A CLOSER LOOK AT PROTEIN
     Protein is required for every one of the thousands of processes inside the human body. You cannot think, breathe, walk, blink or live one second without protein! Next to water, protein is the most abundant substance in your body. It makes up 80% of the solid part of your body (sometimes more).


 

Some of the hundreds of processes in which protein is an important factor:

•Protein is required for the burning of fat tissue within the body.
•Protein is required to prevent the loss of lean tissue within the body.
•Protein makes up about twenty percent of the energy required for you to be alive.
•Protein makes hair and skin.
•Protein makes hormones inside your body.
•Protein is essential for eyesight.
•Higher amounts of protein can increase energy levels.
•Protein can decrease the amount of fat tissue deposited in response to meals.
•Protein slows down the rate at which carbohydrates enter the bloodstream, thereby decreasing total glucose levels, which reduces fat storage, insulin output, and the post meal lethargy.
•Protein can help lower cholesterol levels.
•Protein can help prevent and reverse diabetes
