Introduction

P4 Pasterkamp In this assignment I am going to write about the cardiovascular and digestive system?s relation with metabolism energy in the body. In this assignment I have to explain and outline the physiology of two systems of the body, using links from energy metabolism, discussing and stating the functions and roles of energy in the body. In this assignment I will be advising a 45 year old male, who?s slightly ?over weight?. Introduction to Energy Energy is the chemicals which cause chemical reactions and in able the body to react physically. Energy is found in all types of food, that we consume, but some contain more energy resources than others such as; glucose is amongst many sources of energy which is found in the body, glucose release energy. Energy is found in carbohydrates? like paste, fruit, wheat grains and dairy milk that is organic and comes straight from farm animals that have a significant amount of carbohydrates. Glucose, carbohydrates and proteins are transported around the body when food is consumed. Food is consumed and energy is formed and is used for different body uses; energy cannot be lost or destroyed in the body. ...read more.

It is important to include protein into the diet, like foods like meat, fish and nuts .Proteins are also digested in the digestive system and turned into amino acids or glucose, which are then sent to the liver. The fat in our body is usually produced or found in foods like meat, cakes and fast food. The energy that?s found in these foods is a big and important source of energy. Molecules are changed into acids and glucose from the fat of the consumed food. The fat from the food is digested and dissolved first in the digestive system in the stomach and turned into water through the intestines. The fat molecules produce acids breaks down all the molecules into smaller ones. In conclusion there is a link between the digestive system and the energy that is produced from the food we consume it is what provides all the energy our body needs. The All the energy the body needs and the digestive system helps to break the food down for it to turn into different energy. Along with the digestive system it includes three main steps of food and energy metabolism. ...read more.

Conclusion

The category of fat foods is a big and rich source of energy. Fats molecules are transformed into acids and glucose. Fat food are firstly dissolved and digested in the stomach and dissolved as water through the intestines. The fat food then produces acids as it breaks the big molecules into smaller ones Overall the link between the digestive system and energy is that foods we consume include all the energy the body needs and the digestive system helps to break the food down for it to turn into different energy. Along with the digestive system it includes three main steps of food and energy metabolism. First is the breaking down of the food including all the organs of the digestive system (Mouth, liver, Stomach, Pancreas, Large intestines, Rectum, Small intestines), the transformation of food molecules into energy and lastly the different ways energy is used for the body. Athlete is someone who has a profession in sports and is really passionate and good about physical movement and exercise. This means the blood pressure of an athlete must be low according to an athlete diet and daily exercise and workout incomprehensible. An athlete?s diet has to be very nutritious and healthy by eating a variety of foods, they must gain the full amount of carbohydrate and proteins in their body of ATP energy. Overall all the food ...read more.

    Catabolism is the breakdown of large molecules into small molecules. It's opposite process in anabolism, the combination of small molecules into large molecules. These two cellular chemical reactions are together called metabolism. Cells use anabolic reactions to synthesize enzymes, hormones, sugars and others molecules needed to sustain them, grow and reproduce.

    These factors are very much similar to that of diffusion. For instance, the amount of carrier proteins which are available will influence the movement of materials into and out of cells as if there are not enough protein carriers then glucose molecules will not be able to diffuse through the membrane very quickly, slowing the process down.

    The right and left atria receive the blood entering the heart. A wall called the intertribal septum divides the atria, and they're separated from the ventricles by the atrioventricular valves. The tricuspid valve separates the right atrium from the right ventricle, and the mitral valve separates the left atrium and the left ventricle.
