Proteins are the main building blocks of the body. They’re used to make muscles, tendons, organs and skin. They are also used to make enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters and various tiny molecules that serve important functions. Without protein, life as we know it would not be possible.
Proteins are made out of smaller molecules called amino acids, which are linked together like beads on a string. The linked amino acids form long protein chains, which are then folded into complex shapes.
Some of these amino acids can be produced by the body, while we must get others from the diet. The ones we can not produce and must get from our foods are called the “essential” amino acids.
The best sources of protein are meats, fish, eggs and dairy products. They have all the essential amino acids that your body needs. There are also some plants that are fairly high in protein, like quinoa, legumes and nuts. Protein is not just about quantity. It’s also about quality. Animal protein are of a better quality. Generally speaking, animal protein provides all the essential amino acids in the right ratio for us to make full use of them. If you’re eating animal products (meat, fish, eggs, or dairy) every day, then you’re probably already doing pretty well, protein-wise. If you don’t eat animal foods, then it is a bit more challenging to get all the protein and essential amino acids that your body needs.
Most people don’t really need protein supplements, but they can be useful for athletes and bodybuilders to make a positive final balance of protein intake.
To gain muscle, the body must be synthesizing more muscle protein than it is breaking down. In other words, there needs to be a net positive protein balance.
For this reason, people who want a lot of muscle will need to eat a greater amount of protein. It is well documented that a higher protein intake helps build muscle and strength as an article published by John D Bosse in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition 2012, 9:42.
If you did not know, in patients with longer stay in a hospital and with malnutrition , we add as a supplement protein to ensure adecuate intake and avoid loss of muscle mass.
It is important to eat enough protein if you want to gain and/or maintain muscle. Most studies suggest for body building is that 0.7 – 1 grams per pound of lean mass (1.5 – 2.2 grams per kg) is sufficient. As a supplement, proteins are great for body building and are essential in its correct dose taking.
I recommend the online store HEAVEN NUTRITION[url=][/url], a great webpage ( which you can buy online your proteins, it works well, and they work with 3XL NUTRITION protein, being one of the best proteins manufactured in Spain.
Remember if you take more than the recommended dose, your throwing your money and irking your kidney. A very high protein diet can challenge the kidneys to get rid of the protein. If the kidney is unable to rid itself of the protein, you could be on the way to kidney failure. Beware, the first symptom is nocturia.
