Protein is the building blocks needed for billions of cells in our bodies. Not only does it rebuild and regenerate the body’s tissues, protein is also needed for optimal health and weight management. Composed of several amino acids, protein has eight essential amino acids that we must acquire from food or alternate sources like protein powder. Lack of protein can lead to such health problems as osteoporosis, soft weak nails, thinning hair, and wrinkled skin, heart problems, poor digestion, a weakened immune system and poor wound healing to name a few. There are several options for protein supplementation including whey protein, fermented soy, brown rice, hemp, pea and combinations of different vegetable based proteins. We carry a large selection of protein powders, meal replacements and bars. Come talk to our staff to help choose the best protein for you.
