When an individual thinks about starting a workout program, the first thing which clicks us is “we have to buy protein powder now”, and many people drop their idea of adopting workout as a lifestyle because either they think that whey protein powder isn’t good for health or they think it’s going to be too expensive.

To begin with, you can still achieve your dream physique without including protein as powder in your diet, and yes, that’s true.

This article will help you in clearing your doubts.

Before knowing protein as powder, let’s understand “what is protein”?

So, Protein is a macronutrient that is important to building muscle mass. It is naturally found in animal products, though also present in other sources, such as nuts and legumes.

Chemically, Protein is formed of amino acids and organic mixtures made of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen or sulfur

Merely as amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and proteins are the building blocks of muscle mass.

When Protein is broken down, it helps fuel muscle mass, which helps metabolism.

So, it is clear that Protein is required to build the muscles.

Now, let’s understand “what is Protein powder?”

Protein powder is a very famous nutritional supplement. It is the same nutrition which we consume through natural food, but it’s in a different form because, in today’s fast-forwarded world, people do not have sufficient time to include so many natural food items, so we go with the shortcuts which are easy to carry, easy to consume and the most important ‘which we can consume fast’.

Different types of protein powder

There are several additional types of protein powder. Whey is still the most famous protein supplement that experimenters have tended to focus on, but it is not the only option. Common types of protein powder include:

  • Whey: This water-soluble milk protein is famous among athletes. It is a whole protein, meaning it includes all of the amino acids the human body needs from food. The body soaks whey protein quickly and easily.
  • Casein: This kind of Protein is affluent in glutamine, an amino acid that speeds up muscle recovery after a workout. Casein comes from dairy, making it unfit for vegans and people with milk allergies. The body digests this Protein more gradually, so it may be most beneficial to take it at night.
  • Soy: Soy protein is an ideal option for whey or casein for individuals who do not consume dairy. It also includes all the necessary amino acids.
  • Pea: Numerous plant-based protein powders include pea protein and high-quality soy- and dairy-based protein options. Pea protein is a valuable source of the amino acid arginine.
  • Hemp: Hemp seeds are total proteins that also include critical fatty acids. This makes hemp a perfect choice for vegans or those with dairy or soy allergies.

We hope now you got to know about Protein, Protein as a supplement and types of protein powder.

Now let’s understand how you can achieve your dream physique without including Protein as a powder?

 The primary work of Protein is building the muscle mass, and Protein is formed of amino acids and organic combinations made of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen or sulfur

The most exciting part is that our body doesn’t understand whether we are consuming powder or natural food; it simply understands that we are consuming Protein and its quantity.

If you have sufficient resources and time to consume the required Protein from natural food, you can go with that option because nothing could be better than natural food resources, and you’ll be able to achieve your dream physique by giving it the required amount of nutrition.

Marburg Virus kills two people, the first cases confirmed in Ghana.

Khushi Thapa, Mumbai Uncensored, 21st July 2022:

Ghana officially confirmed two cases of the Marburg virus, a highly contagious disease comparable to Ebola, on Sunday, after two patients who subsequently died tested positive for the virus earlier this month.

On July 10, tests carried out in Ghana revealed positive results; however, the World Health Organization stated that the cases had to be confirmed by a laboratory in Senegal.

Ghana Health Service (GHS) released a statement saying that additional testing at the Institute Pasteur in Dakar, Senegal, “has validated the results.”

Despite the fact that none of the contacts has yet shown any symptoms, GHS is taking steps to lessen the chance of the virus spreading, including isolating all of them.

The Marburg virus has just recently spread to West Africa twice. Guinea reported the region’s first incidence of the virus last year, but no other cases have been found.\

“(Ghanaian) health authorities have responded swiftly, getting a head start preparing for a possible outbreak. This is good because, without immediate and decisive action, Marburg can easily get out of hand,” said Matshidiso Moeti, WHO Regional Director for Africa.

Wimbledon 2022 Women Singles Final Highlights: Elena Rybakina defeats Ons Jabeur 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, clinches Maiden Wimbledon Title

Shobit Chandola, Mumbai Uncensored, 16th July 202:

On 9th July, 2022 the Wimbledon got its winner in the Women’s Singles with none other than Russian born Kazak, Elena Rybakina who defeated the Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur with 3-6, 6-2, 6-2. Wimbledon this year, for the first time in a while, witnessed 2 finalists seeking their maiden title. What could be termed as unpredictability is that the fan’s favourite contenders were all eliminated before. While the Record 7 Wimbledon title winner Serena Williams was shocked by H. Tan in  the 1st Round, it was Paula Badosa underperforming in the Round of 16 and  the astonishing defeat of the Former Wimbledon Champion Simona Halep in the Semifinal.That too came from the end of Elena Rybakina who vanquished Simona in straight sets 6-3, 6-3.

As could be seen in the epic thriller, the first set was won by Ons Jabeur whose drop shots and forehand made Rybakina go for many unforced errors. But post conceding the 1st set, Rybakina changed the gear for all the trailing in 1st set and ensured enough aces and volley to make it 6-2 in the 2nd set for 1-1 tie. For the 3rd set, Elena led with 2-0 but got holded by Jabeur to make it 3-2 but outshined Jabeur with a 5-2, finally breaking the latter’s serve in the decider.

Not to forget the incredible journey of Ons Jabeur so far. It was the World No 2 Ons Jabeur who became the first Arab and african women to become the Wimbledon finalist but wasn’t at her best to defeat the 17th seed Elena Rybakina who switched her nationality to Kazakhstan in 2018 (owing to the lack of funding and infrastructure for her game) before representing Russia. Just like Elena who wrote the history as the first kazakh to be claimed as winner in the Wimbledon, it could have been the same to Ons too being the first Arab and African women.Though the losing cause made the Ons emotional, it was her grit, determination and the post match interview which reflected her strong character.

In the Post Match Interview, the Introvert Champion Elena had her say on the Wimbledon title. She stated “I was super nervous before the match, during the match and I’m happy it’s finished, to be honest. Really I have never felt something like this. I want to thank the crowd for the support, it was unbelievable these two weeks,” the 23-year-old said. But also I want to congratulate Ons for a great match and everything you have achieved. I think you are an inspiration for everybody. You have an amazing game. We don’t have someone like this on tour and it is a joy to play against you. I ran so much, I don’t think I need to do fitness anymore”. With this title, Elena became the youngest player to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish since 2011.
