#protein is an essential macronutrient for a functioning body. 🕺But not every protein is the same. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, they’re like the legos of Legoland. 🏰 There are a total of 20 amino acids that partner up in different ways to make all the proteins in our body. Our body can make most of these amino acids on its own, but there are 8 amino acids that have to come from a dietary source. These are called the essential amino acids. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not every source of protein has all 8 of the essential amino acids. This is why it is important to eat a variety of foods! Grains, legumes, eggs, meat, fish, nuts/seeds, and dairy products are all sources of protein. 🍚🥜🍳🍖🐟🥛

#healthplanoftheday Blood Pressure What Is Blood Pressure? Blood pressure is the pressure that is exerted on the blood vessels as it circulates around the body. As the heart beats, the blood pressure varies from minimum (diastolic) to maximum (systolic) pressure. What Causes Blood Pressure Problems? The difference in the mean blood pressure is responsible for the blood flowing from one location into another through circulation. High blood pressure (hypertension) is measured in millimetres of mercury as either systolic, i.e. the pressure of blood when the heart beats to pump blood out, or diastolic, which is the pressure of blood when the heart is resting in between the beats. This is reflective of how strongly the arteries are resisting any blood flow. • Normal blood pressure is recorded as around 130/80mmHg as this is considered normal. • High blood pressure is in the region of 140/90mmHg or higher. • Low blood pressure is recorded as being around 90/60. Very high or low blood pressure may be the sign of underlying health problems, although high blood pressure is more dangerous to the body. High blood pressure risk increases with age and may be related to poor diet, obesity, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, diabetes, drinking excess alcohol, undergoing stress, and depression. Much of the time, there’s no need to be alarmed about having low blood pressure. Mild symptoms may be perfectly fine. Certain individuals have a naturally low, naturally healthy blood pressure.
