The Health Benefits of Grits
- Satisfies Your Appetite
Leucine and MuscleThe Institute of Medicine recommends that you take in 55 milligrams of the essential amino acid leucine for every gram of protein you consume. Corn is rich in leucine, and a bowl of grits gives you 542 milligrams of it. If you normally take in 50 grams of protein a day, grits provide 20 percent of your daily requirement for leucine. Leucine is particularly important for the elderly and people at risk for losing muscle mass. Researchers who published a study in "Clinical Nutrition" in 2012 found that people who ate reduced-protein meals but took a leucine supplement for two weeks experienced improved protein synthesis, indicating that a diet rich in this amino acid may help prevent loss of muscle.
