Whether you’re trying to gain muscle mass, lose weight, bulk up or are just trying to eat better to fuel your body, you have to introduce more protein into your diet. Of course, this is easier said than done. Finding foods and creating meal plans that are filled with protein but low in carbohydrates, fat and calories can be tough and time-consuming. We’re here to help! With our range of protein-rich products and expert advice, you’ll be consuming more protein in no time.
Why is Protein Important?
We can’t very well tell you how to incorporate more protein into your diet without telling you why you should.
In short, protein helps every single cell in your body. Yep! Your fingernails are made of protein and your body uses protein to build and repair tissue, including - of course - muscle tissue. Enzymes, hormones and other important body chemicals are made from - you guessed it! - protein.
We could go into detail about the role protein plays in your blood, skin and bones, but we’ll stick with muscles for now. A constant supply of protein helps your muscles recover after a strenuous workout. The more protein you consume, the quicker this recovery will take place and the quicker you’ll build muscle mass. Without protein, you wouldn't be able to maintain muscle, let alone build it!
But protein isn’t just important on a cellular level. Protein also keeps you feeling fuller, longer. This will help you curb cravings and could help you lose weight.
