Protein

What does protein do?

Protein’s key role in exercise is repairing your muscles after your workout, enhancing strength and growth. A lack of protein, or a negative nitrogen balance, will result in a longer recovery time, diminished muscle growth and feeling weak & tired.

A higher nitrogen balance enables a faster workout recovery, allowing the body to repair itself properly. A report by the APS found that endurance athletes require 1.67x more protein than the average person.

Key Roles

Protein's Key Roles?

  • Responsible for growth and repair in every cell of the body: all muscles, blood, skin, hair and nails
  • Dietary protein produces greater satiety than other macronutrients
  • Help increase bone density and reduce risk of osteoporosis
  • Maintain a positive nitrogen balance
  • Sustain lean muscle mass
  • Provide energy

It all began as a steak lover, fed up of Tupperware boxes and the countless hours wasted every night prepping for the next days snacking needs. I was always a firm believer in the phrase “fail to prepare, prepare to fail” and it was for that reason I would always carry around my protein rich snacks to keep me on the straight-and-narrow.

It was only after seeing the child of a South African friend, chewing on pieces of biltong, did it hit me…. I didn’t need to leave my one true love behind … steak ! I could recreate it as biltong … and so it began.
