The Power of Protein

The Power of Protein

If you’re like most people, you probably already know protein is important, but do you understand how or why? One of the essential building blocks for any healthy body, protein is a powerful substance found in many foods, such as meat, plants, grains, dairy products, vitamins and legumes. It’s also indispensable to your health.

 

Consider the following facts:

 

  • There are at least 10,000 proteins at work in your body, all of which need to be refueled constantly.
  • Proteins are made of 20 or so amino acids, and the body doesn’t store amino acids the way it does fat or carbohydrates — it needs a fresh supply every day.
  • Not all proteins are created equal.
  • The best way to get proper protein is to pick from wide and varied sources.
  • Eating more protein has been linked with better weight loss and diet maintenance.
  • Getting proper protein in your diet offers all kinds of benefits, from better muscle development to improved sleep.
