What is protein & why do we need it!?
Protein is an important component of every cell in the body. Hair and nails are mostly made of protein. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals.
Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood.
Along with fat and carbohydrates, protein is a "macronutrient," meaning that the body needs relatively large amounts of it".
Safe to say, protein is important for everyone.
Not only "scary" body builders.
It helps with fat loss due to the high thermic effect, helps you feel fuller for longer, helps repair broken or damaged cells and tissue.
So if you're injured, you need extra protein to help with the healing process.
Extra protein is not just for people who want to build muscle. It's for anyone who takes part in some sort of physical activity.
• All sports
Even if you don't take part in intense exercise, you still need protein to help preserve and rebuild muscle, and cells in your body.
Different foods contain different amounts and different combinations of amino acids (the building blocks of proteins). Protein from animal sources (meat, fish, eggs and dairy products) contain the full range of essential amino acids needed by the body.
However, vegans and vegetarians can get all the amino acids they need by combining different plant sources of protein, like pulses, cereals and of course our very own Vegain!
Think of muscle as your suit of armour. It helps protect you. The more you have, the harder you are to kill.
So our advice is to get in the gym and build new muscle!
You'll feel better, move better and look better!
