The Importance of Protein
What is protein and why do we need it? Protein is composed of chains of amino acids and constitutes about 20% of our total body weight. It functions as the structural material of muscles, other tissues and organs, as well as important bi-substances such as enzymes and many hormones. Without protein, we could not live.
Protein is also converted to glucose and used as a source of energy. When there is limited protein intake, the needs of the organs take priority over the needs of the muscles. While other nutrients are equally important, protein provides a key foundation for good health.
