To understand the requirement of protein by an individual we have to first understand that we already get some protein from the food we consume and if there is some shortcoming then only our doctor will advise us some protein to be taken as a supplement from outside. This is one important point as taking protein just like that will not help in a constructive way. Protein is one of the most important ingredient in our diets and is basically a super nutrient for our body. They are the main building blocks of our body and are used to make muscles, tendons, organs, skin, enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters, and various other molecules that do important functions in our bodies.
As per the recommendations of many nutritional organisations the total daily protein requirement of a person varies in the band of 45 to 55 grams per day depending on the gender and the nature of working and whether it is active or sedentary life. If someone is already getting 35-40 grams from the food one intakes then he need to take only 10-15 grams from outside. For calculating the exact requirement of protein there are precise medical calculation where the amount of protein is calculated using the body weight. The thumb rule in this matter is to calculate the protein requirement using the formula 0.8 gram per Kg of body weight.
Those people who are consuming animal products like meat, fish, eggs, or dairy items on a regular basis, get enough protein from their food. At the same time those who are vegetarians or vegan for them it is a challenge to get so much of protein daily from their food and they might have to go for external protein supplements.
Various protein posers are available in our country for supplementing protein from the other than the food sources. Some of these brands are Dymatize Nutrition Elite Whey Protein Powder, BSN SYNTHA-6 Whey Protein Powder, MuscleBlaze Raw Whey Protein, Optimum Nutrition(ON) 100% Whey Gold Standard, MuscleBlaze Raw Whey Protein, AS-IT-IS Nutrition Whey Protein Concentrate 80%, Isopure Low Carb Whey Protein, and MuscleTech Nitrotech Performance Series.
Taking protein from outside other than the food is a matter which is to be thoroughly discussed with the doctor and advice of a nutritionalist is also required so that a correct quantity is taken for keeping the body in a healthy and balanced state.
Knowledge is power.
