Why is Protein So Important?

Why is Protein So Important?

Protein seems to be quite a buzz word lately. Many diet plans focus on protein and tout how beneficial it is, but sometimes the message can be vague and can leave people wondering exactly why protein matters so much. For people who are experiencing plateaus and other challenges on their weight loss journey, learning about this cornerstone macronutrient will pay off.   With or without Weight Loss Surgery, protein is the foundation for weight loss success. It keeps you satisfied longer and enables your body to build lean muscle that burns calories, even at rest. And its value doesn’t end at successful weight loss and maintenance, ideal levels of protein are closely linked to normal immune function, active metabolism and stable blood sugar. Conversely, insufficient protein is closely linked to failure to lose or maintain weight, hair loss, muscle tissue loss, and reduced immune function. So, it’s clear that protein should be part of your long-term plan to stay healthy.   Patients sometimes tell us that their surgeon or another healthcare practitioner has urged them to discontinue the use of protein supplements. However, at the same time they are told it is essential to get 90 – 100 grams of high quality protein every day. This is very true, but nearly impossible to accomplish through food alone (and still meet weight loss or maintenance goals). The extra calories someone would need to consume to get the necessary amount of protein from food is substantial!   UNJURY® is made with Whey Protein Isolate, the most filtered and purest protein available. Each serving has only 90-100 calories, 21 grams of protein, 0 grams of fat and a negligible amount of lactose. It contains all of the essential amino acids (including Leucine) needed to help maintain lean muscle and aid in weight loss. And, unlike supplements that are made with lower quality Whey Protein Concentrate, you won’t experience any chalky or gritty consistency—and no unpleasant aftertaste!   Since UNJURY is not a meal replacement, it can be easily incorporated into a daily nutrition plan. No need to ask “time to drink a shake, or eat food?” There are many ways to include UNJURY as a protein source during mealtime. Using 3-5 servings a day will yield many health benefits, but it will also make people more successful on their journey toward optimal health. When they are not meeting their goals by getting all of their protein from food, it’s time to give UNJURY a try and see the difference it can make!
