What is Protein?
Protein is one of the main building blocks of our bodies - we need large quantities of the stuff to sustain regular bodily functions throughout day-to-day life. Being the second most abundant compound in the body, protein belongs to the macronutrient family, joined by fats and carbohydrates.
Most commonly known for being found in animal products, protein can also be found elsewhere in nuts, legumes and most importantly our vegetarian or vegan Protein Balls.
Why is protein important in Our Diets?
Although protein is often associated with building and repairing muscle and therefore only consumed by gym bunnies, it’s actually essential for us all, no matter your lifestyle. Here are just a few reasons why protein should regularly incorporated into your diet…
Protein plays an important role when it comes to building and repairing not only muscles but cartilage, tissues and skin too.
Red blood cells need a sufﬁcient amount of protein to efﬁciently carry oxygen around the body.
Protein keeps you feeling fuller for longer as it slows the release of
sugar from food and is slow to break down itself, unlike carbohydrates.
Finally, protein helps support healthy aging by maintaining muscle and bone strength as well as making up part of our skin, hair and nails.
