Benefits of Protein
Protein is an important component of every cell in the body, such as hair and nails. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues and make enzymes, hormones and other body chemicals. It’s also an important building blog of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood!
Unlike carbs and fat, the body does not store protein. So, it has no reserves to draw from when it needs them – which is why you need to eat it!
