Importance of Protein

The human body can not survive without proteins. But why? In this article we will illustrate the various points of the aforementioned reason and therefore the why of the importance of proteins.

To underestimate the importance of proteins is one of the most dangerous fads of recent times, as well as the promotion of the scarce intake of quantitative proteins and the assertion that the qualitative distinction of the various food sources makes no sense.

The consideration of two prerequisites is fundamental to understand the need for protein:

• Proteins, whose name means "occupying the first position", "first" or "main", are substances that arise from the endless combinations of twenty amino acids. The result of these combinations are macromolecules - proteins in fact - with highly specific functions that are essential for the proper functioning of our organism and it regards: antibodies, enzymes, hemoglobin, some hormones and many others.

• Proteins are used continuously and then synthesized and consequently the so-called protein turnover is manifested, an expression of the adaptability of the human body to changing its needs.
Foods of animal origin, legumes, nuts and oil seeds are among the food sources of protein, while cereals contain less.

Having the certainty of taking all the amino acids you need is not easy and you have to pay due attention to identifying those foods that can provide them, perhaps talking to a nutritionist or deepening the subject, perhaps by following this blog and others like it.

The association of foods is very important, especially if of vegetable origin, and in this last case the share of proteins can be reached with greater difficulty, so pay attention if you follow a vegetarian, vegan or similar diet: it's not to be underestimated and it can affect all aspects of your life, from the mental / emotional to the physical, you can immediately measure the quantities you eat, if you do not do it, I strongly recommend that you immediately start with it foot your well-being.

In addition there is to consider that the lower the intake of calories is the higher the need of proteins and vice versa, if you consume more calories the need of protein tends to decrease.
