Why is protein so important to our health?

The single most important antioxidant in the body is called glutathione and it is made directly from protein. 

Restrict your protein and you risk excessive aging due to low antioxidant production. And here is an important fact- you can’t replace glutathione with other antioxidants like vitamin C. Glutathione has a specific role in protecting your body and only it can perform that protective role. 

Your immune system helps fight infections and to do this it uses specific types of immune-boosting proteins. Consuming high-quality protein can be a nice boost to your immune system. Without it, your immune system would shut down and you would likely become ill from bacterial or viral infections.

What is the keto diet?

When we eat a low carbohydrate diet we have raised ketone levels in our system. Ketones are the byproducts of the breakdown of fat which is a normal process in the human body. Mostly everyone has excess fat in their bodies which makes this an extremely readily available energy source that we can utilize rather than relying on a high carbohydrate and sugar diet which can lead to obesity and Type 2 Diabetes.

One of the great things about the keto diet is that you will experience more energy and better mental focus. Our bodies use fat as the energy source rather than sugar on the keto diet causing less fatigue, less brain fog, more appetite control and reduced cravings. Weight loss, lower blood pressure, increased heart healthy HDL (good) cholesterol, increase energy levels and reduced blood sugar levels are all positive effects of following a keto diet.
