8 Unknown Facts about Protein Intake

protein intake

Meta description: No matter if you are into fitness or you try to have a healthy diet, you undoubtedly heard a lot of proteins, fats, and carbs discussions. While for the last two, opinions are still controversial, almost everyone can agree that protein is essential. Check out some interesting facts about protein and see if your intake is within recommended doses. 

 It just feels like you cannot be sure of anything these days when talking about nutrition and health matters. With so much involvement from big companies looking to make a profit, even the most researched statements feel like they could be biased, and that is not good for anyone. We will not add any more drops in this infinite ocean. How whey protein nutrition facts are accurate or how you can get protein without meat – just two randomly picked talks. Instead, we are going to present some very interesting facts about proteins that are also based on scientific studies. They are not meant to influence anyone at all. 

Protein Reduces Hunger Levels and Appetite

Not that there is a competition between proteins, carbs, and fats, but if such a thing happened, protein would be the most filling by far. It makes you feel full with fewer quantities. It occurs because it reduces the secretion of ghrelin – the hunger hormone – and it increases the flow of peptide YY, a hormone responsible for making you feel full. For a list of ailments with a high protein count, you will not need my kitchen advisor or any others for that matter. It is all in the studies.

These two combined effects have a powerful impact when talking about how much food you need to feel full. And this affirmation is backed up by facts since overweight women ended up eating 441 fewer calories each day after their protein intake was increased from 15% to 30%. Moreover, this happened without any intentional restrictions. 

Increases Strength and Muscle Mass

Physical power

The word “protein” comes from the old Greek word proteins that can be translated as “primary.” 

Of course, this does not support the statement in the header at all. However, it is another way of helping you understand it is a building block for muscles. You did not need premier protein nutrition facts. Numerous studies showed that adequate protein intake helps muscle growth and maintains muscle mass. Of course, the growth part can only be achieved through weight training. 

Furthermore, making sure you get the recommended protein intake will help you prevent muscle loss when you are trying to lose weight. You do not have to take our word for it, here’s the study on the matter

Increases Bone Resistance

Now, it is time to bust a myth that keeps running for some time now. More precisely, the theory is that animal protein could be bad for the bones. This theory is formulated using the idea that the acid load in your body is increased by protein. That leads to calcium leaching from the bones for acid neutralization. However, long-term studies show that all protein types come with benefits for bone health.

Proteins Have a Short Lifespan

The average lifespan of most proteins spread across a couple of days. However, there were recent discoveries that tend to indicate some proteins have hugely increased lifespans, and that could lead to breakthroughs for cell aging and neurodegeneration. 

You Get Lower Blood Pressure

Continuing the list of complete protein facts and exciting things to know, we have a hard one for you. For years in a row, various specialists claimed that high protein intake could increase the risk of heart attacks or strokes. However, over 40 controlled trials, the increased protein intake lowered blood pressure and even reduce cholesterol. 

Speeds up Injury Recovery

Another one of the protein facts biology backs refers to a faster recovery in case of injuries when a high-calorie diet is induced. Since the protein is considered to be the building blocks of muscles, tissues, and organs, it makes perfect sense. Of course, there are other factors involved in healing faster. However, protein plays its part as well.

Protein Increase Fat burning and Boosts Metabolism

Fit girl

If you know your way around premier protein shake nutrition facts, you may already know that a high protein intake boosts your metabolism. It also leads to a higher calorie burn. It is all tied to the higher thermic effect shown by proteins over other foods. 

Protein Keeps You Fit as You Age

Common sense disclaimer needed here. You will stay fit if you also exercise and avoid the bad stuff. However, taking more protein is your best bet to reduce age-related muscle deterioration and avoid sarcopenia.

Conclusion

All right, maybe we went a bit overboard with these protein facts and gave one too many clinic studies references. However, that is the only way we can attempt and end the controversy around various nutrition myths.
