protein

Proteins are made up of amino acids; in the amino acids family, there are ten ‘essential amino acids’ [that is, ones we don’t produce internally]. These are the ones we must consume some through food to ensure adequate regulation, maintenance, and function of our bodies. Protein directly affects the growth of hair, nails, and skin, as well as the development of muscle, bone, and blood tissues.Half of the dietary protein we consume helps make enzymes: these enzymes permit basic functions like digestion, assimilation of nutrients, and communication throughout the nervous system.In addition to animal products, proteins can be found in a number of different plant-based sources: beans, grains, nuts, and leafy grains are some of the best options. When we combine different proteins in a given meal, we increase the likelihood of ingesting complete proteins, as these assimilate altogether in the body.
