Today’s guest is Dr Robert Wolfe who is an expert in the role that protein and amino acids play in our health and vitality.

Dr Wolfe has an incredible biography. His career has spanned more than 50 years and at the age of 75, he is still involved in education and research. He has published over 600 peer-reviewed papers, review articles and book chapters. He has been cited more than 50,000 times in the scientific literature. I think it’s fair to say, he might know a little bit about protein.

We start by talking about protein and its importance in providing amino acids to our body. Dr Wolfe explains the difference between the essential and the non-essential amino acids and how these are used to build over 3,000 different protein structures in our body.

We are all aware of the importance of protein – amino acids in building and maintaining muscle, but these are vital for all our other body processes as well.

Dr Wolfe is a fan of maintaining muscle and he describes how this provides a metabolic sink for glucose, preventing insulin resistance and type-2 diabetes as well as acting as a reservoir for amino acids between meals. We need a constant supply of these in our bloodstream and our muscle provides these when we aren’t eating.

We also discuss some of the myths about protein and disease – heart health, diabetes, kidney function and mental health.

Dr Wolfe is the Chief Scientific Officer for a company called “The Amino Company” that produces formulations of amino acids for different groups. He is also the author of ‘A Guide to Amino Acid and Protein Nutrition: Essential Amino Acid Solutions for Everyone”. He calls this the EAASE programme. I am enjoying this book and it is a great summary of Dr Wolfe's research and experience in a very readable format.

We ran out of time today for all the questions I had – Dr Wolfe has agreed to come back for part 2, which I’m looking forward to very much.
