The specific methods by which carbohydrates and glucose are utilized and stored in the body are discussed in greater detail in Chapters 6 and 14. Inorganic Salts Lipids Inorganic salts are compounds that break apart in water to release either positively or negatively charged atoms or molecules called ions. Ions are designated by placing a plus sign (positive charge) or minus sign (negative charge) after their molecular symbol, as shown in the following examples: sodium (Na+), calcium (Ca2+), Like carbohydrates, lipids are a group of organic compounds made of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms, but they occur in different ratios and arrangements.

Carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids are the organic substances that make up all cells and tissues in the body. Water (H2O) represents about 60% of overall body weight and is vital to all physiologic processes. It is the medium for most chemical exchanges between cells and tissues and the primary component of all body fluids, including the fluid inside the cells. This makes water an essential compound for the transportation of nutrients, wastes, and other byproducts formed during the millions of chemical reactions that take place throughout the body.

The midpoint of the pH scale (7) designates a neutral pH substance having equal + − numbers of H and OH . Water is the primary example of a neutral substance. Any substance with a pH value below 7 is acidic (containing large numbers of hydrogen ions) while those with measurements above 7 are basic or alkaline. 45. This homeostatic range is ensured via numerous mechanisms that constantly assess and make adjustments to maintain the pH balance within the body.
