Metabolism & Nutrition, Part 1: Crash Course A&P #36

Metabolism & Nutrition, Part 1: Crash Course A&P #36

Metabolism is a complex process that has a lot more going on than personal trainers and commercials might have you believe. Today we are exploring some of its key parts, including vital nutrients — such as water, vitamins, minerals, carbs, fats, and proteins — as well as how anabolic reactions build structures and require energy, while catabolic reactions tear things apart and release energy.

    I absoultely LOVE your videos, but while I love that you can speak this fast, and you clearly love yourself for speaking this fast, I geniunely have a headache so I put you on .80x speed and you almost talk normally. Now I typically put videos on 1.5x speed because they are boring and share next to zero information, but you can’t possibly expect anyone to follow a biology lecture at 1.5x speed just because you sound cool and have the capacity to speak this fastly. Fun fact, the reason we love using chalk and black board still in pure maths lectures is because it’s still the best way to digest information. The speed it takes you write something down is almost around the speed it takes the brain to process that new information, so slinding like a maniac through slides and speaking as if at gunpoint, is kind of against the purpose of education here, isn’t it ?!

    im curious of calories and what our bodies pick up of it. is there some difference in our digestive systems that doesnt absorb all of the available glucose? so example two people eat a 300 cal burger, could one of us have a less effecient system that let it out in our feces so that i would be consuming 200 cal but my friend with a better digestive system gets the whole 300?
    im particulary thinking of corn how it has a tendency to skip through our digestive system.. food doesnt always seem 100% digested… ie. i didnt absorb all of the calories that i ate.
    now could this affect how people are more skinny while eating more? is there some scientific papers on this topic?

  5. Suzanne Sylvia on May 11, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    So much information in this video.. I think I retained about 1/4 of it.. but it’s a start. I always wondered what metabolism actually was.

  6. Rumali Chamathka on May 11, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    this is so absolutely well done

  16. Legal Prudence on May 11, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    every single word was an ocean itself… no connection with science just came to know about nutrition .. it was awesome and satisfying

  17. Azul Seoane on May 11, 2022 at 7:27 pm

  19. Jillian on May 11, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    If you sneeze during this video, you just missed 40 bullet points.

  20. Sonia Moya on May 11, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Live this vídeos but this guy talks way to fast for all that information. I wish this video had a slow down feature like the audio books 😂 other than that I think is great!

  21. Madhusudan Jaju on May 11, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Awesome content 😄

  22. Jonathan Kardonski on May 11, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Umm, how about ketones to produce atp? And maybe excessive polyunsaturated fatty acids from plants are actually like a toxin bc our body don’t use them as much and they can’t be burned off without causing damage to the mitochondria. You’re very enjoyable Hank Green.

  23. Anas Maghraoui on May 11, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    i think you just uploaded a whole field of science to my brain, thank you sir!

  24. Arwen Tavares on May 11, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    This was incredibly helpful. Thank you so much, Crash Course!

    Jesus! I think he needs to catch a bus that’s why talks so fast 😀 it would be amazing video, but way too fast to translate and understand at the same time 😀

  27. Amelija Zaburaitė on May 11, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    too hard for me

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m an outsider looking in, but I’m wondering how you build or maintain, or even affect your metabolism? I’ve noticed mine is pretty effective and I wanted to know why. I was just a simple soul looking in on things I didn’t understand.

  37. Artin Albert on May 11, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Thank you using metric units instead of the crappy imperial ones.

  38. Azul Seoane on May 11, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    love the way he was body positive being "totally okay with" being 16% fat 🙂

  47. HealthFitnessPlanet on May 11, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    Boosting metabolism will help us lose weight 🙂

  48. Blank Name on May 11, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    man you figure if you can understand so many parts of the body you would evolve to have functioning eyes that dont require every one of your infographics to proudly sport glasses on the cartoon character. way to normalize blindness while promoting health & evolution. Maybe we were better off when we didnt understand ourselves and actually were manly. Now thats some food for thought! Life is short, you learned too much, and now you are a wet noodle.

  49. Azul Seoane on May 11, 2022 at 8:07 pm
