Protein is an important part of your diet and is required on a daily basis. It is required by your body for preserving your muscle mass, rebuilding tissue/cells, supporting your immune system and providing the building blocks for enzymes, hormones and vitamins. Aside from this, the protein component in a meal has been shown to help with weight management, as it can keep you satiated (full). In turn, this can help to control the calories you consume. As part of a meal, protein will also help to offset any spikes in blood sugar which would be induced by carbohydrates alone.
Consuming our protein powders in your shake or as part of any meal is a convenient way to help to fill your daily protein requirements, especially if you are a vegan/vegetarian, have high protein needs or many diet restrictions.
