The argument over the importance of protein is over, but let’s rehash it a bit., okay? Protein is a vital ingredient of every cell in the body. Hair and nails are made of protein. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. If there is something important going on in your body, protein is involved. Just like fats and carbs, protein is a “macronutrient,” meaning that the body needs a bunch of it every day. Unfortunately, our bodies don’t warehouse protein for when it’s needed.
Usually, we thumb our noses at products that are derivatives of some otherwise healthy food. We’re all about advocating for nutrition from the whole food, just as it was grown. Keep it simple, right? Well, every once in a while we see something that doesn’t exactly fit our ethos, but has benefits that are so compelling that we just can’t resist. That’s protein powder. Aside from being absolutely necessary for life, check out what a powerhouse it is.
