About Protein Supplements

Protein is a crucial dietary component containing the nine essential amino acids. Many experts believe protein is the most important nutrient, after water of course. Protein supplements are merely a concentrated powdered form of this essential macronutrient, making them useful for a range of health and performance needs.

 

Protein Supplements can be used by people engaged in exercise programs or anyone finding it difficult to get enough from their diet. Vegan and vegetarian diets are more difficult to obtain enough quality protein from, which is where vegan protein supplements can be of particular benefit. These days, protein supplements come in a wide range of forms, including shakes, cookies, bars and even protein-coated almonds, and from a variety of sources as well, such as plant-based, dairy, egg and even meat-based products.

 

Protein is made up of often complex amino acids chains held together by peptide bonds. There are nine essential amino acids (EAAs) in total, including the popular branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). EAAs are termed essential because the human body cannot synthesise them. Therefore, we must get our daily intake of EAAs from our diet or supplementation. There are also a range of conditionally essential and non-essential amino acids, such as glutamine and glutamic acid, respectively. Though we can synthesise these types of amino acids, given that we are getting enough of the EAAs, there are some instances in which more than we can produce is needed. For instance, glutamine supplementation is useful for skin healing in cases of sunburn, and glycine and proline are helpful for cartilage health in osteoarthritis.

 

Protein supplements assist with a variety of body processes, such as the maintenance and repair of muscle tissue, the production of immunoglobulins, neurotransmitters and enzymes, which we need to digest protein in the first place. They really are an important and often underestimated dietary component.
