Healthy Vending Machines in London - The Importance Of Protein
Updated: Jan 20
We are becoming more and more conscientious about what we eat these days, as we strive to improve our health and physical appearance, and we have adjusted our diets to help us in this endeavour.
It’s very on trend now for food manufacturers to make produce with high protein content in order to attract gym goers and the health conscious.
We seem to be inundated with various brands of ‘protein bars’ and even souped-up protein-rich cereals.
There is undoubtedly a huge emphasis on protein - but how important is it?
Protein is an essential building block in the formulation and repair of your bones, cartilage, skin, blood and muscles. Also, the bodies antibodies are comprised of proteins, which are of course vital in helping us fight infection.
In relation to the gym, and exercise in general, your muscles are strained, and when it comes to weight training, torn. Protein is essential in helping fill in these tears in order to make your muscles bigger, and to also help your muscles recover post-workout.
So to conclude, protein is an essential element of a balanced diet - but the key word is ‘balanced’ - for a truly effective diet you need to make sure you are consuming all the food groups in the right quantities.
