How much protein do adults really need to be healthy? The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for protein is a modest 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. The RDA is the amount of a nutrient you need to meet your basic nutritional requirements. In a sense, it’s the minimum amount you need to keep your immune responses healthy, adding “life to your years” through support of the muscle integrity for strength as we age.
To determine your daily protein intake, multiply your weight in pounds by 0.36. For a 50-year-old woman who weighs 140 pounds and is sedentary (doesn’t exercise), that translates into approximately 50 grams of protein per day – formula: 0.36 x 140 = 50.4 gr.
Whey is the ideal protein source to help you achieve your recommended daily intake because it’s absorbed immediately – flooding your muscles with key amino acids.
Most individuals hear the words, “amino acids” yet have not been educated as to what their actual role is in human health, unless they are a health professional.
Amino acids are molecules that combine to form proteins – the building blocks of life.
According to research from MedLinePlus, as proteins are digested or broken down, amino acids are left. The human body uses them to make proteins to help the body break down food for better digestion and absorption, growth, repair of body tissues, and a source of energy.
Amino acids are classified into three groups: Essential amino acids, Non-essential amino acids, Conditional amino acids.
Essential amino acids cannot be made by the body. As a result, they must come from food.
The 9 essential amino acids are: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine.
Natural Premium Whey Protein contains not only 9 essential amino acids but also an additional 9 for a total of 18…a mega “Whey” to boost overall health and longevity. In addition, it provides 24 gr. of protein to help maintain adequate levels of energy, stamina, recovery and immunity.
