Mitchell’s Bone Broth Protein Powder
Protein is an incredibly important nutrient! You may know about protein’s role in building and repairing muscles, but it goes further than that; Proteins are the key working molecules and building blocks in ALL of our body’s cells! Proteins are also the building blocks of hormones that maintain reproductive health, regulate menstruation, mood, and fertility.
It is well known that protein needs increase with exercise output. But protein needs also increase during menstruation, throughout prenancy, while breast feeding, throughout menopause, and in general, as we age.
Getting enough protein is vital for overall health, and many women are not consuming enough protein to really thrive!
Accoriding to Dr Stacey Sims; “…women should aim for 1.7 to 2.4 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day. (1 kilogram = 2.2 pounds, so to figure your weight in lbs to kg, just divide by 2.2.) Women in the menopause transition should target the higher end of that range (2.2 to 2.4 grams per kilogram), aiming for the lower end on easier days and the higher end on very heavy training days. Research also indicates that when undergoing a calorie deficit, higher levels of protein intake help you keep your lean mass, and lose body fat.”
Functional Nutritionist Shelley Gawith advocates similar levels (2.2 to 2.4 grams per kilogram) for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Mitchells Bone Broth Protein Powder is a simple way to increase your overal protein intake. You can easily add it to your morning coffee, cacao or smoothie – without the gritty texture of typical protein powders.
