Protein = Frame, Foundation & Fuel

The importance of protein in your everyday diet should not be downplayed. Beyond avid fitness fanatics and gym junkies, protein plays an equally important role for those of us who are liable to be found behind a screen for most of our day.


What Makes Protein Intake So Important?

Protein is the building block for many functions of the body. Not only is it the core of our cells and muscles, but it is also part of our hair and nails!

Protein for healthy hair and nails

Protein deficiency can have several debilitating effects on one's health. The effects include a compromised immune system, edema (swollen, puffy skin), brittle nails & hair, and can intensify the severity of infections.

The Malaysian Health Ministry recommends following this simple formula:

1g x Body Weight (kg) = The amount of protein you need in a day


Protein-Pack Your Mornings

Breakfast is always an important part of your day. It provides your body with the fuel that it needs to get through the daily grind. Eating a balanced diet ensures that your body is getting the calories it needs to function efficiently without relying on empty calories.

What are empty calories? In short — food that provides little to no nutritional value. That means — yes, you guessed it — junk food and heavily processed food. While carbohydrates are also important for providing your body with energy, carbs have a downside of converting to sugar when not fully utilised.

So, instead of reaching for that pack of nasi lemak or mee goreng in the morning, why not try a protein-rich breakfast instead?

Better yet — why not just drink your protein? This would particularly come in handy for those who don’t have the time to fuss over a healthy and nutritious morning meal.
