It’s no secret that we need protein for building muscle. We all know it. After any type of workout in order to repair and rebuild lean muscle tissue we require protein. However, perhaps a lesser-known fact is that protein also serves a further critical function. It helps your immune system fight infection and guards your body against illness. That makes pretty important stuff in our diet. It does so by supporting the body’s T-Cells which attack opportunistic invaders according to the National Library of Medicine. So, not only will a lack of protein leave you tired or feeling weak but it will also mean a weakened immune system with a lowered response. Does anyone want that? The answer is a resounding, ‘no’.
A balanced diet is said to be the best way to ensure the body is provided with all the nutrients it needs to take care of itself. Whilst foods such as poultry, lean beef and eggs are a great source of protein their preparation may not always be convenient or compatible with busy lifestyles. Hence why we recommend healthy and convenient M-EAT! biltong.
We source only the finest cuts of lean British beef for our biltong from farmers that we’ve long established relationships with. This in turn makes our beef entirely traceable; adding value to our biltong. However, as we are here discussing the importance of protein for a healthy immune system let us add that M-EAT! contains an average 54% protein per 100 grams. In fact, our Original and Peri Peri flavours contain as much as 60% protein per 100 grams. Quite impressive. Even if we do say so ourselves.
For convenience and a variety of ways to increase protein in your balanced diet you will find easy to follow recipes which are regularly uploaded to our website. There is also a wealth of information on the nutritional value of M-EAT! included in our blog. We do this because we value the benefits of the biltong we offer you. Whilst it may be a tasty snack or a welcome addition to spice up an otherwise dull dish, M-EAT! (much like protein) serves a critical function in your diet. It contains the protein you need daily to keep your immune system healthy and working at its best. We’ve made things simpler and easier by creating award-winning flavours you love and delivering your delicious biltong order free of charge, anywhere in the UK. So, all that is left for you to do is enjoy it!
