Let us understand why everyone needs Protein?

Our body is made up of cells & protein can be found in every cell of our body. Protein is made up of amino acids that are attached to one another in long chains. There are 20 different kinds of amino acids, and the sequence in which the different amino acids are arranged helps determine the role of that particular protein.

Role of Proteins in body functions –

1. Circulating molecules throughout the body

2. Help repair & cell regeneration.

3. Shield the body from foreign viruses & bacteria.

4. Promoting overall growth.

If our daily diet lacks an adequate amount of protein, we are missing out on basic body functions which can lead to various health problems. These problems can be as simple as the loss of muscle mass, improper functioning of the body organs, heart & lung ailments, etc.

How much protein should we consume daily?

Essential amino acids (the ones your body can’t make on its own and needs to get from food) can be found in the food you eat. To source them, you need to fill your diet with a variety of protein-rich foods, which isn’t hard to do since protein is naturally found in many nutritious foods — many of which are likely already part of your regular diet. When you eat, your body will take the protein from the food and break it down into amino acids that can be used by the body. (

How to Calculate Your Recommended Protein Intake?

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

It may vary depending on the nature of work or the intensity of the exercises.

Protein for weight loss & maintenance –

Protein has been linked to weight loss & maintenance of muscle mass. Having a rich protein diet has a positive impact on our body metabolism. A high protein diet keeps you fuller for a longer period & curbs the unnecessary cravings. As a result, we consume fewer calories which help to reduce weight by a calorie deficit.

Despite knowing all the above facts, in practicality, it’s not possible for all to consume that much amount of protein in a day due to various reasons. Indian diet specifically focuses more on carbs. For example in a typical Maharashtrian household, our daily food (lunch/dinner) consists of – Wheat chapatti, vegetables, White Rice & Dal. Taking this menu into consideration meeting the daily Protein requirement is difficult.

For this, we tend to take Protein supplements. All these advertised products are heavily marketed & the Protein content is sometimes not up to the mark. Many brands add sugar or sugar substitutes to enhance the taste of the Protein supplement.

Even I was not aware of this until I came across the best sugar-free Protein supplement - BSURE from British life sciences.

We (me & my parents) are currently consuming the dutch chocolate-flavored BSURE protein supplement & the results are visible. My parents often use to complain about joint pain & lack of strength but now that issue has reduced considerably. When we feed our body the fuel it needs, we can feel the changes within.

BSURE consists of 32 essential nutrients. It is a sugar-free supplement thus making it diabetic-friendly. It provides adequate nutrition to fulfill everyday nutritional requirements to lead a healthy life; it also helps to restore nutrition gaps in our day-to-day life.
