Proteins account for 20% of our total body weight.
Did you know that after water, protein is the 2nd most important nutrient in our body? It is vital for our healthy growth and muscle wear and tear. It is omnipresent and can be found in skin, hair, blood, muscles, organs, and even fingernails. From digestion, to strengthening muscles to repairing tissues and transporting nutrients, protein plays an important role in every bodily process.
The bottom line: Fuel your body with the requisite amount of protein daily.
Fact: Unlike carbs and fats, your body does not hold on to protein. Keep refuelling your body with it because it has no protein reserve!
