The Importance of Protein for Women

The Importance of Protein for Women

Many women think of protein as something you consume in order to “bulk”. The truth is that protein is an essential part of health for women.

Protein will help you maintain and build muscle mass. This is important when attempting to gain weight or lose weight. When losing weight, you may lose muscle mass, in addition to losing fat. The goal is to preserve lean muscle mass as much as possible while losing weight because the more muscle you carry, the more energy (calories) you burn at rest. OWYN’s Protein Shake provides the perfect protein boost to help maintain lean muscle mass.

Protein can help with skin, hair, and nail health. The proteins collagen, elastin, and keratinare important for skin, hair, and nail health. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, and it makes up 70% of our skin's composition. Collagen declines greatly as we age so it becomes essential for women. Some signs of inadequate protein may be premature wrinkles, thinning or brittle hair, flaky and dry skin, and you might also find deep ridges on your fingernails.

Protein decreases cravings and increases satisfaction after a meal. Getting enough protein at a meal helps keep you full for a longer period of time and avoid blood sugar crashes that can lead to intense cravings. Staying fuller longer and avoiding cravings can help decrease calorie consumption leading to weight loss. So, if you find yourself constantly hungry throughout the day and reaching for chips or cookies for snacks, try grabbing an OWYN Protein Shake to give your body the protein it needs. 

Protein keeps bones strong. Bone health is a concern that many women share. The risk for osteoporosis, a disease where bones become fragile and break easily, is common in women over 50. Adequate protein plays a large role in keeping your bones strong. It’s important to keep your bones strong starting at a young age to avoid injuries as you get older. OWYN’s High Protein Shake is a convenient way to help you meet your daily protein needs.

All women need protein to improve overall health. It doesn’t matter what stage of life you’re in or the goals you are trying to achieve. Consuming adequate protein will help you look and feel your best.
