protein facts

PROTEIN are made up of smaller units called AMINO ACIDS. There are 22 different amino acids that are needed for protein synthesis. Amino acids are the basic building blocks of human body & they are vital to the building & repairing of our muscle. One of the most important proteins is LAMININ which holds every cell in the body together.

Second to water, Protein is the most plentiful nutrient found in our bodies, in our muscles, connective tissues, skin, eyes, fingernails, hormones, enzymes & blood. Proteins also form a major component of our vital organs & are essential for maintaining balance & health.

Our bodies do not have a large capacity for storing Protein, so if we do not get enough from our diets, our muscle mass will begin to break down within days. The healthy but relatively inactive person will not require as much as the person who exercises. The more regular & the higher the intensity of exercise, the greater the amount of protein is needed. The protein requirement is depends on your age, size & activity level, but the average person requires 20 % of their daily intake to be made up of Protein.

The higher your levels of protein, the higher your secretion of nitrogenous waste. This means that your body is more toxic & acidic. Since Calcium is needed to neutralize acidity in the body, you will be robbed of precious calcium deposits, resulting in Osteoporosis. Other symptoms can include Arthritis, Gout, & Constipation.
