Life is a way of existence of protein bodies
In the era of fast food, short audio messages, instant flights and fast love, amino acids occupy a special place. “What is the connection?” The attentive reader will ask. The key word is speed.
Carbohydrate food, quick snacks and, as a result, protein deficiencies.
Amino acid debt can be replenished by various methods, and this is always an integrated approach.
In 2009, Elena Rumyantseva proposed the term “amino acid replacement therapy”, which has historically been applied to the Jalupro group of drugs. Did we know then that in 2019 this will be so urgent and urgently needed1.
Let’s understand the definitions: what are amino acids, and how are they classified?
Amino acids. General information, or classics of the genre
Amino acids are chemical compounds that are recognized as vital elements of protein molecules. A protein molecule is built from one hundred or more amino acid residues covalently linked into polymer chains. There are five million proteins in the human body, and not one of the human proteins is identical with the protein of any other living organism. Despite such a variety of protein structures, only 22 amino acids are needed for their construction .
Essential Amino Acids
In humans, nine amino acids are recognized as indispensable because the body is unable to synthesize them, and under normal conditions it is necessary that they are present in the diet
Non-Essential Amino Acids
The human body is able to synthesize. Essential amino acids differ in different species, since different metabolic variants are able to provide the synthesis of different substances
Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Methionine, Histidine, Valine and Phenylalanine
Alanine, arginine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamic acid, glutamine, glycine, orginin, citrulline, proline, serine, taurine and tyrosine
The biological functions of proteins are very diverse. They perform catalytic, regulatory, structural, motor, transport, protective, spare and other functions. They are components of muscles, tendons, organs, glands, skin, hair and nails.
An exceptional property of a protein is the self-organization of the structure, that is, the ability to spontaneously create a specific structure peculiar only to a given protein. In order for the body to be able to efficiently use and synthesize protein, all essential amino acids must be present in the required proportion. Even the temporary absence of one essential amino acid can adversely affect protein synthesis. With a decrease in the amount of any essential amino acid or its absence, the efficiency of all the others is proportionally reduced.
What is amino acid replacement therapy?
Amino acid replacement therapy (AZT) is a method that has recently gained popularity in dermatocosmetology. Directly to this type of therapy is the introduction of the amino acid composition into the middle layers of the skin. Indirectly, the function of amino acid replacement therapy takes on the method of plasma therapy (PRP).
Goal? Synthesis of the desired collagen. Recently, calls have been made from all information sources to synthesize new collagen, both heavy artillery methods, read, high-tech devices with clinically proven effectiveness, and various drugs, “sellers of youth” are not shy about marketing moves from the series “This serum increases synthesis a billion percent collagen ”…
How can a cosmetologist and his patient figure out where a dream ends and reality begins? The answer is to study scientific articles.
How does collagen synthesis work?
The skin consists of several layers: the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous fat.
AZT and PRP therapies are mainly aimed at the dermis, which is responsible for the thickness and elasticity of the skin; a huge number of parallel processes of synthesis and decay occur in the dermis. It is better to try to influence this activity by understanding the pathogenetic mechanisms that occur in the skin.
The main component of the dermis is collagen, an organic compound from the group of fibrillar proteins. The papillary layer of the dermis is formed by smaller bundles of collagen fibers, a large number of cells predominate in it (fibroblasts, fibrocytes, mast cells, T-lymphocytes), while the reticular layer is characterized by larger bundles that form a characteristic network that provides skin strength, hence the name of the layer is mesh.
The main protein of the dermis
Fibers intertwined in a right-handed spiral consisting of three polypeptide chains
Produced by fibroblasts and cleaved by collagenase
Provides skin firmness and elasticity
Fibroblasts are the main cells of the dermis that produce both collagen and other proteins and some enzymes. At different periods of a person’s life, the dermis undergoes changes.
