WHAT IS PROTEIN?

You know Fitforce, we love to inform you about what you’re ingesting and why you need it?

Proteins are large, complex molecules. They do most of the work in cells and are required for the structure, function, and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs. Proteins are made up of smaller units called amino acids, which are attached to one another in long chains. There are 20 different types of amino acids that can be combined to make a protein. Amino acids are coded by combinations of three DNA building blocks (nucleotides), determined by the sequence of genes.

A proteins make-up, function and importance are almost as impressive as pregnancy. Can we just take a second to fathom the absolute miracle of pregnancy? I mean women grow another individual inside them !

Babymama protein shake is a 100% pure whey protein supplement that may be beneficial during pregnancy and breastfeeding. This delicious shakes make it easier for you to consume your daily protein intake.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO INCREASE PROTEIN INTAKE DURING PREGNANCY?

First, you will maintain muscle mass:

Keeping your protein intake higher, or at least at a decent amount, will help you maintain your muscle mass during pregnancy. The reason you want to do this is because as you lose muscle mass and gain fat and water, your metabolism will dramatically decrease. Muscle mass keeps your metabolism working harder. If you gain weight and lose muscle, then your metabolism will be more difficult to rev back up when baby arrives. This is very helpful to maintain your weight, and keep from gaining too much.

Second, protein is needed for baby’s development:

Protein is the building blocks for your body, and for baby’s body. Protein consumption is particularly important during the second and third trimester, which is when baby needs protein more. Your body can’t create protein on its own, and many plants have various sources of protein in them.

Third, protein shakes taste amazing!

Not everything tastes good when you’re pregnant. Protein smoothies can be such a nice, sweet treat. Which helps take away your sweet cravings almost immediately. Blending your protein powder with frozen avocado, fresh spinach and fresh or frozen berries is a beautiful treat you and your baby NEED. Nutrients are really important, not just calories, which is why protein smoothies are a wonderful option to keep up your protein shake.

We’ve been through it all, the miracle of being a home to a baby, all the p content you need, a nice bio lesson and why you need Fitforce in your life. Listen to what your body needs and cater for it- you deserve it.
