Protein Rich Sabzis, High protein Indian Vegetables
Protein is one of the major nutrients required by the body. The most important function of protein is to support cell health. Each and every cell, tissue and organ of the body needs protein. It helps in the maintenance of cells and also their wear and tear. If you get hurt and a new layer of skin appears with time, it’s because of protein. It helps in transport of oxygen to all cells of the body too. Hair and nails also grow with the help of protein. Moreover bones, which support our body, also need protein for their strength.
Sarson ka Saag
An adult man needs approx. 60 g and an adult woman needs approx. 55 g of protein daily. Depending on the amount of work that an individual performs, the protein requirement varies though. During phases of illness, surgery and during recuperation, the protein requirement increases as the body needs it for building anti-bodies and for the regeneration of lost tissues, especially during periods of blood loss to make up for the lost blood.
