About PROTEIN20 Bars
Protein is a key nutrient for active individuals, be they endurance, gym, lifestyle or team-sport focused. While carbohydrate intake can often change day-to-day, depending on the workload of that day, protein intake should never be compromised.
There are thousands of proteins in our bodies, all of which perform a variety of daily functions to promote health, well-being and performance. We must consume adequate protein in our diet so that we have the relevant building blocks to make the new proteins required for our body to function.
When strength training, the combination of lifting weights and protein intake is used to build new proteins, especially the contractile proteins. This repeated muscle damage and protein feeding results in muscle growth.
In relation to endurance performance, protein intake is equally as important. In this situation the stress of endurance exercise creates a signal to instruct our muscles to make new proteins involved in aerobic energy production.
