Two of the nutrients our body's need the most is water and proteins. Water is a crucial nutrient needed to carry oxygen and nutrients to the blood cells, tissues, and molecules in our bodies.Our bodies are mostly made of 50 to 60 percent of water. Unlike food, If you were to go a few days without water you would most likely die of dehydration. Protein is another well needed nutrient for out bodies. Protein is great for repairing bone, muscle, skin, and blood cells. This is why protein is also known as "body builders." It can also help prevent diseases from many enzymes. Protein is a source of energy to our blood cells by transporting Iron, oxygen, and nutrients. In order for our proteins to be complete the must be in amounts that are well proportioned. They also must be in a digestible form. Many body functions and survival is done with the right amount of proteins.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
