What is protein and why is it important?

Protein is a macro-nutrient meaning your body needs a relatively large amount of it to function. However, unlike other macronutrients (Fat and Carbohydrates) our bodies do not store protein, meaning it needs to be sourced from foods/supplements.

Why do I need a protein supplement?

There are huge benefits for a protein rich diet including satiating appetite and curbing hunger levels, boosting metabolism/increase fat burning and bone health.

Changing lifestyles and goals puts additional stress and requirements on our body from a nutritional perspective. These may include exercising more, achieving and maintaining a leaner body composition or just trying to lose more body fat.

    There are a lot of misconceptions about protein since it is a supplement that is regularly used amongst gym goers and sometimes athletes. However, most of the stigmas attached to it are untrue and we're here to shed some light on the whole topic! 

     

    So, what is protein?

    Protein is a macronutrient that is essential to building and repairing muscle and cells in the body. It is commonly found in animal products, and can also be present in other sources such as nuts, legumes and vegetables.

    Chemically, protein is made up of amino acids. amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and protein is the building blocks of muscle and basically every cell in your body.

    Amino acids can either be Essential (ones the body can produce itself) or Non-essential amino acids (derived from food, and mainly things like meat and animal products and sometimes small traces in vegetables).

    When protein is utilised in the body it helps to fuel and repair muscle, which helps metabolism and helps you build and maintain immunity. Protein also helps you stay full so you don’t feel the need to binge eat as much because research has shown that protein rich foods have a satiety effect.

    Why is it important from an exercise perspective?

    Anyone undertaking any kind of exercise routine is definitely going to need more protein than someone who doesn’t. This is because when you exercise, you are effectively tearing and breaking muscle fibers apart, which then need to be repaired by the body, requiring protein to do so.

    If you are exercising but find yourself with low energy or feel that you are not building any muscle, it may be down to not having enough protein in your diet. 

    Why is protein important in general?

    Protein is an important component of every cell in the body, for example our hair and nails are mostly made of protein and your body uses protein to build and repair tissue. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscle, cartilage, skin, and blood.

    Along with fat and carbohydrates, protein is a "macronutrient," meaning that the body needs relatively large amounts of it. Vitamins and minerals, which are needed in only small quantities, are called "micronutrients."

    However, unlike fat and carbohydrates, the body does not store protein, and therefore has no reservoir to draw on when it needs a new supply and that’s why it’s important to consume it in your diet!

    Hopefully this helps breaks some barriers about protein and its uses. If you have anymore questions feel free to contact us :)

    I Love it!

    I struggled to find a good protein powder for a while. It was hard to find one that both mixes well and tastes good while providing the nutritional benefits you hope to reap.

    This protein powder tastes amazing, mixes well, and even better, helps my body.

    My job is very physically demanding and I noticed a difference in my performance and recovery.

    I personally need a high protein diet for health reasons and this powder tastes good enough to drink as frequently as I need! Also it is fine to mix with water- usually protein powders have an odd consistency with water but I personally didn’t mind if I ran out of my milk with this one.

    It’s a quality product and I can’t wait to get my new orders of it soon!

    Lean protein powder

    Super yum! Normally chocolate flavoured protein isn't amazing, but the nakdnu one is yum and easy to blend! Would recommend combining it with a scoop of the unflavoured collagen powder.
