Why Protein is the Most Important Nutrient Your Body Need..!!
28 March 2018
      Protein is an essential nutrient, responsible for multiple functions in your body, including building tissue, cells and muscle, as well as making hormones and anti-bodies.Protein is an important component of your skin, hair, fingernails, bones, blood and cartilage. Where do we get protein from? Meats, fish, poultry, eggs and milk products are good sources of complete protein and are also sources of certain minerals like iron and zinc. On the other hand, plant proteins offer up a wide array of vitamins and minerals, along with fiber and antioxidants.Pure vegetarians might find it difficult to get complete protein from vegan sources. Soy, quinoa, peas, chickpeas, spinach are some other plant proteins you could load up on.  How much protein do you need? There are different looks for how much protein the average man or womens should eat every day, and these recommendations are set at levels to meet the very basic needs of most people. But, body sizes and body composition can vary a lot from person to person. Since protein helps to support lean body mass, it stands to reason that protein needs are going to differ between. *People who eat a high protein breakfast consume about 250 calories less per day than those who have a high-carbohydrate breakfast. * For a high protein snack- mix some roasted soy nuts in with your usual dried fruits, chips and nuts. *Two more reasons to get plenty of protein – both hair and nails, made from the protein called keratin, need it in order to grow healthy and strong.
