Most people probably have never really given much thought to which proteins are best for them, unless you are like a nurse that I know, who is actually allergic to chicken!
Everyone needs protein, and you especially need it if you are trying to lose weight, working out to build muscle, and those who are vegetarians and vegans need to make extra sure they are getting enough vegetable based protein. Protein is essential for keeping our blood sugars stable, provide us with energy and supports our metabolism. People who do not have enough protein will usually experience poor concentration or difficulty learning, have a hard time losing weight, trouble gaining muscle, suffer from a slow metabolism, mood swings, may have a pale complexion and low immunity to name a few symptoms.
The truth is that there may be a particular type of protein that you should avoid depending on if you have a sensitivity or allergy to it. The problem is that most of the time, a food sensitivity is hard to detect because the symptoms may show up hours or up to days later making it hard to figure out. The good news is that you can find out exactly what proteins are perfect for you just by testing. You will be able to know whether you have sensitivities to not only certain proteins but also up to 184 different types of foods including grains, nuts, beans, fruits and vegetables! There are so many choices for protein whether it be through organic poultry or meat, cheese, kefir, legumes such as lentils, protein powders, and much more. You just need to know which proteins are best for YOU and now you can with our Food Intolerance test! You can also see what your protein levels are too through our Comprehensive Labcorp blood testing too!
