What is protein?


Proteins are composed of building blocks called amino acids. These subunits are linked together by peptide bonds to form chains that can be straight lines, or branched like the sub-branches on a tree. When we eat protein the body must break these peptide bonds in the digestive tract using proteases. Then single amino acids, or amino acids in short chains (called peptides), are absorbed through the gut, into the body, where they are used as building blocks to create whatever protein the body needs.

Essential Amino Acids


Some amino acids are considered "non-essential". This means that we do not need to ingest these amino acids, because our bodies can biosynthesize them using the skeleton of other amino acids. So long as the body gets sufficient protein, these amino acids are not required. The amino acids that the body cannot produce itself need to be taken in through the diet, and are called "essential" amino acids. There are 9 essential amino acids: isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, histidine, and valine. Some amino acids are "conditionally essential", meaning that certain populations who naturally don't make enough, or all humans under certain conditions, may require certain dietary intake to meet their needs. Some examples of conditionally essential amino acids are: arginine, glutamine, cysteine, and glycine.

Protein Malnutrition


Protein is an easily available energy source for the body. When insufficient protein is ingested in the diet, or insufficient calories are taken in, the body will catabolize protein from muscle mass and then eventually from the organs to cover the deficit. This breakdown of body tissue can even happen before exhausting fat reserves. As protein levels drop, the body will prioritize protein usage to enzymes and signaling molecules to continue proper bodily function, and will catabolize other tissues to do so. As such, insufficient protein or calorie intake results in protein malnutrition, which causes muscle wasting, and eventually can lead to the breakdown of organs, and tissues. Eventually this causes a condition known as Kwashiorkor, which causes diarrhea, edema (swelling) and a large protruding belly.

Protein and Weight Loss


It is important to note the connection between low calorie diets and loss of muscle mass. Those individuals seeking to lose weight who overly restrict their dietary intake will ultimately lower their muscle mass. This is counterproductive, as our muscles are the body tissue that burns the most calories by weight. From a biological perspective, the body's response makes sense; when food is scarce, reducing the amount of calorie burning tissue you have, allows you to live with lesser requirements until food can be found again. In modern society, this leads to the inability to lose weight despite a calorie-restricted diet. Recently, the popularity of high protein diets has made supplementation of protein popular for weight loss. When protein is ingested with carbohydrate, it slows the rate at which sugar enters the body. By avoiding spikes in blood sugar, protein minimizes the storage of sugar as fat. Individuals with blood sugar imbalances, like diabetes and hypoglycemia, will benefit from protein's regulation of blood sugar. Because protein also builds muscle tissue, which burns more energy than other body tissue, it can also help weight loss.

4 out of 5 stars Garden of Life Natural Raw Protein - Surprisingly good!
by from Brantford, ON on 30/6/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
I have never been a fan of flavored protein drinks and they leave a terrible aftertaste. But this one Garden of Life Raw Protein is good. Fresh and natural tasting and having the sweet taste of rice. Mixing it with almond milk is also tasty and can be combined with Great Greens and juice. Just experiment with your taste buds, add to a blender smoothie or whatever. Just get them in you. In my opinion it is very hard to find good supplements. Garden of Life is quality, that you can taste and is not covered up by a lot of unnecessary flavors.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality
by from Montréal,CA on 23/5/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
Great taste, incredible ingredients quality. Use 3/4 of the spoon if you want it to last the whole month. It tends to make me pee with cold water, so I use half hot water, half cold water.
