How important is protein to the human body? Before answering that question, let’s explore what protein is.
What does a car need for it to move? Fuel, right? Without it, you’re not going anywhere. That’s the simplest way to describe what protein is. It’s fuel for the body for it to function. It provides energy. But that’s not all it does, the body needs protein for growth and maintenance. It is the most important component of cells in the body that includes organs, hair, skin, and especially muscles.

Because of this, when someone who’s health conscious checks out any food product, they would automatically check the back to see how much calories it has.
