Uses & Benefits
Improves body composition by building lean muscle
Supports healthy blood sugar balance and immune function
Promotes healthy weight loss in overweight individuals
Minimizes age-related muscle and bone loss
High protein diets have been shown to improve body composition (percentages of bone, muscle, and fat) by promoting healthy weight loss in those who are overweight, helping athletes build muscle mass, and minimizing muscle and bone loss in the elderly. Protein also improves cholesterol levels and blood sugar regulation, and reduces risk factors for heart disease. Since the body has no way of storing protein, relatively large amounts of it are required in the diet daily.
Vegetarian diets have become more popular, as they are associated with many health benefits due to their low fat content and high content of fibre, vitamins, and phytonutrients. However, vegans and vegetarians must ensure their protein intake provides the complete spectrum of essential amino acids by combining plant proteins from legumes, grains, and seeds. This is especially important for pregnant women, infants, growing children, athletes, and the elderly.
