Healthy protein supplements, good for your body

Protein is a vital ingredient for your body’s growth. Protein is needed for muscle growth, enzyme production and at times even energy production during starvation. These are just the commonly known benefits of protein intake. They are however not even the tip of the iceberg.

Protein shakes and protein supplements have much more to offer than just the basic roles. Protein shakes, for instance, have numerous advantages for those who consume them. Muscle repair and growth post-workout is the most common reason for using protein supplements. Using protein powders & protein shakes is a neat trick that helps boost body building efforts. Without protein powder supplements and protein shakes, most body builders would not see the gain they flaunt online.

Why you need to supplement proteins

Proteins are constantly being broken down and new ones are being manufactured within cells to produce those broken down. Nature in its very self is a self-sustaining ecosystem. The contents just go around in a cycle and may or may not end up where they initially were.

Some of the amino acids and elements from degraded protein could be used to rebuild the protein structure. A lot of it, because of wear and tear, is excreted from the body via the deamination pathway. This goes back to nature as carbon, nitrogen or their compounds for reuse by other organisms.

This cycle necessitates the need for supplementation. At times, what you have piled up on your plate is enough. At other times though, the pile is not good enough or you end up consuming way too many carbs and less proteins. If you exact your body beyond what it can withstand, you leave it with a deficit which will show as a worn out body; weight loss, emaciated and skinny. A protein shake can help you remain aesthetically satisfying and functionally competent.

There are however more benefits for using protein supplements beyond just bulking up. It helps in building immunity against different diseases through specialized proteins called antibodies, helps with weight loss and appetite suppression too.

Classification of proteins based on their functions.

Proteins serve different roles in the body including transportation of different nutrients and compounds within the body, structural proteins which are useful in building the cell structure, tissues and organs, enzymes which speed up and regulate different reactions, and storage proteins which are used in creating reserves for essential vitamins and minerals in the body, hormones which apart from regulating how we feel and our adaptation to different physiological environmental changes are also responsible for how we feel, contractile which are located within our muscle structure either for passive or active contraction to cause movement.

There are different types of proteins which all confer great benefits specific to each of these groups:

  1. Collagen – an important structural protein in our bodies, responsible for how we look.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body and here we discuss it in-depth and why it is good for your skin and bones too. Accounting for one third of all protein and 75% of dry skin, collagen is a very vital type of protein for our bodies.

It is the main structural component of connective tissues that glue and attaches different tissues, organs and bones together. Collagen is very central in our body structure as it holds stuff together thus maintaining the integrity of our body structures.

This protein produced from various raw materials which include amino acids, minerals and vitamins and fiber. Its structure is amino acids and an insoluble fibrous protein. Vitaminfood collagen supplements available on our online shop can help you reap these plus many more benefits.

  1.     Elastin

Elastin is the protein responsible for the recoil of our skin. When you pinch your skin and then it goes back to its initial length, that is because of elastin. Elastin is a special protein that allows skin to stretch and to recoil. Without it, you’d be very wrinkled.

This protein is however a maze to the world of science because the body stops producing it around puberty and what you survive on till you die is that quantity already produced. Various research is being conducted on elastin production and how to stimulate its production in adults but it’s a field developing rather slowly compared to other skin discoveries.

Vitamins and minerals have, however, been proven to work synergistically with elastin in keeping your skin young and in preserving the elastin so that you age slowly.

Vitaminfood uses pea protein for the protein shakes

Pea  protein powder is a supplement made from the yellow split pea. It is a plant-based protein that is high in iron and branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). Pea protein powder has become increasingly popular in recent years due to the growing popularity of veganism and vegetarianism.

There are many benefits of pea protein powder, including:

  • · Is a complete source of protein with all the 9 essential amino acids.
  • It is suitable for people in special diets – allergen free, vegan, gluten-free and dairy free.
  • Helps build muscle just as good as whey does and even greater muscle thickness than whey does. It is high in Branched-chain amino acids.
  • Good for heart health by lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
  • Promotes appetite and aids in weight loss – contradictory right… peas keep you full after eating heartily.
  • It undergoes one of the least processing for protein isolation and concentration. The process is actually mechanical allowing it to retain more nutrients than other chemically processed alternatives.

There are several reasons why pea protein powder is a better alternative to whey protein powder. The most common reason is that they are either vegan or lactose-intolerant and cannot tolerate whey protein.

Pea protein is also a good option for those with allergies to soy or nuts, as it is hypoallergenic. Finally, some people simply prefer the taste of pea protein over whey protein.

What to Look for in a Pea Protein Supplement

There are a few factors to consider when looking for pea protein powders in 2022, such as:


Pea protein supplements are available in a range of products, from 100 percent pea protein powders to mixtures of peas with additional nutritious, plant-based components.

Consider your own health needs while selecting a powder. If you're looking for a hypoallergenic powder, consider one that's made entirely of pea protein to avoid the additional possibility of being allergic to other components.

If you're seeking for a complete plant-based protein powder, combining pea protein with other types of protein might help to ensure that all necessary amino acids are provided, particularly methionine, which is low in pea protein.


When it comes to protein powder, you want to be sure you know what else is in it. Some companies use fillers like maltodextrin, which add calories and carbohydrates, while others provide more pure formulations. Read the ingredients carefully and pick one that helps you achieve your objectives without getting in the way of them.


It's crucial to consider the flavor and taste of a pea protein supplement. You might want something that is bland in taste or has a rich chocolate or vanilla taste. Whatever your preference, be sure to read the ingredients and seek for one that doesn't contain artificial flavors or additives.
