Thursday, 11/29/12 - The Power of Protein As You Age

Protein meals and shakes play a major part of my daily regimen.  Dr. Thomas O'Bryan also recommends protein shakes for anyone who’s not getting enough protein in their daily diet.   Over the years other holistic doctors I’ve worked with have recommended protein to boost my thyroid. 

We see body builders and dieters guzzling down protein shakes (and giving the cold shoulder to breads, pastas and pastries) in an effort to bulk up or slim down. However, if you aren't on a perpetual diet or trying to pack on pounds of muscle, you might not consider how important protein is for your body and what kind of protein is best.

Los Angeles internist and physical nutritionist Melina Jampolis MD, says most women, especially as they age, are not getting enough quality protein.

"Protein is really important as we age because we have a decreased ability to absorb and utilize it as we get older. The government standards, which most women probably do meet, are the lowest amount of protein you should have and are not high enough for optimal health," she says.

Enjoy the Journey!
