Question and answer
what are the advantages of consumption of Gatorade sports drink?
Photo Credit Stockbyte/Stockbyte/Getty Images Gatorade is a brand name commonly associated with athletes and sports of all kinds. [ However, other sports drinks have entered the market over the years, giving Gatorade some healthy competition, and choosing what sports drink to consume has become confusing. Although Gatorade can help you to effectively hydrate and replenish your energy, there is
little evidence to suggest that it is more effective than a sports drink with similar ingredients. However, subjective elements, such as taste, might be considered an advantage. Read more: ]

Of the 20 amino acids relevant to the human body, how many are considered essential
Weegy: Of the 22 standard amino acids, 9 are called essential amino acids because the human body cannot synthesize them from other compounds at the level needed for normal growth, so they must be obtained from food. [ In addition, cysteine, taurine, tyrosine, and arginine are semiessential amino-acids in children, because the metabolic pathways that synthesize these amino acids are not fully developed. ] (More)

What exactly is the skeleton system and how does it function?
Weegy: The skeletal system is made up of both fused and individual bones; these bones are further supported by ligaments, tendons, muscles and cartilage. [ The skeletal system is essentially a scaffold which supports the body's organs, anchors the muscles, and offers additional protection to internal organs like the brain and the heart. An adult's skeleton makes up about 30-40% of a person's body weight; around half of this total weight is water. The body's fused bones include the bones of the cranium and the pelvis: these bones are separated at birth, so that newborns have more than 300 bones; as a person ages they grow together and fuse into a single large mass, leaving adults with only about 206 bones. Most of the individual and fused bones are directly connected to one another, but not all of them: three bones in each middle ear (the ossicles) are only connected to each other (not to any other bones in skeletal system) and the hyoid bone, the point of attachment for the tongue, is not connected to any other bones in the body. Instead, it is completely supported by the muscles and ligaments of the neck. There are two parts to the skeletal system: the axial skeleton and the appendicular skeleton. The axial skeleton has 80 bones, and is made up of the bones of the head, the ribs, and the vertebral column. The appendicular skeleton has 126 bones and includes the bones of the upper and lower limbs and the pelvic and pectoral girdles. The appendicular skeleton's function is to make locomotion possible and to protect the body's major internal organs (aside from those protected by the axial skeleton). The skeleton has several functions apart from support and protection: the joints permit movement, the bone marrow produces red and white blood cells, bone cells release osteocalcin, a hormone which helps regulate blood sugar and fat deposition, and the skeletal cell matrix stores calcium (and is involved in metabolizing calcium), and bone marrow stores some iron (as ...

What is the difference of over the counter dietary supplements and perscription supplements
Weegy: Over the counter supplements are not at strong or effective as the ones that require a prescription. Think of it like a pain killer. Tylenol works, but Vicodin is far more effective, but it's stronger so it requires a prescription. (More)

One difference between prescription and over-the-counter medicines is access. Only qualified and licensed medical professionals can order prescription medicines for their patients, and only qualified pharmacists can fill those orders.

What is the difference of over the counter dietary supplements and perscription supplements
Weegy: Some people experiment with prescription drugs because they think they will help them have more fun, lose weight, fit in, and even study more effectively. [ [ Prescription drugs can be easier to get than street drugs: Family members or friends may have them. But prescription drugs are also sometimes sold on the street like other illegal drugs. ] Many people take dietary supplements in an effort to be well and stay healthy. With so many dietary supplements available and so many claims made about their health benefits, how can a consumer decide what's safe and effective? This fact sheet provides a general overview of dietary supplements, discusses safety considerations, and suggests sources for additional information. Federal regulations for dietary supplements are very different from those for prescription and over-the-counter drugs. For example, a dietary supplement manufacturer does not have to prove a product's safety and effectiveness before it is marketed. If you are thinking about using a dietary supplement, first get information on it from reliable sources. Keep in mind that dietary supplements may interact with medications or other dietary supplements and may contain ingredients not listed on the label. Tell your health care providers about any complementary and alternative practices you use, including dietary supplements. Give them a full picture of what you do to manage your health. This will help ensure coordinated and safe care. read more: ] (More)
