Energy Metabolism In The Liver

Go to: Introduction The liver is a key metabolic organ which governs body energy metabolism. It acts as a hub to metabolically connect to various tissues, including skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. Food is digested in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, and glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids are absorbed into the bloodstream and transported to the liver through the portal vein circulation system. In the postprandial state, glucose is condensed into glycogen and/or converted into fatty acids or amino acids in the liver. In hepatocytes, free fatty acids are esterified with glycerol-3-phosphate to generate triacylglycerol (TAG). TAG is stored in lipid droplets in hepatocytes or secreted into the circulation as very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) particles. Amino acids are metabolized to provide energy or used to synthesize proteins, glucose, and/or other bioactive molecules. In the fasted state or during exercise, fuel substrates (e.g. glucose and TAG) are released from the liver into the circulation and metabolized by muscle, adipose tissue, and other extrahepatic tissues. Adipose tissue produces and releases nonesterified fatty acids (NEFAs) and glycerol via lipolysis. Muscle bre Continue reading >>

    I am desperate for some help and direction in a severally fragmented state. I have had chronic insomnia for 14 years, last 7 have been 4 hour average with many nights of 2-3 hours. Staying asleep has always been the bigger problem. Falling asleep has been manageable via reading and good sleep hygeniene, but only works maybe 85% of the time.
    I went on an Autoimmune Paleo diet several weeks ago, which is paleo diet minus eggs, nuts, seeds. Diet appeared to be going well but after 2 weeks something weird happened....I started to doze off and experienced a surge of energy, like a switch, essentially, and I was up….. for the entire week. After 4 completely sleepless nights, I slept lightly for several hours. Then it restarted and the next night I was up again. There is no sleep pressure and night feels like day and vice versa. After 3 sleepless nights I jumped ship with the diet and began eating a high carb diet again.
    Other symptoms during this period: head sweating at night (hyperhidrosis) with my head breaking out in sweat at night. I’ll start to dooze off, but will wake immediately up and my forehead will be leaking.
    Lack of appetite. Slight burning sensation on my skin. Frequent urination at times. The only consistent symptoms are the night sweats and the complete insomnia.
    If you research complete insomnia you come across morvan’s syndrome (autoimmune) and fatal famial insomnia (genetic and sporadic variants) and people with severally damaged thalamus.
    I had a concussion 2.5 years ago and suspect it likely plays a role here.
    I have no idea if what I have done is reversible or not.
    What should I do here? I have no medical insurance, I’m trying to get temporary insurance.
    My blood sugar is rising. Fasting is around 110. Typically 80-90.
    Theory- the diet I was on, had certain foods: sardines, turkey, bone broth, I now know are very high in glutamates. The ketogenic diet is said to better balance excess glutamates: http://www.ncbi.nlm....les/PMC2367001/
    Should this be my next step, what should I do?
    I am trying to put together a healthy brain stack.

    Abolish any of these diets immediately.
    Have You enough money to buy You sleeping pills ?
    Do You asked allready at the Pharmacy for something ?
    If for any reason not, then:
    - Buy Doxylamine and/or Mitrazepine.
    -Then buy something with Melissa Lemon Balm like: Nature's Way Melissa Lemon Balm Capsules.
    Dont matter what manufacturer aslong its an extract and not just a weak herbal powder.
    Some Lemon Blam prdoucts contain also Melatonine.
    Which is even better.
    - Optionally a Kava kava product like:
    Natural Balance Kava Kava Root Extract, 60-Count
    - For the case that You will get a desensitation of the gaba receptors in the following nights through the gabaergics,
    Buy simple Aminoacids which contains vitamins like:
    Twinlab Amino Fuel 1000 Body Building Amino Acids
    Mitrazepin can be a bitch, so dont buy something like a orodispersible tablet.
    Look instead for something that is slow releasing !
    Otherwise You could/maybe stay awake.
    Therefore, ask the pharmacy for slow releasing or maybe coated tablets ?.
    They must know what fromula releases it slower
    Take then right away 30mg or 45mg respectively.
    Or just the whole tablet and maybe one of the Lemonbalm (200mg)
    For safety reasons, Wait then 1.30 hours.
    If this isnt sufficent, then take more of the the gaba and other stuff. but of course not to much !
    So rather step by step, or Hour by Hour
    No one wants that You stop to breathing while sleep or what else.. dunno
    It would be good if You are not sleeping alone, so somebody can watching You
    Btw: the Maximum of Mitrazepine is officially 45mg, but regarding a abstract, mine and medievils experience is sometimes 90mg, for a healthy person, Ok.
    Doxylamine is also ok, but the onset is slower.
    Dont combine Mitrazepine with Doxylamine this is irresponsible and not needed.
    The Dosage for Doxylamine is 50mg.
    regarding this drug forum You can dose it to 100 mg
    But I would rather stick with Mitrazepine, even if its a adrenergic a2 antagonist.
    - This comes usually with the time and not immediately
    - From my view, the effectivity, so the antihistamine blocking effect is stronger
    Please notice me if it worked or if You have any questions

    By how much did you increase your protein intake? Ammonia may be out of whack from increased glutamine metabolism and protein digestion.
    See early symptoms here: http://www.nlm.nih.g...icle/000302.htm
    See also ammonia homeostasis here:
    Low carbs also means less serotonin and typically more dopamine, norepinephrine, and adrenaline.
    I had a hell of a time on low carb, but if my doc is right and I have an autoimmune thing going on, I guess I'll be joining you on that diet...
    Anyway these are just my guesses, either ammonia or serotonin/dopamine imbalance. I don't think you have to worry about the conditions you have in bold. You could also add some P5P to increase GABA synthesis, though it's not always as harmless as everyone says: http://www.longecity...ity-from-p-5-p/
    Hope you get some good sleep. Insomnia blows goats in hell.

In this video I discuss what are amino acids, what are amino acids made of, and what do amino acids do in the body. I also cover what are peptide bonds, polypeptide chains, how amino acids form proteins, some functions of amino acids, and what are amino acids used to build. Transcript We are going to start by looking at the molecular structure of a typical amino acid, dont worry, I am going to make it easy to understand. The basic structure of amino acids is that they consist of a carboxyl group, a lone hydrogen atom, an amino group, and a side chain, which is often referred to as an R-group. The formation of the side chain is what makes amino acids different from one another. As you can see in this diagram, these 4 are all connected to a carbon atom, which is referred to as the alpha carbon. Not every amino acid follows this exact structure, but, most do. On the screen I have 3 different amino acids, lysine, tryptophan, and leucine. You can see that each has a carboxyl group, an alpha carbon, a amino group, and an R-group that is different from each other. There are 23 total amino acids that are proteinogenic. Proteinogenic amino acids are precursors to proteins, which means they are compounds that participate in a chemical reaction to produce another compound. Of these 23 amino acids, 20 of them are called standard amino acids, and the other 3 are non-standard amino acids. These are listed on the screen. In this video we are going to focus on the standard amino acids, as they are what make up proteins. These amino acids can be classified many different ways, we are going to classify them in a basic nutritional way. Essential and nonessential. Essential amino acids cannot be made by the body, so, they must come from foods we eat. Nonessential amino acids are amino acids that our bodies can produce even if we dont get them from the food we eat. There is a subgroup of nonessential amino acids that are considered to be conditional amino acids. The list of conditional amino acids is not definitive. For instance, in times of illness or stress, there are certain amino acids the body cant produce sufficiently, and children's bodys havent developed the ability to produce certain amino acids yet. There are 9 essential and 11 nonessential amino acids, ive listed them on the screen. So, how do amino acids form proteins? Proteins are built from the 20 standard amino acids. Well, the first thing that happens is that 2 amino acids come together to form a peptide bond. A peptide bond is when the carboxyl group of one amino acid bonds with the amino group of another amino acid, as you can see here. If you notice 2 hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom have been removed from the peptide bonding process. So, the peptide bonding results in the release of a water moleculeh20. But, we are not finished. More amino acids can link in, and form what is called a polypeptide chain. Some proteins are single polypeptide chains, and other proteins have polypeptide chains linked together. Not all protein contains all 20 of the standard amino acids. Not all protein contains all 20 of the standard amino acids. Proteins are often labeled as complete or incomplete protein. A Complete protein is a protein source that contains a sufficient quantity of all 9 of the essential amino acids that we discussed earlier. An incomplete protein does not contain a sufficient quantity of all 9 of the essential amino acids. Complete protein foods includeanimal foods such as red meat, poultry, pork and fish. Eggs and dairy products such as cows milk, yogurt, and cheese. Plant foods such as soy products, black beans, kidney beans, pumpkin seeds, quinoa, pistachios, just to name a few. You can also combine incomplete protein foods to create a complete protein meal. Amino acids also make up most enzymes. These Enzymes are proteins, so they are made by linking amino acids together in a specific and unique order. This chain of amino acids then forms a unique shape that allows the enzyme created to serve a single specific purpose. Enzymes function as catalysts, which means that they speed up the rate at which metabolic processed and reactions occur. Amino acids can also be metabolized for energy. Some hormones like epinephrine, also known as adrenaline, are amino acid derived. Some neurotransmitters like serotonin are derived from amino acids. The amino acid arginine is a precursor of nitric oxide, which helps regulate blood pressure, improves sleep quality and increases endurance and strength. Glutathione, which is a powerful antioxidant is formed from amino acids.

Ammonia enters the liver and is converted to urea which goes to the kidneys for removal. After deamination, what must happen to the amino acid before it can be used for energy? The remaining carbon skeleton can be broken down to produce ATP or used to make glucose or fatty acids. It can enter at different points of the citric acid cycle, and then enters electron transport chain Breaking up amino acids is metabolically expensive. What does this mean? It takes up more energy to break these down than fat or carbs What happens to body proteins when energy Continue reading >>

    Hi guys this may be tmi but I just want to see what I can do to fix it or what I'm doing wrong. I'm closing out my 3rd week on this diet and the last couple of days I've had the real strong urine smell from ketosis and rash like symptoms. Am I not drinking enough water potentially? Or eating too much protein potentially? I'm not feeling too well. I feel a bit weighed down with acid. Any advice would be appreciated.

  2. Art3mis

    the urine smell will pass (or maybe i do not notice it as much YEEP!)....the rash i can not speak to, however, could be just the stress your body is going through while it adjusts, OR it could be your sensitive to something in the IP packets, OR it could be not related at all.
    a few questions...
    how much water are you drinking?
    where is the rash? all over, certain places? does anything make it go away, or is it always there?
    have you ever had your Blood sugar tested? if so, how long ago?
    describe the "not feeling too well"....while your body is adjusting you will feel like poop but its kinda certain symptoms...so what are yours?

You need to be able to identify these four molecules if they are presented to you. Recognize the amino acid by the presence of nitrogen and the 'R' (variable) group. The fatty acids can have multiple [CH2] groups so look for it written in this shorthand way, or with the CH2's written out in full. The ribose and glucose (both carbohydrate monomers, or monosaccharides) can be distinguished because the ribose only has 5 carbon atoms whereas the glucose has 6 carbon atoms.

Can Amino Acids Be Used By The Body To Make Glucose & Fatty Acids?

Amino acids are nitrogen-containing molecules that are the building blocks of all proteins in food and in the body. They can be used as energy, yielding about 4 calories per gram, but their primary purpose is the synthesis and maintenance of body proteins including, but not limited to, muscle mass. Video of the Day During normal protein metabolism, a certain number of amino acids are pushed aside each day. When these amino acids are disproportionate to other amino acids for the synthesis of new protein, your liver and kidneys dispose of the nitrogen as urea, and the rest of the molecule is used as energy in a variety of ways. Then certain amino acids -- minus their nitrogen -- can enter the citric acid cycle -- the biochemical pathway that converts food into energy. Others can be converted to glucose or fat. This process may be enhanced when you take in more protein than you need. Your body relies on a continuous supply of glucose and fatty acids for energy for physical activity and cellular needs during rest. When you exercise, your body relies still more on glucose because fat is slower to metabolize. The higher your exercise intensity is, the more your body requires quicker-burn Continue reading >>

    I'm a quite slender person except when it comes to my belly - if I don't suck it in, it looks like I'm pregnant (lol.) I suspect it expanded when I was taking some medications that made me gain weight.
    So my question is - will adopting the keto diet help lose the bulging fat there? Or will I still have to work out etc to get rid of this blubber? I understand keto doesn't target a specific part of the body, but still wondering if it could help.
    And I'm not talking about getting abs or a perfectly toned stomach, just getting the fat down.
    Thanks for your help if you can answer my nooby question.

    Belly fat on both genders is typically stubborn fat so it is usually the last to go.
    If you have a beer belly gut, that will go first up to a point.
    You don't need to work out. Abs are 90% made in the kitchen.
    But getting your belly fat down means getting all your other fat down first.
    Keto will do this.
