Hidden Causes of Excessive Yawning

1-inst-excessive-yawning-34274

Occasional yawing is quite natural. You should, however, start taking notice when excessive yawning becomes part of your daily routine. It may very well be your body’s way of alerting you to an underlying problem.

What Happens When You Yawn?

Yawning is an involuntary process. Your mouth opens wide, and you breathe in air, filling your lungs. The eardrums stretch and extra oxygen are carried to the brain and other parts of the body through the blood, making you more alert. Sometimes a yawn is of short duration. Other times, it is a long and drawn-out, accompanied by stretching.

We are all subject to the occasional yawn throughout the day, but most of the time, there are certain conditions during which we yawn.

We yawn before bedtime when we are tired, and the brain starts slowing down. We yawn when we wake up in the morning. It is almost as if this triggers our body to get into “wake up mode”. We also tend to yawn when we get bored, as the brain becomes less stimulated. In all these instances, yawning is a way to force blood, and thus oxygen, to the brain in order to increase alertness.

Lastly, we often yawn when we see someone else yawn, or when we read about the topic. Have you yawned yet?

The Physiology of Yawning

When you yawn, the thoracic muscles in your chest, your diaphragm, your larynx (in your throat), and the palate of your mouth are all involved. Yawning also helps wet your lung’s air sacs. Air is inhaled, accompanied by a stretching of the eardrums, followed by an exhalation. There is, so far, much speculation about what causes this and not enough research to be conclusive.

We do not always yawn when we are tired. You may run a marathon and be deathly tired afterward, but not yawn. Too little oxygen to the brain may also not be a deciding factor for yawning. This is because the lungs are not usually filled to their full capacity, although deep breathing, of its own accord, does tend to keep your lungs healthy. For those in a catabolic state, with reduced rib cage expansion resulting in less oxygen in the blood, yawning may help this issue, but the majority of people require a different explanation for yawning.

Although people are prone to excessive yawning when bored, more recent studies show that the most likely reason for yawning is the body’s effort to cool down your brain. The most recent, and possibly best scientifically based study, points to this, indicating that people tend to yawn more in summer than winter, possibly due to the brain using this reaction in order to cool down.

Excessive Yawning

Yawning is normal. However, excessive yawning can be due to certain medical conditions.

One cause is what is termed a “vasovagal reaction”. Besides yawning, symptoms often associated with vasovagal reactions include blurred vision, a clammy sweat, lightheadedness, pale skin, nausea, and tunnel vision. Vasovagal reactions happen when part of your nervous system that sees the regulation of blood pressure and heart rate is compromised and no longer responds as it should. This is often seen in stressful situations or when you feel you are in danger. The result is that your heart rate slows down, the blood vessels in your legs dilate, excessive blood moves into your legs, and your blood pressure drops. This drop in heart rate and blood pressure results in less blood reaching the brain. The body may automatically try to up its oxygen intake (by means of yawning) in order to ensure oxygen reaches the brain.

A vasovagal reaction and the accompanying excessive yawning may also be due to internal bleeding in the aorta area or indicate that you are about to have a heart attack or have heart issues.

Common causes of excessive yawning

The most common reasons for excessive yawning include the following:

    • A vasovagal reaction – As has been mentioned, a vasovagal reaction often has excessive yawning as a symptom.
    • Fatigue – Often, when tired, we start yawning excessively. The extra oxygen released into the blood is the body’s way of trying to stay alert.

How medications effect excessive yawning

  • Medications – Certain medications can lead to excessive yawning, mainly because they make you sleepy. These medications include antihistamines, certain pain medications, antidepressants, and selective serotonin uptake inhibitors.
  • Liver disease – The last stages of liver failure are often accompanied by excessive yawning. One of the possible causes for this reaction is the accompanying fatigue experienced during this time.
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS) – Studies indicate that those who suffer from MS have a tendency towards excessive yawning. It seems yawning provides symptomatic relief from MS. Additionally, those with MS also tend to have a thermoregulatory dysfunction whereby they are unable to control their body temperature. Yawning tends to cool the body down.
  • Epilepsy – Epileptic seizures can result in permanent brain damage that irritates the part of the brain sending out certain signals, leading to excessive yawning. This, however, is rare.
  • Sleeping disorders – Sleeping disorders such as insomnia or sleep apnea may cause constant tiredness, leading to excessive yawning throughout the day.
  • Brain dysfunctions – Research indicates that a brain tumor or stroke may lead to excessive yawning and can be linked to lesions in the brain stem. Yawning can also result from compression of the hypothalamus or the pituitary gland.
  • Overstimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system – The parasympathetic nervous system is a division of the autonomous nervous system. It is primarily concerned with slowing down the heart rate, conserving energy, and overseeing the activity of different glands. When this system is compromised, it often leads to excessive yawning.
  • Hypoglycemia – Excessive yawning is one of the first signals of hypoglycemia in diabetics.

Theories About What Makes You Yawn

There has been much speculation as to why people yawn. Hippocrates, for example, in 400 B.C. suggested that yawning might be a response to fever, in order to get rid of any bad air in the body. He likened the process to that of steam escaping from a pot of boiling water.

Centuries later in 1923, British neurologist Sir Francis Walshe noticed that partially paralyzed patients seem to regain certain motor functions during the few second duration of a yawn. He found certain patients who were unable to flex their fingers could do so when yawning. He concluded that the yawning process was a very primitive process in the brain and something we have no conscious control over.

Johanna de Vries, an obstetrics professor in Amsterdam, observed that one of the first things humans do, even during the fetal stage, is a yawn. Robert Provine, a neuroscientist, indicated that yawning is indeed a spontaneous action and part of our biological programming. We have no control over it.

Yawning due to hunger, fatigue, and boredom

As recently as 2011, Provine, a psychologist, made the argument that yawning served as one of the body’s cooling mechanisms, most especially for the brain. Studies conducted by Provine show that we have a tendency to yawn after waking, and before going to bed. We also tend towards excessive yawning when bored, while hunger tends to bring on about as well.

Staying focused and excessive yawning

 

There are thus, generally speaking, three possible reasons for excessive yawning. It happens when our attention drifts and we find it increasingly difficult to stay focused – when we are hungry, when we are bored, and when we are tired. Yawning may thus be a signal of the body, telling it that it needs to become more alert.

Ronald Baenninger, a psychologist at Temple University, found that his test subjects tended to yawn more frequently when they had no stimulation. Yawning, he noticed, was usually followed by an increase in physiological activities, which, according to him, would suggest that the body has become more alert.

Provine mentioned that people tend to yawn due to stress, citing examples of athletes yawning before taking part in an athletic event and concert violinists yawning before they play a concerto. His research also observed soldiers making their first jump from an airplane. They tended to yawn before making the jump. This may indicate that yawning is a signal that a physiological change is taking place.

However, the issue is too complex to make sweepingly ascribe yawning to only boredom, hunger, or fatigue. Yawning can also be a social thing.

Contagious yawning

Contagious yawning is commonplace. A family member might yawn, and you find yourself following. Interestingly, research indicates that we tend to yawn after someone close to us does. We are more likely to yawn after a sibling than an acquaintance, but more likely to yawn after an acquaintance than a stranger. The closer the bond, the more likely we are to yawn when someone else does.

This type of yawning also seems limited by species. For example, you might catch a yawn from another human, but not necessarily from your dog. This seems to reflect in animals as well. Studies with chimpanzees found that, when they were shown videos of other chimpanzees yawning, they tended to yawn when seeing familiar chimpanzees yawn, but not unfamiliar ones. The same applied when the studies were conducted on baboons. This suggests that social bonds play an important role when it concerns the incidence of contagious yawning.

Excessive yawning may be contagious

 

Age also seems to be a factor when it comes to contagious yawning. Studies found that older people were less likely to start yawning when someone else did. Personality issues such as empathy and aloofness were ruled out. This implies something else may be at work, and it may be a primitive form of social behavior or communication that you are bored, tired, anxious, or hungry, for example.

This ties in with her behavior, where it keeps all members of the herd alert on one hand, while the accompanying stretching keeps the body ready for action.

Yawning also seems to be a sympathy trigger, as contagious yawning, according to certain studies, tends to come to the fore at the same age children start identifying with the emotions of others (around four to five years of age), although autistic children do not tend to show this behavior.

Heat as a yawning mechanism

Hippocrates may have got it half-right, according to recent research from the University of Vienna. Two sets of subjects were used in their research, one group from Austria, and the other from Arizona, U.S.A. These two areas were chosen specifically for temperature differences. The hypothesis was that the brain does not function at its optimal level when exposed to high temperatures, and yawning is a way for the body to cool down the brain.

Although we do tend to yawn when we are tired, there may very well be a physiological basis for this. Exhaustion, stress, and too little sleep all cause the brain’s temperature to increase. Yawning may be an effort by the body to bring down the brain’s temperature, thereby making us feel more energetic.

As far as ‘contagious’ yawning is concerned, the Vienna researchers found that both the groups yawned most when the air outside the body was the right temperature to cool down the body temperature, but not when the air was too cold or too hot. Breathing in too hot or too cold air could potentially be dangerous to the brain. Those in Arizona thus yawned more in winter, while those from Austria yawned more during summer. This was when the outside temperature was in the optimal zone for cooling the brain.

This recent research is in line with that of the University of Albany, which used hot and cold packs for their studies. When watching a video of people yawning, the majority of their subjects tended to yawn when they had a hot pack on their head. Only a small minority yawned when applying a cold pack.

However, there’s also a possibility that yawning is a reflex action controlled by neurotransmitters in the hypothalamus, with this action leading to an increase in these neurotransmitters, certain hormones, and neuropeptide proteins.

Yawning and Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome

Excessive yawning is often an overlooked symptom of adrenal fatigue, and it is often at its worst right before the adrenals crash. Other symptoms include: https://www.drlam.com/articles/adrenal_fatigue.asp

AFS and Excessive yawning

  • hormonal imbalance
  • constant fatigue
  • mood disorders like anxiety and depression
  • metabolic issues such as weight gain or blood sugar problems
  • cravings such as for salt, sugar, or caffeine
  • low blood pressure
  • sleep issues such as insomnia
  • cognitive issues such as trouble remembering things
  • thyroid issues like hypothyroidism, feeling a cold, or dry skin

What is adrenal fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue is a surprisingly common condition, which frequently goes unidentified and is often brought on by chronic stress. Excessive yawning could be a sign of this condition.

Your adrenal glands are each situated on top of a kidney. Their main function is facilitating the body’s automatic stress response, producing cortisol to ready the body for dealing with stress. This system is called the NeuroEndoMetabolic (NEM) Stress Response. This automatic response system is governed by the brain and starts with the hypothalamus. When the hypothalamus perceives stress (which may be due to physical, psychological, or environmental factors), it sends chemical messengers – neurotransmitters – to the pituitary gland, which in turn sends chemical messengers to the adrenal glands. The adrenals increase cortisol production for the body to prepare itself to either fight or flee. These three, the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and adrenal glands, are collectively referred to as the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis.

Usually, once the threat has gone, the cortisol production in the adrenal glands returns to normal. However, when the stress continues, the adrenals continue with their heightened cortisol production. This has far-reaching consequences for the human biome.

Consequences of elevated cortisol

The precursor hormone to cortisol and most other hormones is pregnenolone. It is manufactured primarily from cholesterol. Due to pregnenolone being constantly changed into cortisol, not enough is available for the production of other, much-needed hormones in the body including progesterone, estrogen, thyroid hormones, and even dopamine (the feel-good hormone) in the brain.

Your digestive system slows down, while your immune system becomes compromised. Cortisol reduces your immune activities by blocking signals sent to T-cells and inhibiting inflammation, which is an essential part of the immune response.

In the meantime, your heart rate increases and your blood pressure and sugar levels rise, supplying the extra energy in an effort to prepare you to fight or run away from danger. The brain itself needs to focus on the situation at hand, and certain areas at the front of the brain are also suppressed by means of neurotransmitters sent from the hypothalamus. Brain fog, for example, is common during this period and one of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue.

At some point, the adrenal glands cannot keep up with the demand for cortisol, and they start failing. It is usually during this period, just before adrenal exhaustion kicks in, that yawning is common click here to find out more.

Resolving Inflammation: The Heart of Chronic Illness

light-therapy-resolving-inflammation-35115-4

Inflammation is at the heart of almost all chronic diseases including cancer, obesity, and heart disease, making it the leading cause of death in the U.S. Resolving inflammation should be a priority for anyone consciously choosing a healthy lifestyle. There are many methods for eliminating and or controlling inflammation, from alternative methods such as natural foods, spices, teas, and light therapy, to more conventional approaches such as hormone replacements and medicines.

While inflammation is a normal and often beneficial process, naturally occurring to fight foreign invaders like bacteria and viruses, it can also lead to severe damage when it happens too often or at an inappropriate time. It is part of the body’s natural mechanism for healing and repairing damage, whether it is from an external cut or an internal problem, for example with the colon, heart, or brain.

The key to resolving inflammation is in prevention. This can be done by incorporating a few easy and healthy lifestyle changes into your everyday life.

How Do You Know If You Have Inflammation?

There are four classic symptoms of inflammation: redness, swelling, heat, and pain. You may not experience any of these at first, especially with low-level inflammation, but as time goes by, they may appear. Even if you can’t see or feel these symptoms, they could still be taking place in your body.

Inside your body, where you can’t see it or feel it, ongoing inflammation can trigger heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis. When inflammation is caused by health conditions such as diabetes, fibromyalgia, adrenal fatigue, arthritis, or irritable bowel syndrome, it does not shut itself off as it should and may progressively worsen over time.

Inflammation is part of the NeuroEndoMetabolic(NEM) Stress Response, how the body handles stress. This system governs our body’s inflammatory responses and how the body detoxifies itself. The NEM stress response defends against oxidative damage, prevents stress from damaging cells further, and reduces the body’s toxicity levels. It also ensures a steady supply of glucose to keep the brain on alert during stressful events.

Aside from all the other previously listed damages that occur from inflammation, a failure in the NEM system can add more health problems to the list. That can result in an imbalance to the internal microbiome, a halt in the detoxification process, a reduction in the nutrient delivery system, and delays in recovery from physical or emotional trauma.

Resolving Inflammation

If you have an inflammatory condition or would like to decrease the likelihood of developing one, there are several methods you can use for preventing and resolving inflammation:

  • Hormone therapy
  • Optimizing your nutrition
  • Detoxification
  • Reducing physical and mental stressors
  • Light therapy

Hormone Imbalance Therapy

Hormones, stress, and inflammation maintain a steady relationship. As hormones decline, inflammation and illnesses increase. With increasing stress, hormones also decline.

The primary anti-inflammatory hormones decline naturally with age. Although hormone levels may test in the normal range, they may still be operating at insufficient levels to maintain organs and prevent diseases. Cortisol, in particular, is a major anti-inflammatory hormone for the body. Restoring balance to the other hormones helps to balance cortisol levels and reduce inflammation.

Optimizing Your Nutrition

resolving inflammation with the foods you eat

The most powerful method for controlling and resolving inflammation is under your control, although many don’t know how important nutrition really is. Much inflammation begins in the stomach and intestines, and anti-inflammatory food choices are a prime place to begin a program for resolving inflammation.

The best food choices emphasize organic, raw, plant-based proteins and superfoods. Nutritionists recommend eating four meals a day: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack, more if you are pregnant. They also recommend the following guidelines:

  • Plenty of vegetables, especially cruciferous ones
  • Whole grains, nuts, and seeds
  • Avoid meats, fish, dairy, and eggs
  • Avoid fried, overcooked, and microwaved foods
  • Stay away from canned and boxed foods with chemicals and preservatives

Note that an anti-inflammatory diet is not the same as an adrenal fatigue diet. A compromise may be needed to blend the two if you suffer from both conditions: https://www.drlam.com/articles/adrenal_fatigue.asp.

It is also beneficial to take certain supplements such as a multivitamin, minerals, and fish oil. There many supplements available that can aid in resolving inflammation.

Vitamin A can play a major role in keeping your immune system from overreacting and causing inflammation. Some studies on beta-carotene found it was connected with a slower progression of chronic arthritis and helped to head off heart disease. The B vitamins, including B6, B9 (or folic acid), and B12, can lower homocysteine levels and C-reactive proteins, all signs of inflammation. Vitamin C is a great antioxidant that helps rid the body of free radicals that can cause damage in the cells and tissue, which reduces triggers for inflammation.

However, as with anything, be sure to take the appropriate amount of the vitamin or supplement for your body, considering the recommended daily allowance and other research. Always consult your primary care physician or nutritionist prior to commencing any new nutrition regimen.

Another great way to enhance the nutrient density of your diet is by using herbs and cooking spices as they contain a multitude of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. In fact, herbs rank higher in antioxidant levels than most fruits and vegetables, and many studies have shown that they also have unique medicinal qualities.

This was confirmed in a study conducted by top researchers from three universities who wanted to evaluate the true benefits of herbs and spices. They wanted to measure the physiological changes that occurred in the blood after consumption and whether the adsorbed compounds were able to protect white blood cells from oxidative or inflammatory injury. Could the herbs and spices actually protect DNA strands from breaking when under attack by free radicals?

Each of the 130 participants was given a small amount of a particular spice to consume daily for seven consecutive days. Blood samples were drawn prior to consumption and at the end of the trial period. A blood analysis was conducted to search for antioxidant capacity and to see how inflammation in the white blood cells was affected. It was found that four spices, in particular, had significantly positive effects on the inflammatory response system: clove, ginger, rosemary, and turmeric.

It is important to note that these responses were from exposure to normal levels of spices in food, not from the much higher levels in concentrated pill form. Participants took the same amount that might be found in spaghetti sauce or pumpkin pie.

Using herbs and spices for resolving inflammation

The following were additional helpful anti-inflammatory herbs and spices:

  • Cinnamon
  • Jamaican allspice
  • Oregano
  • Marjoram
  • Sage
  • Thyme

Next time you are cooking, don’t be hesitant to add in a few more spices!

However, if you have adrenal fatigue, it is important to consider your sensitivities at this point as well. In advanced stages of adrenal fatigue, your body may be more sensitive to these spices, so proceed with caution.

Detoxification

Toxins are considered one of the biggest contributors to inflammation. There are three main components to resolving inflammation from toxins in the body.

First, it is recommended that you reduce any exposure toxin sources such as gases, paints, glues, preservatives, dyes, heavy metals, plastics, phthalates, bisphenol-A (BPA), and electromagnetic radiation, just to name a few.

Second, make an effort to remove toxins from the body by optimizing bowel, liver, lymph, kidney, and skin function.

Third, it is extremely important to keep your body hydrated. It is recommended to drink ½ of your body weight daily in ounces of pure water to assist in the detoxification process.

Probiotics: A Source of Healthy Food for Family

Probiotics

Food and Medicine

A healthy eating pattern has become a culture in daily human life since long. By eating healthy foods, our metabolism will be healthy and normal.

The motto of ‘make the food as medicine’ has grown steadily in recent decades. This trend indicates if a diet or food intake becomes an important key in preventing and treating various human health problems, without prejudice to the development of innovative medicines that exist today.

Functional foods are defined as food that is naturally or through processing (refined products) contain one or more functional components based on scientific studies and have certain physiological functions, as well as proved not harmful to health.

Digestive-Health-768x384

One of these functional foods are Probiotics.
Probiotics is a functional food ingredient which has become the trend of food and recommended by many health experts.
All products of probiotics successfully occupy the top foods with high sales rankings.
However, as a consumer, we certainly have to be smart in choosing the right food for our family and known well what effects could be happened in our body.

Food must not only contain high nutritional values, but also able to make healthy and not trigger the disease. And probiotic products meets this requirement.

As is well known, experts who are members of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the World Health Organization (WHO) have agreed on the definition of probiotics as live microorganisms which when consumed in sufficient quantities can provide health benefits for its host (2002).

Lactic acid bacteria (LAB), including strains of bacteria that most of its declared as probiotics are eligible if as follows:

– A LAB is categorized as ‘generally recognized as safe’ (GRAS).

– LAB is still alive during processing and storing.

– LAB can survive in acidic conditions and bile salts in the digestive tract.

– LAB can attach to the intestinal epithelium.

– LAB was antagonistic against pathogenic bacteria.

Species of the LAB classified as probiotics including Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus Plantarum, Bifidobacterium spp, and Lactococcus lactis.

To determine whether the bacteria classified as probiotics or not, every strain of bacteria must pass through a variety of scientific testing, as well as safe for human consumption.

Probiotic bacteria analogous to the forefront of the army in the human digestive tract. This is because probiotics greatly affect in balancing the gut microflora in the digestive tract between good bacteria and bad bacteria.
Balancing in microflora atmosphere will affect the pattern of digestion and absorption of food in the digestive tract.

Other positive effects of probiotics on health include:

– Able to reduce the risk of lactose intolerance.

Lactose intolerance is a symptom of diarrhea that occurs in human when drinking milk. This is because humans have no enzymes that degrade lactose milk. However, probiotics are able to do it, so the process of digestion and absorption of the milk sugar is not in the form of lactose.

– Reduce the risk of diarrhea.

Diarrhea can be triggered by various factors. One is due to gastrointestinal infections caused by excessive growth of pathogenic bacteria.

And, probiotics could inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria due to their abilities to produce antimicrobial compounds and lactic acid (a potent weapon to inhibit pathogenic bacteria), so the number of pathogenic bacteria in the digestive tract decreased, and finally, infections and diarrhea can be cured.

– Binds carcinogens.

Some research suggests that probiotics are able to bind carcinogenic compounds (in vitro), such as heterocyclic amines during cooking of meat, fungal toxin aflatoxin B1, benzo(a) Pirene, and food contaminated with aflatoxin AF2. That absorption due to Cation exchange mechanism.

– Prevent cancer.

Increasing the concentration of probiotics in each consumption can reduce the bacterial enzyme that plays a role to activate or synthesize carcinogens, genotoxic, and tumor promoters.
In addition, probiotics can reduce the level of enzymes in the colon that converts pro-carcinogens into carcinogens. Specifically, probiotics can reduce the level of enzyme glucuronidase, azobenzene reductase, and nitroreductase.

– Lowering the pH of the colon.

Fermentation carried out by probiotics can reduce the pH of the colon with the formation of organic acids likes lactic acid and short chain fatty acid (SCFA), such as butyric acid, propionic, and acetic acid, making probiotics can maintain the condition of the colon to avoid cancer risk.

– Enhance immune response.

Probiotics can reduce the inflammatory response. This is indicated by studies of mice injected with tumor cells and given probiotics.

In the study, this treatment can reduce the occurrence of inflammation by increased immunoglobulin A (IgA) and lymphocyte cells of T CD 4+.

In addition, studies in humans also showed that consumption of probiotics can enhance the phagocytic activity of immune cells monocytes and granulocytes, and increased levels of antibodies secreted by B lymphocytes immune cells.

Solis et al. (2002) also reported that administration of fermented milk can improve the production of IFN-y interferon in children who are malnourished.

– Overcome constipation.

Constipation is caused by the transit of food debris in the colon that are too long, so it accumulated and becomes hard.

In this case, probiotics can degrades the food debris and help increase peristaltic bowel movement so that the transit time of food in the large intestine will be shorter, and ultimately did not causes constipation.

However, because probiotics are live microorganisms, it is important to pay attention to the dose of daily consumption of probiotics.
World food experts advise people to consume at least 100 ml of probiotics that containing BAL about 1 million cells/mL every day.

From the above benefits, it is time to change the pattern of our daily intake by consuming a healthy food source, such as with probiotics.

In USA, consumption of probiotics contained in fermented milk products has become a daily consumption for the health of intestines, other organs and body’s system.

Maximize Your Protein Per Serving

Protein is a vital nutrient that your body needs to thrive. How you fulfill this need is up to you, and there are plenty of options to choose from. Adding a variety of protein sources to your diet is wise, as each contains their own individual nutrient profile and a combination of amino acids. Your body needs a variety of both to be at its healthiest. Knowing all your options and understanding the best protein per serving foods can help you add flavor and variety to your diet.

What is So Great About Protein?

Protein is one of the building blocks of life as its presence in the body is essential to cell regeneration and repair, and building muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. It is a part of every cell, and the body would cease to function without some source of it to work with. The body actually needs large amounts of protein to sustain itself which classifies it as a macronutrient. The body needs it to be delivered consistently by external sources to nourish the system. If you are craving protein, it’s probably for a good reason.

What are Amino Acids?

Just as protein is one of the primary building blocks of the human body, amino acids are the building blocks of all proteins. The amino acids are linked together in the protein molecule in a unique fashion known as peptide linkage. Upon digestion, the protein is split into its component amino acids, which are then used to serve the body accordingly. As you will see in the protein per the serving chart below, the ultimate value of a food protein lies in its amino acid composition adrenal fatigue treatment.

Maximize your protein per serving for your amino acids

All proteins are not created equal. There are many amino acids and amino acid combinations, and you must get them from food. The human body needs a number of amino acids in large enough amounts to maintain good health. Amino acids are found in animal sources such as meats, milk, fish, and eggs. Some plants, such as beans, legumes, nut butter, and grains like wheat germ and quinoa, can also be good sources of amino acids.

There are three classifications of amino acids. They are:

  • Essential Amino Acids. The term ‘essential’ means that they can not be made by the body and that they must be supplied through nutrition. Consuming them throughout the day, rather than all in one meal, is important.
  • Nonessential Amino Acids. These acids are created by the body using essential amino acids or in the process of the proteins breaking down.
  • Conditional Amino Acids. These are amino acids that are required due to special medical conditions such as illness and stress. Their synthesis is limited to certain pathophysiological conditions.

Plant-Based Proteins vs. Animal Proteins

Contrary to what many think, you do not need to eat animal products to get all the protein you need in your diet. There are many plant sources that give you just as much protein as animal products. In fact, many plant proteins offer even more health benefits above and beyond that of typical plant-based protein sources such as soy, legumes, and hemp.

Although an eight-ounce steak provides you with an adequate amount of protein, which your body needs, it also comes with a large amount of saturated fat, which can cause high cholesterol and other problems. On the other hand, many plant proteins provide a healthy source of fat, which is essential in your diet.

Protein Per Serving

The amount of protein a person needs in their diet varies according to the individual. On average, a healthy adult should consume approximately 10%-35% of their total caloric needs in protein. As an example, a person on a 2000 calorie diet would need 100 grams of protein (at 4 calories per gram) to supply their body with 20% of the daily calorie intake.

The following are a variety of good protein sources and their associated protein per serving content.

Navy Beans

Beans are a great source of protein per serving

Protein Content: 1 cup is equal to 6 g of protein per serving

Beans are an excellent supply of protein per serving. Along with its impressive protein content, one cup of beans also provides 19 grams of dietary fiber.

Dried Lentils

Protein Content: 1 cup is equal to 19 g of protein per serving

As an easy alternative to beans, lentils don’t require a presoak of any sort. You can simply cook and eat them in 20 minutes. Along with the great protein they provide, their nutrient profile also includes 16 grams of fiber and a vibrant range of minerals.
