Natural Factors Vegan Protein, 1kg Powder, Double Chocolate Flavour
In general, vegetarians consume less total protein than non-vegetarians; the more restrictive the diet, the greater the attention that should be given to ensuring adequate protein intake. This is especially important in pregnant women, infants, growing children, and the elderly.
Protein is a critical component of the diet and an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, blood, skin, hair, and nails. Your body uses protein to build, repair, and remodel tissues. It is also is used to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is a macronutrient, meaning that the body needs relatively large amounts of it. The body has no way of storing protein and needs new supplies in the diet regularly. Second to fat stores, protein is the largest store of energy in the body. A loss of more than 30% of body protein can result in reduced muscle strength for breathing, decreased immune function, and decreased organ function which can result in death.
