Protein Shakes and Exercise - what is the connection?

by andMe Bioactive Beverage 29 Nov 2021

[article] Protein & exercise - you might already be imagining body builders eating tubs of chicken and drinking protein shakes!

Well, protein is not only meant for people who exercise a lot or are athletes! Protein is actually a macronutrient and one of the three major nutrients, after carbohydrates and fats. They are made up of amino acids and is an essential part of any healthy diet.

But what makes proteins so important?

Your cells die constantly and get replaced with new cells, every day! You need certain resources to rebuild these cells. Proteins are one of  those  building blocks of our body! They are responsible for maintenance and production of cells.  Eating adequate amounts of protein helps in maintaining your muscle mass and prevents muscle wasting. 

Why do we need protein after exercising?

You effectively end up breaking and tearing down a lot of muscle while exercising (How will you get that perfect shape, otherwise?). That is why a lot of people at the gym seem to be eating protein bars or drinking protein shakes after they have finished their workout routine. It helps in increasing the impact of the exercise and helps the body build back or repair the muscle.

It is important to add some amount of carbohydrate to your diet as it helps in absorption of protein and turn it into more muscle mass.

Should I eat protein even if I do not exercise?

Yes! Proteins are essential for maintaining energy levels because they are also essential in transporting energy to the body. It also works closely with the immune system and helps your body fight off many diseases and conditions.
Since your body does not store protein like it stores carbohydrates or fats, it is important to consume it every day! So make it a part of your diet plan!

What is the connection between protein and women’s health?

As women age, they suffer from bone loss and protein helps in maintaining adequate bone strength and density.  Enough protein contributes in maintaining sufficient muscle mass and function, which is critical for the overall bone health.

Not consuming enough protein might even increase the chances of getting heart attacks and coronary diseases in women. It also plays a huge role in weight management. As it increases the feeling of fullness and when consumed with a low calorie, it might even lead to body fat loss while your body maintains the muscle mass.

Pregnant and breastfeeding women should also consume more protein than non-pregnant and non-nursing women as it maximizes breastmilk production and improves infant growth and development.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
