Why Getting Enough Protein is Essential For Overall Health

Why Getting Enough Protein is Essential For Overall Health

Are you looking to improve your overall health? Protein has an abundance of health-promoting benefits.

Proteins are the building blocks of life. Protein, a macronutrient, plays a key role in the development and maintenance of every cell in our bodies. It’s important to incorporate protein at every meal because it repairs our cells, powers our bodies, and helps us stay in shape.

Protein plays a role in necessary body functions, including:

· Muscle and bone health

· Cell and tissue repair

· Hormone regulation

· Transports oxygen throughout the body

· Enzymes for digestion

 

Protein is also important for weight management and fitness performance and results. Protein will help:

· Keep you full and satisfied

· Maintain a healthy weight

· Enhance recovery time after exercise

· Build lean muscle

· Curb hunger

 

The amount of protein you need in your diet will depend on several factors – height, weight, age, physical activity levels, and illnesses. The daily recommended intake of protein for healthy adults is 10% to 35% of your total calorie needs. For example, a person on a 2000 calorie diet could eat 100 grams of protein, which would provide 20% of their total daily calories.

 

Here are suggestions on how to add more protein to your diet.

· Include one high protein food with each meal – try lentils, tempeh, or tofu

· Have a serving of protein with your snack – add a scoop of peanut or sunflower butter to your apple or grab an OWYN Protein Shake

· Add beans and peas to soups, salads, and side dishes

· Swap out a piece of toast for an egg in the morning

· Reach for an OWYN High Protein Shake after a workout

 

Following these tips can help you get more protein, maintain a healthy diet, and stay healthy.
