Curb cravings, stay lean & maintain a healthy weight with Beauty Protein!
Eating a protein-enriched diet has a number of health benefits including, healthy skin & hair, strong nails, assists the skin’s ability to retain water, increases antioxidant levels in your diet, and is great for recovery post-exercise. But for those concerned with weight management, Protein is the building block of your muscles and can boost your metabolism, reduce appetite and help regulate weight hormones.
Protein is the single most important nutrient for weight management and for building lean muscle mass.
5 reasons why protein is good for weight management:
FEEL FULLER FOR LONGER
Protein helps you feel fuller for longer. Having protein slows down digestion making us feel more satisfied and less likely to go back for seconds. Numerous studies have shown that when people increase their protein intake, they start eating fewer calories. So, high protein diets not only have a metabolic advantage – they also have an “appetite advantage’, making it much easier to cut calories!
PROTEIN REGULATES WEIGHT HORMONES
Your weight is actively regulated by your brain, particularly an area called the hypothalamus. In order for your brain to determine how much to eat, it processes different signals. Some of the most important signals to the brain are hormones that change in response to feeding. A higher protein intake actually increases levels of the satiety (appetite – reducing) hormones GLP-1, peptide YY and cholecystokinin, while reducing your levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin. What does this mean? a reduction in the hunger hormone.
GOT HEMP? MINI BUT MIGHTY!
Of all the proteins in the world. we believe hemp is the purest and most complete form of protein available. Vida Glow’s key ingredient is Hemp which contains all 9 essential amino acids, a perfect ratio of omega 3s and 6s and GLA, hemp is a nutrient-dense plant-based protein wonder, which is also high in fibre which helps you feel full while reducing cravings.
CURVE SUGAR CRAVINGS
Protein also helps to keep blood glucose levels steady and greatly aids in the production of serotonin, the ‘happiness hormone’, which plays an essential role in the regulation of our appetite, thus curving cravings.
A protein enriched diet has been shown to boost metabolism and increase the number of calories burned per day. In fact, 20-30% the calories found in protein are burned while the body is digesting and metabolizing protein.
*Although Beauty Protein is a great way to curb sugar cravings and stay lean, it should be taken in combination with a healthy diet and alongside regular exercise to control weight management and achieve your training goals.
