Protein

Protein is one of the most important substances in our bodies found in every single cell. Because the body uses this protein for many vital processes, we need to consistently replace it and we do this by regularly eating foods with protein. Just some of the ways that our bodies use protein include synthesizing new proteins (which allow our bodies to perform basic functions),

A specific type of protein known as structural proteins can be found in every cell in the human body. They are stringy and fibrous and their structure is crucial for their role in providing support. These proteins are responsible for giving our bodies structure and because of this we could not do basic tasks such as stand, walk or run without them. Another specific protein found in the body is collagen and this is present in bones, tendons, ligaments and skin. Collagens as well as elastin help support these connective tissues.

Notes: Certain proteins are great at building muscle and they include:

  • Red meat: pork, beef, lamp, bison, venison, etc.
  • Fish: salmon, tuna, swordfish, mackerel, trout, bass, etc.
  • Poultry breast: turkey, duck, chicken, etc.
  • Eggs: although the yolk contains high amounts of cholesterol, having one or two eggs a day is good for you
