ADAPTATION – adaptability of human body to changed environmental conditions

ADAPTOGENES – preparations facilitating and accelerating processes of adaptation

AMINOACIDS – biologic molecules, forming various types of proteins and playing an important role in the functioning of human body. Proteins obtained with food within gastrointestinal tract are converted to amino acids, which penetrates to blood and are used by the human body for composition of personal specific proteins. A lot of antioxidants are capable of synthesizing directly in human body but some of them called irreplaceable are not capable of originating within human body and must be obtained with foodstuffs.

ANTIOXIDANTS - natural or synthetic materials, preventing or slowing down uncontrolled processes of oxidation of organic compounds.

ATP – adenosine triphosphoric acid – universal provider of energy of biochemical reactions

HYPOXIA – oxygen lack, reduced content of oxygen within different tissues and body parts. It occurs under insufficiency of oxygen in inspiratory air or under disorder of biochemical processes of cell respiration etc.

GLYCOGENS – the main reserve carbohydrate of human or animal. It accumulates within cells of liver and muscles. Under insufficiency of glucose glycogen affected by enzymes is split to glycose and access blood.

INTOXICATION – poisoning of human body with toxines

CARCINOGENES – materials significantly increasing possibility of originating of tumours. Tobacco smoke and also vehicle exhaust gas and some waste of industrial plants contain a great majority of carcinogenes.

DRUG DISEASE – allergic or other negative reaction of human body arising from usage of some remedial preparations and typical people with increased sensitivity towards some types of pharmaceuticals

LIPIDES – synonym for fats

MITOCHONDRION - organoids of animal or plant cells supporting reactions of energy providing.

MUTAGENES – materials capable of provoking disorder of genetic mechanism

PROTECTIVE FUNCTION – the function, facilitating mechanisms of protection. It is accepted to distinguish functions, protecting various parts of human body. For example, hepato - protective reaction (protects liver), cardio - protective reaction (protects heart), embrio - protective reaction (protects fetus) etc

RESISTANCE – standing of organism against negative impact

FREE RADICALS – highly active particles (atoms or groups of atoms). Intermediate metabolites of many chemical reactions.

STRESS – conditions of disorder of human body, occurred due to strong impact of accidental influence, bitterly changed environment and critical situation, resulting in processes of vegetative nerves system, endocrine and blood circulation systems, which prepare human body for “fighting or running”. If after stressful situation there is no discharge, surplus of tension may become the reason of many diseases.

SUCCINATES - salts of Amber Acid

TOXINES — poisonous materials, products of tissue disaggregation, vital activity of some microorganisms etc

ENZYMES - specific protein molecules, capable of accelerating biochemical reactions many times.
