Why is Protein a Good Anti-Aging Booster?
When your body has a constant supply of good quality protein, it has a steady and even flow of essential sugars to your blood stream. The protein can nourish and satisfy the individual requirements of the cells of a healthy brain and a healthy body.
This steady but slow release of glucose into your blood stream is a good thing. It helps your body feel satisfied and energized. And it keeps your brain alert.
From an anti-aging standpoint, eating protein also causes little or no rise in your body’s insulin levels. Again this is a good thing, as elevated insulin levels are the number one cause of accelerated aging.
