Proteins and why we need them


Many times you’ve heard that they say that you have to eat meat because it’s the only source of protein, body bilders are taking very large amounts of protein of animal origin to meet their daily needs and to get on hypertrophy. Many recreational athletes consumed a proteins in powders that contain large amounts of animal protein. Also, if you do not eat proteins you get muscle atrophy. What are proteins, which function has, what protein does it need, and how to consume it?

What are proteins?

Proteins are polypeptides made up of amino acids. Every organ, hormone and tissue is made up of proteins. That’s why it’s very important to consume protein-rich foods, but not all.

Protein of animal origin are similar to structures as humans. Mainly consuming foods of this origin, leads to various diseases, such as heart and blood vessels, diabetes …Most are fed chicken and cattle to meet their daily protein needs. These include eggs and milk and milk products. Such foods increase the acidity of our organism (pH level), which is alkaline, leading to hormone disorders (especially in women). There is a leaky gut syndrome, various autoimmune diseases, and even cancer. Casein, which is found in proteins of animal origin, even in humans, is 300x higher than ours, and we are increasingly consuming these products.

When we consume it such a diet, you also consume hormones, antibiotics that are harmful to human health.

Human being is the only mammal species on the earth’s that consumes other types of milk after breastfeeding.

This is a list of how much protein in the milk of a mother (woman) have on 100ml milk

Woman 1g
Rat 9g
Gorilla 1.4g
Donkey 1.8g
Cow 3.6g

How proteins of animal origin affect our health

Proteins of animal origin and dietary fibers

When it comes to plant proteins they also contain fibers, polynutrients, antioxidants, but not in proteins of animal origin. A high intake of dietary fiber reduces the risk of cancer in particular intestine and breast cancer, Crohn’s disease … It also reduces the risk of heart attack, reduces high cholesterol, and heart disease.

Proteins and cancer

When we consume large amounts of essential amino acids (which animals have), our body produce large amounts of insulin hormone as a growth factor of -1 (IGF1). Hormones stimulate cell division and its grow in both cell types, healthy cells and cancer cells. If the increasing factor IGF-1 is always at the highest level it leads to an increase of cancer.

Proteins TMAO (trimethylamine N-oxide)

TMAO is a substance that damages the blood vessels, inflammation, and facilitates the formation of cholesterol on the walls of the blood vessels, which is a major problem for the cardiovascular system.
It is a substance that arises mutually from the intestinal flora and food we consume. When consuming food of animal origin, it changes the intestinal flora in a way that makes it easy to create TMAO.

Proteins and Phosphorus

The meat contains a high level of phosphorus. When we consume phosphorus in large quantities, in some way our body normalizes the level of phosphorus with a hormone called fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF 23)

They found that FGF23 could be very harmful to our blood vessels. There is an increase in cardiac chambers (abnormal enlargement of the heart muscles), which leads to a heart attack, sudden death, and heart failure. Consuming proteins of animal origin leads to a change in hormones in our body and thus leads to health problems.

Proteins, Chemical Iron, and Free Radicals

Iron is the most precious mineral in our body. It has two forms. Chemical iron and non-chemical iron. Chemical iron is found in foods of animal origin, and non-chemical in plant foods.

Chemical iron can convert less reactive oxidizing agents into highly radioactive free radicals that can destroy and affect cellular structures and DNA.

Proteins and Highly sump amino acids and bone diseases

Food of animal origin is acidic. When we consume such foods, in order to neutralize our body’s acid, the body releases a certain amount of calcium from the bones, with every action of our bone fragile.

Proteins and Cholesterol

Food of animal origin contains a high percentage of proteins, as well as cholesterol. This cholesterol we dont need, because it produces a human. LDL is a bad cholesterol that settles on the walls of the blood vessels and then the glucose that is primary to energy, can not enter the cells and remains in the bloodstream. Then there is type 2 diabetes, heart disease, angina pectoris, heart attack …

Žuto LDL ( loš holesterol Zeleno HDL ( dobar holesterol )

These are some of the evidence and facts that accompany of diet animal origin. Nevertheless, people continue to consume even more, and even those who have met some of these points. In the abundance there are many products that our mother naturu give us.

Plants have all the essential essential amino acids, some in smaller% some are higer but have. After only 3 months, you will experience the difference in your body and you will be grateful to yourself that you have taken the right path to preserve and strengthen your health.
