A question we often get is why should I supplement with protein? Time for Innermost to break it down for you.
What is protein and what does it do?
Protein is an important nutrient made up of amino acids, which are the building blocks of skin, hair, nails, muscle and tendons. Protein also ensures your immune system is functioning properly and has been shown to keep you feeling fuller for longer keeping hunger pangs at bay better than carbohydrates or fats.
Why should you supplement with protein?
Protein is especially important for those who exercise. You know the feeling of sore muscles the day after a workout? That’s a result of microtears in your muscle fibres that need to be repaired and amino acids are a critical component of that repair process. The good news is that as those muscle tears are repaired, you grow stronger and fitter. And it’s not just your muscles that need protein. Your body uses protein to repair all body tissue, which includes hair, skin, nails and tendons. You can of course get your protein from food but it takes more time for your body to break it down and often it can also contain saturated fat, cholesterol and other things you don’t need.
Our tailored range of superfood protein blends are a convenient and highly bioavailable source of protein. They’re all packed with the right essential amino acids including high levels of leucine, which is the amino acid that is the most important in the rebuilding process.
