Health Benefits of Protein

Information

When it comes to beef, what's not to love? Here are just a few of the many health benefits of beef and why our beef jerky fundraisers are the way to go!

 

We have all heard this before, but don't really know why. What is it about protein that keeps our tummies full? Well, I was surprised by the science behind feeling full.

Protein reduces your level of the hunger hormone ghrelin. It also boosts the levels of peptide YY, a hormone that makes you feel full. (according to www.healthline.com)

HealthyFood.com says high protein foods may be the key to beating mid-morning muffin cravings.

Talk about satisfying!

When you exercise you create tiny tears in your muscle tissue. That sounds terrible, but it when your muscles heal they become stronger. Your body needs protein to heal your "torn" muscles.

According to Men's Health Magazine, your body needs to synthesize more muscle protein than it breaks down.

It is beautiful how our bodies work. There are so many different systems and functions happening at once and in harmony with each other. If protein supports healing muscles, why not other parts of your body as well?

According to WebMD, protein is a critical part of the processes that carry oxygen throughout your body in your blood. It helps make antibodies that fight off infections and illnesses. It also helps keep cells healthy and create new ones!

 

Your body needs food to survive. When your food is broken down in your body it is either stored or turned into energy.

According to Livestrong.com, protein uses more calories in digestion than carbohydrates do. This accounts for one of the ways protein speeds up metabolism. Protein also builds metabolically active muscle and prevents body fat storage.

With all these benefits of protein it is easy to see that it helps you lose weight. Fuller stomach, more muscle, and higher energy are all key to weight loss. But protein also helps you keep the weight off.

According to Healthline.com, a modest increase in protein intake has been shown to help with weight maintenance. In one study, increasing protein from 15% to 18% of calories reduces weight regain by 50%.

Now that's food for thought!

These are just a few of the many benefits of protein. All of your diet needs a balance and variety. Vegetables, fruit, fish, meat, beans, and grains all have a role to play in keeping you happy and healthy.
