Protein makes up the body’s cells and they are the major part of enzymes, hormones and substances that fight infection.
Foods that are high in protein are foods of animal origin. They are fish, meat and eggs. Beans and legumes have a significant amount of protein.
Each protein contains varying sequence of structures called amino acids. There are twenty amino acids and eleven are non-essential, which means your body can make those ones. The remaining nine are essential, which means you have to get them through your diet because your body cannot make them. For an average adult you should consume approximately 55g of protein ach day. Teenagers should consume 0.085g of protein for every 1kg of body weight.
Next to water, protein is the next richest substance within the body.
On a final note for now, the body requires protein so it will obtain it from wherever it can. If you don’t take in the right amount and type of protein it will take it from your immune system, bones and muscles which means that you will lose muscle mass and gain a higher body-fat ratio.
- Vi-Shape is a shake that I take daily which is a unique and concentrated blend of proteins processed to remove fat, lactose, carbohydrates and isoflavones. Mixed with milk or soy or almond milk it provides 20 – 22 grams of protein, the right mix to burn fat and build lean muscle. It contains vegetable fiber, without gas and digestive aids and enzymes, including prebiotic activity for maximum absorption.
