​How important is protein in your diet, do you know? 

Protein is an important component of every cell in the body👌. 
Hair and nails are mostly made of protein💅

Your body needs protein to build and repair tissues, produce enzymes, hormones and other body chemicals. 

Protein is also an important building block of bones, muscles💪, cartilage, skin and blood. Unlike fat and carbohydrates, the body doesn’t store protein and therefore has no reservoir to draw on when it needs a new supply😱.

 Studies goes even further showing how important is protein when comes to the aging process 💁🏼🤶and maintenance of muscle mass for strength and autonomy🏋️. 

That’s why keeping the right protein intake for your body is essential, no more.. Nor less.. Just right and tailor made to your needs. It doesn’t matter if comes from a animal or vegetable source, the body will break down in the same way, just watch the quantities and sources 🤓. 

To find out how much you need, consider your level of physical activity, sex, age, medical history and goals😉. 

Roughly it goes around 0.8 per kg of body weight (minimum) for most people. Are you including enough protein in your diet🙋?

Make sure you share that with your protein fan friends 🙂
