This Risky Deficiency Could Be Impacting Your Health

This Risky Deficiency Could Be Impacting Your Health

When people choose a Vegan approach to nutrition, they usually do it with the best intentions—to live a healthier life! And, healthy it can be. However, although they may be aware that they must be vigilant about making sure they get enough protein, they may not be aware of the risk a Methionine deficiency could pose.   Methionine is an essential amino acid. It is one of the building blocks of protein and it is not made by the human body, so people must get it through diet and nutrition. There are significantly higher levels of methionine in animal foods, so those who follow a plant-based diet are potentially at risk for deficiency of this crucial amino acid.   Some symptoms of methionine deficiency include edema, lethargy, liver damage, muscle loss, skin lesions, weakness, elevated cholesterol readings, apathy and even risk of depression. In addition to these potential health problems, without enough methionine in the body, the benefits of protein consumed on a plant-based diet cannot be maximized.   So, for example, if you pack your diet regularly with foods like lentils, tofu and legumes, you probably think your protein intake is sufficient. But if you are deficient in methionine, you are not reaping the full benefits of those protein sources. Not to worry though—the right supplement can provide peace of mind by ensuring your body optimizes every gram of protein.   UNJURY® Vegan Protein Enhancer is a methionine supplement. Adding the Vegan Protein Enhancer improves the amino acid profile of pea protein—and other legume-based proteins, including soy—and enhances the overall quality. Using UNJURY® Vegan Protein Enhancer with Planted™ Protein brings the PDCAAS (protein score) up to a 96 out of 100. The supplemental methionine not only enhances the effectiveness of protein powders, but also maximizes the effectiveness of all other sources of protein consumed on a plant-based diet.
