Why is protein so important?

Posted on August 20, 2015 by Melanie Brown

Have you ever considered why protein is so important in our daily diet?

Collagen is the tissue which holds the skin and other cells in the body together. This is made up of protein.

Collagen is one of the most important proteins in the body and gives the skin tone.

If you don’t have enough protein in your diet, your skin will start to sag and this leads to wrinkles.

Having protein in our diet means that there is a constant supply to deal with skin repair and renewal.

So what are the signs that you are not getting enough protein in your diet?

  • Puffy bags under the eye
  • Sagging skin
  • Water retention
  • Weak hair and nails

What are good sources of protein?

  • Grass fed meat
  • Organic chicken
  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Nuts
  • Dairy products

So if you want gorgeous looking skin, be sure to have a good protein content in your diet.
