Why Eat High Protein Foods?
Protein is vital for your health. Protein is important to build lean body mass and is essential for repairing damaged cells. It transports other nutrients throughout the circulatory system and serves as an energy source when carbohydrate intake is low. Muscle, bone, skin, hair and virtually every other body part or tissue uses protein.
Are All High Protein Foods the Same?
For the body to use the protein you eat, it must be broken down into individual amino acids. These amino acids are the building blocks of protein as they are absorbed into the blood and transported to different tissues where they are then made into proteins needed by the body to maintain muscles, bones, blood, and body organs.
When all of these essential amino acids are present in a food, it is referred to as a complete protein. Animal based foods such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products are considered a complete protein as they contain all of the essential amino acids in one protein source that can be easily used by the body.
