Feel hungry even after a meal? Finding it difficult to lose weight?

Losing muscle mass and having trouble recovering from injuries and wounds?

You may not realize it, but you might have protein deficiency.

Is that serious? The symptoms mentioned may be insufficient to scare you, but neglecting it can cause serious trouble.

What is Protein Deficiency?

exercise - Protein deficiency

A protein deficit occurs when the amount of protein you consume falls short of your body’s needs.

It is estimated that one billion individuals in the globe do not get enough protein from their meals.

Up to 30% of adolescents in Central Africa and South Asia are undernourished because of a lack of protein in their diets.

According to a study, nearly half of all Singaporeans 65 and older have poor muscle mass, putting them in danger of injury or even death if they don’t consume enough protein.

In a similar study, researchers found out how crucial nutrition and supplements are.

Serious protein deficiency can lead to:

  • Edem

A hallmark of kwashiorkor is edema, which is characterized by puffy and swollen skin.

  • A Fatty Liver

If you notice that your liver is getting fat, it’s likely that you have kwashiorkor, a serious type of malnutrition.
Eventually, the condition can progress to fatty liver disease and result in inflammation, scarring of the liver, and even liver failure if left untreated.

  • Problems With Your Skin, Hair, and Nails

The skin, hair, and nails are all composed primarily of protein, and a deficiency in protein can have a negative impact on these areas.

Children with kwashiorkor have flaky or splitting skin, redness, and patches of depigmented skin, among other symptoms.

  • Loss of Muscle Mass

When it comes to protein, your muscles are the most important part of your body.

When dietary protein is depleted, the body prioritizes the preservation of more critical tissues and body functions over the preservation of skeletal muscle protein.
Thus, muscle waste occurs over time because of protein deficiency.

What should we do? One way is to eat foods that are higher in protein. Lean meat, poultry, fish, and eggs are all good sources of protein.

Older adults, on the other hand, may have difficulty chewing and swallowing, which is where supplements come in handy.

How Much Protein Do You Need?

According to the Dietary Reference Intake report for macronutrients, a sedentary adult should consume 0.8g of protein per kilogram of body weight, or 0.36g per pound.
That means that the average stationary man should consume approximately 56g of protein per day, while the average woman should consume approximately 46g.

This is why a supplement drink like ResourceĀ® Protein is important to supplement your protein intake.

ResourceĀ® Protein is available in vanilla and chocolate flavors.

What Are the Benefits of Including Protein In Your Diet?

Along with carbohydrates and fat, protein is a macronutrient.
It serves the following functions in your body:

  • Your muscles, bones, skin, and hair are all made up primarily of protein. The repair and replacement of these tissues with new protein is a continuous process.
  • Cells and organs in your body communicate with each other through chemical messenger proteins known as hormones.
  • Most enzymes are proteins, and they are responsible for thousands of chemical reactions occurring all over your body.
  • Some proteins aid in the transport and storage of essential molecules. Hemoglobin, for example, is a protein that transports oxygen to your cells.
