What are plant proteins and what are the benefits?

 

What are plant proteins and what are the benefits?

Many types of foods include plant proteins. For example: beans, avocados, nuts and seeds such as flax seeds just to name a few. There are many health benefits for consuming plant based proteins and here are a few*:

- better assimilation both in the digestive system and at the cellular level

- causes less inflammation compared to animal protein.

It is important to remember that proteins provide amino acids to the human body and that plant based proteins do not provide a ''complete form'' of protein.  For that reason, it is important to make sure that you incorporate a variety of plant based proteins in each meal.  For example, mix beans with avocados**
