Getting enough protein in your diet is important for everyone, but especially for those living with chronic illness. Protein plays a variety of different functions in the body. Firstly, protein is essential for healthy immunity. Protein is often referred to as making up the “building blocks of life”, responsible for tissue repair, enzyme production, hormones, muscle building etc. When we don’t get enough protein in our diet, we can compromise our immunity… And building up the immune system is something recommended for anyone suffering from illness. If you’re experiencing changes in appetite following cancer treatment, supplementing with Sunwarrior Protein Powder is a great way of ensuring daily protein levels are topped up.
