Are You Getting Enough Protein in your Diet?

Did you know that aside from water, protein is the most abundant compound found in the human body?  Protein is found in every cell and tissue, and along with healthy fats, protein plays many critical roles in keeping you alive and healthy. Without it, you would lack the building blocks needed for all tissue repair, critical enzymes and hormones you need for all of your metabolic functions, and antibodies that help your body defend against infections. Protein is also important for growth and development in children, teens, and pregnant women.

Proteins are one of the most important nutrients required by your body and must be consumed in adequate quantity and quality in your diet. Protein foods are broken down into parts called amino acids during digestion. The human body needs a number of amino acids in large enough amounts to maintain good health. Amino acids are found in animal sources such as meats, milk, fish, and eggs. They are also found in plant sources such as soy, beans, dal, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables, and some grains (such as wheat germ and quinoa).

Unfortunately, many protein sources such as red meat, cheese, eggs and whole milk contain high levels of saturated fat, which is a major risk factor for heart disease and some types of cancer if taken in excess. Another challenge is that conventional Indian cooking, especially for vegetarians requires a lot of frying and roasting which can sometimes lead to loss of nutrients from the vegetables.

QNet’s Nutriplus Protein Powder developed by Duport®, the world leader in innovative soy-based technologies and ingredients is a great-tasting, high quality, 100% vegetarian source of protein from soy which serves as the building blocks to keep your body developing and functioning at an optimal level.

Soy protein has received increased attention in recent years among consumers, researchers, and the media. Soy protein comes from soybeans and offers multiple health benefits, some of which are just beginning to be discovered. Soy is the only plant-based protein considered to be a high-quality protein, containing all of the essential amino acids in the right ratios needed to support growth and development.

Results from more than 50 studies have provided scientific evidence of the cholesterol-lowering benefits of soy protein in the diet. Twenty-five to 50 grams of isolated soy protein is effective in lowering total cholesterol and LDL the ‘bad’ cholesterol while maintaining HDL the ‘good’ cholesterol.

So effective is soy protein at lowering cholesterol and tri-glycerides and preventing narrowing of the arteries that the U.S. FDA has allowed a health claim that states, Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease”.1 

Nutriplus Protein Power is specifically formulated with high quality soy protein isolate, a complete protein with all the amino acids (which cannot be produced by the human body) essential for enhanced nutrition and good health. It is also very low in saturated fat and cholesterol, making it an attractive alternative protein ingredient for meat- and dairy-based products.

QNet customer Shoumik De is a big fan of Nutriplus Protein Powder after it helped his uncle.

My experience with Nutriplus has been amazing. I am using it for some time now. Even my family uses it. It was been really good for my uncle especially, who is quite old now and suffers from high cholesterol. Daily consumption of Nutriplus has kept his cholesterol under control. Also, we can see little more energy in his daily life. 

Retired Army Officer Ranvir Singh has made Nutriplus Protein Powder a part of his family’s daily diet.
With such wonderful health benefits that nutriplus™ provides, I have made it an essential part of the diet in our family. We have already started feeling the positive changes and the benefits of its use. Thank you QNET from the bottom of my heart, for showing concern for our health.

Do you need any more reasons to include soy protein in your diet?
