Metabolites are metabolic products. They are formed in bodies, fabrics and cells as a result of process of a metabolism. Usually carry products of an intercellular and intracellular exchange which are subject to final disintegration and removal of their organism to this term. The majority of metabolites after penetration into blood take active part in humoral regulation – ensuring various processes of life activity in a human body through liquid by means of hormones. Metabolites can exert nonspecific and specific impact on physiological and biochemical processes.

Metabolic products can be primary, secondary, final (transformations are not exposed any more), intermediate (which are exposed to further biological transformations), excreted together with then, a stake, urine, expired air. Proteins, fats, carbohydrates and nucleic acids belong to primary metabolites. They are necessary for life activity and are available in all cells of a live organism. Secondary metabolites can meet in organism cells, not meet.

Metabolites participate in processes of dissimilation and assimilation. The last them them represents process of education of simple substances more difficult. Dissimilation is a destruction of various organic compounds with the subsequent receiving proteins, fats and carbohydrates in simple substances.
