Protein is the powerhouse in your body’s T-Cells, which are essentially your body’s foot soldiers against foreign particles, which can enter your bloodstream and make you sick. Protein boosts your immune response and protects you from risks such as fatigue, weakness, and sickness. Here is how!
Your cells are made of protein
...And that includes the cells in your immune system. Consuming the correct amount of protein per day will allow your immune cells to regenerate quickly. What is important is that you are consuming the 9 amino acids, not naturally produced by your body.
If you follow a plant-based diet, it is important to ensure that you are ingesting enough protein. Our complete protein powder will be perfect for complementing a healthy diet, to ensure you are gaining the correct amount of amino acids for your immune system.
Complete protein vs incomplete protein
The 9 essential amino acids that you need for a functioning immune system, as well as for muscle repair are histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. Most foods have these to varying degrees, but your body does not produce them, so it is vital you consume them.
If you are trying to build muscle and shape up, you will be wanting to ingest protein in the most calorie efficient way possible. One of our protein shakes is a tasty and efficient way to pack those amino acids in.
