A shocking new study has found many supplements on the market are fake, with researchers determining more than one-third of 44 products tested don’t contain what’s on the label. But one of the nation’s top holistic doctors notes most supplements do not pose a risk and that there are steps consumers can take to protect themselves from bogus products.

Power of Protein
Our body uses Protein to build and repair tissues and muscles, as well as make and regulate enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Also, protein is an essential building block for bones, muscles, cartilage, skin as well as blood. It is also believed to support weight loss and muscle toning.
Need for Protein Supplementation
Protein is a macronutrient, meaning your body needs relatively large quantities of it. According to DRI (Dietary Reference Intake) 0.8 grams of protein is needed per kilogram of body weight, which translates to approx. 56 grams per day for the average sedentary man and 46 grams per day for the average sedentary woman. In case of athletes, sportspersons, body builders i.e. physically more active people, the protein requirement goes up from 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight to 1.2 to 1.8 grams per kilogram of body weight. Regular healthy diet is more often than not unable to meet our body’s demands for protein, making supplementation neccessary.
