Plant protein for youthful skin
THE typical Malaysian diet these days is packed with carbohydrates from starchy rice, animal fats from red meats, trans fats and sugars from highly processed fast foods. Hence, it is difficult for an average person to get proper nutrition, especially macronutrient protein from his or her diet.
Tissue degeneration due to low protein stores in the body leads to premature ageing and some of the early signs are as follows: Puffy eyes
Swollen face, ankles and fingers
Wrinkled and dull skin Hair and nails are made of a tough protein called keratin. Hence, a protein deficiency can be marked by thinning or brittle nails and hair
Loss of physical strength
If we wish to have healthy uthful skin, hair and nails, it is y important to make sure our otein intake is sufficient and ow the best protein sources. The building blocks of otein are called amino ids. Complete protein ntains 22 different amino cids. However, nine ssential amino acids must e consumed in the diet ecause the body does not roduce them.
When a complete protein is eaten and digested, our body can select the required amino acids for the construction f new structural proteins such as collagen and elastin, which are found predominantly in the skin, bones and muscles.
Amino acids are also used to form new cells and replace worn out or dead cells in the skin, which replenish every 27 days.
A quick and easy way to get high-quality complete protein into your diet is to use a protein powder supplement. However, many protein powder supplements in the market are lacking in other essential nutrients such as fibre, calcium, magnesium and vitamin D3. These essential nutrients are important for the maintenance of good digestive and bone health.
