What is protein?


Protein is the key building block of all body tissue.  It is part of the fundamental structure of bone, skin, muscle and cartilage. In addition, protein is also a key component of the enzymes that fuel biochemical reactions and is found as part of hemoglobin, the molecule responsible for transporting oxygen throughout the body.  Protein is made up of chains of amino acids.  The body requires 22 amino acids, 8 of which are essential and must be consumed in the diet.  The most common sources of dietary protein include beef, chicken, fish, pork, eggs, milk and cheese.  For those looking to increase lean muscle mass, when combined with resistance training, protein intake plays an important role in the growth and repair of lean muscle tissue. In addition to food sources, protein powder supplements can be a convenient way to meet your daily protein needs, and help you achieve your fitness and wellness goals.
