Lipid Metabolism

Lipids make up the final big category of metabolism, in addition to carbohydrates and amino acids. Lipids are not only an efficient source of energy but also important for cell structure and signalling hormones Lipid metabolism is often considered as the digestion and absorption process of dietary fat; however, there are two sources of fats that organisms can use to obtain energy: from consumed dietary fats and from stored fat Digestion is the first step of  lipid metabolism, and it is the process of breaking the triglycerides down into smaller monoglyceride units with the help of lipase enzymes. Digestion of fats begins in the mouth through chemical digestion by lingual lipase.
