The body is a well oiled machine when in optimal health. In order to maintain this health the body has the ability to achieve homeostasis. Many chemical reactions take place in the body daily to obtain this health as well. In relation to metabolism name each type of metabolism while giving a brief explanation and example of each.
Metabolism can be broken down into two essential types: anabolism and catabolism. Anabolism is the construction of molecules from smaller units into larger units. An example of this would be gluconeogenesis. Catabolism is the process of breaking down molecules into smaller units. An example would be the breakdown of adipose tissue for fatty acids.
