We’ll actually answer 3 questions for you:
Question 1: How long do I need to use protein supplements?
The answer is forever – if you want to stay healthy.
Research for anyone over 40 years old recommends 90 grams of protein each day, spread evenly over three 30-gram servings. In short, get the 90 grams – 30 – 30 – 30 for the rest of your life to stay strong and avoid getting frail.
NOTE: the research says the protein should be high quality protein with an excellent amino acid profile, and at least 2.5 grams of leucine as part of the 30 grams.
THE KEY MESSAGE: Whey is the best possible protein for staying strong as you age and maintaining muscle. Note that maintaining muscle is important for weight management. And you cannot get higher quality protein than UNJURY® Protein – which is why it is recommended at ALL of America’s Top-Rated Hospitals.
Question 2: Can I get 90 grams of protein from food?
Most people just can't. And if you do, it might have a LOT of calories.
For example, to get 90 grams of protein from each of the single foods below, you would need to consume either:
- Ground beef – 1.25 lbs!
- Eggs- 13 eggs! That’s more than a standard carton.
- Milk – ¾ of a gallon
- Almonds- almost 4 cups—that would contain 2,800+ calories!
Question 3: What if I don’t get enough protein?
Insufficient protein over time is closely linked to:
- Failure to lose or maintain weight
- Hair loss
- Loss of muscle tissue
- Reduced immune function
In contrast, high protein diets are closely linked to:
- Successful weight loss
- Successful weight maintenance
- Good/normal immune system function
