What is plant-based protein? Why do people choose this?
First of all, let’s talk about protein. Protein makes up our bodies. In fact, it has been dubbed as life’s building blocks. Every part of your body, from the tips of your hair down to your toenails are made up of protein, or to be exact — amino acids. It’s therefore impossible for the body to function without it. Without amino acids (the stuff that make up protein) your body will be unable to regenerate new cells and tissues or even produce hormones. Getting nutrition into the cells is also part of the amino acid job description. The body can produce 13 amino acids that it needs. However, the body desperately needs 9 more types of amino acids, and you can only get these from the food that you eat.
Almost everything we eat contains at least a bit of protein, but sometimes your body just don’t have enough supply for the demand. You should assess your protein intake when you experience headaches, dizziness, nausea, mood swings (depression/crankiness), muscle cramps and soreness, inability to concentrate, unexplainable exhaustion, with more telling factors such as brittle nails, hair loss, loss of muscle mass and inability to build muscles. Experts also advise that when you want to gain muscle mass through working out, increasing your protein intake would be helpful in achieving your fitness goals.
There are two protein sources that you can choose from: animal-based protein and plant-based protein. Of course, as their names suggest, one is from animals and the other is from plants. There is a huge controversy regarding which one is the ideal protein source, so it can be confusing for some people to choose which one to go for.
We are completely rooting for plant-based proteins due to its health benefits. We wish we could say the same about animal-based protein, but that’s just not the case. Animal-based protein option is the easy way out, while plant-based is the healthy way out.
You might be contemplating about your protein source right now. Is it the right choice?
We don’t believe in risking our lives for our protein. Why would you risk your life when there is a safer and healthier source that can also give you all the protein that you need?
