High blood pressure: A protein-rich diet could slash risk of the condition by 66 percent

While it may seem that vegans and vegetarians could be missing out on their protein needs, the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) states otherwise.

“It is now understood that protein from a variety of plant foods, eaten during a day, supplies enough of all the essential amino acids when caloric requirements are met,” the BNF made clear.

Protein is the second most abundant component in the body and the macronutrient found in muscles, the blood, and skin.

The BNF elaborated: “When protein is consumed it is metabolised into amino acids and the body contains a pool of amino acids which are used to synthesise any proteins which are needed.”
