Why is it important for women to consume protein?
The importance of protein in the diets of women is becoming more greatly understood throughout Australia and the wider world. This doesn’t just mean athletes undertaking strenuous workouts and training regimes; proteins are the body’s second most abundant component, and responsible for a variety of critical functions, from building tissues, to maintaining proper muscle repair.
Protein is critical for achieving fitness goals including building lean muscle, losing weight, and maintaining overall health.
Some of the benefits of protein for women include:
- Better balance of sugar levels and hormone regulation
- Lowering the amount of muscle soreness during recovery periods
- Boosting energy levels
- Curbing hunger
- Improving oxygenation of the blood
- Aiding in smoother digestive processes
We all know we need well-balanced, nutrient-rich meals, but this can be easier said than done, which is why protein supplements designed specifically for women are so helpful.
How can women’s protein powders, shakes & supplements improve my fitness?
Research indicates consuming the appropriate amount of protein will aid in boosting women’s metabolic rate, therefore increasing the number of calories burned during exercise and reducing appetite, supporting continued weight loss.
From plant-based protein powder & shakes made from 100% pure, natural, non-GMO organic plant protein, to high protein fat burning supplements, Maxine’s has an expansive selection ready to help you reach your fitness goals.
How much protein do women need to consume each day?
The general adult women’s protein intake guideline provided by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) is a minimum of around 46-56 grams. This recommended daily protein intake can vary depending on factors like age, weight, physical activity level and overall health.
Protein intake is particularly important for women looking to build muscle. A common guideline for muscle building is to consume around 1.3 to 2.2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day.
For example, if a woman weighs 68 kilograms, her protein intake for muscle building might range from 90 to 150 grams of protein per day.
It's worth noting that exceeding protein recommendations excessively does not necessarily lead to additional muscle gain, as other factors such as overall calorie intake, training program, and recovery also play significant roles.
It's also important to note that these recommendations are based on average needs and may not be suitable for everyone. Some individuals, such as athletes or pregnant and breastfeeding women, may require higher protein intakes to support their increased physical demands and promote optimal health.
If you have specific dietary or health concerns, it is advisable to consult with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian who can provide personalised recommendations based on your individual needs and goals.
