7 Reasons Protein Is So Good For You!

7 Reasons Protein Is So Good For Your Body!

So everyone at The Evolution Project, Camberley knows that I am a firm believer in a strong protein intake in order to see great results! If you want to grow up big and strong, you must eat your veggies and your proteins!

Protein helps us build muscle and aids recovery after a workout, but did you know, it is so much more then that!

Protein is a crucial part in every cell of our bodies. Protein not only builds muscle, it also makes hormones and other naturally occurring chemicals, and is responsible for hair and nail growth! Basically, your body needs a lot of protein to function at its best!

For Your Overall Health

Protein does more than build muscle in the body. It is in the nucleus of every single one of our cells. For cells to grow, heal and divide, they need protein in their nucleus.

For Your Brain

If you’re having a hard time focusing or ever feel like your brain is ‘fuzzy,’ fluctuating blood sugar may be the cause of your troubles. Try adding more protein to your breakfast. A protein rich breakfast can help regulate blood sugar.

Prevent Cravings

Protein helps regulate blood sugar levels which can curb cravings and help you resist unhealthy snacking throughout the day and energy slumps.

For Your Results

To see great results requires great training (Like Evo!) and a diet with enough protein. Protein boosts metabolism, and when you train as hard as you do at Evo, you are going to need a little more of this nutrient in your diet!

For Your Muscles

In addition to fueling the body and helping build muscles, protein promotes healing. Muscles and tissues in the body repair faster and grow stronger. More protein means less soreness after workouts.

For Your Immune System

Not only will injuries heal faster with protein; the immune system’s cells require protein to work efficiently. If you’re getting sick often, it may be a signal to add more protein to your diet.

For Your Body’s Overall Balance

Protein contributes to the body’s production of its natural chemicals that regulate health and maintain balance. The production of enzymes and hormones relies on protein as well.

Eating real (rather than processed) foods is a simple and effective way to get more quality protein. Some Plant-based examples of protein include Raw Vegan Protein Powder, Spirulina, Nuts and Seeds, whole grains such as Quinoa, Lentils, Chickpeas and Beans.
