The Power of Protein

Proteins are the building blocks of our body consisting of amino acids, which plays a vital role in repairing and building your bones, blood, hair, nails, cartilage, skin, and muscles in our bodies. There are 20 different kinds of amino acids, and the sequence in which the different amino acids are arranged helps determine the role of that particular protein.

Indian patients with diabetes almost 2/3rd of them have drastically low protein intake and the intake of proteins reduces post meals. This means that the intake of proteins has not been sufficient in our Indian diet, even though it is an essential part of our daily nutritional intake. A high-protein diet helps curb your hunger, which could help you lose weight.

Here are some of the functions undertaken by proteins in our body:

  • Helps repair damaged cells and make new ones
  • Transports molecules throughout the body
  • Protects your body from viruses and bacteria
  • Promoting proper growth and development in children, teenagers, and pregnant women
  • Improve insulin secretion and suppresses appetite.

An average adult should intake a minimum of 0.8 grams of protein for every kilogram of body weight per day, or just over 7 grams for every 20 pounds of body weight, as recommended by the National Academy of Medicine. The National Academy of Medicine also sets a wide range for acceptable protein intake, which is anywhere from 10% to 35% of calories each day.
