45% of the dry weight (water excluded) of the average human body is made up of protein.
•In addition, more than 50% of the body’s protein stores are found in muscle tissue, which makes maintenance of muscle tissue throughout life so important.
•Your body can make some amino acids. These are called non essential amino acids. We still eat them, but we don’t require them for optimal health.
•Others, like glutamine, are considered conditionally essential. Under normal circumstances, the body makes enough on its own, but under high levels of stress (workout), glutamine stores are used up faster than they can be replenished, so it becomes important to take in more glutamine or Yamamoto® Nutrition SustamiBol® (L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine which increases blood levels of L-Glutamine 224% greater than L-Glutamine itself) through supplementation.
•Other are called essential amino acids, which the body cannot make on its own. They just must be supplied through the diet.
Yamamoto® Nutrition Essential AMINO POWDER are essential amino acids produced by fermentation with added coconut water.
•All proteins are made up of amino acids but not all proteins are built with the same combination of amino acids.
•The quality of protein is based on its concentration of essential amino acids.
•Plant foods are generally low in protein, however some plant based foods do have high Biological Values (BV) because the concentration of essential amino acids is fairly high. Rice and Pea are good examples.
•Yamamoto® Nutrition EndoPRO is made from premium quality natural golden peas. It is low in fat, easily digestible and the only non acidic protein available. It’s ideal for athletes, vegans and those seeking a healthier lifestyle.

I couldn’t do this journey in my own. My online fitness groups have been my saving grace! 🙌🏻I know these girls count on me each day, and I count on them. Seeing the sweaty selfie 🤳🏻reminds me to get out of bed and hit PLAY! ▶️ I NEVER had this when I went to the gym. No one counted on me and no one cares if I worked out or not. Home workouts have saved me and these online groups have connected me with others just like me.
Do you need a change? Are you in a rut? Are you looking to start a healthy lifestyle?! Join me and my girls! You won’t regret it!
