VITAMINS & MINERALS MARKERS
Globulins are a family of proteins that are not soluble in water but do dissolve in dilute salt solutions. Globulins are made by both the liver and the immune system and make up a large proportion of blood serum protein.
Proteins are essential building blocks of all cells and tissues. These proteins are needed for our overall health as well as growth and development. There are two types of serum protein, albumin and globulins. Different proteins make up the globulin family and many bind with haemoglobin in the blood while some are involved in the transportation of metals and others are part of the immune system’s response to fighting infection.
Globulin levels can rise in response to some infections and diseases. Equally, it can reduce because of some conditions, illnesses and deficiencies.
