Eating enough protein is vital for optimal health.

What’s more, this nutrient is particularly important for weight loss (52).

High protein intake can boost metabolism significantly while making you feel full enough to automatically eat fewer calories. It can also reduce cravings and your desire to snack late at night (53, 54, 55, 56).

Sufficient protein intake has also been shown to lower blood sugar and blood pressure levels (57, 58).
