The Importance of Protein in our Diets

by Hannah Charman, Product Development Manager, Nature's Sunshine Products


'Protein' is derived from the Greek word πρωτεος (proteios), meaning 'primary', 'first', 'most important', 'in the lead', or 'standing in front'


Our bodies are made up of specific elements which have to be replenished daily if we are to remain healthy. The main nutrients necessary for the body to grow, rebuild tissues and provide adequate energy include amino acids (proteins), carbohydrates, essential fatty acids (fats), vitamins, minerals, in addition to fibre, oxygen and water. Because we are unique, we each require differing quantities of these nutrients, which should be obtained from our daily diet.


The term 'protein' is derived from the Greek word πρωτεος (proteios), meaning 'primary', 'first', 'most important', 'in the lead', or 'standing in front'.  It is our most important nutrient, however, it also needs to be consumed in moderation, within a balanced diet which includes all other key nutrients.

Most of what you can see of your body, and most of what you can't, is made up of protein. Your body's need for protein is constant. Protein cannot be stored in the body so it is crucial to obtain sufficient amounts of good quality protein every day. 

When protein is consumed, the body effectively breaks down complex protein into amino acids. The body utilises these amino acids in the synthesis of a vast array of structural and enzymatic proteins. These proteins are functional, they cannot be stored in the body, and are not readily available for some other use. Should the body experience a severe protein shortage it will eventually draw on the body's own structural protein, such as skeletal muscle tissue.

Proteins are needed to build and maintain all body tissue, inside and out. They make up the enzymes and hormones that control all chemical reactions in our bodies, and regulate activities like digestion, metabolism and body temperature.  Other proteins in the blood are antibodies - your defenders against disease and infection.

Nature Sunshine's SynerProTein will help you obtain complete, high quality vegetable protein without the calories, cholesterol and fat of other protein sources.  SynerProTein is one of the most carefully formulated protein supplements available and is designed to provide high quality protein which is free from dairy, wheat, yeast, gluten and is virtually fat free.

SynerProTein is a unique low-fat formulation of non-genetically modified soya protein providing all the essential amino acids your body needs, combined with cruciferous vegetables, vitamins, minerals and herbs.  It provides 18 grams of soya protein per serving and is a great source of all 9 essential amino acids.
