After proteins are broken down into amino acids in the gastrointestinal tract, they pass through the intestinal wall into the blood and via the portal vein to the liver.
The liver uses the amino acids to build up blood proteins – coupled to this, the amino acids reach all the body’s cells.
A constant renewal of body proteins takes place in the cells. Thus, proteins in the liver, pancreas and blood are renewed about every ten days, and in the skin and muscles about every 100 days. Amino acids are lost during protein renewal: Kidneys and liver break them down to carbon dioxide, water, ammonia and energy. Since ammonia is harmful to cells, it is bound to urea and excreted in the urine.
In the case of carbohydrate deficiency, the breakdown of body protein occurs in order to draw amino acids for glucose synthesis. It is therefore important that sufficient protein is present in the diet when carbohydrate intake is low (e.g. low carb).
Both fats and carbohydrates can be built up from the nitrogen-free part of the amino acids. Conversely, the organism can also form dispensable amino acids from fats and carbohydrates.
