All You Need to Know About Protein
Protein is pretty phenomenal if you think about it. It is truly the building block of the human body. It’s not just our muscles that benefit from protein. All tissues in our body use protein to build and repair.
So hair, nails, skin – these are all built from protein. Even our body’s immune system is built on this magnificent nutrient! Protein is essential not just for fitness enthusiasts and gym-goers, but literally, everybody needs it.
Everybody Needs Protein
9/10 Indians are protein deficient. Despite being an essential macronutrient, a majority of us consume protein-deficient diets. The lack of awareness regarding proteins is one of the primary reasons for this enormous number!
An adequate amount of protein is essential to build immunity, help growth for children, women and older people and aid muscle recovery and building.
Basically, everyone needs proteins, irrespective of age and lifestyle. How much, you ask? Precisely, 1gm per kg of your body weight. That means, if your weight is 60kgs, you need 60gms of protein per day.
