Did you know that each biomolecule is an important essential to maintain homeostasis? Biomolecules are in every single living organism, even you and me. In this essay I will inform you on how each biomolecule helps us maintain homeostasis. What is homeostasis? Homeostasis refers to the ability of the body to maintain a stable internal environment despite changes in external conditions. The stability, or balance, that is attained is called a dynamic equilibrium; that is, as changes occur, the body works to maintain relatively uniform conditions. What are carbohydrates? Carbohydrates are the body's main source of fuel, needed for physical activity, brain function and operation of the organs. All the cells and tissues in your body need carbs, and they are also important for intestinal health and waste elimination. Homeostasis refers to maintaining conditions in a narrow range. Carbohydrate or sugars is the primary source of energy for our body. If sugars are not available readily in our diet body turns to other critical macromolecules for survival and this is usually not good for body's homeostasis. The human body has reflexes to regulate homeostatic elements such as heat, water. For example: wanting to be in shade if you are hot. What are lipids? Their main…show more content…
The sequence of amino acids determines each protein's unique 3-dimensional structure and its specific function. Antibodies bind to specific foreign particles, such as viruses and bacteria, to help protect the body. Enzymes carry out almost all of the thousands of chemical reactions that take place in cells. Proteins do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure of the cell, the function of the cell, and the regulation of the body’s tissues and organs in the cell. They are made of groups called amino acids.Proteins have a large variety of different shapes and sizes. If the shape changes, it becomes a new protein. Protein is found in your muscles and the cell
