High-quality, protein-rich food from IronMaxx®
Proteins, or proteins, are basic building blocks of our organism.
Muscles, heart and brain, skin, hair and nails are mostly made of proteins. Proteins are found in every cell of our body. In all organs, proteins are essential for important metabolic processes. In summary: Without proteins no life! Protein proteins are composed of proteinogenic (protein-forming) amino acids in a chain structure. In humans, there are 20 amino acids that are synthesized in the body in various combinations to proteins - normally a protein contains 100 - 300 amino acids in different order, up to over a thousand amino acids in complex proteins such as myosin, which, together with actin, For example, is responsible for the muscle contraction and is therefore also referred to as "motor protein". Taking protein * (protein) daily in sufficient quantity is crucial for a healthy, vital life.
By the way, protein is a true synonym for protein. The term "protein" is used rather colloquially, but means the same thing.
Proteins and essential amino acids
Of the 20 amino acids that our organism uses to make proteins , eight amino acids are called essential because they can not be produced by our body. They must be supplied by a protein-rich diet containing these specific amino acids. In short, these protein building blocks are known under EAAs * .
* from the English: essential amino acids = essential amino acids
Egg whites | Proteins in top quality
High- protein food has become increasingly popular, due in part to the low carb trend of recent years. Protein powder and protein supplements in food are now omnipresent. There are good reasons for this: as described, proteins are an indispensable component of nutrition and, if you look at the topic from the perspective of fitness and sports nutrition, an important supplement for muscle growth and muscle function. In addition, a protein-rich diet helps you lose weight during a diet. A high quality and good bioavailability of the proteins is highly recommended!

Protein | Protein - how much do I need?
Less meat consumption from vegetarian and vegan diets, the second major trend of recent years, does not necessarily lead to a protein deficiency, but the protein balance should be closely monitored . For example, chicken, lamb and beef have about 25g of protein per 100g, tomatoes or zucchini but only about 1g per 100g. In order to maintain the muscles and their performance, in endurance sports, or in competitive sports in general and in bodybuilding, or -shaping dietary supplements with high protein content make sense, and for a sustainable muscle , the extra portion of protein is even without alternative.
Egg whites | Proteins - recommended amount for athletes per day
The German Nutrition Society recommends a daily intake of protein in amounts between 0.8g and 1.0g per kilogram of body weight. It is based on the normal weight, without any special physical activity.
For endurance athletes, competitive athletes and strength athletes, however, higher levels are recommended by sports experts and nutritionists. Endurance athletes are well supplied with about 2g of protein per kilogram of body weight, strength athletes in the muscle building phase can take up to 2.5g daily, and in the muscle maintenance phase, about 2g of protein per kilogram of body weight are recommended.
