Protein is an important building block for many parts of the body like bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. Whether you want to boost up your metabolism or want to lose weight, protein plays an important role. Luckily I got a chance to attend Protinex event organize by Danone. Got close insights about importance and need of protein in our body By Nutritionists Kavita Devgan.
According to her ” Protein is highly misunderstood nutrient. A daily adult requirement is a 1gm protein per kg body weight. It’s not easy to meet the requirement via normal diet. So, there’s need to choose wisely to meet up the normal protein intake.”
As the dietary intake cannot meet up the daily requirement which may lead to many problems.
IMRB Survey says 73% of Indian population is protein deficit. And Lucknow having highest defiicency that’s 90%.
Deficiency of protein can lead to symptoms like:
- Reduce Metabolism
- Slow down process of metabolism
- Problem in weight loss
- Problem in Building body
- Reduce energy level
- Mood disorder, Disturb sleep, Lack of concentration
- Can lead to Diabetes
- Poor Immunity
Question is that how to meet the daily requirement of protein? According to Dr. Nandan Joshi, Head & Nutrition science, Danone India said ” In India, People have many myths about protein. A larger group of people believe that Green leafy vegetables are a good source of protein. And some believe that they intake daily protein needs, which is not true. Protein requirement differs over age, weight, gender and physical work etc. And consuming right Quality & Quantity of protein every day at frequent intervals like hydrolyzed protein or pre-digested protein can meet up the daily requirement.
