The human body is a vastly complex and marvellous machine, and the oil that makes it all run smoothly comes in the form of protein. Protein strands comprise of a series of amino acids joined together in peptide bonds, and there are many different varieties of protein strand in the body. When they’re not building or repairing muscle tissue, they are acting as catalysts for biological reactions all over the body. Protein truly is a marvellous substance, and it doesn’t stop with the human body.
Whey protein is not only being used to boost recyclability, it is a common supplement for body builders. Companies like Muscleforce Supplements here supply a myriad of useful protein supplements to add to your diet: and there are a lot of different kinds to choose from. You can often find high a protein count in foods like cottage cheese or a steak, but with supplements the protein strands are mixed in a solution which makes them easier to digest. The less work your body has to do breaking down the proteins, the quicker they will enter your system and begin building. This is why companies like Lucozade have never gone out of fashion. The three fact sheets, which you can download from the provided link, show just how vital protein is to our diets and how much of it can be found in energy drinks. Hydration fuels muscle mass, hence why many sports enthusiasts drink energy drinks to keep going, and take protein supplements to build up.
Regulating a high protein diet requires more, however, than simply supplements and drinks; supplements are after all designed to supplement, not replace. Thus a high protein diet must include high protein foods, such as red meat, lentils, and eggs. To make the most of every meal it’s worth consulting some high protein recipes which you can find on Food.com here.
According to The Dr Oz Show, as mentioned here on Nerdles, we are not getting enough protein in our diets. Your protein intake has much to do with your metabolism, and as Dr Oz says at the bottom of the article, whey protein powders can actually help speed up your metabolism and help you lose weight. Have I convinced you of proteins’ incredible versatility yet? How about this article from News-Medical on Alzheimer’s development? I particularly enjoy the line ‘This is the first time a protein that functions as a controller of motors has been reported.’
The human body is a complex machine, and we are only beginning to scratch the surface of its potential: and it all starts with the foundation blocks.
