We all know daily protein intake is an important part of healthy living. The origin of the word protein is one of the first clues to appreciating just how important protein is to our health. It’s derived from the Greek word “proteios” meaning "holding first place" or "of primary importance." That makes sense when you consider that there is more protein in our body than any other substance except water.
When it comes to protein requirements, there is no “One Size Fits All.” Everyone has individual protein requirements based on their general state of health and activity level. Minimum requirements set by the World Health Organization (WHO) are .75 g of good quality protein per kilogram of body weight. This means that a person with a normal weight of 70 kg needs about 50 grams of protein in their daily diet.
The effects of not getting enough protein can be subtle. Low energy, craving sweets, weight gain and recurring colds are just a few of the many signs indicating you may need more protein in your daily diet. Suboptimal protein consumption can also lead to growth and developmental abnormalities in children; impaired tissue development; problems with hair, skin, nails; mental
depression; muscle weakness (including the heart); lowered resistance to infections due to immune deficiency; slow healing of wounds; delayed recovery from disease and surgery; decreased nutrient transport in the body; hair loss; prematurely gray hair; and joint inflammation. Protein loss also commonly occurs due to stress; surgery; hemorrhage; wounds; strenuous physical exercise and prolonged illness.
Recent research points increasingly to protein as a key factor in promoting weight loss in overweight and obese people. An article published in the May 2008 edition of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition titled “Protein, weight management, and satiety” surmises that protein generally satisfies the appetite to a greater extent than carbohydrates and fats. The authors
also concluded that higher protein diets increased thermogenesis and muscle growth.
