Protein is one of the major nutrients in our food and a key element of our diet. Protein contributes to a growth in muscle mass, maintenance of normal bones and it is a component of every cell in our bodies.
Protein is a macronutrient that is vital to virtually every cell in the body. It is vital for our body in order to manufacture important molecules, like hormones and enzymes, and to build and maintain muscle tissue. Protein is also great at satisfying hunger. Your body is constantly assembling, breaking down and using protein, so it’s important to include enough protein in the diet every day to replace what is being used. Herbalife Nutrition Philosophy suggests that up to 30% of your daily calorie intake comes from protein, which can include protein sourced from plants, such as soybeans, and animal, like poultry, fish and eggs.
Whilst our individual requirements may vary, we need to ensure that we meet our protein needs daily, and that the essential amino acids come from our diet and not from our muscles. With a range of shakes, bars and supplements, Herbalife Nutrition high protein products will help you improve your daily protein intake and achieve your level of optimum nutrition.
