cells. Additionally, copper plays a part in energy production, melanin formation and fatty acid oxidation. Copper deficiency increases the risk of heart and circulatory problems, especially if there is also a selenium deficiency. Copper deficiency can also contribute to anaemia, bone diseases, nervous system disturbance and hair loss. In children, growth is inhibited and the bones may become brittle.

Nickel (Ni)

Nickel is found in highest concentrations in lung, kidney and some hormone-producing tissues.

Nickel deficiency has been linked to low blood glucose levels, abnormal bone growth, poor absorption of ferric iron, and altered metabolism of calcium, vitamin B-12 and energy nutrients.

缺乏铜会引起瘦骨容易折断。铜虽是一个氧化剂,然而,它在体内和 抗氧化物岐化酶 (S.O.D.)则扮演抗氧的角色 。 抗氧化物岐化酶保护细胞被自由基和过氧化氢氧化。铜也是蛋白质中的一部分。铜也在能源生产、黑色素形成和氧化脂肪酸方面发挥了功用。缺乏铜会增加心脏和循环系统问题风险的,尤其是同时也缺乏硒。缺乏铜会促进贫血、骨骼疾病、神经系统紊乱和脱发。

Blood pressure - right or wrong it is still unknown

The following article is from Healthday News. Where to we go from here ? Higher Rate of Morning Heart Attacks Not Due to Blood Pressure: Study ShareretweetEmailPrint– Mon Apr 11, 7:08 pm ET MONDAY, April 11 (HealthDay News) -- Normal daily fluctuations in blood pressure aren't linked with the well-documented fact that people are more likely to suffer a heart attack or stroke in the morning, a new study shows. It included 28 people without high blood pressure who underwent three types of sleep/wake cycle experiments designed to assess the connection between the internal body clock and the daily rise and fall in blood pressure. In all three experiments, the volunteers showed an internal daily blood pressure variation with a peak at about 9 p.m. and the lowest blood pressure occurring in the late morning. The researchers said the surprising finding that blood pressure is lowest in the morning means it's unlikely that the internal blood pressure cycle is connected to the increased risk of heart attack and stroke in the morning. The study was published April 7 in the journal Circulation. "We used three complementary experimental protocols and three different groups and found essentially the same results. That means we're dealing with something very robust," lead author Steven A. Shea, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, said in a journal news release.

Jing Luo, Negative Energy & Nutrients (21)

Zinc (Zn) It is an essential mineral which is found in almost every cell in the body and is contained within more than 200 enzymes and substances needed for biochemical reaction. Zinc is important for a healthy immune system, for healing cuts and wounds, and for maintaining the sense of taste and smell. Nearly 100 different enzymes depend on zinc for their ability to catalyze a vital chemical reaction. Zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence. The symptoms of severe zinc deficiency include the slowing or cessation of growth and development, delayed sexual maturation, characteristic skin rashes, chronic and severe diarrhoea, immune system deficiencies, impaired wound healing, diminished appetite, impaired taste sensation, night blindness, swelling and clouding of the cornea, and behavioural disturbances.
