WHY LACK OF PROTEIN IS AMONG THE TOP REASONS FOR HEALTH CHALLENGES?

If you look at a normal Indian’s thali, you would see lots of carbs, especially refined carbs and unhealthy fat with no or very little protein. According to a 2017 survey, above 90% of people are unaware of daily requirement of protein.  We don’t store protein like we store carbohydrates & fat. We are constantly breaking down and building up new proteins. That’s why we need to get enough protein from our diet to fulfill our daily requirements. India has the lowest average protein consumption as compared to other Asian and western countries.

Proteins are broken down into amino acids. There are mainly 2 types of amino acids.

  1. Essential amino acids: Our body can’t produce them and need to be taken from our food or supplements.
  2. Non-essential amino acids: Our body can make these amino acids and so we don’t need to get them from food.

Here are some of the symptoms of having lack of protein in diet:

  • Constant craving for food and feeling hungry often
  • Brittle bones and nails
  • Severe hair fall
  • Less muscle mass and strength
  • Slow healing of wounds
  • Unhealthy weight gain
  • Reduces metabolism
  • Excess of fat

Why do we need to rely on protein supplements?

An average person needs around 0.8 g to 1 g protein per kg of body weight. So, if you are 80 kg, you need around 80 g of protein in a day. That’s difficult to get from food, especially if you are a vegetarian.

As I mentioned, it is difficult to get required protein from food, you need to take protein supplements to make sure you can reap above mentioned benefits. I have been personally taking it from the last 6 years and have got amazing results in my body including incredible strength, stamina and energy.

That’s the reason I launched this unique protein powder where it has all the natural ingredients, no maltodextrin, no sucralose, no GMO or no artificial flavours. I wanted to give as natural and nutritious product as I could and I am happy to have succeeded in that.

How can protein ensure optimum health?

  1. Increase muscle mass and strength
    Protein has an important role in the repair and growth of muscles. I strongly believe that the major lifestyle disorders have one major root cause in common: less muscles and more fat in the body. When you have enough protein in diet and workout regularly, you can’t help but build muscles in the body and lose fat. When you do that, no matter what health challenges you are facing, diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, PCOD, thyroid or any lifestyle issue, that can be easily managed or even reversed.
  2. Improve bone and joint health
    We see increasing number of knee pain, spine issues or back and joint pain, even in younger generation. The reason is definitely unhealthy lifestyle, too much sitting and poor diet. However, there is one major reason – not having enough protein. It is a myth that protein leaches out calcium from bones to neutralise acid. There are numerous long-term studies that suggest that protein intake actually has major benefits when it comes to joint health.

    People having more protein have better bone mass and lower risk of osteoporosis and fractures. Especially women, after menopause are at a higher risk of osteoporosis. Eating quality protein and protein shakes and being active can help them prevent this issue.
  3. Lowers of blood sugar and blood pressure
    Protein helps in balancing blood sugar and improving insulin resistance. That is an important step for people want to lose weight and prevent or reverse diabetes. Studies have shown that protein helps in lowering blood pressure by reducing LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides.
  4. Helps in healing and repairing
    Your body is made to repair itself after an injury or any type of wear and tear to the body. It can do so if it has sufficient protein. Remember, the main task of protein is to repair and growth. If you are facing any pain or health challenge, protein accelerates the healing process.
  5. Delays your age
    Protein is considered one of the best anti-aging tools. Your skin and hair are essentially made up of protein. Collagen and elastin are two proteins that are well-known for their elasticity and skin tightening effects. Your hair is made up of keratin which is protein. Taking regular and quality protein shake, you can get rid of hair fall, skin and hair issues easily.
