Proteins

What are the health benefits?

Protein is divided into 9 essential amino acids and 11 non-essential amino acids. The 9 essential amino acids (that our body can only get through foods and drinks) carry vital functions throughout our body.

Leucine controls blood sugar levels and helps in growth and development through the production of the human growth hormone (HGH). Additionally, it improves muscle growth and strength and also improves skin health. 

Isoleucine is critical for growth, immunity, protein metabolism, fatty acid metabolism and glucose transportation. It can improve the immune system, including immune organs, cells and reactive substances.

Lysine treats cold sores and provides protection against them and improves calcium absorption and retention. It further improves wound healing by helping create collagen.
 
Histidine intake improves cognitive function. It is used for rheumatoid arthritis, allergic diseases, ulcers, and anaemia caused by kidney failure or kidney dialysis.

Methionine improves the tone and elasticity of the skin, promotes healthy hair and strengthens the nails. It is an antioxidant that helps protect the body from damage caused by ionizing radiation. 

Threonine is a significant part of structural proteins, such as collagen and elastin, which are important components of your skin and connective tissue. Further, it supports digestive health, boosts the immune system and improves muscle strength.

Phenylalanine is involved in the production of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine, which are essential for the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. It also helps with the production of the pigment melanin, which gives colour to the skin, hair, and eyes.

Tryptophan is an effective sleep aid. Your body changes L-tryptophan into a brain chemical called serotonin that helps control your mood and sleep. 

Valine is essential for mental focus, muscle coordination, and emotional calm. It also helps build muscle by bringing more glucose to the muscles as they are stressed and working.

Which are the food sources?

Fish, seafood, white meat poultry, soy, eggs, beans, milk and cheese.
