The power of protein

Protein is an essential macronutrient required as part of a healthy and balanced diet. It’s an important source that contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass and normal bones.

But beyond helping us get buff, proteins contain essential amino acids, which we use to make the many proteins in each and every cell in our body. So yeah, it’s powerful stuff.
