Home Health Hint of the Week: Protein


The Power of Protein

Nurses With Heart is excited to add another home health hint to our weekly video blog. Every week we post a short video related to staying safe and healthy at home. This week we discuss protein and its importance to your health.

Just like our vlog about water, protein is extremely important to your everyday health. It plays a part in just about every bodily element and function, from organs, tissues, muscles, to hormones. Proteins found in foods are used by every part of the body to develop, grow and function properly. This is why it is critical to ensure that you are eating enough on a daily basis. However, it can be confusing to know where to find this nutrient and how much of it to eat. Watch the following video to find out more about sources of protein as well as how much you should be eating daily.

Thanks for watching!
