Tissue Mobility and Function
The cells live within a structural framework of protein fibers called the matrix which they spend their lives building and maintaining. You can think of it as a scaffold around the cells that holds them all together, provides some degree of structural continuity, and is in a constant state of modification - being broken down and rebuilt in response to the mechanical forces the matrix is subject to. The matrix is made of a few different types of structural proteins, the most abundant of which is collagen.
Toxicity and Nutritional Status
What are nutrients? Nutrients are molecules required by our cells in order to carry out their normal day-to-day operations. Macronutrients are large complex molecules acquired in the diet. The 3 main categories of macronutrients are proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Our body needs a constant supply of macronutrients to generate energy and to provide the raw materials for building new cellular structures and tissues. Micronutrients are small molecules required by cells to facilitate chemical reactions. Vitamins and minerals are micronutrients.
