Proteins are the main building blocks of muscle tissue. The human body needs protein to repair and build tissue as well to maintain a healthy immune system. Our wide list of delicious protein powders are designed with the best ingredients available and can help individuals to guarantee an adequate intake of protein.

Importance of protein


In the bodybuilding world, protein is best known for its importance to muscle growth. Nevertheless, protein has a lot more functions than just muscle growth. It is also essential to develop antibodies and to protect the organism against harmful invaders and to produce enzymes, hormones and neurotransmitters.

As you can see, there are a lot of reasons as to why all people should guarantee an adequate daily intake of protein.

 

Biological value and protein sources


The Biological Value (BV) measures the percentage of protein that is used by the body to protein synthesis processes in relation to the actual total protein absorbed. The BV scale goes from 0 to100. The best a protein source is, the higher will rank.

Due to their high biological value, animal sources are considered to be better protein sources than vegetarian ones. Animal sources such as meat, fish and eggs rank high in the biological value scale, meaning the body can use most of the protein found in these sources to build and repair tissue.

Eggs are among the most complete protein sources as they contain all the essential amino acids needed by the body. Meat, fish,cheese and milk are also valuable protein sources.

Vegetable protein, in turn, generally has a lower BV value. This happens because they're usually low in one or more of the essential amino acids. Although, this doesn't mean that you shouldn't have them. It just means that your diet should include both vegetable and animal food sources.

 

Protein for vegetarians


Vegetarians can struggle to have an adequate intake of high bioavailability protein as they don't eat animal food sources. However, it's completely possible to follow a vegetarian lifestyle and build muscle. You'll just have to vary your diet and pick the best vegetable protein sources

The list is comprehensive: soy, tofu, chickpeas, quinoa, peas, lentils,beans, mushrooms, legumes, whole grains, nuts and pasta.
