What do the Supercells in a Human Body do?

There are many super cells within our body’s that concentrate on different areas, here’s a breakdown…

Bone Cells – Bones are made from a mixture of matrix which makes them strong, whilst other cells help them grow and fix themselves. The bone building cells are called Osteoblasts, whilst the maintenance cells are called Osteocytes.

Epithelial Cells – Your outer skin, as well as the inside of your nose, mouth lungs and digestive tract is lined with these cells and they stop fluids or pathogens getting through to the tissue below.

Fat Cells – These are found in the layer under your skin and around other body organs. These cells resemble plastic bubbles filled with oil. These cells can increase or decrease depending on much energy rich fat they store.

Liver Cells – A key function of liver cells is to adjust the composition of your blood, removing toxins and regulating levels of sugar, fats and amino acids.

Muscle Cells
– These are very hard-working cells that convert chemical energy into movement. The skeletel muscles packed with thousands of long muscle cell fibres, can contract when set off by a nerve signal. They contract and pull our bones to make us move.

Nerve Cells – These cells are hard at work in the brain and nervous system and they collect and send out information through tiny electrical impulses. Branches on the cell body are called Dendrites and they bring data to the cell, while the Axons take it away.

Photoreceptor Cells
– There are two types of cells in the eyes, Rods are the sensitive to light, dark shapes and movement, whilst Cones help you see colour. Special pigments in the cells convert light into nerve impulses when they reach the brain and consequently turns them into pictures.

All these different super cells have important powers and all work well together within our bodies.
