the perks of protein

So much of your body and its critical functions rely on protein. Your brain, bones, ligaments, tendons, liver, skin, hair, and nails are all made up of - you guessed it - proteins. It provides essential amino acids that your body needs to regulate hormones associated with growth, energy metabolism, appetite, stress, reproduction, and satiety. Building your diet around this essential macronutrient can truly help you harmonize your health

Helps you feel full*

Protein reduces levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin while turning on four different satiety hormones (peptide YY, CCK, GLP, pancreatic polypeptide).

Key for healthy hair & nails*

Hair and nails are largely made of keratin, a protein that supports their structure, growth, and strength.

Supports healthy skin*

Skin is the largest organ in your body and protein is critical for its key functions from collagen synthesis and cell turnover to maintaining elasticity and hormone balance.

Promotes balanced body composition*

Protein naturally helps build and maintain lean muscle mass and helps your body burn fat as fuel instead.

Boosts your metabolism*

Your body requires significantly more energy (calories) to digest, absorb, and process protein than any other macronutrient (this is called the thermic effect of food) which revs your metabolism.

Promotes balanced blood sugar and hormones*

Protein is essential for the production of hormones and supports healthy hormone balance by slowing the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream (thus preventing blood sugar imbalances).

your anti-aging secret

After 30, our bodies' ability to maintain and build muscle drops off dramatically - and that's not just in a body-builder-y way. Lean muscles are the organ of longevity and help us with everything from movement and flexibility to posture and energy. Muscle also plays a vital role in fighting off inflammation in the body.

Consuming the ideal amount of protein daily can help combat this process, (AKA anabolic resistance) to make the most of every workout. The daily amount I aim for is 1 gram of protein / ideal body weight*. "Ideal" will vary for each of us, but this is a helpful starting point to gauge how much protein you should be eating each day.
