Sunrider Sunfit Plant Protein ShakeDid you know that your organs, tissues, muscles and hormones are all made from proteins? Protein is used by every part of the body to develop, grow and function properly. Proteins are long chains of amino acids, which are essential molecules for all metabolic processes.

Studies show that eating protein has a number of health benefits.

Eating enough protein is necessary to build and maintain healthy muscle mass, while also supporting tendon, ligaments and other body tissue.

Protein is important for bodybuilding, but it's also necessary for developing leaner muscles as well. When your diet is lacking in amino acids, "muscle wasting" (or muscle atrophy) can take place when your muscle fibers are broken down to support your body's energy needs. 

Promotes Healthy Brain Function and Learning
The brain requires a steady supply of amino acids in order to keep concentration, focus and energy levels up. Studies show that when amino acid deprivation takes place, learning and coordination suffers, but once all necessary amino acids are reintroduced into the diet, learning and motor skills improve.

Eating foods with protein has a beneficial effect on blood glucose levels in that it can slow down the absorption of sugar during a meal. This means a protein diet can help prevent spikes in blood glucose, which is especially important for preventing type 2 diabetes, balancing energy levels, and keeping your appetite and mood in check.

Improves Your Mood
Certain amino acids from protein foods are needed to balance hormones naturally. Proteins help neurotransmitters function and synthesize hormones like dopamine and serotonin that calm us and keep our outlook positive.
Protects Heart Health
Some studies show that a relationship between protein intake and risk of heart disease. It is thought that in adults, as higher protein diets appear to be beneficial for high blood pressure.
