October 2017 - What is Protein Anyway?

Happy October!

This is when we really get to see the kaleidoscope of fall colors. I hope you enjoy the gift that each season offers us. It took becoming a farmer for me to truly appreciate the variations found in each season.

Health to you!

So what is Protein anyway?

As soon as someone finds out we are vegans the first question they ask is, "Where do you get your protein?" Of course our response is, "From our organic Alfalfa leaf powder, it has more protein than beef. Remember that cows don't eat cows, they eat alfalfa and grass! These animals have big strong bones, muscles and teeth!"

Keep in mind some of the largest and strongest mammals on earth eat a vegan diet, i.e. gorillas, elephants, cows, horses etc.

FYI~ There has never been a documented case of protein deficiency in anyone who had some kind of food to eat. Protein deficiency only occurs when one has NO food.

I had recently heard that ALL protein originates from plants. Initially I was lead to believe that it was some transformation that happened during photosynthesis. But the deeper I delved I found it had to do with the roots, and the soil with mineral ions for making amino acids, which are needed to make proteins.

I found it very interesting that a protein is made up of sub-units called amino acids. When we consume protein, our body breaks the protein into its individual amino acids, then our body takes the different amino acids and reconnects them to create a different protein to suit its needs at the time.

It is said that our body creates over 10,000 different kinds of proteins to keep our body in tip top shape.

Essential amino acids are the ones we need to consume because our body doesn't make them on its own. Our organic Alfalfa has 16 amino acids, 8 of which are classed as essential. No wonder we thrive!

So for the meat eaters and the plant eaters both, rejoice! Our human body is so amazing that it will transform the protein we eat, to suit its needs. As always, the proof is in your current state of health. Need some Alfalfa? Thrive On!!

Health and Happiness to you always!
